The NRL are reportedly introducing a “backflip” clause for player transfers and Wendell Sailor shared his thoughts on The Rush Hour.
Clubs will be given notice when a player is willing to accept a contract from a rival team.
The team in question will be given a 10-day period to convince their player to stay but also won’t be told any details about the rival offer.
Wendell Sailor wasn’t sure about the idea.
“If you sign a contract, your decision is made,” said Sailor.
“I know some players have done it, I know [Daly] Cherry-Evans has done it,
“Whatever is going to help our game, a bit of theatre.”
The deal will give more power to players and agents, as they will be given this 10-day period to “backflip”.
More importantly the NRL will be aiming to end controversial, late u-turns that have always garnished controversy.
