What will be will be if Luke goes good luck to him and welcome to whoever steps into his boots
He might feel fit and be eager to play, but no way is he match fit, not after 10 month out.

I’ve never seen such a strong rumour get so little coverage other than on this site.
Mainly cause like 95% of the stuff posted on here it's made up by someone who's bored and looking for attention?
I do wonder if players egg on rumours just to see how far they get and how many people believe them at times. It is a cheap form of entertainment after all :D

I also think agents play a huge part too.

Joking apart, there could be some truth in that Hudds - I'd do it for a laugh if I was a top player :lol:

If the Moors rumour is true Albert Vete from storm looks to be available and would be a decent option.

No....Just no.

Bad agents like Andy Clarke & Willie McKay are bad for sport but there's tons of good agents who do no end of good for players.

I beleive I've seen a clip of Gale from this week's Rugby AM where he once again states he's contracted to us for next season and is currently concentrating on nothing but getting fit.

I suppose the 'good' agents will just sit on their hands and wait for contracts to run down (especially the 4 or 5 year contracts) whilst not making any money from their clients at all. Only the 'bad' agents will falsely try and drum up attention or unsettle their clients in any way they can to get more money. In that thinking, only bad agents make money. I would love to believe your thinking Sheriff, but 'money' and 'commission' are involved so I cannot.

I get that it’s easy to be cynical, but to tar all agents with the same brush is lazy & incorrect. I know an agent & he regularly goes above & beyond for his clients & genuinely has their best interests at heart. If he were to calculate his commission into an hourly rate then trust me, he’s working for well below the minimum wage.

They only make money on new contracts - there is only so many ways to get your client a new contract. I would ban them from ALL sport. Just my opinion. Would be interesting to know how much we've paid in recent years in agents fees.

Nope.

x% a year of contract.

Say an agents fee is 5% for example and the player is on 100k a year, the agent will get 5k of that a year not 5% of the entire contracts worth on signing.

But sure, you ban agents then players won't get endorsements, cars on the cheap etc etc. Agents do more for players than you'd ever imagine based on your clueless comments.

Like I said 'my opinion' but you've childishly resorted to insults. Some of the posters on here seriously need to act their age, almost every post that someone doesn't agree with just goes downhill with insults. Pathetic.

IF Gale is fit (and he says he is) then he should be playing if we make the play-offs.
We have shown we can compete, but we are lacking in two areas:
1: Scoring points when we are on top. Gale gives us more chance than Jamie Ellis.
2: Goalkicking. Gale is the best.
If he’s fit, he should play.

If Gale does go can we send Jamie Ellis in his luggage.
