Hock is registered as a Wigan player and is on loan at Widnes during his deal with Wigan.If the player changes his mind about joining the Eels then Salford will have to negotiate with Wigan.I'd have thought Wigan would be looking for a loan deal on the same basis as Widnes. In that they pay a fee for his services whilst agreeing Hock doesn't play against Wigan.A loan deal would appear to be far better for Wigan than a sale.



To be fair, the dr has money and Ian would rightly receive a transfer for hock...... Do Salford really what him??

Doesnt mean a great deal though really.. Whether Ricky Stuart thinks he has it 'under control' or not.. in this case money clearly talks, and Hock must have been offered a shed load.

 

I hope Hock does still go to Parra, as i would love to see him playing in the NRL.. but at the same time i love the headlines Dr. Koukash is making..

 

I don't see how Salford could offer remotely close to what Parra could offer.

Be interesting if it happened.

 

Initially thought that he would be a cap buster but was kind of surprised to see his published contract with the Roosters is $700k so roughly £450k. A big chunk for one player but I suppose it could be done with a load of youngsters on pretty small contracts.

If the Dr is looking to spend £3m-£4m on players salaries (All legal and under the SC rules of course) then SBW will be very affordable.

forgive me if i;m wrong but haven't the eels agreed to pay a large transfer fee for hock?? i think they would be pretty peeved if our attention seeking friend tried to hijack the move...............more hot air from barton bridge methinks.

Hock isn't what Salford need. Load of money tied up in a player sat on the sidelines due to indiscipline. Be good to see him go to the NRL. I suspect they will not tolerate his nonsense.
