Other teams signing players!

Post by 6742hitch » Wed Apr 17, 2019 2:29 pm

Just seen Cas have signed a wing/centre...why aren’t we doing the same...and it surely can’t be the salary cap excuse?

Cas have dispensation for Luke Gale who was injured in pre-season and has not played in a salary capped match this season.

Cas have abused their dispensation for an injured halfback 🤣
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

That’s true! 😡
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

No dispensation for injuries to players sustained during the season. (Unless you are castleford, its luke gale, and you already have plenty of backup for the half back position in your squad).

I fully understand it is within the rules but to request dispensation to replace your injured half back and then to spend it elsewhere is poor.

They have played to the rules, what is the issue?

Would it be an issue if they moved a current Wing/Centre to Halfback and signed a Wing/Centre with the dispensation cap money to cover?

Yes agreed Fozzie, after all players are switched to and fro all the time, especially in these days of "utility" value.
