If we intended to use the quota place for a centre would it not be correct to assume that will still be the position they are looking to fill first be it from the U.K. or the NRL.

Not really. That's just the position they actually filled first (and then didn't)
It doesn't mean that was the biggest priority, its just the deal that was done.
There will be multiple conversations going on at the same time even for the same position.
If you waited and did them one at a time you'll have a squad of 5 players by the time the season starts.

Yeah his dad scouted at Wigan, but I thought I’d read something about but couldn’t find anything when I searched for it.

He was on a 12 month scholarship at Wakefield, then FC took him on a 2 year scholarship and at the end of that Wigan approached Normanton Knights who held his registration and signed him from them, the why's and wherefores don't really matter.

The rfl working with the home office issued some very clear guidelines and here's the web address :

https://secure.rugby-league.com/ign_doc ... ements.pdf

If you can explain it to me afterwards I d be really grateful - but basically it seems that if you want a work permit, you have had to play a lot of NRL games (20%), or a recognised international, and be one of the top 20 in terms of salary at the club or you ain't getting a visa.

There are exceptions and an interesting one on the percentage calculation if you ve been injured in the period they are considering as injured games are educated from available games.

Anyway I may have totally got hold of the wrong end of the stick

I can’t remember where I read it, but I’d heard it from 2 different people before seeing it online. I can’t say I remember seeing much of him at Wigan to form an opinion.
