Just a feeder club

Post by ddtftf » Sat Jun 27, 2020 11:29 am

I am looking forward to seeing Hastings / French and Gildart 3 players that would make me buy a season ticket, then I felt depressed knowing that once again these three players will soon be gone to Australia and we are back to square once again on the merry go round of keeping an exciting team to watch . The only decent players we keep are the ones not wanted by the NRL sadly.

How do we avoid it?

IFL and KR need to come up with the answer.

No they don't its a SL wide issue, the RFL cause this by a Cap, sadly the damage is irreversible and we have fallen that far behind there is very little we can do to catch up.

Which prospective new owners with those ever deeper pockets are you thinking of Meds?

It is of course up to IL and Rads to find a way to keep players rather than just let them go.I appreciate there will be one or two would go whatever the situation but compared to other clubs we let far too many go far too easily.

We need to make it a harder decision to go,wigan seem to take a " fill yer boots lads come back here if it doesn't work out" attitude makes it a win win situation for the players

I thought that originally, but how does that explain teams like Saints holding on to the likes of Lomax, Roby and Makinson, Leeds holding on to Maguire, Burrow and Hall (at least until he past it), Wire holding on to the likes of Ratchford and Clark. These teams seem to be able to instill a level of loyalty that we can't.
