    He has now become an actor and musician.

    But he should be back playing rugby league in the NRL He was a brilliant finisher, almost as good as David Mead.He could also play full back. He is still only 29. I hope that some NRL club head coach has the foresight to sign him up.

    I think with his musical talent he is lost to the game of Rugby League, with songs like "Oh my Gordon" he will be an international superstar.

    If Gordon joins the Dragons, the 2020 competition is over before it starts....

    He was actually a very good winger. Do you think he might come back to help the Philippines qualify for the 2021 RLWC Albert?

    I looked it up and it took two seconds. He retired because of a chronic hip injury.

    He had a few bad injuries in a row. There’s a doco on YouTube about him working up to beating the clubs bench press record while he was out with a knee injury

    Denan Kemp did an interview with him on the Locker Room recently.

    He looks like he’s cooked himself.

    I believe he’s the assistant apex to Remy Casty, and helping to form the most explosive top ball duo ever seen

    He lost $700,000 because of the two years of his contract that he was unable to fulfill. What a shame.

    I enjoyed watching him playing not only for the Titans, but also playing for the Philippines, where he was a terrific full back. He could have helped build the Philippines rugby league team into an Asian power house.

    I hope that his acting career takes off.
