Not just the Rhinos who will be affected , my lad got the same problem at Giants . They've got 2 on first team contracts , the rest are being told they will be offered amateur terms so train and play for free , no expenses etc . He wants to stay in League but might not be able to afford to and is even having trials at football teams .

I've said before a generation is going to be lost here .

Exactly, its going to be every club in Super League virtually. Real shame.

It will impact the sport for a good few years. There is no guarantee players will return to amateur clubs when things get more normal, if they ever do, so a lot of players will be lost to the game at a lot of levels.

Reserve competion has gone, u16s are moving up and clubs cant afford to keep 35 kids to play in an u19s team. Its reality unfortunately. Hard decisions have to be made to keep the game going.

Are there limits on the size of the FT squad?
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

There used to be a rule where only 25 players could earn over £30k p.a. But not sure if still exists

I’m really struggling with losing some of the young talent and at the same time bringing in older players like Ferres and Thompson, when this season there is nothing to lose by playing the kids.
