The RL Grand Final is this year on 6th October 2012, RL pro contracts expire 1st November, 2012. (they run November to November, thought you might have been aware of that).
So what you are saying oggy, is that pro RL players who are coming out of contact in November should have only 3 1/2 weeks to negotiate and fix themselves up in future employment. That is impossible as you well know. Give your jelly a wobble oggy and come into the real world.
