Maybe they can only squeeze one month's salary into their Salary Cap spare change?

Policing the salary cap has always been a moot point.
That's what happens when the baboons or buffoons run the zoo.
Football though massively flawed does not shy as Ranger's, Manchester City and those with greater knowledge than l will reel off many more examples.
The cap has been ignored, exploited, misinterpreted and so on.
Wolf Pack may be of the opinion if we stay within the rules we face relegation so why not chance our arms over to you Red Hall

Gosh we made a good start here only 3 weeks in ..
A team either openly braking the cap or about to
A player who wouldn't get a game in any other sport brought in
Top ref suspended on what must be serious matters as he's just hired a top lawyer to represent him

Could they get round it by their dual reg club signing him and use him that way?

I personally think in this 4 week trial they will offload o'brian to free up space to sign gigot on a permanent basis

Gareth walker on twitter.

Asked the question of the RFL on Tony Gigot's move to Toronto and their salary cap situation. He has been registered as an amateur while he trials at the club (Super League can sign two on that basis this season) so will not be paid to play

Deary me.

Jeez and I was just being sarcastic.😒
So to get my head round this, Gigot refuses a new contract at Catalans, moves to Canada to ply his trade, and does so for free? 😂😂

Somebody followed that up with amateur players can only play reserve games no idea if that's true

So, the rules seem to be that he can play four games for Toronto as a trialist.
After that, they have to sign him to a professional contract if they want to keep him.
The trouble (for them) is that they can’t currently fit him into their salary cap, so need to clear some space. Firstly, that’s not going to solve the main issue they have of having a small squad, as some will need to leave before they can sign Gigot permanently. Secondly, they are going to find it difficult to move players on as other clubs won’t be willing to offer the kind of salary Toronto have given them.
Losing Gareth O’Brien isn’t likely to do enough to create the required room on the cap for Gigot.
I wouldn’t mind him playing for Toronto for four games to get some match fitness back and then moving to us. If he’s willing to play for free, surely he’s willing to move somewhere and play for money?

Does Noble's departure free up any cash?
