    I agree that we aren't getting value from him but to claim he faked a sickie is a bit OTT. Wasn't he admitted to hospital with a virus?

    Probably but it sounded good, still he let us down when we needed him,it was an oportunity to show his worth,murray was sick, he played, you shift heaven and earth to put that jersey on wouldnt you? I would.

    I wouldn't shift heaven and earth to get to work if i was hospitalised with a virus, so why should we expect a professional footballer to?

    Someone has obviously never been sick as a dog I agree he is not giving great value but when your really sick you can’t play that’s just the stupidest comment ever

    Yeah i agree that George would not be happy but I also think George has been playing for a couple of years now and hasn’t been earning what he’s probably getting. I like the Burgess boys and the ideal situation would be for us to keep them all together but with teams like the Eels prepared to throw big dollars on him it seems pretty unrealistic. After seeing Bateman play for Canberra this year I would take Thompson in a heartbeat.

    I dont know, if i made as much as they did for 7 months of the year and i was playing for a new and upgraded contract, to show that i deserved it, i would, to show my mettle and tenacity. Is that a good reason?

    George is certainly underperforming for us. Has been since 2015. He showed great signs last year but that form hasn't been there in 2019. Still, I will back him to get back into form by the end of this year, he has half a Season to earn a contract.

    The Mole - Wayne Bennett's secret mission to sign England Test star Luke Thompson: https://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/the-mo...-mission/2894df14-e4e1-4be6-b52d-217ec213ac1c

    Lurker reporting it too and there is talk Richo is over there with Wayne.

    What a signing this would be if it happened. I've only seen him play for England in Tests but he has impressed me. Highly rated too!

    7 months? Souths were back in training by December.
    Take the emotion of being a supporter out of it and you realise that football today is a job first and game second for these guys.

    Id say it would also be a fishing expedition, we need wingers ,centres and the odd forward and probably at cheaper rates

    Off topic but Junior Tatola has the same manager as Robert Jennings. Resigning him might not be as easy as first thought. Hopefully he is happy and he just wants to stay at Souths.

    Only through 2019.
    Unless someone comes in big for him, i dare say he wont be signed until September/October.

    I’d sign him soon he has been way better than George and probably only wants half what George wants

    I agree but from Tatola's POV, his worth between now and season's end could spike. It's likely that he (led by his agent) will hold out for now imo.

    Yep, Lurker is reporting it's just a matter of signing the paperwork now for Su'a. Make of that what you will.

    I'd love to have Su'a at the club! Kind of wanted him ever since the rumours last year as I think he is one of the best young forwards coming through in the game.

    I mean I don’t even think you can blame that on his agent. Anyone with half a brain would wait out
