The transfer business has all but finished for most Super League teams now. There has been countless player movements, some good, some bad and some plain stupid. So, lets go into depth and scrutinize each team’s recruitment performance…
‘Classy Cas’ undoubtedly lost one of the classiest players in Super League when Luke Dorn announced his retirement. However I believe that Zak Hardaker can hit the form that lead to him winning the 2015 Man of Steel, if he does then he will be a fantastic replacement for Dorn.
After losing three forwards, Castleford clearly had to bring in replacements. They have brought two high quality forwards in with the signing of Patrick and Sene-Lefao. I fully expect Jesse Sene-Lefao to light Super League up this year.
Greg Eden will bring solid depth to Castleford’s already talented backline. The only question mark, in my opinion, is Denny Solomona’s replacement. Cas don’t seem to have brought one in, perhaps Eden will be first choice winger with Monaghan.
Larne Patrick – Huddersfield Giants
