    You are not going to get them all, but I think Sullivan being a young indigenous kid and on the smaller side might be the sort of kid Thurston may have a soft spot for and could mentor him even part time maybe once a month do a session with him.

    Uncle nick lets plenty go. And if Flanagan doesn’t live up to what Uncle Nick expects, he’ll go the same way as Maloney, Hastings, O’Sullivan, Pearce etc.

    As big Kev once said, I’m excited.
    I like plenty of others have been so despondent for a while now that if this goes ahead it will put a spring back into my step over the pre season.

    The Flanagan rumour fits for another reason - he'd be desperate for another first grade gig and wouldn't be asking big bucks. Exactly our type.

    Please be true

    FWIW, Greenberg was reportedly "very impressed" with Flanagan after their meeting, according to ch7, whatever that means...

    I’d say it means channel 7 interviewed Greenberg..


    But I could be wrong?

    We could also get SBW to work with our backrow, Cameron Smith to work with our hooker and Hasem El Masri to work with our goal kicker.

    Of course he does. He makes judicious decisions based on their value.

    What is your point mate? Seriously did you get bullied at school or something I just mentioned Sullivan is a similar player to JT in terms of being on the smaller side and has been compared to a young JT would be nice to hook them up even for some free advice.

    You understand that having opinions challenged is part of being on a forum, yeah?

    Of course it would be nice to have Thurston mentor a young half, but is it realistic?

    Between his commentary commitments and the academy that he has already set up to help disadvantaged youth, where do you think he is going to find the time to come and coach a young footballer? And for free? Based on what? That they’re both indigenous?

    Come on we all know Todd Carney was a much better 5/8th.

    The battle of the 5/8ths was played up in the media leading the game. Jamie won the battle on the field that day but Carney won the pissing contest
