    Was awesome when he was with Cronulla, but I saw him at a Bronco's publicity day in Brisbane recently. He looked overweight and disinterested. I don't see him getting back to his best form anytime soon. A no from me.

    Isn't Jack riddled with rheumatoid arthritis or was that someone else?

    Having been a lifetime sufferer, if its true, he will have his own demons from it and would not be a good investment for our club, regardless of skill level. I do wish him all the best, though.

    I think he may be one of those sign and take the money players . We tapped him on the shoulder didn’t we (?) so he may believe that he doesn’t owe us anything.

    OKB..has had it for a long time if not for most of his life and was being managed by our club and by Cronulla. That alone should not be a reason to avoid him...but there are others.

    I'd only take him if we could register & re-unite him with his former premiership winning coach in Flanno!
    Not interested under the present Peanut whom would spiral his career down the gurgler.

    Performance based contract and I’d take him as a centre.

    Lol.

    We are about 4 years late. The time to get him in the side was back in 2015 when we could have given him a rookie contract. WIthin 3 years, he had won a comp, rookie of the year and played Origin whilst at Cronulla.

    Instead, we deemed Dylan Farrell and Dane Nielsen superior centres and decided to make Euan Aitken our boom rookie instead.

    Not much point getting him now - he needs a coach and a structure that can get the best out of him. He'd probably go well somewhere like Manly.

    Of course, we might just pay him 300k more than he's worth and hail him as a returned hero, to be crucified by McGregor's coaching and the fans at a later date.

    Correct....massive gamble...no from me because the coach would more than likely dumb down any skill set he has left.

    Really hasn't played football for 2 years and for me would be too much of a risk.

    As someone already said he doesn't look interested in playing football at this present time so I would pass

    For some strange reason I pissed myself laughing reading the names Dylan Farrell and Dane Nielsen (although at least both could tackle ok).
