OK with Jamie Sealey confirmed how about these 2 to finish the side. George Hunter (5.43) & Layne Cupitt (4.00) 

Both go well on the island too.

Was going pretty well for the Warriors. Maybe Danno can conquer his big track issues but feels like a big risk that could hurt the prospects of both rider and club.

It may be a risk but the fact that Danno (and Ben Morley) are showing the ambition to improve their all round riding skills, even though it may cost them in the short term, should be applauded.

It is the sort of commitment that should make them popular with fans. I hope it works out for both of them. (Last year signings of Campos and Portwood raised a few eyebrows, but both were very popular - so it is clear that such left field signings can work for the Warriors).

I know he's struggled on big tracks in the past, but as long as he can master Smallbrook it's fine and he should help us out away!

Probably the best team they have fielded since there return but unfortunately still not a team that will win all their home matches

Most teams look weaker this season ,but some sides have creamed of the best young riders..they are the likely to be top leagueI contenders ..IOW have a big home track advantage and if the signed riders get dialled in early Thay should do ok at home at least., I know  Ben Morley is investing heavily on the right engine for the big ,track,and is intent on giving IOW 110   .per cent...

I agree, and there will Be teams built that are far weaker than IOW the team definitely has potential for growth in Sealey Verge & Portwood. I think Campos avg is his swan song and widders won’t ever be much higher than what he is but it’s still a decent second string Morley will hit double figures wherever he goes In this league and Hopwood will probably finish on an 8 pointaverge or just under as he does score very well at IOW.

So do IOW fans believe in Morley they'll have the leagues strongest rider in 2018?

If not literally the strongest, he’ll be in the top 3 with Roynon & JPB.
