You have to admire that ESL allows clubs to sign players from other codes, and have a max of upto $300k of their salary counted in the cap. That is quite a good idea to entice players from other sports as long as the club can financially afford it. Far better idea than the 'war chest' funds the NRL would boast about that it can use to entice non league players over which never seemingly got used.
The more I see of these clowns I'm sure they have no real interest in developing the game. Reckon they'd be happy to go back to the 12 team format, Sydney centric comp. They would be absolutely hating the rise of Tonga
