    If Dugan was to try that approach no club would touch him afterwards, this would basically be his last contract, by going to that ploy

    And besides, the angle of the club would be obvious to any other individual & would back Dugan to take that stance. There is no way a player of that calibre, our best back last year, should play reserve grade.

    I’ve still got Dugan at fullback well in front of moyza, based on all we saw last year.

    Before the Momorovski swap deal with Wests ... but now ?

    I doubt Bellamy would even consider it now, unless we footed minimum 75% ... if his attitude is poor, Super League is where Duges will end up, no other NRL club will touch him.

    So players would back a player who has come back unfit with attitude problem, still dosent want to play wing, where just to play first grade is a privilege, he is a paid employee and expected to do as required.

    No different to a white collar or blue collar worker, if he dosent like it find another job elsewhere, or put his big boy boots on suck it up and do what is expected of him, if you listened to the boys podcast, Dugan has not come back with right attitude

    Morris didn't buy the dogs who underperformed. That was all Flanno with Gals advice.

    Sure but he's what 29 and off contract? Not a smart move.

    Also he wasn't our best back last year, Morris was.

    Oh the irony ;)
    Let's see how it plays out then ... as usual, you will be proven totally wrong.

    Even without the swap they wouldnt touch him with a ten foot pole. They are astute buyers.

    How it plays out is irrelevant. Bellamy has a clear job description for right centre. Titans are also interested & so are Roosters. If his attitude is that poor, the Sharks will be happy to let him go & pay half of the freight for next 2 years.
    Or perhaps it isn't, & they won't, because he is probably our first back selected for first grade.

    Iron Hair Chad is first back picked. 100+ consecutive games and counting.

    Duges and Moylan must go down as the two worst signings in Sharks history....Not the worst players we've ever signed but purely from a financial point of view, to have over 1.6 million of our salary cap tied up for the next 2 years on those 2 is a massive mistake. Ironically they were both knee-jerk reactions to losing Jimmy and Birdy and neither of them have achieved much since either.

    I didn't mind the signings so much, but 4 years for each was typical Sharks' stupidity.

    Thanks Flanno.

    While we might have to pay half the freight to offload Duges....think of the money we could save on trainers..

    Lol. The trainers get paid less than a back ended Gasnier deal.
    Sometimes we used to get half a sandwich a warm Gatorade as a bonus
