Who says this is to 'free up cash'? he has just left us judging by this account. It doesn't seem like we had much choice in the matter, so freeing up cash would just be a result of the deal. I would have liked him to stay with us for a year, in fairness to him in his few games for the club he hasn't had a chance to shine. Watson hasn't been at his best and didnt even play in the Warrington game, a key provider of our wingers tries last season. According to Steve Mac and people at the club we were already looking at 2/3 new players before this happened.
I was really looking forward to seeing him racing in for a load of tries this season but he has failed to shine so far. This deal mustve been done before yesterday. Shame. Forget it and move on.

Btw, if we knew about it before Hunslet, he shouldn't have played.

Ashall is brilliant cover at 9 or 7 as far as I'm concerned, and looks like he wants more game-time judging by his reaction after being subbed at weekend, after looking like the most creative player on the pitch for 10 mins or so! The quick play and kick over the defence was brilliant, yet so was his kick to the corner which put more pressure on Hunslet. If Watto and/or Smithy gets injured (touch wood that they don't!) Then we can always look for a loan signing. The likes of Morty, Doddy, Ainscough, Foxen, Joseph, Smithy etc, played in almost every game last season after all. If we can bring in anyone better, then fair enough I suppose.

I was in the club office less than an hour ago and Ryan told me it was the first he had heard of it and he had been with JK for most of the day.
This "story" does appear to be a little odd, after all, there's not the slightest thing on the club's website (or KP's "new club" Sale Sharks' website too).
Could it be a bit of "mischief making" by some silly so-and-so???

Taken from that link posted above. Something doesnt quite add up. Surely Penny would be under contract to play for us? In which case he couldnt leave, unless mutually agreed to do so, without a signing fee. Theres no way he could have been attending two lots of training sessions a week? Surely? And if he was missing our sessions, I strongly doubt steve mc would play him! Id say the only way this can could be happening is if the club knew and agreed to this move? But then if JK didnt mention it, it seems strange.
Im not sure what the rules and technicalities are but could he play for both teams? As in Alex Hurst last year? Are sale F.C amateur or semi-pro? Would that make a difference?
I think the best solution would be for the club to clear this up for us...
