If they wanted to, a club could make him a marquee player but maybe they don't see him worth that much.

This.

There are 24 marquee spots in the league I believe. He wasn't considered worth one.

That does assume that there are 12 clubs with the funds to each pay 2 marquee players.

He wouldn't be next in line at saints, possibly quite a few in front of him. But good luck if he gets a big payday most cross coders are not worth the expense these days and thats both ways.

Not marquee, but still entertaining. There’s not going to be much we can do to stop this sort of thing from happening. I think the fact he’s played Union at junior level has helped here. I doubt Racing 92 would pay top dollar to experiment with a pure-league player such as Makinson or Johnstone.

He'll be wasting his talent, but he'll be well paid for it.

I doubt any Superleague club could match a Racing 92 package. Union in France is big money.

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

There IS something we can do to stop this sort of thing happening.

French websites reporting he’s signed for Racing 92…

 

Probably double the money and he'll only have to touch the ball 3 times a game .... Can't blame him but Christ it would be boring being on the edge in union

Plenty more where he came from.

 

Let's move on.

Not for us there isn't, a great talent and a bad loss. Again, the weakness of the sports' leadership and financial clout of the game means it loses out.

That’s the thing I don’t get as he always said he hated never getting the ball.

Not sure why you bring the NRL into this.

Hes a good SL winger in a very very good SL team. He probably looks better than he us as he plays for saints. Hes not worth a marquee salary for any club. If he played for Wakefield or Salford no one would really mention him.

Shame hes going, but he will never be on big money in SL as he will never be a top top player, so he may as well earn what he can in Union. He will probably have a longer career in Union as well as his body won't get the same wear and tear. Saying that, see if hes back in RL in about 2 years like many others..
