There is a great episode of the James Graham podcast with NRL “Super Agent” David Riolo in which he explains how the system works.

Agents do not wait to be contacted by clubs. Initial conversations happen with current clubs and then availability is issued and sent to clubs should their current club not be looking to offer them a new deal or if they are under contract but they are wanting to move them on due to salary cap issues.

Playing second grade in Australia for a season also has a very damaging effect on a players value which in the NRL which is why they target SL clubs if that has happened which is probably why Atoni is being shopped to us.


True but this season the NRL/reserve grade seems especially player hungry, particularly where under thirties are concerned. Really not much out there with plenty of players getting second chances.

Even PNG who really disappointed have seen a few players get an NRL deal, players we’d normally have a shout with. Hard times.

Did we not say that we had no interest in signing Proctor unless of course it was a different one.


You do realise the art of point scoring involves you winning them rather than giving them away?

I don’t recall anyone saying that but if they did, then it was Poching. We have a different coach now, he’s called Applegarth.

It was MC actually, at the previous fans forum.

That was back in July though not long after Proctor had been sacked. He was instantly linked with a move to Super League and Salford were mentioned in the press. The top table were asked if Wakefield were interested and the response from all three up there was a general head shake and a no.

So you think you win a point, in a game no one is playing, by saying you don't recall something and then guessing someone else did.....incorrectly?
Score.

I suspect Atoni has agreed terms but it will be all the crossing of t's and dotting the i's. This based on the comments by Mash in latest media reports.

Him and Proctor will be here before Christmas
