He'll only count as £75k on the cap.

Maybe it’s just me, but I find it pretty distasteful that a club that was born three years ago can spend $3 million a year on a player when historic and proper clubs have gone to the wall (Widnes and Bradford for example).

Screw Toronto, and screw the expansionists.

That's the spirit!

Pretty much the biggest name signing I can ever remember comes to a brand new team getting our sport loads of column inches all round the world and 'fans' of the sport like you just want to moan. Sadly, we get the sport we deserve......

I for one hope Toronto make a success of it and I can't wait to see SBW play and hopefully I can find a way to get to Canada for our game there.

So I’m not a fan of the sport because I don’t have $$$ in my eyes...

How's that? because he's moved from RU - i wouldn't have thought it'd have mattered with him playing League a few years ago.

how they deal with the marquee issue is going to be interesting; they already have the most expensive Centre in Rugby and unless they can get Lussick to make a wage drop, they're gonna have to get rid of one , unless they're suddenly allowed 3/4/5.

No, not under the RU dispensation. There's also one for players returning to league after a gap of 5 years or more. 50% of their cap value (which for marquee players is £150k) is offset in year 1 of their contract. This drops to 25% in year 2.

Don't think they're allowed more than two so like you say they'll have to drop one of the others. I think we've done that with either Merrin or Hurrell so we could give one of the spots to Gale.

You come across to me as bitter, jealous and with a chip on your shoulder. Why else would any genuine rugby league fan want Toronto to fail? I have no idea if they will be a success but I really hope they will be cos one thing's for sure in my opinion, the game as it stands is dying a slow death.

The much vaunted 'grass roots' game in the heartlands is swamped with dinosaurs who refuse point blank to change and are more happy to cut off their nose to spite their face than accept there might be a better way of doing things for the greater good. There are lots of good people in the amateur and junior game but sadly in my experience they are outnumbered by those more interested in furthering their own agendas or more commonly massaging their own egos by forming all conquering junior super teams, turning blind eyes to violence, letting their touchlines resemble the wild west and doing little to stamp out referee and player abuse regardless of the ages of those involved.

Slightly off topic I appreciate......
