You missed off Paul James BL, who also cannot have been cheap. (Carl Fearns? Burgess)

Absolutely however that was the year prior (2015-16)

Having looked at it though the trend actually really started here. We signed Matawalu, Rhys, Denton, Jeff, Jonathan Evans but lost all those previously stated as well as Strings and Henson.

Which is about is about the time of the salary cap investigation (Nov 2015 ish), hence my conspiracy theory. While I think this is the least likely reason for our relative lack of big name signings, it is easy to point to a rough correlation.
