To be fair to Salford they need to bring in these sort of player to give balance to the squad, you fill it full of youngsters, they are only going to get hammered every week and not develop to their full potential.

They also need to sign players like this to make them more competitive in the short term or the young players will look to move to better clubs like Myler and Turner did for this season

Salford can say goodbye to any try's being scored by at least one of their wingers for the next three seasons!

Not sure about Chris Nero, but Vinnie Anderson will be a good buy for Salford. As for youth policies, well with all the overseas players knocking about, there's not that many clubs that can boast about their youth development. Salford aren't one of them, but neither are Warrington.

Indeed.


The same can be said with regards to 'tangiable success' and especially 'value for money'.



In Top Trumps, Warrington would be one of the cards you definitely wouldn't want to be stuck with.

I take it that sarcasm is lost on you?
What I'm looking for is someone who can contribute to what England has given to the world: culture, sophistication, genius. A little bit more than an 'ot dog, know what I mean?
