    Mad merkin deserves his own thread.



    There is a #thanksbeau thread on twitter today. Some nice tributes. Don't scroll too far down otherwise you'll be reading about Beau the merkin who ate all his flatmates food in 2011.

    Shouldn't this be in the June 30th countdown thread?

    Great player in his day but the correct decision to retire. Has struggled for some time.

    A pretty good career and I reckon we got about what we expected from him,
    There's a few fishing vids on youtube with him if you look em up.

    He played some bloody good footy for us too ... defensive stalwart - strong as f**k - one of the best one on one tacklers we have had in a long time .... i remember a period of games where all the tries we conceded were when he was off the field

    He bought a lot of intangible qualities that we lacked at the time. His biggest influences on the club don't appear on a stats count.

    Always liked his style of play wherever he played and thought he added plenty to us in terms of leadership before injuries ruined him this year.

    Glad he played for us!

    While he struggled this season I thought on the whole he was very good for us, great one on one defender and did plenty of work off the ball.


    I’ll never forget the night he ran down Turbo Tom at Brooky and saved a try, it was a Hindy like play and there can be no higher praise.

    We was very good for us. Always need someone like him in your pack. Who will do that job for us now? Brown isn't feared enough.

    Great career overall.

    A 550k + player who played 1.5 seasons off the bench and also dropped to wentworthville

    Another short sighted signing by brad. 550 could have nabbed Kikau and had 200k left over

    Sady I agree.
    Beau may of played his final few yrs here but I dont see him as an eel. Had 5 or 6 good games. Unsure if ever had a mom performance .

    Overall below average signing
