how many foreign players would that make then?Is there room for chase? (I still think he's off to NRL)


I think the biggest problem for Salford next year, will not be the salary cap, but the rules on club trained or federation trained players. Does Nobby knows the rules have changed since his days at the Bulls?

that's why i ask as I genuinely don't know
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

We'll have to wait until next Thursday to see who is actually going to sign & who is just a rumour, but there have been a lot of players mentioned and almost all of them have been foreign.

This year SL clubs had to have at least 8 club trained players & no more than 5 non federation trained players, in their 25 man squad. Maybe Nobby will get under the rules by some of the old hands he will sign being classed as federation trained as they have been here before the rules came in.

Care to back that up with some facts, or is it just ill thought out lazy male genitals?

just have to wait n see, but I've been told the deals that I've mentioned are done, are done, and the others are about to!

 

All the others , apart from Hansen , who was in the end promised a testimonial, and Dobson, who KR rejected deal, have come through.

At least one of the 'nailed on' signings being announced is a club trained player.

We may even end up going down, to come back stronger.

 

Sounds a good strategy, should all SL clubs aim for relegation then?

This makes the Chase signing even more unlikely in my opinion

Hope the RFL are going to be scrutinising Salfords books. No way can they keep all these signings under the cap.

 

Come off it, they haven't signed one single marquee player.

 

They are signing a lot of good cast-offs that have made their name for off-field antics.

It would seem like it. Maybe Salford got sick of Chase's agent playing off of one club against another.

I didn't say they should aim for relegation. However I would rather see Wakey invest the money they do have in making the club successful & sustainable for the long term, rather than chucking all the money they do have at the first team squad simply to avoid being relegated.

Bumbling along in the lower reaches of SL season after season isn't the be all and end all for me. There is a reason why after 15 seasons of SL, simply making the play-offs is seen as a major achievement for Wakey. Imagine if Wakey had had a sensible long-term plan when they first came into SL, rather than chucking everything at a succession of fairly average players year after year.
