Mason not coming over then, not that i though he ever would. Japanese RU though?


What a criminal waste that would be.

Not trying to generate 'that old debate' again, but can't the world's RL authorities come to some kind of agreement about discounting the salary cap in the face of offers from Rugby Union?

We did very well out of Union players in the past, but there were many more of them than us, and very few of them had been trained or conditioned to the level that ours have now. It seems to me that League clubs are doing all the detailed and expensive preparation work so that a totally different sport can benefit.

Am I naive to think like this? I don't know. But I'm certain fed up.

I can just sense the predominantly Merseyside based "level playing field" merchants cracking their knuckles.....

We are going to miss out on Richie Myler. Wire have offered Salford 100K which they are on the verge of accepting as they can't afford the wages being offered to him and would rather cash in now than let him go for free next year.

100k? Now why does that sound familiar?

They're welcome to, but they'll get no response from me. I'm just sick to the back teeth of seeing guys that could be lighting up RL pitches all over the world taking their expensively developed talents into a completely different sport.

Mason leaving now is not such a big issue. He is a shadow of his former self.
