Cheats Don't Prosper

Saturday night will have seen a massive sigh of relief at the RFL and Superleague headquarters. Warrington crashed out of the play-offs as they had no answer to an almost perfect Hull FC performance under knockout-king Kear.

One of the sides who 'used their initiative' and exploited the registration laws of the game to bring in an antipodean superstar has fallen at the first hurdle, now all Red Hall fingers will be crossed that the same fate befalls Bradford.

There is no doubt that Andrew Johns signature was a massive boost for Warrington and gave both fans and players a belief that they could make it all the way to their first ever Grand Final. In reality, it was even too much for the great Johns, who goes home £30k+ richer, with Warrington getting no further than they would have got without him. Still, I bet they sold a few more shirts!

There are two teams left in the competition with short term signings. Hull FC have Sione Faumuina, but he picked up a shoulder injury in the last league game against Warrington and was missing from saturdays line-up. He could make a return for the Bradford game, but looks doubtful.

Bradford have the SouthStand darling Adrian Morley, who was turned down by Gary 'we don't do that kind of thing' Hetherington and therefore went to the Bulls for his quick buck. He's been hit-and-miss during his three game so far, but overall is a definite plus for Nobles side.

The RFL and Superleague are bound to make moves to plug the loophole which has been exploited by Warrington, Bradford and Hull FC. It would make sense to put a registration deadline in place, at say 1st August, beyond which time it is not possible to register further players until after the Grand Final.

Johns has added some excitement to the end of season for the Wolves supporters, and a certain sycophantic SKY commentator, but it has left a bitter taste in the mouths of most of Superleague. Wolves exit on saturday night has proved one thing...Cheats Don't Prosper!
