    Amen to no aitken at the very least.

    I love how the club believes that they aren't good value, yet they believe Paul is?

    Go figure...

    Hate to be that guy, but...

    Aitken and Dufty both have contracts. If they are to leave it means they are both going to have to find someone willing to pay. Given their form, that’s not guaranteed.

    A Sydney club had shown interest in Aitken, but unfortunately he rushed out to meet them, misread their intentions and missed that opportunity.

    He then waved his arms about and blamed his winger.

    If this is true then it makea the rumour about us being in talks with a very promising young back very strong, and if it's a fullback, the puzzle starts to take shape.

    A clean out that’s blames everyone but the organ grinder, if Aitken is so bad, and he is , why has he played 20 odd games this season.
