Keith Mason has taken action against Huddersfield Giants for wrongful dismissal, according to the Hudds Examiner. The report below reads that he is suing Hudds Giants, although that doesn't seem to be the right term for a wrongful dismissal case. This could be one that a tabloid newspaper picks up, owing to some seemingly lurid content and  Mason's links to famous people.

It won't help the club's finances if he is successful in obtaining £300k.

Frightening that an extremely ordinary player like him could be claiming £300k for loss of earnings. How long was his contract 100 years?

Seems to me they wanted shut of him and found the reason.

I'm disappointed that this isn't about the on field scrap that this Welshman had with English half back and Cas team mate Rangi Chase.

It works out at about £90k per year, £75 to £100k should be minimum wage for an RL player IMHO!

Terrible player, can't believe he's still going.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

It'll have salary cap implications for Huddersfield if his claim is successful.

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

Good point, a good D&O polocy would have this covered.

I don't know how this would apply to the salary cap, even with insurance in place...

 

I'd have thought that Ken Davy would have ensured that the club has the right insurance in place given his background.

It's off-topic for this thread but I completely agree with you.  The salary cap gives a lot of professional players a very low wage for such a short career of under a decade for most at maximum earnings, in return they get physically pummeled in a game and most likely retire with permanent physical health issues.  The only reason I've not brought this up elsewhere is that there's simply no money to pay for a consistent higher salary cap without bankrupting half the sport.  As it stands, if everyone in a SL 25 man squad got the same salary then they'd get £66k each, that doesn't happen though and even one or two players on over £100k each means that much less for everyone else.


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway
