so are we saying outcome of games only matter if your UN a certain part of the world.....silly me

No, I'm saying that decisions made in New Zealand are absolutely irrelevant to ones made in the British game.
And yes, you are indeed an extremely silly individual. I'm delighted that you're able to recognise that.

Saints were apparently very close to exchanging him for Hunslet's Richard Pachniuk in 1996.

There actually is a serious point to this; regardless of our affinity to the club it can't be argued that, knowingly or not, we broke the rules, as did Whitehaven the season before. That Whitehaven's case wasn't picked up is to their advantage. Ours unfortunately was and along with Doncaster we were punished. The fact that the RFL reversed that decision (still no word from them on the reasons why 20 days after it was promised) was a stroke of luck, but that doesn't make it right. Ignorance of any rule etc is no defence, and the RFL have now created a precedent which allows any club to knowingly or not break rules in the future knowing that they can appeal on the understanding that Batley and Doncaster got away with it, and they will expect the same result. I think that we can count ourselves very lucky and should keep our heads below the parapet if fans of another club choose to question our good fortune. We would have been employing the same effort if a team had received that same luck and relegated us.

Congratulations on making your 'serious' point.
