Kyle Flanaghan.

Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

We spoke to his reps to gauge his thoughts on a move to England and it was positive, I believe now the fact he is “being offered to SL clubs” is so that they have a few offers for Wigan to compete against, rather than being his only option. I will try to find out more over the weekend
You said it mate, I hope it now happens so that you can prove the doubters wrong 😀. We will have to let one of our overseas players go to accommodate him though.
I would imagine that player is Tommy L
With our new signings we need to ship out Hastings and one more player, if Flanagan was to arrive two would have to go.

Both Tommy and Mitch count.

I hope he doesn’t go round again wether we get Flanagan or not.
I hope we do get Flanagan, the lad has class, that’s permanent. He seems to be lacking confidence, possibly due to how he has been treated. A move over here might be the change he needs.

Yes you’re right he played a season for the NZ warriors forgot about that

Clark counts as an overseas player.

Clark was born in Pontefract & has never played for a senior RL for a NRL club he played in the Holden Cup which is akin to our academy. So how does he count as an overseas player?

its a garbage system, for example, Hastings can play for GB but is still classed as an overseas players, no wonder other sports laugh at us

Quota rulings are set to be changed at Monday’s RFL board meeting.

It will see clubs still allowed to sign a total of seven foreign players, but it will adapt the interpretation that allows them to currently sign only five players from Australia and New Zealand.

As it stands, clubs are allowed five ‘overseas’ players and seven ‘non-federation trained’ players. An overseas player is someone who does not hold a European passport or is not a national from a Kolpak Nation (Fiji, Tonga, Samoa & Papua New Guinea).

Meanwhile, a non-federation trained player is a player who was not trained by an RLEF (Rugby League European Federation) member club for three years before the age of 21.

The ruling effectively means every overseas player is also a non-federation trained player, as, other than in exceptional circumstances, an Australian or New Zealander will have spent their youth with a club in their homeland. As a result, it leaves clubs in a position to then sign two further players who have a European passport or a Kolpak national to fill their final two non-federation spots.

However, the new ruling will simplify matters so clubs can now sign seven non-federation trained players without having to worry about their backgrounds or passports.

The proposal has been approved through regulatory meetings and should be signed off at today’s board meeting.

The change in the rules won’t make a great deal of difference to the majority of clubs, but one club that will be affected is Leeds Rhinos.

The Rhinos have spent months trying to finalise a Papua New Guinea passport for Rhyse Martin, which would have taken him off their overseas players’ list and allowed them to sign another NRL player, with them having been strongly linked with Parramatta’s Jay Field.

However, they no longer need to pursue that as the new rulings would see him classed as one of their seven overseas stars under the new rules.

Long-term, the only difference it will make to clubs is that they can now sign seven Australia or New Zealand players without having to worry about passports.

Here’s an updated list of how every club is occupying their quota places so far.

Castleford Tigers (6): Peter Mata’utia, Sosaia Feki, Grant Millington, Jesse Sene-Lefao, Cheyse Blair, Suaia Matagi.

Catalans Dragons (5): Samisoni Langi, Israel Folau, James Maloney, Josh Drinkwater, Sam Kasiano.

Huddersfield Giants (7): Aidan Sezer, James Gavet, Kenny Edwards, Chris McQueen, Jack Cogger, Ricky Leutele, Luke Yates.

Hull FC (7): Bureta Faraimo, Carlos Tuimavave, Chris Satae, Manu Ma’u, Ligi Sao, Mahe Fonua, Josh Reynolds.

Hull Kingston Rovers (7): Adam Quinlan, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Kane Linnett, Matt Parcell, Albert Vete, Korbin Sims, Brad Takairangi.

Leeds Rhinos (6): Konrad Hurrell, Rob Lui, Matt Prior, Rhyse Martin, Bodene Thompson, Zane Tetevano.

Leigh Centurions (5): Junior Sa’u, Mark Ioane, Blake Wallace, James Bell, Nathaniel Peteru.

Salford Red Devils (7): Krisnan Inu, Tui Lolohea, Pauli Pauli, Sebastine Ikahihifo, Ken Sio, Elijah Taylor, Darcy Lussick.

St Helens (5): Lachlan Coote, Kevin Naiqama, Joel Thompson, Sione Mata’utia, Agnatius Paasi.

Wakefield Trinity (7): Bill Tupou, Jacob Miller, David Fifita, Tinirau Arona, Adam Tangata, Kelepi Tanginoa, Mason Lino.

Warrington Wolves (6): Blake Austin, Leilani Latu, Jake Mamo, Sitaleki Akauola, Jason Clark, Greg Inglis.

Wigan Warriors (6): Bevan French, Jai Field, Thomas Leuluai, Willie Isa, Mitch Clark, Jackson Hastings.

So next season we have Mago, Ellis, Miski, French and Field

With Hastings already announced as signing for Wests and Leuluai due to retire it leaves us with Clark and Isa filling the overseas spots.Is Clark going to stay on with two props arriving? Will Isa stay with so many back row option already?

Seeing as Canterbury are going to be paying a chunk of Flanagan's wages (which IL WILL like) all we need to do is make sure we are under the cap and have an overseas vacancy
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

Isa is staying according to Lam. They’re just putting the finishing touches to his deal he said.

Because he is non federation trained.
