Another couple of years should see us able to be run at break even if we have to & also be competitive from what I heard. The only potential threat to this strategy would be excessive player wage inflation caused by abolition or neglect of the salary cap, and by stupid stunts like EQP incentives, which do nothing other than give the agents a lever to extract more money from the clubs.

If we want sustainable ruby at the top level, then the salary cap has to stop being a joke, and as the majority of clubs would be severely hit by player wage inflation, it is in their interests to start laying down the law to make it happen. After all, they are the ones who dictate the strategy & policing of PRL.
