Re people saying he left Salford for Wigan...he actually stayed an extra year, and the pommy comp is VERY different.

Salford's budget would be 1/4 of Wigan's, maybe less.

No one is staying at Salford if Wigan come knocking.

Much like no one staying at the Tigers if the Roosters come knocking....
A little different as there is at least some notion of a cap in the NRL.

In the UK SL, there is not. NRL clubs have to spend 95% of the cap, in the UK there is no min.

I.e. a club like Salford operate on about 1/3 of Wigan's cap.

I know how it works there....
I also well know how it works here.

I stand by what I said...

At the bones of it, It's a rich high end club raiding the best player from a low end less successful club.
The points you've noted, Whilst factual - Don't stop that happening in any comp, any sport - anywhere...

Fairly sure they saw Stefano as a JWH long term replacement.

And Stefano stayed.

I think Hastings will also if we sort out a long term extension as a priority.

Are you sure? - Last I checked Lindsay Collins is an Origin Winning Prop!! - On the up...

And Stefano hasn't even played Origin.

DT saying Hastings current deal is 2 years @ around $1m. Would now command $750k a season on the open market

You know that’s not bad for a starting half.
It’s terrible though if we signed Jacko as a utility to replace Billy Walters as first suggested.
I never thought he was coming here for less than that.
Thankfully the risk came off but bugger me $500k is a lot to gamble on potential.

As a halves combo it evens us up a bit cap wise as well...
One is overpaid - One is underpaid...
Brings them both back to even us up.

Hopefully we can extend them both a bit and re-align them closer to where they need to be.
