Anyone know any more about this clause? It's a great signing for us "in theory" but if there's any hint of it being a glorified loan or a "keep my options open" move from the kid then that taints it a fair bit for me. The RFL need to outlaw such clauses. Players are free to tout themselves around ahead of free agency and even when under contract in more extreme circumstances but these weasly "get-outs" just undermine fan confidence and reinforce a sort of begging culture among the less glamorous clubs.
I suppose Rovers may see it that by the end of that 2 year period they may be a more profitable and powerful SL proposition than Hudds and thus view it in more of a confident "Doesn't bother us" way. Still, I don't like it. If I'm forking out to watch games I want players committed to my club, at least in so much as that they're not viewing their next move before they've even pulled our shirt on.
I want to know more about this clause.
