    Funny how he was the greatest club half ever to draw breath around Origin time each year, and now he's safely out of the joint he was going to learn from Cronk.

    I think you must have been reading the Panthers forum on Moylan.

    I was beside myself when Pearce was punted, I mean left. I spent a decade bagging him on the Roosters Chookpen Forum. However he wasn't as bad as many made out, he just was nowhere near good enough to have a mortgage on the Roosters halfback position.

    I thought about this very scenario too.... If they're serious, why wouldn't they go fo him. It would be genius. The best (potential), game breaker in world rugby league and the all time greatest cross coder (Brad Thorne excepted) in SBW together growing the game in Canada and the UK....

    Latrell has dominated Origin, won back to back NRL titles, got a highlights reel 98% of players will never go close to. And he's 22 years old.

    Steve Mascord right now somewhere in the rugby league universe is willing Latrell to go to Toronto and get his name in the same sphere as Dally Messenger....

    Well, he reamed Will Chambers in the 2018 series when the Blues won... That'll do for the sake of the argument...

    We're so loved by the referees they let us lose the penalty count every week

    So much love

    Yes. Winning the penalty count, scoring a try from a referee mistake, the referee changing the original call from a Raiders knock on to a Raiders penalty, the referee correctly calling play on instead of six again (which would have been the wrong call)

    So many things benefitting the erm, erm um........ but the refs waaaaaahhh

    The Raiders lost because they didn't defend well at key moments

    The Roosters attack was better in those moments

    Its got f**k all to do with referees
    Stop making pathetic excuses because something happened that you didn't want to happen

    I did say it was a guess and that is taking in to account he is in the twilight of his career.

    What would you say he is worth?

    $700k minimum. He'd get a $1M+ if he hit the market.

    How does Mitchell seem like a pain in the ass of the field?

    Chooks would've got him cheaper than anywhere else would've. Not because they're cheats just it's always cheaper to retain than recruit and I'd say JWH is very happy where he is.

    Holding the chooks ransom
    to get his brother a gig at Easts

    the constant babying that Robinson has apparently had to do for him

    needing periods away from the club to go home to Taree
