    Not with the way he defends. He's at this point, a net negative.

    He also knocked back a 4 year 3 million dollar deal with the Raiders about a year ago, which will surely go down as one of the greatest regrets of his life, he'll never sniff that money again

    But yeah the ESL will suit him, his game is tailor made for that competition. I'll be stunned if he doesnt tear it up over there

    I can’t believe he knock backed that kind of money.

    Even at his best he’s barely worth that much.

    I think most agents of halves who have 1st grade experience have convinced them they are much better than their track record and they are holding out for big overs.

    Me thinks a few of these plodders might be very diaappointed. Austin is just one of the first of many.

    Or less is more if your coach aint Rick?

    The money Raiders offered was silly but knocking it back was batshit crazy. Warrington couldn't be offering much more.

    Gotta respect the Raiders for not going back to the table with Austin though.

    Not quite true
    We went back to him in the off season and tabled a “substantially” reduced offer
    That was also knocked back and at that point the club decided to move on

    We dodged a massive bullet when he knocked back that contract.

    If he's not kicking himself for the rest of his life he's mad. How he felt he could improve on what we offered him I will never understand.

    Looks like the Sims boys will once again be working together to totally dominate and intimidate opposition teams.

    Kudos to the Dragons for not photoshopping Dragons gear on him whislt he is still on Broncos books. Classy. Not all clubs are.
