    The price tag isn't based on playing ability alone, nobody is worth that. Toronto will be using him as a publicity tool first and foremost.

    An injured SBW is still the best player in England.

    Also have salary cap rules around signing players from another code, hence they are trying to sign Tuilagi and Ben Teo from English union and reports today they are chasing Val Holmes because he qualifies as he is coming from NFL.

    I'm nervous every time I open this thread that I'm going to read the Cows have signed Latrell.

    The fear is real.

    Meanwhile, my Panthers are like "We're in a rebuild."

    Lol I've met Madge in person he's genuinely a good bloke. Has plenty of time with the fans, I think you mispelt Matterson

    The myth that he trains players too hard is just that, a myth. Nobody else complained. Me thinks Matterson just had a falling out with the players

    Griffin copped the same criticism. Everyone is after a payday. Few want to grind their way to success.

    Matterson had a cracker of a season aswell, was 18th man for the blues etc. As the saying goes "hard work pays off"

    Maybe he wouldn't have reached the heights that he did without Madges training regime?

    Understandable. If Val doesn't jet in soon ya sorta feel Green will have to do something. A poor start to 2020 and he's toast.

    A very good question.

    Who is in charge of recruitment and retention at Souths?,
