I think we could sign an RU player even if they were originally Non-Fed RL?

According to BBC he is out injured for the season https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/61167195

I quite like the thought of looking for talent like Hull have done from the British Military teams and their Fijian players. They’ve signed a couple of really talented players these past couple of years. They seem potentially a bit short term as Union teams seem to have eyes on them but it’s worth a look.

Be good to find a line breaking centre with pace and good hands.

I. can remember the days when a triallist was put into the first team under A N OTHER. I am sure that sometime in the late 60s Wigan played an army triallist.

All union trialists were named as AN Other in the 'shamateur ru' days as if they were named as playing for a RL team they would be banned from Union clubs for life.

Strange how some memories stick. This player was a winger, played in an all white strip that Wigan used for a while (at home ) and had ginger hair
