Its cost cutting pure and simple driven because CL clubs "cannot afford" the wage demands of riders wanting to move up but they are very happy to chuck silly money at PL double downers and end of career former world level riders. 

Imposing a sensible and workable wage cap on the NL is fair enough but the same should be put in place for the top of the CL too. The promotions only want cannon fodder on the cheap at the bottom end to free up more cash for the high rollers. Thus the introduction of the cheap rising star scheme.

so how many of the cheap cannon fodder are being chucked in at the CL deep end who didn't have a team place in 2020? Smith (but only because Bailey isn't available), Alcock and Hume?

Utter rubbish.

Have you ever been involved in riders wage negotiations ? Whoever the rider is , at whatever position, he will be after the best deal he can get and the promoter will try and get him at the lowest rate he can get, that’s human nature. All riders and promoters talk, they all know what the going rate is so no one  gets hoodwinked. Reserves will get reserves rates.

I do like the look of the Kent side. Only one total unknown (to me) and only one weak link who will improve
