Nah Freddy is getting reappointed - i think Brandy was sick of squirming of NRL360 after getting beat or being asked the tough questions.

He didn't look well or comfortable at all whenever he fronted up and had to answer the tough questions this year especially.

I am not surprised he is going

A shame that dope Fittler can't follow him out the door for a clean slate all round.


Agreed.

They should appoint BA as his replacement. The media love him and he is such a players coach. Perfect for SOO.

NSW make it so now!

PARRAMATTA EELS centre Waqa Blake is hunting a deal in Super League.

League Express can reveal that the Fijian-born flyer has had no interest from rival NRL clubs regarding his signature and has therefore switched his attention to the northern hemisphere.

Surprise surprise. I think he was hoping Pou would get appointed as a recruitment manager at a NRL club.

Ah was about to say something about Gus. Still can’t believe that he picked TPJ this year. You can’t tell me it wasn’t cos Gus told him to do it. My guess it to make him desirable so they can move him on to another club. Didn’t work so nek minute golden handshake and he’s a boxer.


More than likely Gus was using being selected for the blues as a way to get players to his club and extra 50k per game is pretty good on top of your contract..

Did he reach Sandow levels?
I wouldn’t call him a rocks and diamonds player. He always had great running and kicking games, and before the shoulder charge was banned he was a functional defender. After that he was a defensive liability. He lost confidence and lost interest, and was lost to the game. Don’t forget we didn’t sign him because no club wanted him. Souths wanted to keep him, and Bennett rated him highly.

If I recall Souths let him go because they had Adam Reynolds to replace him.

So has Waqa Blake. His rocks:diamonds ratio just kept climbing every year. It’s bizarre. What must’ve been happening in his life off the field?
I think it increased when you tried to convince everyone that wing was an acceptable position for him. Sure his strengths suit it but there are non-negotiables at every position and his weaknesses meant he isn’t a winger at any competitive level.
