It is interesting this 'he's earned the right to go early - be that now, the end of the year or end of his contract.
I don't disagree, but if you compare that to - say - football where very rarely do they go until a year before the contract ends so that the footy club can cash in.
Very rarely are they 'frozen out' because they are a disruptive influence or because they won't play and are just prepared to sit it out. (OK there are a few instances, but not many).

Who has it right?
In football I guess money talks very loudly given 2nd or 3rd rate players can go for millions and demand multi year million pound salaries.
Just think what the likes of Pele, George Best or Gordon Banks would be worth in their prime these days.....

Pele? Was he the bloke who played inside Green Vigo for Wigan a few years back?
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

In football there's a global market with a huge number of potential buyers so you can always sell a player if you want to. In RL there are a handful of clubs that have the finances to be able to make a deal and often they won't have that positional need, so players don't have the same asset value.

If this was football we'd resign Clark on a 4 year deal worth £300k a week and then after a year sell him to Real Madrid for £125m.

I still don’t think he’ll leave though. He extended his contract last time when all the speculation was he was leaving for Australia.

So you think he is going this season?

In my personal opinion I’d be pleasantly surprised if he was a Wire player next season but that’s just my opinion, not based on anything I’ve heard as I’ve literally heard nothing.

I’m just looking at it from his point of you. He’s literally only become a father and therefore the child won’t start school for 3/4 years, he’s 28 (will probably be his last opportunity) so therefore he could go over to the NRL for 2/3 years make a lot of cash, experience a different culture, test himself on the biggest stage and then return home.

It is probably fair to say the there is a lot of moving parts to the retention or recruitment in our main pivot positions for next year.
Lots of questions
Q. Is Austin going. And is Ratchfords move back into the halves a prelude to next year with the double edged sword being we have 2 decent young full backs.
Q. Is Widdop going to be offered an NRL contract
Q. Is Powell keeping an eye on Riley Dean at York and would he be ready for a starting spot next year.
A lot of the answers to those questions will dictate if we can compete with any NRL clubs who are interested in D Clark.

Reading between the lines the club has realised that they didn't want to extend Austin contract and have 2 decent young fullbacks at the club so want to try Ratch as a full time half back.
That in itself should release one marquee position.

Personally i would let Austin and Widdop both go. With the cash remaining, either sign Trueman or just play Stef and Dean in the Halves. Id like us to utilize the youth more and that would then free up Ashton as starting FB. Austin has done nothing for months and his sidestep as been so clearly foreseen by the rest of super league. Widdop has been playing well buts he's been open about homesick and seeing his family - just let the lad go.

Clark will probably leave and he deserves a crack at the NRL, hate losing him though.

Listening to Talksport2 earlier (who seem to have a renewed interest in RL) and they mentioned as part of a sports news bulletin that they expect an announcement soon that Daryl Clark has signed a two year contract with Gold Coast Titans. If that's right then at least it rules out him leaving this season.

Austin is a lovely fella to talk with and does a lot of things you don’t hear about in the community. He does it without wanting ‘look at me’ attention. However, has he returned a show for £1m of salary during his tenure. No I have to say.
Yep I know not Clark but all the threads are growing a root system at the mo.
Good that we’ve so much to talk about. Following on from Deus Dat Incr post.
