In any case we need half back cover ..... have you heard anything about Delaney?

Heard a whisper he’s gone,tbh I hope it’s true get the head out the club.

I now understand that GM won't be playing for us next season - whilst we will be without a recognised scrum half we will also lose the distraction of "will he, won't he?".

Brad was offered a contract by the club but is looking elsewhere for a better deal, I believe. It's a shame for us as I believe that he has a lot of promise, but can't blame him for seeking an improvement elsewhere.

On another note it is reported in LE that Leigh have now started to recruit again, now that Duffy has almost completed his flit from Fev. Names in the frame included the Adamson brothers and Dom Speakman. I can't see them troubling the top teams next season.

A great shame.  Agree that he has tremendous potential and without GM and Dom we are nearly as light at 7 as we are at Prop..

You're like a dripping tap PM, although less entertaining.

Its OK if he is not playing ... it is not OK if he is not playing and still picking up his contractual wages!!  If he has gone I hope his contract has been terminated ... if it hasn't it needs to be!!!!  .....

if he is going to honour his contract then I am sure we will support him .... if he isn't then he must do the right thing and ask for his contract to be terminated!!   ... no more taking the P ... like he did last year!! ... or we sack him for failing to meet the terms of his contract .. no pay offs please!!

You clearly understand contracts better than I do then O9O.

"Do the right thing" is quite witty though, I must admit. ?

Oddly enough, I don't have a copy nor have I ever seen a RL player's contract.

In a former life I was very familiar with contracts of employment but I suspect that these will differ in a number of subtle ways. I am just guessing, of course. I think that the fact remains that when a player of any sport wants to leave then forcing them to remain is futile. Whether you can effect the separation easily without it costing anything is more open to conjecture. There are all sorts of ways that a player could string things out whilst still receiving a monthly cheque, sad to say.

I thought that he improved noticeably as the season progressed this year. He does a lot of graft but some folk only like flashy players, I suppose.

I'm sure they do, but as a Rams fan it's not something I'm personally likely to get used to.
