Can't believe I'm biting but are you ignoring the fact he ruptured his achilles

Even at his best he was a solid 7/8 out of 10

But never spectacular

You need more than solid for centre who's supposed to be the best :CRAZY:

Griffin and fonua at their best were better than Carlos definitely

Kelly 100% better



I loved Kelly at Hull but if we are talking about players been injured all the time, he's not the best example to be saying is '100% better' than Carlos.

I see Brown keen to extend his stay at Hull, hope the club don't mess about and get him stayed up on a longish contract.

Not good for SL.


Pressure on IMG to deliver on some sort of package with broadcasters in allowing SL to increase our own Salary cap .

R/L will go nowhere until they get rid of the salary cap.
I understand it would initially benefit teams with wealthy owners or directors of some clubs but then it would be up to other teams owners to look for investment if they feel the need to catch up.
The game needs to have a lot more superstars which in time will attract more terrestrial tv coverage.
As better players come into S/L a lot more average players will then make their way into Championship teams making that league a lot more competitive
More money in the game given time would also attract a lot more young players into the game from outside the traditional R/L areas
Its not an overnight fix but whilst we are fixed in a capped sport there is no real growth potential

Think it'd be a bit extreme to go from a small cap to no cap at all.

We probably need to increase it gradually over the next 5/10 years.

A concern would be top clubs just collecting talent and having bloated squads if we had no cap.

You’re a lunatic. Just exactly where is this investment coming from?? Rugby League is an M62 corridor sport. It’s proven that any investment outside of that doesn’t work. IMG can do whatever they want, where’s this new money coming from. You’ve got to wake up and smell the coffee, as much as you hate him, if it wasn’t for Adam Pearson, we wouldn’t have a club.

Lunatic ? Wow !
Don’t we just love an educated debate.
Flip your view ?
What about attracting more sponsorship
By attracting better quality players and better deal
What if sky hadn’t boosted football income and attracted more rich overseas owners ?
M62 rugby corridor has not exactly flourished with a salary cap in place
In fact I’d argue that we’ve gone backwards as a sport.
If you reply then please use a reasoned argument rather petulant insults.
