Re: Is our Youth too good? & Why can we not keep our best?

So it was mentioned on this thread about why other clubs don’t loose their junior talent; basically because they say no. The NRL has looked at Makinson in recent months, but Saints instantly said he was under contract and that is that, where as we tend to be open to negotiation. The other difference...
