I reckon he was truely desperate to get a premiership with us this year ... after one of their tries he was giving to everyone in the huddle ingoal ... dont think i have ever seen him do that
Makes me think he wont be back
Sadly he will kill it over there and won't be back.
At this stage I think he will be back...he probably won't even start until late this season, if it all, and it's a tough environment in the Top 14. But things change too. If he kills it over there the money will be too good.
It's hard to say before he even gets there but I definitely think he regrets signing up for toulon
It's more than that mate. Flight time is 21 hrs which doesn't cater for stopovers, waiting around etc.The 20 hour or so flight time to Fiji compared to 4 hrs may just be a factor too.
No more weekend get aways!!
Also not sure if his club will be as accomodating as the eels on his regular trips home!!
If he does well over there he won't be back. The money is just too good, the NRL can't compete.
If, however, he has issues in France and doesn't get game time or gets cut, he will be back asap. Whether it is with Parra, who knows.
We'll miss him.
Won't even see out his 1 year deal and he will be back before we know it.. take it to the bank.
I think he regrets signing the deal in the first place tbh - at the time he was copping a lot of heat and was all over the papers and TV, he just wanted to GTFO of here.
