    I'd never heard of this bloke until reading about him on here. That is an awesome gesture by the club for a life long stalwart of the club and a moving story. Well done Big D and well done Parra Eels.

    Yep, true champion! Glad he is an Eel and will retire as one. Ultimate professional imo, knows his place in the squad and comes in and does his job well when required.

    It has already been stated that Gower will be working with the club in a player welfare / education role. He has tertiary qualifications in this field.

    Good to hear. Not only does he deserve it but to be well qualified for it is a bonus too. We certainly have had our moneys worth from Gower. I can't think of 1 time where I ever saw him do something that I thought was useless. Absolute Champion IMO.

    Yes, a player of his calibre getting a job post career to work with young kids is great for our club. Meanwhile it was said by PKent the other night that Souths have promised Inglis an Indigenous role $300k x 6 years. How the f**k is that even legal. ?

    Mate, don't ask me about legalities lol. You'd know a lot more about it than i would and I have been a conscientious non conformist for most of my life. I still am in heart and head but can no longer afford the fines and court appearances so have toned it down as far as my actions go. I still park wherever the f**k I like though.

    I’d love to know what jobs involving working with indigenous Australians would normally pay $300k per year.
    Seems absurd that Souths can try and get this through without punishment.

    The 6 x $300k conveniently equals about the same amount he is out of pocket for the remainder of 2019 + 2020. :innocent:

    Probably best to pay it all up front.

    Which player did the roosters pay as a scout while he was suspended by the nrl? Was it our Fergo?
