You apparently know f*ck all about your club's history.Preston? The bloke who played with us for a few seasons and then f**ked off to Penrith because Anderson wouldn't let him play halfback and then went to clubs were he was a five eighth/fullback? Give me a spell.
Try; the tiny bloke who was the incumbent Sharks halfback and current Dally M medal winner (over Andrew Johns) who got promised first chance to retain his position at halfback under the new coach Chris Anderson. He gave Preston half a game in a trial then moved him to hooker so he could parachute Noddy in.
So Opes puts the smallest player in the comp to play at hooker at a time when the best number nines were making 50 tackles a game. Preston was getting smashed six ways to Sunday every week, so asked for a release which Anderson couldn't give him fast enough. He went to Panthers at halfback and won a comp with them the next year.
Casting shade at Preston just shows you have no f*ckin' idea.
