Definitely a major bummer that AFB is wanting out due to "compassionate" reasons. Me thinks a tempting bag of cash and other benefits have been wafted under his nose. Contracts aren't worth the paper they are written on these days.
yeh bro, first he wanted early release to leave Sydney now its same reason...... I suspect Redcliffe or Broncs have got to him. Thats 3 years of contract. No way can we release without like for like or compensation.
wat sucks is is so many guys signed on unders, hes one of the highest.
Would be nice to keep it in the bag to go elite HB shopping to replace SJ, if we could get enough metres from our developing players. But they more 115kg like Barnett type size. But Penrith seem to do wll focusing on the spine.
