The former Castleford Tigers rugby league player Ryan McGoldrick has put himself up for auction on eBay to find a new club.
The 35-year-old Australian, whose team in New South Wales folded, has described himself as “used” and “only surface scratches and rust” in the post.
The advert has attracted 38 bids of up to £215. - The winner of the nine-day auction will be required to pay McGoldrick that sum per game played.
It says: “You are bidding for the playing services of a used (234 games) but well maintained rugby league player. Played a variety of positions but now most probably suited to the halves.
“I have had 6 previous owners (Cronulla Sharks, New South Wales Waratahs, Castleford Tigers, Hull FC, Salford City Reds and DPC Roosters) and am now looking for a new owner. I have been serviced regularly and come with a full service history (google).
“Am currently based in the Northern Rivers region of NSW but as postage and housing is at buyers expense relocation is possible.So the bad bits.... In the past I have been known to not see eye to eye with the odd referee and my judiciary history is quite extensive however as I have gotten older those problems are now behind me.
“Oh and the game payment does not include after match refreshments :)
“Bidding price is per game for the 2016 season.
“This item is advertised elsewhere so may be removed before bidding ends.
“Bid for Victory :)”
