How far can a journeyman travel ?

JOURNEYMAN players are common in rugby league ? players with long careers, moving from club to club. They don?t stand out like the stars and pin-up players, but each week they?re on the field, mainly remembered by the fans from the clubs they played for, rather than for stellar performances. Steady, reliable players.
