Re: Player rumours

While these deals may be unusual, theyíre hardly precedent setting. Most permanent transfers are on 2 year contracts, so signing a player for half that isnít exactly shortly termism, these are also young, hungry players who have moved to further their international ambitions so will likely give 100%. Also consider that some DoRs may only be looking one year out, if they donít succeed next year they could be out of a job, so why would they not maximise their chances. Next season, like this one is a prime opportunity for clubs to get into the playoffs or the ERCC.

Itís a win, win, win for the player and both clubs.

In terms of salary, Iím led to believe that Saracens are paying more than half the salaries, but as itís a loan I think the full amount sits on the new clubs salary cap.
