You mean no money was paid by a Super League club with all their wealth for a player who was under contract? Lovely stuff....


If we didn't get owt for Tom Lineham, I doubt we'll get owt for anyone.

You mean we didn't get anything for Tom Lineham, a player the Knights spotted and developed? The games gone crazy

Really p****d off about this to be honest, it was only two minutes ago we were saying what a great half back pairing we had for the rest of the season, and now off he goes without a backward glace. Though I am sure that as per previous seasons there will have been a clause in his contract to say he could leave if a SL club came for him, it just causes even more instability when we need all the fit players we can get.

Seems he wasn't actually signed.

Gary Thornton gives his view...

If it was up to me (sadly it isn't), I'd be taking a contract over to France for Eloni Vunakece to get him over here. A go forward prop like him would make a world of difference to the halfbacks we've already got.

Simon,

Very good call on this player, bet there's a few English clubs who are aware of his talents, wonder what he does for a profession though as no doubt his rugby earnings are only a secondary income so would need a job as well as a contract, maybe he's a printer !

Peter,
What can we really add ?
Been here so many times with this club ! A mercenary player getting best deal he can, perhaps using us to keep fit, his agent just after the cash, a SL club pillaging young talent, our club never had a signature on paper even though they announced the signing, so we have no commercial recourse on anyone, only losers ? Us paying fans again, promises, promises, actually our club is a shambles at times. At least we now know why Nicklas didn't have the impact he should have....head and heart not in it, I really hope after a couple of 'off games' that his No.6 partner hasn't already got his eye on next season and knows where he's playing......I fear that he does.

Hows he gonna get a game in front of Dobson and Burns ?? He was nowt special against us like i said after the game. I feel for you lads, the game is slowly dying due to the have,s and the have nots, it happened to us with Kyle Briggs a few years ago.

One man to blame for this mess in nearly all pro sport, a little known french,belgium footballer called Jean Marc Bosman, hes ruined it for the smaller clubs.

Aren't Toulouse a full time team now?

Also, the game isn't dying, it's stagnated because of SL licencing. Come 2015, every thing will change and all clubs will have more money.

Sandercock: "I'll wait and see how Danny Nicklas does in training before considering signing him"

 

There's a moral to this story somewhere...
