Much as I hate to be fair on rodders it may have been a loan but it was one that he knew he’d never get back. Despite what another poster states I doubt he did get it paid back but maybe DC could clarify.

He did save the club for a short while as he did once before as far as I can recall which only makes his current actions even harder to understand.

I don't know for definate, but sure I had heard someone say a while back that this was being paid for in instalments during the Glover era.

Maybe wrong here, but maybe MC can clarify either way

He used the club as a P.R, vehicle for his own long term benefit on his way up. I'm sure his current "position" is of similar personal benefit.

Before his involvement with the Trust, most people in Wakefield would have been delighted that SRW was on "our" side but, the sale of BV and how it appeared to be done changed all of that and until, he (and his new trust) come out into the open and offer some kind of valid explanation and state their aims/objectives, they are just an obstacle and seem only there to muddy the waters and hamper the negotiations regarding the community stadium.
They (the other trust), assuming that it exists either need to show themselves or bugger off.

I know that politics is far from straight forward and property development even less so but, while all of the cloak and dagger stuff rumbles on, the very future of Wakefield Trinity remains in doubt.

Time to put up or shut up.

Well said Wrencat.

Totally agree with you.

If SRW is a honest man he should be open about his trust and explain why it exists and let everyone know why he signed what he did with regard to Newmarket.

Some people rarely do anything without them having some personal benefit or 'pay back' which means others can benefit from their personal greed and ambitions but sadly many more are trampled over, used and cast away with nothing. A look at Rodney's cv tells you much about where his ambitions lie and I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't looking to trade the Knighthood for a Peerage Lord Rodders of Wakefield, a personal view only

I have discussed this incident with the most impeccable of sources. From what I was told, he gave out the loan knowing full well it would be paid. It was underwritten by the RFL and monthly instalments were deducted from the subsequent SL payments in order to repay him. The figures I were told also suggest he also got substantial interest on the loan and came out financially on top.

I am only reiterating what I have been told by people in good faith. However it suggests that this gesture by Walker benefited him the most.

Didn't know about it being underwritten, that explains a lot.

This is what I can't understand, why would somebody with the public profile and standing in the wider community (up to and including the national stage) bother to get his hands dirty in something like this.

Surely the carrot of a few extra quid wouln't be worth the potential damage to his reputation, considering that he probably has . Why would somebody with such a glittering CV like his bother at his time of life (I am aware that in the earlier days he may well have played a bit fast and loose in his business dealings) and literally on his own doorstep, surely he can't be either that greedy or that narcicistic?

Not to mention he's (presumably) got a good few quid already trousered from decades of wheeling and dealing?
