Heard this news earlier I won't go into my reaction but it's odd that this of all seasons would be the end.

Not really happy with this , to me ALL clubs should have just retained existing rota's 

Maybe Salford have no choice.

Can't force a contract extension on a player who doesn't want it. Similarly, I imagine clubs wouldn't want to be forced to extend a player they wanted to release. Whether or not we play this year, 2021 is a new year for everyone.

Disappointed under current reality, very poor show from Cas as breaking ranks openly could open a can of worms

But when was the initial approach before or after playing was suspended? is Evalds out of contract at the end of the season and have Salford offered him a new contract or have Cas payed a transfer fee thus involving the Salford club in the transaction?

Evalds is out of contract at the end of the season whenever that may be. Salford offered him a deal but it seems he picked a 1 year deal at Cas.

Shame the tampering rules didn't move along with the season

I reckon Cas will have had him lined up before 2020 commenced, but didn't see the sence in paying a fee for a player who would become a free agent, of course it isn't supposed to happen but has been since the game began. As for the1 year contract who have Cas got coming off contract at the end of 2021 to free up some extra salary cap?

I'm confused, how is it tampering? He's not breaking his contract, if we get back on the field he'll be playing for Salford till it expires

By all accounts it was out of Evalds and Shaul, from what I hear from the majority of hull fc fans they wish it was shaul. All want Connor to fb with Wynne as the future

I thought there was a deadline that out of contract players couldn't be signed before.

1st of May, no approach can be made without going via the club he plays for before that date. Really poor show from Cas when all clubs should be pulling together

May 1st for this year. Salford say they made him an offer for 2021 but he rejected it

It’s like stealing a blokes trainers after he’s been run over - shocking morals and good to see nobody else making announcements

Clubs aren’t going to stop signing players for next year. What should Evalds do spend a year on the dole while he waits for this to settle down.

It's unfortunate for Salford who have enough problems as it is.

I presume Castleford won't be asking for a share of the £160m government assistance given that they are still doing well enough to make big signings.

I don't see what the fuss is about. Good signing for Cas.

If we were still playing this season the guy could still have signed for someone else for next year, so what's the big problem?
