BANG ON. When he first appeared for bradford, looked a world beater, strong, fast and big. eent to Rugby Union, failed at that, came back lazy and gutless. Did it when he wanted to, rest of the time didnt bother. Can only see him being even worse now he has dropped a level as he wont feel the need to perform.

I suppose it depends if he realises he is in last chance saloon and needs to perform to get another shot at SL, but I agree with the comments above.

Maybe Lugsy will be able to give us the crack with him being a big Dewsbury fan!!

Funny how only five people can be bothered slagging this weird signing of a mercenary yet 100+ comments about swinton having half a dozen teensgers in their team brings widespread condemnation.

I know you think DR is some crime against rugby league morality. This is surely just as bad.

Yes, you keep thinking that Mark. Fact is one player doesn't make a team, 9 players on the other hand.......

Sorry Mark but I'm not with you. Dual reg as it was last year worked fine, a team can add a couple of young lads to their squad who can add value and need the experience. That changed when Swinton sold themselves down the river and became essentially Warrington A team.

How does this compare with Dewsbury signing a player that can't get a contract in SL because none of the SL clubs think he is good enough anymore?

I thought the problem was gaining an unfair advantage by somehow fielding players that are signed beyond the realms of fair play

I guess its some moral dilemma then.

Or don't Dewsbury have a tie in with Bradford?

Must be all above board.

Sorry you have lost me as Bradford released Pryce and a few others when they had their money problems at the end of last season and he had been a free agent for the close season hoping a SL would pick him up. None have so he has signed for Dewsbury, where is the moral dilemma?

Quote from the Daily Mail website "Former Wigan and Bradford threequarter Karl Pryce, 26, has joined Championship club Dewsbury.

The 6ft 7in threequarter, younger brother of the former Bradford and St Helens stand-off Leon Pryce, was a free agent after being released by the Bulls at the end of last season."

Difference is Mark, Pryce hasn't just signed a 3 year deal with wire for it to be cancelled to allow him to sign for swinton, like 5 from wire to get around the limit on numbers.Also as voodoo says, Dr worked fine last season you could only register 4 players under the age of 22.It was never meant to be a way of giving established super league players game which is what has happened in some case and i can only see that side of it getting worse as the season goes on.

agree wheeler no problem young player still developing in SL, but clough and gardner while top quality players you have to question the new DR system when these kind of players are being sent out on DR. No doubt 2 games in 5 days will have some influence on who plays but i would like to see our own players given a shot in the cougars game and only use DR if needed against leigh

Wheeler will be 24 this year, H4e, so he would be ruled out by last years system of Under 23's

So what youre saying is if the rules fit your interpretation of them its ok

Its not ok to have a player for a match here or there. Its not ok to sign very young lads to enable them to develop for a sesson

It is however ok to sign direct from super league sessoned pros for a full season? And Dewsbury having a link with Bradford on this occasion is irrelevant

There are some strange morals in this debate

I struggle to see why you all give a ###### so much..

What on earth are you wittering on about. Its 2 completely different scenario`s for gods sake. One is a player who has no contract going to a team. The there is 2 clubs bending the rules to within an inch of its life to sign over half a dozen players who were on contracts then suddenly arent.

you my friend have lost it. how on earth you can compare the 2 is beyond me. karl price does not have the drive and desire that super league clubs look for. he appears to be dissinterested most of the time, dewsbury have taken a risk on him where other clubs wouldnt. swinton and warrington technically havent broken the rules, theyve just used them to there advantage. and theres nothing wrong with that, but will that be to swintons long term gain? nope. if these players are being used to attract fans then its failing as your attendance was pathetic on sunday, the main talking point was paul wood but on sunday he was out performed by every single town forward.

You my friend have lost it...thats not very nice is it?

Ha ha

Im struggling to get my head round it

I suppose the screaming in my face on Sunday by a fan of yours saying " are you effing Warrington or what" should have cleared it up

You dont like it

That's fine

Ill leave you to it lads

All the best for the coming season. You were awesome on Sunday and the best team definitely won

Stack as always was immense

Cheers

if Karl Pryce was still under contract at Bradford then suddenly goes to Dewsbury then its similar to the Swinton/Warrington rule-bending and would be said as such by me. The fact that Pryce has no contract is a huge difference. Its makes no odds whether he signs for Bradford again, Dewsbury or Siddal.

Regardless of any perceived benefit from having 9 Warrinton players in a side in the Championship you will find all of my posts against it, even if Town had Hock, Brown and John Clarke in their team.

I dread to think how that benefit to Swinton is going to pan out to the next game if there was only 601 at the game, with 150 from Town. Wood is having problems of his own and is (allegedly) talking to Wigan (I can't think why), so that benefit may quickly disappear.

I suggest you read my post again,introduce the age limit on DR players again,limit the amount you can register rather than the amount you can play and you fix a lot of what is wrong with the current system
