You're correct, however the fact that Trinity have contributed to the redevelopment costs suggests that money was saved to cover the new pitch, new flood lights and new roof on the Coach House house/Rollen Shack etc.

I have read Salford haven't paid the rent in the past and have received some decent handouts from the local council over the past few years. I don't know if they still are in a similar situation but it does show if you try and do things right and bumble along towards the bottom your seen as a falling club yet if you focus entirely on the first team but have a decent season then you'll seen as a valued club. Perception is everything in the modern world it seems.

For balance, they have had a great end to the season and I was wanting to see them in the final. I have enjoyed watching them and felt they were done over in the semi-final.


Their CEO revealed (fan's forum event), that the club have NEVER paid their full monthly rent. The shortfall of over £300k per annum is paid by the tax payers of Salford.

Imagine if we had an extra £300k to spend on our squad!

(But that we didn't do it by not paying our mortgage).

The tax payers of Wakefield gave us £2 million pounds towards our new ground and I believe but on this I am not sure provided the money via a delayed loan to secure the ground.

No, WMDC gave all the pro clubs in the district £2m to put towards sustainable legacy ventures and activities.

That's entirely different the SRD, defaulting on their rent and the council having to pay the shortfall, as a result of the finance package.

Salford council are liable for all SRD stadium commitments - if SRD don't pay, the council have to.

SRD COULD pay their full rent if they wanted. They choose to default on it and spend money on players instead.

So somthing tangible rather than into the pockets of players.

Oliver Holmes leaving Warrington. If he wants a club 'nearer home' Wakefield would seem an ideal move to pursue his career.

I think Asiata will be at Leigh next season.
I really hope we keep O'Donnell.
Stone is going to Melbourne Storm
Not sure what's happening with Ben Nakubuwai. :thumb:

Certainly built a strong squad this season. Can’t see Batley coming close tbh whereas I would have given fev a small chance. Strange how things turn out.

Thanks for clarifying some of those.

If we are looking for new young star we might as well look at the championship award winners. Maybe young player of the year. Eseh I think his name is.
....oh wait......never mind.
