Rumour has it we are after his signature for 2020, potentially making him our highest ever paid player. What do people think about this? It's worked with guys like Brett Hodgson and Mick De Vere, but its back fired with others. Is it a case of putting all our eggs in one basket? He's currently a very good half back, but who knows what will happen in the next 12 months. People seem to be suggesting he will put bums on seats, but people outside of the sport will never have heard of him. He will only put bums on seats if he performs and gets us into the mix for trophies on a regular basis.

Very good player and as a marquee signing would not count on the cap but would be a massive outlay of money from the club. However i don't think he would be a risk player and it is not like an overseas player who may not settle to a new environment. However as both St Helens and Warrington are interested so it would be difficult to convince him to come to the Giants.

One advantage we have is he would be near his Halifax roots.

Afaik already signed for wire. Just because the article says highest ever. From the Giants it might still be 100k less than other teams might pay.

Sounds like a publicity stunt to me. Maybe trying to keep Woolford sweet

He would count on the cap, marquee players count but have a fixed amount, 75k for UK 150k for overseas players.

One rumour in one Twitter comment has apparently turned into fact somehow

Barba that won man of steel and took St Helens to the league leaders trophy. You do post some absolute uneducated negative rubbish. Maybe you need to find another club.

Whether this is true or not, the fact that the rumour is out there could be a canny move for the Giants. It shows intent and the fact that we are linked with one of the top players in the world can only be a positive.
Other players of this standard might just start to sit up and take notice

I’ve heard all signed for wire but personally don’t think it’s a good move for him
