The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

Say something negative about any other team than theirs - Its an opinion

What is the purpose of the salary cap? It is good to see talent being willing to stay put but then again there is little financial reward for moving. Clubs now know what they are likely to need to earn to survive but the whole game seems to be going backward. Our profile as a national sport has never been lower and for all our pie in the sky talk of expansion we are getting more insular. I cannot remember a time when our big names have been so few and far between. If the point of the cap is to create mediocrity then it has been successful but it has not really brought the kind of stability that I had hoped it would because gates are falling and clubs are worried about losing their Sky money.

The purpose of the cap is to spread the top talent among all of the clubs in the division rather than cash rich clubs like Warrington acquiring them all. You say there is little financial reward for moving but without a cap there certainly would be, to the detriment of the competition in the long run.

There's barely a cap in place anyway. There are so many loopholes and workarounds for clubs that it's pretty pointless having one

Anyway

Kyle Wood has extended his stay at Trinity for a few more years. A great contract extension from a very proficient player
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Not many as it happens but that’s due to salary cap and quota spots.

I do know that Saints offered a swap deal at the end of last year but don’t feel bad that neither the club or the big bopper were interested. He’d be great at Saints tbh, easily your best prop though I realise you have no intention to admit that.

There isn’t a club in SL who wouldn’t want Fifita.

Saints apparently, I mean he’s not in the same league as Amor is he :D

PS I actually like Amor but most sane Saints fans would take big Dave instead given the chance.

I think Kyle Wood is pants. Wakey should be looking for a better 9. A solid number 9 can make a huge difference. Roby, Clarke, McShane etc....
