All depends on whether we pay out the remainder of his contract in full or in part. Any payment will count towards the salary cap.

I suspect that there will be negotiations with his agent as we speak.

Why would we have to pay anything if he’s breached his contract? I can’t see any circumstances at all where we’d have to pay him if he’s walked out on the club as is reported.

He won’t get a penny surely if he’s just walked away?! It smacked all off season of a player who didn’t want to be here but also couldn’t afford to walk away from a good contract.

If a trip home has tempted him to do that then the benefits of this trip to the club just got even more substantial!

Oh I’ll bet somewhere in the small print there’s a clause for just this sort of thing,not saying I know but any agent worth their salt covers any eventuality surely?

Can’t see it being as easy as just ripping his contract up and paying him nowt,life isn’t like that,but of course Wigan should hold his registration which is a handy bargaining chip to have.

As said I’ll bet there’s talks happening and have been happening since last week.

Sorry hengirl, I can’t agree. There’s no way Ian Lenegan or Kris Rad would be taken for mugs. An agent will do their best for their player but a clause like you mention would never be agreed by any businessman.
‘If the player decides to walk away from this contract without permission, with 2 years remaining on said contract remaining, then the club must compensate the player financially.’

Sorry but I just can’t see it matey.

I highly doubt that. IL is a smart business man, I hardly believe he’d allow for a clause saying at any time should FPN decide to leave Wigan we will pay him.

If he’s just not returned home, that’s his prerogative. I for one am glad to see him go, not a terrible player but didn’t live up to the hype and understood he was taking quite a wedge.

Add him to the long list of NRL rejects. Glad he’s gone to be honest.

No great loss on the face of it, looking a little short on numbers should we get a couple of injuries.

If Navarette and/or Hamlin can step up, then hopefully a big chunk of the salary cap without losing anything on the pitch.

Confirmed by the club now. No great loss but so frustrating that he's done it now rather than months ago when we could more easily get a replacement. Not sure what the cap implications are given that he did play an SL game this season.
