Why don't we attempt to recruit from union anymore some of the best talents over the years have been discovered by people like the mighty Doug Laughton on our back doors surely it still can be done guys who are more suited to league playing style than union this is the only way to compete with the aussies again plus a larger pool to fish.

Get the undiscovered ones each team can only play one first class stand off for example this might be a player with a better kicking game opposed to the running type player Laughton got most of his talent for absolute peanuts on long term contracts.

While I agree with your original point, I'm less sure that the above is true.

How do you mean? He left both Widnes and Leeds in excellent financial health?

No one can deny that regardless of any other recruitment decisions made by him that he pulled off arguably the most crucial in Leeds' history by nabbing Sinfield.

You do wonder how things would've gone had he ended up at Warrington or Wigan though? Warrington still sold key players around that time in Sculthorpe and Harris so he may well have moved on from them anyway. As for Wigan would he have had to play 2nd fiddle behind Farrell for too long?

Offfiah . Davis Morriaty Bateman Scott Gibbs emosi koloto Craig innes the great Lewis jones Watkins Alan tait many many more for all clubs it. Worked before and not all came as superstars during this present era of a lack of home grown superstars we need to try other talent pools can it hurt?

Weren't Keinhorst and Walters both RU first? As for recognised players it'd be very hard with the differences in salary cap unless the player had a real passion to give RL a go. Danny Care for example is a Leeds Rhinos fan, that might be the only way you'd get recognised one but as long as he's in the international RU squad he'd stay there.

Some great players listed and many others have come in the past, guess Leeds would say Michael coady and josh Walters have been picked up in recent times.
