Ex Castleford Tigers Player Ryan McGoldrick has failed to sell himself on auctioning site eBay after he infringed the websites rules reports BBC Sport
McGoldrick currently a free agent after the side he signed for in New South Wales failed to recruit enough first team players.
The listing which was titled “1981 antique rugby league player” who is “well maintained” and comes “with a full service history” was removed due to “goes against their terms of selling body parts and remains”.
Before removed the auction attracted just 22 bids for his services at a price of £215.
Speaking before his listing was removed, the 35-year-old told BBC Sport: “If a really feasible option did come up and it worked out, then I will go do it.
“I was at home speaking to my father-in-law and he came up with the idea to put myself on eBay and let them decide where I play.
“We were talking about different options and I had just found out the club I was at wasn’t going ahead. This gives me a little bit of time to think and assess the options I have in front of me.
“I am really open to seeing where it goes, if there is something serious then I am happy to sign a contract.
“There have been a couple of enquiries from England too but I have told them that postage comes at the buyer’s expense. They’ll have to make sure they can afford to get me over there.
“I hope I am not going anywhere too cold. If one of those sides come in for me, it will have to be in the summer months. Don’t expect me to train over winter!”
