    Yes indeed they were hewi . The other point that perhaps a few do not realize is that the negotiations with Newcastle had been ongoing since January and at some stage Fitzzy did accept their offer , with our mob making a belated counter offer before he actually put pen to paper . However as we now know the NRL , in its infinite wisdom has declined to register the contract due to the state of the game which is a consequence of the virus .

    I was very impressed with Tyson’s reaction after he discovered the contract would not be ratified when he said that there were larger problems in the world at the moment , the least of which was a footy contract . Well spoken Mr. Frizell , not only a tremendous rugby league player , but a man who is prepared to make sacrifices.

    Good luck to him.
    He’s put in for the Red V every time he’s gone onto the field. It’s obvious he’s had enough of the poor coaching & boring game plan which hasn’t changed under L plates watch. IMO your angst should be directed at the board & coach.
    I for one will never criticise Friz for what he’s done.

    As far as I'm concerned, he's always given everything he's had on the field. Champion bloke. I can only wish him well.

    What if he scores the match winning try against us in the 2022 grand final?

    Thanks Tyson for everything. You have given this Club a lot and you should have experienced more success in the RedV. Those who feel that Ford and Tyrell can makeup for his loss are kidding themselves. His loss will be a bodyblow for the team next year but it might, just might, finally sound the death knell for Mary.

    This is a really good post.

    But it’s not the footy people who will understand how it’s all going to be resolved, it will be lawyers, officials and admin.

    And as there won’t be enough money, major concessions need to be made in many areas.

    It should also be understood, that all this money the government needs to spend, it’s going to have to be paid for sooner or later.

    And post medical recovery, I think that’s in taxation and other measures. So we are going to have to live tough for awhile. People just aren’t going to pay big bucks to see a game and get ripped off at the kiosk. People aren’t going to pay through the nose to get games live streamed. Competition will other sports will be extremely tough. Not when you are paying 50% income and business tax.

    But if you make it through, be grateful and settle for a bit less in the world. $4m cap is probably excessive, depending on how long this bastard thing kicks on for.

    I am not talking about a young developing player trying to improve his game and establish his career..

    In 2019 Frizell played well below the level he was capable of and had been playing at in previous seasons.
    He found a way to play harder and with more intensity in State of Origin then went back into cruise mode for the regular games.

    As a senior and representative player, I expected him to maintain form and lift his team mates despite any poor coaching they have endured over the years.
    With an injured 2nd row partner in Sims and others missing via injury and being stood down, the Dragons did not need him playing average for the whole of 2019.

    I am a big fan of Bennett as coach or any other top line coach coming on board.
    I just don't like Frizell looking elsewhere for success when he contributed to the Dragons poor year in 2019.

    WRONG ..... St George have won 15 PREMIERSHIPS WITHOUT ILLAWARRA & as ST GEORGE ILLAWARRA they have won 1 Premiership. So ILLAWARRA DON’T take credit for the other 15 .... COMPREHENDER . The reason why we can’t win 11 in a row again is because a ILLAWARRA OLD BOY IS A CANCER TO OUR CLUB .

    If you're in the Grand Final, obviously Mary has been sacked, so better than today?
