This system where we’re signing players over a year out from beginning their contract is ridiculous.
Clubs mostly create their own salary cap issues from poor management, but this is a pretty crook condition to be dealing with.
Anyway, I thought the NRL was meant to be stopping clubs from getting in these situations. Like, they were going to prevent teams from signing an excess of players like this situation (if it is true). They seem to have spent a lot of money though
