Solomona case settled out of court

 Over £200k plus recovered costs of over £100k. To be honest I think we've sold ourselves short. But at least it's at an end and the snake can enjoy his money.

Probably about £200,000 short of what i hoped for considering his success in union, but time to move on.

Still not bad for a retired player.

And when they found our shadows

Grouped around the TV sets

They ran down every lead

They repeated every test

They checked out all the data on their lists

And then the alien anthropologists

Admitted they were still perplexed

But on eliminating every other reason

For our sad demise

They logged the only explanation left

This species has amused itself to death

No tears to cry no feelings left

This species has amused itself to death

I think it is better than giving more money to m'learned friends. If it went to a full trial I don t think Cas could have hoped for more.

The next step should be for The RFL to discipline Andy Clarke, hopefully leading to him being struck off, or whatever the equivalent is

The RFL should just ban him as a Rugby League agent

Now that the court case has been finalised the RFL will be able to conclude their investigation into the agent

Probably £200k plus is halfway/compromise between Cas wanted (up to £500k) and what the arrogant ones wanted to pay (zero)

As it's an out of court settlement I assume it can't be used as a legal precedent but it may at least have established some kind of principle that will help in future.


"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

Andy Clarke needs striking off from the RL register - full stop! Phil Clarke also has some questions to answer as he is also a director of the sports agency which represents players.

What would Sale do if he retired from Rugby Union and went to the NRL in a couple of years?

In that case I would make an exception and welcome him back. Just to see Sale get a taste of their own medicine

I wouldn't, I want Sale relegated and unable to pay his wages, though I dare say some other union club would pick him up

Although Cas have only got £200k ish it will have cost Sale close to the £500 grand with the tigers and their own legal costs ☺

The only thing with this kind of settlement is that it will be kept quiet. 

Hope someone leaks full details to the press.

Even if the amount isn't leaked, the thing they can't cover up is that they paid money to Castleford, instead of paying nothing (which is what they claimed they owed). It cannot, therefore, be claimed by anyone honest that Sale/Solomona were in the right.

As this is basically an admission f guilt it will be interesting to see how that moronic owner of there's explains it

Actually, reading the Cas statement is pretty revealing. 

Some strong comments from the club.

Assume Sale won't be saying much.

Agree, the details Cas have given seems to suggest no confidentiality clause and Cas seem happy to put it all in the public domain
