    Just had a look, we used 6 outside backs this year. Denniss, Sione, Moga, Ross, Sio, SKD.

    At the moment they have Moga, Ross, Lee, Ramien, SKD and trying to get Jennings, which makes 6.

    Lee in for Sio, Ramien in for Sione, Jennings in for Denniss.

    I don't mind Sio going to be honest but I would offer Dennis a small upgrade on his last contract for 2 years because I think he will make a good winger and maybe centre not sure about centre though . At the very least he would be a cheap backup for both spots if needed and he is improving as a player imo .

    1 Ponga/Watson 2 SKD 3 Ramien 4 Moga 5 Lee 6 Watson/Ponga 7 Pearce ...That's a good looking backline right there , chock full of talent , power and speed if all fit and going well they will worry any team as long as the forwards are doing theyre job .
    Add Jennings to that and it looks better again and imo you don't lose talent you lose desire and will and 1 thing that can effect that is surroundings maybe a change of clubs would help there ..
    If he came here and played well we would have two explosive centre's with him and Ramien and if Moga was fit I would put him to wing outside Jennings and let Moga be our Beast , sounds good anyway .
    1 Ponga/Watson 2 SKD 3 Ramien 4 Jennings 5 Moga 6 Watson/Ponga 7 Pearce That's not bad either hey .

    It's a lot better than Sio/Ross/Sione/SKD, which was the most used combo this year.

    I like the look of the backline, certainly an improvement over last year and the best backline we have fielded in a long time.

    Fingers crossed we can get the forwards to take advantage of it.

    Ken scored a double in Salford's upset win in the first round.
    Luke Yates played in London's first game in the top grade in 5 years and wooden spoon favourites London scored an upset win over top 4 fancies Wakefield. Yates topped the tackle count and had the most metres per run in the forwards. Match reports said the small and fit London forwards outplayed the big Wakefield pack - but no report I read even mentioned Yates.

    Yeah I am happy for them it's amazing how the NRL's scrap heap is the ESL's treasure.

    After 2 games Salford are top of the table and Sio has scored 3 tries.
    Yates made 41 tackles in London's second game.
