Salary Cap in The General Rugby League Forum Posted September 27, 2010 · Report reply Parksider not enough time to reply in detail. I enjoy your considered thinking BTW even if we probably disagree. Just one quick note. Until the salary cap, We have always imported players from Union. We needed them. The 1920s, 30s ........ 50's, 60's, 70's etc The one point I do agree with you on is that unfortunately development areas will always have to have different player rules / quotas etc. However the caveat to that is if we had more players of a certain standard in the heartland then that would help expansion clubs and likewise without a cap they could sign better overseas players.
