    Super League is much faster than the NRL because they don't wrestle nearly as well. Better to watch.

    I think people need understand the difference between a direct swap and a upgrade, it is not a direct swap a $800k prop for a $150k one.

    Kind of depends on how much better the 800 k prop is though and where did we get 800k from

    He'll go for between $600-$800k if he comes here, and both money and addition to our roster he is an upgrade on all fronts.

    Just because your swapping one body for another doesn't mean your getting the same value.

    I read an article say he was asking for $600k and clubs were saying that was too much.
    So a team will most likely sign him for around $500k

    Don't know but suspect that our 3-4 current top props are not on $600,000 plus a year so is he as good as them or better, now or potentially, if not too dear. He looks a possibility of a signing but surely untested week in week out in NRL, he must improve our squad but only at the right price.

    That's the problem with guessing how much players are on a lot of the time were not even close 500k for the best English prop of the moment yeah ok but up to 800k no i don't think so ..I would rather upgrade Daniels contract and make sure we keep him for life ....

    Get the feeling he was always staying in UK, put his name out to get best offer. Good luck to him, probably best for him to stay in comfort zone.

    Whens the last time a ESL prop used the NRL to boost their price?
