I know it’s the rules but I hate that a player who has decided to leave… and has announced a new club for next year … still plays out their contract…

I like Tom and he’s been a great player for the club… but if he’s going he should just go! I can’t cheer him any more.. he’s made his decision and it’s to not play for my club.

It’s the flaw in the contact system … great for players… poop for fans

It is actually a result of the switch to summer rugby I believe and is in fact much worse in the NRL.
Wakefield at least wait until the season is over or part way through the off season when the bargain basement signings are available.

Totally let Tom down over the last few seasons,
The club should have been adding quality to the ranks and building a team.
Good luck Tom I wish you all the best.

As a Trinity fan, I'm absolutely gutted that Johnstone is leaving, although there is comfort in the fact that it's not to Leeds (or Cas).
However, for the player, I wish him well.
At this point, he owes Trinity nothing and it's been an absolute privilege to watch a promising youngster grow into a World Class player.
His debut at Leeds, was just remarkable and what followed has been as good as anything that I've seen in 50+ years.

For him, I hope that he gains some silverware and the move to Catalan probably ensures that he will get more chance on the International stage.

One of the best and certainly THE most entertaining players we've ever had, Some of those finishes just leave you gasping with admiration.

The real downer as a fan and for the club is that with so many rumours about our better players, we could be in an extremely perilous position and the mantra of not being a "selling club" could be in tatters.

Yeah I get that. That's how I feel - it's like you're cheering on some other clubs player, and that he doesn't want to be here. I'm sure though - when he plays - he'll give his best, but a clean break would have been better IMO.

Will be gut wrenching seeing Tom in another clubs colours.
But he goes with my full blessing, it's been an absolute pleasure.
