Interesting one. Retired 12 months ago with injuries that although they weren't career ending were enough to mean that he 'could no longer play to the standards he set for himself'.

This is either one huge retirement party for Greg or he's doing a Jamie Lyon and has refound his lost love for the game. You'll either have a monumental scapegoat for next season or arguably the greatest signing Super League has ever seen.

Presumably he'll play centre for you?

We won't mention the salary cap. Whilst Leeds are canvassing other clubs to support reducing it to £1.8m, Warrington and Saints are handing out deals up to the current limit so they can pull a Wigan and go "Oh dear, we appear to have existing contracts way over the £1.8m, however did that happen Gary? We're sorry mate".

But has there ever been a more expensively assembled squad in Super League? Widdop, Austin AND Inglis on the same salary cap? Plus Ratchford, Clark, Hill etc... Madness, but great news for Super League in general. I suspect you might do okay next year if he's anyway near motivated and fit.

Jamie Lyon was a young man, not old (for a rugby league player) and retired. He knows what SBW is earning so I can’t imagine he’ll have come for less, but then Simon Moran can afford that sort of money - peanuts for him. Salary Cap though?

Well i'm not sure how i feel about this, he retired because his knee is goosed so unless it's magically healed aren't we just signing a retired Rugby league player with a bum knee?
Unless his body just needed a long rest which i doubt i can't see this being an amazing signing for us. I assume he'll be tempted as most Aussies think we're nowhere near the NRL level and will come over and boss everything. He'll take a quota spot and i assume a big chunk of salary cap, unless he can prove he is 100% fit and healthy this could be absolutely bizzarre or one of the best things we've ever done.

There's no chance we'll pay anything near SBW kind of money for him. But he win't be cheap.

Rule change to 3 marquee players surely?

Huge signing, be fascinating to see how it goes for him over here.
