H's Dad...
Dirty Linen is best kept out of sight...There but for the grace of circumstance...?
Sale and every other club takes advantage of signing and retaining (young) players for far less than they are really worth just as readily as any R.L. team.
I doubt we would have done much different from Castleford were financial clout and circumstances reversed.
Whilst Solomona is fantastic in attack, his defense needs considerable attention before he realizes his full potential. His value is contentious depending on priorities.

I think considerable attention is a bit harsh. He goes a bit higher into the tackle than he should (as RL players are taught) and he gets drawn to the centre too easily but in the 14 games he played for us last season he certainly wasn't a turnstile. Charnley has considerably more work to do on defence than Denny. Addison, earlier on his career, was equally guilty of jumping in too early/ making the wrong call. That has improved recently (albeit his 'king hits' now appear to affect his health).

In terms of the two tries in the argentina match anyone can slip (the first try). The second try wasn't great but, too be honest, that was a bit of rabbit in the headlights. I thought he looked to hyped up in the first test, understandable considering everything which has gone on.
