    That’s Mary’s and Millwards fault.

    If Mary had taught him more respect this wouldn’t happen.

    Also if Millward had of just offered him whatever he wanted he wouldn’t have an issue at Manly as he’d still be with us.. probably killing it.

    Our club is such a shambles that we are affecting other NRL teams too now.

    Well that's a nice surprise. I saw the title and thought you wanted to sign him!

    This should be merged with the ‘Least liked players’ thread.
    He certainly qualifies.

    WOW - for Manly squad to refuse to play with him, is a huge call. What an idiot if true...
    Roosters gazumped us years ago...and they quickly turfed him too
    We dodged a bullit....

    Well young Hastings certainly didn't live up to the hype. The wraps on him were huge. I saw him play a few games in the 20's and didn't see what all the fuss about. I thought I must have been missing something.

    He has apparently had problems with team mates previously too. Maybe he believed the hype too.

    Perhaps the Dragons use Hastings as a Trojan Horse, he goes to other clubs who think he is a footy player on their door step ....only to discover too late what lies inside the package will pull their team apart

    Hopefully Storm is the next port of call

    Then a return visit to the Rorters!

    I'm not sure how you get here from there.
    Word was he was always an arrogant little w***ker when he was with us and always wanted to play for the Roosters to follow in his fathers footsteps.
    That's 3 clubs he has been punted from for his personality traits.
    I dunno how you lay that at the feet of St George, some
    people are just born d**ckheads.

    He obviously has some personality issues that need to be addressed. In all honesty, he can't be too bad a bloke for not fitting in at both Roosters & Manly.....that In itself is a major battle having to go there!!!

    I watched an article on him and his dad and his dad (Kevin) said he wasn’t around when Jackson was growing up! Maybe this is a factor no father figure!i thought when him and bird coming through we would have a tandem for the next decade fast forward to today one is overweight and over rated and the other has been run out of three clubs due to personality and attitude issues

    Hey, I doubt Bird left Cronulla with a good taste after they took the gamble on an untried rookie and turned him into a SOO player, so don't discount there being "personality and attitude" issues there too.
