I thought that was just a story fabricated by that dickhead journo in the courier mail.
Yeah it's the same guy who keeps linking Foran to south Sydney. How the f**k could we afford Foran?
Absolutely, he would be a walk up start into our current back line.(displaying right attitude)
So do I.
Gi is going nowhere with or without a reco he will return stronger than ever keep the faith DKOR,id love to see dwalkz back again too...Shadow...
Tedesco has had injuries, but he doesn't seem to have problems every other game. I hope GI gets back to his best because he is one of the best players in the competition when he is, but I don't think he will.
I know GI is only 30, but you have to remember he first started playing first grade when he was 18, and he has played a lot of rep footy as well.
Tedesco is arguably one of the most injury prone players in the competition! He is only 24 and has done his ACL twice from memory, had a cracked fibula, fractured his patella, had a shoulder injury (can't remember what it was) and has also broken his jaw. I don't know about others but I'd hate to be investing a whole lot of salary cap in a player who has suffered all these injuries at such a young age. The thing you need to realise is that he is only going to get worse at he gets older.
I'm not so sure if I agree with your assessment of the development of the players you've mentioned. Sam Burgess was a superstar from the moment he arrived on our shores. I remember in his debut season, he put in arguably one of the finest performances I've ever seen in a South Sydney shirt against the Dragons in the final round of the regular season. It was a must win game and he played the whole 80 minutes and he was the best player on the park in a losing side. Where Sam has matured is his discipline; he always had a petulant streak in him which resulted in him doing stupid things, often when things weren't going his way e.g. giving away dumb penalties, pulling people's nuts, poking people in the eye. Thankfully he has seemed to have learned to control himself a lot more out there.
Cody Walker is an interesting one. I remember reading that he suffered injuries when he was at Melbourne and was just never really given the opportunity to excel. It seems absolutely unbelievable that he was never given the chance in first grade considering he is a genuine match winner. Where you do have a point is when you mention attitude. If Dylan Walker doesn't make it in the game he will only have himself to blame because he has more talent than 95% of players in the competition. He was rightfully sacked because the club was having continual problems with him and hopefully he has taken it as a wake up call in the same way the likes of Josh Mansour have. In saying that, I don't think we need him back at Souths at this point in time given our depth in the outside backs.
we do need dylan walker back just like we need teo back but at least we dont need bully back becoz the farah/cook combo is fine....Shadow...
Dylan reached stardom far too quickly----the way he behaved both on & off the field suggested a whopping big head!!!
But,he is an extremely talented player ,& a Sths Jnr ,so I'd definitely take him back.
He would be the best player in our 3/4s by a fair margin too!!
Doyen spot on great truth telling mate at its formidable best so now all we have to do is off load tyrrell/turner/clark/nielsen/murphy/kelly and resign teo and elevate fuimaono and talakai to the forwards dept, are you hearing me madge?it makes sense there is no need for these (6 duds) to remain at souths any longer i know our recruitment area of prowess is very poor and sadly so it wont happen the broncs and cows and the storm must be laughing at souths with these (6 duds)that would not even get a bench position at these 3 clubs mentioned above its time for change souths think before you buy and also think before you upgrade a player in the case of jason clark AKA whom is a ""glorified nsw cup player"" in particular .....Shadow...
I'll be a bit surprised if he returns in the near future doyen because we may not be able to afford him.
Manly supporters want rid of him though.
Sounds like he wants back in. He may take a leaf out of Robbie Rochow's book, sign a cheaper 1 year deal to go to a more desired club.
That may be the only way Diego, but do we really want to sign a player with such poor defense?
His defence is comparable to Goodwin and Jennings. His attack, especially if he is reunited with gi, Reynolds and Sutton is on a different level
OK, I'm not like some others that spit the dummy when someone disagrees with them.
It wasn't so bad when we had him if I recall. Honestly if he wanted back in I'd take him for a reasonable price and time, but I wouldn't be chasing him too hard. Gotta see how Hymel Hunt goes also.
On a similar topic, it's a bit worrying (dunno if that's the right word) that we have so many left side centres. Gray, Jennings, Goodwin (on the outer) and Inglis, who I'd prefer to move there at the back end of his career.
Jennings and Goodwin can play right centre, but I like Hunt there.
