Luther Burrell is 31. He is being considered as a replacement for the increasingly elderly Ryan Atkins.

Would be a very average league player if he decides to make the switch.

Burrell is a good player. He could still do a job if his switch is for the right reasons. If he wants to challenge himself then welcome aboard. If he is being offered less money in un ion than we can manage then steer well clear.

Luther Burrell could do more good at London Broncos than at Warrington Wolves, but the owner David Hughes won't spend substantial money on anyone.

If Warrington are looking to replace a 33 year old you don’t go for a guy who be 32 when the 2020 season starts and hasn’t played RL since his teens. Why not go for a longer term prospect.

You're a bit of a tool bazza.......every player that becomes available you reckon London should sign them. I should revisit the Aussie boards and recommend every half baked player for your beloved sharkies....seriously buddy, get a life :roll:
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:
