Ooh, not sure. That would bar all existing prem players though from becoming marquee players other than at their current clubs, no? Seems potentially illegal or at the least distinctly unfair.

Yes - but one of the points of the marquee rule was to allow clubs to defend a couple of home grown superstars if they so desired. From memory, a marquee player has to come from outside the existing premiership - which can mean an academy or a foreign player. It's not illegal because it doesn't affect the players' terms (it's purely a variation to the salary cap) and it's part of a commercial agreement between the clubs. If it were illegal, then so would the salary cap as a whole.
