Hope you right Kettykat but we do miss out a lot Sound a fair replacement for Dave


No they don’t.

You’re working on the totally wrong assumption that we were ever after these players in the first place. 99% of the time it’s total guesswork from bloggers desperate for click bait.

From what I gather not one of the NRL players mentioned so far were anything other than agents using our name. At the end of the day if we ask an agent who they have available doesn’t mean we are interested in any of them.

If we all worked on the basis that nothing gets put onto this forum until it’s 100% correct , what a boring site it would be . Nothing wrong with a few names being banded about ,even if they may be pie in the sky ,and one or two rumours to keep us interested in the club and game and while these long winter nights away ,after all that’s what forums are for isn’t it ?

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

Yeah, that's what Willie Poching said back in July.

Current rumours seem to be around this guy Mago , and ratchford - I realise that’s all they are but they all have the ring of wakey about them

If there is anything in Mago, Anthoni and Ratchford, and we were fortunate to land all 3, which I doubt we would, I think we will have a very competitive squad. Ratchford wouldn't be coming as cover in his eyes, and would add competition to the halves, full back and centre.

Also reading last night it looks like AJ Wallace's move has hit a snag

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.

Ratchford would have to be a short term deal but there may be other options.

AJ Wallace deal issue I believe is agreement on a deal between clubs. So likely a fee etc. personally I’d rather us invest in Windrow and we have plenty of second rowers.

Ok if we must.

One player we were linked with I already knew which SL club he’d signed for - have the odd connection in the game.

No prize for guessing who I mean.

Another player linked to us was never leaving the NRL let alone joining SL lowliest club.

However I mainly gathered it from the fans forum when MC dismissed Gale and Lawrence out of hand and then added that it’s best not to believe what you read or words to that effect.

So no great insight bar one player, just going on what was said by MC, possibly as reliable as it gets, though I’m not claiming he’s a saint in these matters. He actually says it every year but nobody seems to listen.
