    I was going to start a rumour that Wigan were getting so desperate to replace Zak Hardaker that they offered us a fee which is delaying the announcement. But I realised it was too unrealistic.



    Wigan couldn’t pay a fee

    They could give us a nice bit of axminster and a trophy cabinet that hasn't been used recently.

    We wouldn't have to worry about Percival being poached, then

    I'm sure the selling club over the hill will be more than happy to oblige

    He’ll have to remember what they’re called first.

    Josh Eaves and Rizzelli leaving Saints.

    From love RL .com
    Konrad Hurrell’s move to St Helens has received a lukewarm reception, but the champions believe they’ve got a bargain in the Tonga international. A marquee man at Headingley, he has taken a huge pay cut in moving to the Totally Wicked Stadium on a two-year deal – maybe even on less than what the Rhinos offered him to stay.

    Does anyone know why Rizelli is retiring? He's only young, isn't he?

    From Rizzelli’s Twitter. Doesn’t say exactly what he’s doing but a career away from rugby.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    I met Nico once and he came across as a nice lad. Its a shame we didn’t get to see a bit more of him. He showed some nice touches in that game against Salford last year.

    I was told today that Wigan had made an offer to take Danny Richardson for next season (and potentially beyond) from Cas. Apparently Cas are prepared to let him go if the player accepts the contract offered by Wigan.

    Perhaps he's decided he's not going to make it at the top level so wants to forge a full time career outside of rugby

    Yeh quite possibly mate. It was Marshall who brought him to Saints. I half expected him to end up at Salford with Marshall but obviously that’s not gonna happen now.

    Nothing officially announced as yet, though it seems another open secret. It wouldn’t surprise me if it’s announced next week, all the media has been around the victory and three peat this week (rightfully so).

    Sky have put together a current in/out list (https://www.skysports.com/rugby-leag...he-2022-season) it’s non exhaustive (as Danny Hill isn’t in our Ins section for example) but a good starting point.

    I wonder how people compare our recruitment to others. It seems quite a strange year with lots of internal moves, but we seem to be the only ones recruiting heavily from the NRL. Hill have done their usual of a load of bluff and bluster and then not really done anything in the transfer market. Huddersfield have got some really good players but seem to be shrinking their squad, and both Warrington and Wigan seem to be blindly ignoring their main problems.

    Listening to the Full 80.
    Always need to take some of it with a pinch of salt but an interesting point on academy compensation.

    It was suggested that Ebon Scurr would command a compensation fee of £40K to the Bulls.

    He's 21. Compensation is due until the player becomes 22.
    It was implied that he will just stay at Bradford.
    "SL Clubs reluctant to pay compensation to Bradford".
    The same applies to Oliver Wilson who is at Huds but came from the Bulls academy.

    This may have been a factor in retaining the likes of LMS and Amor for 1 more year.

    I'd read a week or so ago that Huddersfield had signed Danny Levi whom isn't on the list either. I think he is another good signing for them/he's a good hooker. And announced today that Leeds are bringing in David Fusitu'a. A few years back, I thought he was one of the best wingers in the NRL.

    I think next year we may see more and more internal moves given the 17th team in the NRL as of 2023. And looking further ahead, I'm sure there'll be a plan for an 18th team too, to even up the numbers.

    Don't think so. Former Saints Academy.
