Do have sympathy for Konkrete's point about how this seems to have come about, but resolutely in the camp of those who say Carvell only has to worry about his own future and family. I also think that some of the received wisdom about his attitude etc is miles off based on how he 'treats' clubs; he's a genuinely decent bloke.

I also think Hull have got themselves a terrific signing and regret that Warrington let him leave.

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.

I have no sympathy at all, he could have done it very simply by stating he wanted to leave the Bulls, and Bradford have a proven record for letting disaffected players leave the club.

In the press release they seem annoyed that he was taking wages since last year, but what exactly is the issue with that? Doesn't the TUPE thing relate to the administration from a couple of weeks ago?

This:

 

"A letter was sent to Carvell last week from the clubs HR specialist, ‘Elcons’ explaining that they did not accept his refusal to transfer to Bradford Bulls 2014 Ltd, adding that his playing contract will only allow him to resign if the club is guilty of serious and persistent breach of the terms and conditions of this agreement."

"The spokes person added: "We are of the opinion that no such breach has taken place and therefore we assert that he was not entitled to resign from his position as the transfer of his employment in itself does not constitute a serious or persistent breach of the terms and conditions of his agreement.

"The letter went on to explain the Agreement which was entered into last year is with “the Club” being referred to as “Bradford Bulls”. The change in ownership does not affect this Agreement given that Bradford Bulls remains as the Club. The letter finished off by requesting that Carvell return to work/training immediately.

 

 

reads to me like Bradford are refusing to adhere to TUPE by using his playing contract against him.

Bradfords fault he wants to leave. If the club had not been so badly run and the club, messing people about, he would have stayed. But when you have people involved who are more interested in points scoring and finger pointing, instead of running the club properly, then its no surprise players decide they have had enough. The problem Bradford face also that any quality players will think twice before signing for them until the club is run properly for a bit. Bradford have little to offer as they currently are and players and their agents will be wary of signing.
