Where have the likes of Le Cam gone released from Catalan?

I'm catching up with No1 son tomorrow evening so I will get a low down from him, see if he can tell me anything...or maybe he can tell me stuff but I can't pass it on just yet.

Absolutely nothing tbh. He clearly signed and played for us, but I don't recall seeing him myself, though I don't claim to watch every Academy game. Odd though, it's an unusual name, so I'm sure I'd remember him if he'd stood out in any way.

That's not to say he isn't a good player, just never noticed him.

Gibson signs for swinton from NWC, any of their fans about to give us an opinion on him and Rodden?

He doesn't doesn't seem to be on the TO radar. What is on the radar looks OK, but to be honest, getting anyone to come to France for championship money is difficult. They need new money to kick start a new campaign.

Eribe Doro announced at Fax. Happy with this signing and been impressed by him every time I have seen him play.

Typical Wire - They mass buy in props and release one of their youngsters with promise never having given him the chance to establish himself at the club.

Some rumours,rather than confirmed signings,would be nice.

 

Well a report rather than a rumour, but Matt Shaw suggests that Bradford have had to withdraw their offer to hooker Curtis Davies because they still haven't found a resolution to the issue of how to get Dec Patton off the payroll.

This does beg the question, if they can't afford Davies - whose last 3 gigs were with Villeneuve, Workington and Whitehaven - how on earth could they afford Jack Walker? Hard not to think it's cost Leeds a fair bit to get him off the books.

How much is Patton likely to be on? surely they could pay him off with Bradford paying some and his new club paying some.

Bulls linked with a current PNG player apparently with that news coming from down under. 🤔

 

Where have you seen that? They confirmed at their fans forum that there was 2 players coming from teams in the world cup QF, so would make sense that it's probably PNG and Fiji. Also stated 2 super league players were joining. Not sure who though.

I don't know, but you'd think he would have been just about Bradford's highest earner when he came - did he have a job outside RL? - and he then signed a contract extension after just one game, a win against subsequently-relegated Dewsbury - which obviously doesn't look such a good decision for the Bulls now.

His stock must have plummeted more than most Championship players this season, his form went down the pan, I don't think Kear (who was a big fan) leaving helped at all, and then he received the long ban for gouging (think he still has two matches left on that). Most Bradford fans on social media seem to want to get rid of him.

Other than Toulouse, who desperately need half backs but don't seem to have much cash to spend, it's hard to see who might want him at anything other than a basement price, especially as everyone knows Bradford want to lose him. In the current financial climate, he's not likely to accept a net cut in wages when he's under contract, you'd have thought, so it might cost Bradford a lot to move him on.
