I imagine Purdham was on a much better contract than anything we've offered in recent years.


No doubt you are right Buzz & while that no doubt plays a large part, players still have to have the strength of character to step out of their comfort zone. That's where they seem to be lacking, unlike Aussies & Kiwis that travelling & working is almost a Rite of Passage.

How many players have we signed that didn't fulfill their contracts for all sorts of reasons over the last 10 years or infact signed & left before wearing the shirt in battle?

As someone who came down to London in my teens and have stayed since I don't really see what these players problem is. However, it's happened enough times that you could wonder whether the club doesn't always deliver on their side of the bargain.

I grew up in Dublin in the late 70's with an English accent........some of these so called "hard" Rugby League players are nowt more than entitled wimps!
