Compare that to last season, where we had Lainton, Smith, Pearson, Summerfield, Redmond, Grant & Hooper on the bill, all of whom I would wager were on contracts of more than or around 1k per week. Harris too in the second half of the year. I could be wrong though, I don't know for sure.

The point is, we didn't have a whole lot more money to build the team in 2011/12, just better management.
So how did we accumulate such a large debt then?
Despite their failings the WST managed the books far better.
