Unfortunately that’s a completely different discussion because paying British players more money doesn’t mean you will get stellar performances. I know RD will disagree but if you pay Dec P £1,000,000 you would not get anything different from him. Austin clearly hasn’t been value for money overall but just about every signing carries a risk of not working out. Some start off like a house on fire others get called fit to burn and then improve massively like Matt King and M Monaghan, no real way of knowing in advance which you will get.



i look back at that season 2008, and think 2 things, 1, there was far too much expectation put on 3 of the 4 incoming players, we expected them to elevate us to a higher level, the australian international (who as quite rightly pointed out at the time, wasn't a gleeson style centre we were trying to use him as) so there was a lot of pressure on king and monas, slightly less on Landerson, and zero on spider who was an unknown to anyone that didn't play fantasy nrl at the time.

Point B, that whole season was loved . The weather was terrible that year, the pitch was awful from a combination of the weather and liverpool reserves cocking it up. And we had the terrible conditioner that year that resulted in a ridiculous amount of torn calf muscles, and 2 (i think) torn achilles very early on (Reardon and bridge)

It was just cursed from the off.

And that bloody shirt as well, with the neck hole that was too tight.

What I meant was that the board probably saw Powell as a guy who can get 3-4 young players on 75k each whose overall contribution to the team will have more of an effect than 300k on Austin. Not many UK players are worth the marquee money and even then they can fail despite prospering at a previous club. However, there are a few such as Clark.

Because he was vague about leaving? Didn't commit to staying at all.
