RFL inquiry as Mattinson signs for Workington Town and Whitehaven

Workington hooker Graeme Mattinson’s future is up in the air after the Rugby Football League admitted they’ve received two registration forms for him – one from Town and one from Whitehaven.

It has been no secret within the rugby league rumour mill that Mattinson’s former club Haven would dearly like to re-sign the highly-rated star.

And News & Star Sport understands that Mattinson signed a contract for 2013 with Whitehaven, on September 1. But he then decided against rejoining the Recre outfit and signed a new deal with Workington at the beginning of this week.

Town chairman Dave Bowden released a statement on behalf of Workington Town which said: “Graeme Mattinson is a Workington Town player and has re-signed for us in line with RFL regulations.” He refused to comment further.

And a Whitehaven spokesman said that Graeme Mattinson signed for Haven on September 1 for next season.

They declined to make any further comment.

A representative of the RFL told News & Star Sport: “Clubs can approach players who are coming out of contract and players can talk to clubs as from September 1. Any contact prior to that would be regarded as an illegal approach.

“The RFL’s registration manager Chris Thair will be speaking to all parties involved.”



What do you think of rail services in Cumbria?

Good. But there is always room for improvement

Not good: There needs to be much more investment

I rarely travel by rail
