In Topic: possible team

The two lads don't land at Manchester until 7.05am and then they have to collect their luggage and drive for almost 2 hours to Workington and speaking as someone who has done that trip 10 times I can't see them being in any condition to have a run out.
Maybe if Latu is fit enough he could have a run out against Wigan.  Kurt is banned for 3 games but I believe that one friendly match can count towards his suspension so if that is correct he would only miss 2 league matches and he should be available for Doncaster at home on 1st March.

It is one friendly or pre season match which counts towards a ban

H4E - as you know everything please can you describe exactly what type of contract this is
It seems to be a permanent signing (i.e nowt lke Swinton in case it case it needs explaining)- please provide evidence in your reply that it is otherwise

Swinton & Fev both sighed their players permanently albeit only for a season. My initial query was a genuine question rather than a dig.

If a Town or whoever are happy to sign players on these types of contact, notwithstanding that Town may not have, then I have no problem. Any gripe that I have is with the SL clubs involved who won't run a full Academy/ Reserve team system because it costs a few bob and then manipulate the existing systems for their own benefit but that is another discussion for another day

Is the Walker signing a genuine one or one of those where the SL club have him signed for next year like Warrington did a couple of years ago with Swinton and Leeds are doing with Fev this time?

but money you would think we have. 2 big sponsorships, speedway, wc money which looking at our squad last year we can't have spent. I would think the club is in a pretty good financial position. Plus overseas players won't cost an awful lot more than say a Yorkshire man or an ex super league player. I bet fifita isn't on much more than thacks was. Plus the club will find the players work before they come over to help them with the transition. Players come over to prove themselves and put themselves in the window for super league clubs.

It is highly unlikely that the club will sort out a job for an overseas player other than one of the development jobs as that would require a different type of visa etc
