The Press have got their story wrong. It wasn't William Barthau. The player concerned would have been a direct replacement for Griffin.

The story was correct.

Am not being pedantic here but i have looked on the official club website and there is no confirmation that Josh has indeed gone to "Cash City" ooops meant Salford. At least its not Featherstone again if indeed he has gone. Can we please have official confermation ? Wonder who we will lose this week if we win again on Sunday. :unsure:

I know it's not ideal for everyone but I did post on the Clubs official twitter account that he had gone.

The guy's signature is barely dry on his contract with us, how can he just shoot off somewhere else? Contracts obviously aren't worth the fresh air they're printed on then!! And therefore if he's under contract to us then we get a fee, or am I just being naive?

Sometimes to get a decent player they want clauses in their contract ie super league or anywhere else if an offer comes. Just as the case with Ben Fisher wen he shot off to Catalans.

In signing overseas players not only do you have to be able to afford what probably is a substantial contract but also most of the time you also have to put them up with somewhere to stay. If you think about it it all begins to add up. But some clubs are obviously willing to take the risk.

He was very good, indicating a shoulder charge on O'Brien yet not issuing a red card or at the very least a sin bin for the lateness of the challenge.

I think everyone believes that a shoulder charge is a straight red after the rule that you can't do it was brought in. I don't believe this is the case? Every incident is different.
