One of the 8 players the new clubs can poach from other clubs for free. If 8 players went to the expansion clubs came from us, we’d get a compo pick, but nothing for just the two (Houghton and Cain). So far.
I get what you’re saying, but I said ‘so far’ (as I’m only Houghton and Cain so far), not ‘so fair’.IP, that does not seem unfair.
My memory is a bit foggy, but when we had expansion teams in the men’s, the new teams obviously poached players from other teams. I’m sure that the club losing players, received some compensation.
The new teams need players, but I think a 2nd round pick could be offered for each of the 8 players taken.
