Reading online that there are strong rumours that Sam Burgess has been encouraged by "one of our own" supposedly Andy Farrell to switch to Union in time for the World Cup 


This would be a hammer blow to rugby league IMO 


As a sport we have to do something to protect our prized assets

The RFU have said they will buy his contract out for him, could his current employers refuse the buyout?

Nowt you can do about it,Rugby League can`t compete with the rich rah rah boys,but why bother? The last thing we want is to give these already highly paid players more money,it only leads to the ridiculous wages spiral they`re getting paid in football. Sam`s a good player,but he`s not irreplaceable,there`s plenty of good players just waiting to get a chance to wear the white shirt.

He can always do like SBW and change back straight after, makes a mockery of the game!!
