Ryan McGoldrick auctions his playing services online – but fails

Former Super League star Ryan McGoldrick tried to auction his playing services on popular site eBay – but sadly failed after the website took down the listing.

McGoldrick had uploaded a listing online, from which the winning bid would have been be the price he plays for per game, with the former Castleford, Hull and Salford man hunting a new club to play for.

However, eBay have removed it after saying it “goes against their terms of selling body parts and remains”.

He was listed is a “1981 Antique Rugby League Player”, and described himself as a “used but well-maintained” player. The bidding peaked at £215 before it was removed on Wednesday afternoon.

The description McGoldrick posted for his services detailed: “You are bidding for the playing services of a used (234 games) but well maintained rugby league player. Played a variety of positions but now most probably suited to the halves.

“I have had 6 previous owners (Cronulla Sharks, New South Wales Waratahs, Castleford Tigers, Hull FC, Salford City Reds and DPC Roosters) and am now looking for a new owner.  I have been serviced regularly and come with a full service history (google).

“Am currently based in the Northern Rivers region of NSW but as postage and housing is at buyers expense relocation is possible.So the bad bits…. In the past I have been known to not see eye to eye with the odd referee and my judiciary history is quite extensive however as I have gotten older those problems are now behind me.”
