Can't see that either tbh.

IMO forget about money and deals. He's injured I know that as fact and he's unlikely to be match fit at a point where it will help us. I just don't see the point of even attempting to play him whether that be us or Catalan.

If I ran the club Catalan I wouldn't expect to take him now, poor business from them. What I would say is let's do a deal. You will keep your new player safe and we will cover some of the costs till the end of the season. A bit like Ellis, a sort of mini transfer fee by proxy. For Catalan this would mean he won't pick up further injuries whilst they can monitor the one he has now. I'd guess the new contract won't come in force until September and will require a medical before signing off. Should TJ fail Catalan can walk away having only wasted a relatively small amount of cash. Trinity can use that spare cash to pay a fit player.

Interestingly it's funny how all of a sudden Bill gets paid off? That money came from somewhere.

Of course I'm speculating wildly and just for fun, I've no idea if you can actually do that kind of stuff.



I assumed that it was a medical insurance pay-out, as he had been told to retire on medical advice. Maybe wrong, usually am :)

Didn’t Tupou medically retire on advice? I’m sure there is a difference and insurance would cover this cost. With only 2/3 months left salary anyway it’s not like a huge payoff. There’s nothing in that imo.

Think we are reading too much into it. I doubt Catalans are paying anything to us for any reason regards TJ between now and end of season. Why would they do that when they just don’t need to.


Could be right, just seemed nice timing. As I say I'm just having fun.

Paying up Bill's contract isn't new money. We always had that in budget.

If we are the same as football, then being "medically retired" would result in an insurance payout for the remaining contract plus any bonuses/loyalty payments.
We're all Trin aren't we?

Err, no we didn't, unless you mean that the pay out is equivalent to what he would have received until the end of his contract?

If it's a medical insurance pay out then who cares.

Not quite the ending we had hoped for

Tom Johnstone has undergone surgery this week which rules him out of action for the remainder of the 2022 season.

Sadly, that means Tom has played his final game in the Red, White & Blue.
