    I think it would be great to have a player like SBW at the Eels. He can do things most players can only dream of and is one of the best players in the game. Imagine a team with fully firing Hayne, Fui and SBW. It would be unstoppable. What do other fans think?

    I have long wanted this. Despite what he did to the Bulldogs, on the field he is one of the greatest talents I have ever seen.

    My only issue with it would be that he isn't a halfback. A halfback needs to be our priority.

    SBW is the guy I would choose to replace Hindmarsh when he decides to retire.

    Still. Its just a rumour.

    Just a rumour at this stage, but sk is a huge draw card for alot of very good new Zealand players to come to parra when their contracts run out. Sbw, Luke, Marshall (long shot but u never know) the nz team has become a very tight squad under sk and parra I feel will b able to grab a couple of big name nzers hopefully starting with sonny bill. Imagine him hindy and smith in the back row with maitua off the bench

    I think don't like SBW for the way he left the game, but if he was an Eel I would support him 100%.

    SBW, Moimoi, Hayne all in the one team would cause trouble for any team.

    He's doing really well in Union and enjoying it atm. His chances of even looking at League are about as low as us getting Orford right now.

    Dollar wise not quite. He is keen to return to Australia/NZ, but he is money hungry. With the new TV deal coming soon, the money we could offer could be comparable to what the ARU or the NZRU could offer. If he wants to go back to French Rugby then we have no hope.

    Id take this signing if it was on offer.

    sk's impact on bringing us big name poly's doesn't have to be limited to the current nz test team, what he could potentially do for inspiring the next crop in our own backyard is far more damaging

    exactly Jake, it's funny how we choose to believe stories written by them when we want them to come true..

    this has bull sh*t space filler written all over it.

    I hate the dogs with a passion, but they didn't deserve what SBW did to them. SBW, Tahu and Lyon are wankers of the highest order. f**k them.

    for the love of god, please leave T out of this one, there's much more to the T story than meets the eye and the guy just doesn't deserve the sh*t he's copping atm.

    I don't know anything more about the T story than meets the eye. What's the story Stagger?
