    Think they are still on SR contracts being paid by RA. Maybe they canít put that in jeopardy for a while?
    Yeah they do from what was written recently. Scoble asked for a release. The others likely expired, there was a thread on this site or G&G that had a list of when contracts were up.

    Surprised to not see Badge's name on the list.

    Ollie Hoskins should be another name on it. He is with London Irish who are likely to be heading back down to the Championship. He is a much better player than Championship level. Fine to play in that league when you have little opportunities available or heading towards retirement just not when you are in your prime and played in Super Rugby and the AP.

    This relates to a thought I had about Kankowski while driving to work this morning.

    What if there are a whole bunch of names signed, or waiting to sign, as international marquees in the other teams? Surely Kankowski hasn't been shown the door when there is need for his experience in other countries.

    Maybe Hodgo is holding off on some major announcements because he needs the comp to be ratified before he can announce them.

    While Honey Badger would be a marketing dream to play for the Force, I see his signature being very similar to Kankowski's both world class players who are playing in a position that has some very capable cover playing locally. to sign Kankowski instead of Ferris, or for that matter Honey Badger instead of Uyen would, in some measure, go against the very intent of the idea. Keeping places for young Australian (preferably West Australian) players should take precedence. It will also serve to lessen the complaints during NRC that Twiggy has shelled out for a World 15 to play in a tier 3 comp.

    Wouldn't it be great for the announcement to be the 5 other teams and then a steady stream of high quality international signings for each team over the next three or four weeks to completely overshadow the artificial success of the Aussie SR teams.

    Well Deegan had another season left on his deal at Connacht and Fourie had been playing in Japan. Kankowski was linked to Ulster a few years back but they signed Marcell Coetzee.

    There were a couple of Japanese teams that got relegated and let a lot of big names go.

    Regarding young players they will still get opportunities.

    Oh undoubtedly, but big picture thinking demands that you don't sign every big name you talk to for the Force, you need to spread the talent around or the Force will be playing in a boring competition that their rich sugardaddy bought for them.

    I don't want to win a trophy because everybody else was deliberately crap.

    Kane Koteka is only at the Rebels to hold tackle bags without a contract.

    Would prefer Kane over Sam, but that's mainly the WA thing..I think they are pretty much on par as players
