    Don't disagree but I just think that Mary thinks Sailor is a number 14, he even said so in s interview. (Wish I could remember the exact date).
    Hopefully Mary has less say and he will be used correctly not a winger but fb or back up 6.

    Do tell Possm...no dont worry... I can guess...They are all from outside the 50km radius from Wollongong CBD which I understand is a big problem.

    But before you go there Tariq sims was signed by Warwick and Vaughan was signed for not that much but obviously deserved to be upgraded after his explosive arrival

    I would really like to know about the rift between Merrin & Morris. Are you sure about that?
    And a little birdy told me that Jack Bird wanted a guarantee 1st grade position the next year before he played 1st grade and decided to go when the club would not.... and whilst I agree with the club stance it was a mistake but what would of been his best position?...cause Widdop was a better 6 than him IMO.

    I loved BMoz and still wish he never left...
    Merrin was told by too many how good he was or will be...and just listened

    Saab is our future BMoz. Give this kid time. He is only young so you can't expect him to go out firing. His debut was quite special apart from the final minute.

    I dont blame Saab for the final minute as I believe Souths had blokes stand in front of him as blockers under the ball not trying to catch it and took his legs in the air but that argument is now meaningless.
    The final seconds Yes..he should of stayed out.

    Apparently there's a rumor that since Bird's departure some players who have signed on after have a clause in their contract on a minimum number of NRL games to play to keep their profile up for their next contract .Kufusi was one. Kick in the guts for the local young players waiting for a chance if true.

    Merrin IS good.

    Wayne Bennett wouldn’t have picked him in the top 17 grand final winning team in 2010 if this weren’t true.

    Unfortunately, his career was derailed as soon as the ludicrous decision was made to move him from prop to lock. As with many others (besides monetary reasons), he left because the writing on the wall was clear with McGregor in charge.

    It was post Bennett era while he was was young and being tutored by Micheal Weyman which was a great thing. It was the Price era were it started to unravel a bit playing fancy with footwork and offloading at the wrong times and it started to go a bit to his head..FACT.
    Look how good he is now and still not that old.and where he is playing..dropped from representative and Penrith were happy to let him go as not worth the money he and manager thought he was

    Penrith’s coaching continued the rot by keeping Merrin as a fancy footed lock, when his best footy was a head down, bum up style under Bennett,

    Fact.
