"Global Warriors brand" - good grief, Jack Robinson was right all along in naming us Warriors back in 95!

Not so sure about this with the NRL cap going up.

I know we have a chance to take a closer look at their young players but they can do the same with us. What if Sam Tomkins had gone to NZ before 2009?


What if he'd have spent 2008 playing in the Toyota Cup and had come back to us even better than he is now? Not saying it would have happened, but there are going to be flipsides to every argument. We might be able to send some of our better 20s out there to play in their comp instead of being loaned to Championship clubs over here.

It may also be a case where we are able to take some of their players who are on the fringes of the 1st team. We know Wane and Lenegan seem to like "project" players and this is probably what we should be looking at more now as with the NRL SC increase it is going to be more difficult to attract established players, even if this means it is likely we will only get a couple of seasons out of them before they go back. I'm sure there would also be options for coaches to go over and learn some of their techniques. As long as we don't see a massive drain of our better players leaving for NZ then the positives outweigh the negatives IMO.

Johnson would be as good as Sam over here.

Mannering is past it.

At 25 Simon Mannering is "past it" don't talk rubbish he's a great world cup winning player and there was strong rumours The All Blacks wanted him to convert to Union in 2011.

Who knows how it will benefit us?

Tommy L was a NZ academy product who needed to come to the UK to improve his game.

I'd be happy if this deal allowed us to have that potential.

Realistically how many players could they pinch from us? They've got a good young team there already and they aren't gonna just sign our guys to rotate them week in week out.

not sure that 'we pay some of his wage they pay the rest' would pass salaray cap regulations?
I've seen them bomb a quarter final, bottle a semi final, finish as league leaders, but I've still, never, seen the Wire win the league
