He went OK at FB when he played there, from memory.
That Melbourne team would be up there. Just like the warriors, they didn't go home for months, but still won the f**king thing. The benchmark for profesionalism, every club in the comp should be taking notes on how it's done. Imagine if our club had to go into a bubble for months on end...these merkins here complain when they have to train too hard.U r kidding.They had the softest of draws in contrast to the horrendous one we were given when comp was rebooted.They were also blessed by the injury gods.They had fk all injuries throughout the season & It’s inconceivable that at the business end of comp a team would have all 30 squad members fit like they did.
Hopefully we can't see the useless merkin play at all! Does anyone wanting him to play fb remember when he f**kin dogged a bomb when chasers were coming through? One of the most cowardly things I have seen in a first grade game...
The rumour is $150k per season.
1 year + 1 year (our option)
One thing is for sure, with Roberts & BJ as centres we'll certainly be top 8 in missed tackles. I can live with his signing due to the low $ & only one year, but it's not going to end well. I hope I'm wrong but IMO we'll be lucky to get 6 games out him.
Signed for 2 years
2 years with the second year an option in the club's favour. So realistically only 1 year if it doesn't work out , which I hope it does. The club deserves a break in the signing department & I reckon Roberts deserves a happy/healthy & successful 2 years as well.
He has never been close to the player he could have been.i like this, if we lock up Laurie for 2022, then Jimmy comes in for next year and can be moved on if he’s unneeded in 2022. If Laurie needs another year in reggies we can hang on to Jimmy for a second year and bring Laurie in for 2023.
oh and if Jimmy is anything close to the player he can be then we can get a second year out of him on the cheap. If he’s a spud it doesn’t stuff our cap up at all.
