    Bulldogs fullback Ben Barba's return to the NRL is set to occur "in coming weeks" after he returned to Belmore on Wednesday, having been discharged from a health facility.
    The Bulldogs confirmed that Barba, had been released from a private health clinic, which he attended to attempt to overcome a range of off-field problems that resulted in him being suspended indefinitely by the Bulldogs.

    what a joke, 1 loss and they cut it (his rehab) all short.
    how can you get over deep childhood issues in a few weeks?

    sounds like it was a PR stunt, they don't really give a stuff about ben barba the person, just the footballer!

    Quick release from his Health clinic, just over 2 weeks is not long to spend in rehab I would think. For his sake I hope he is on his way to resolving his issues the right way and not being rushed back too soon to play for his club

    For his kids sake I hope he is all sorted out. But as someone who has an amature interest in psychology if he has big problems that go back to childhood I'd be very surprised if he was 100% after 10 days on care. But then again I don't believe anything the dogs say.
    An interesting video on YouTube is ; making a killing. I think it's made by scientologists but its worth watching if you think there are too many disorders these days.

    I guess the 'issues' are out of his system by now, and undetectable.

    One loss + One Call from Des to Greenturd + One call from Greenturd to Barba = 2 Weeks

    What wonderful news for Depression suffers worldwide. The Dogs have found a cure for it in just two weeks. Greenturd will be publishing a paper shortly in the Medical Journal, Lancet, headed: Curing Depression in just one easy loss.

    2 weeks is enough time for anything recreational to be well and truly out of his system..... He's dodged a big bullet

    Hope he's back to play Manly in a few weeks time. I'm sure the boys will give him a warm welcome.

    it's all a cover up for what the inside knowledge is for what really happened. Obviously not going to share it in this forum for obvious reasons, but let's say his team mates aren't too impressed with him. NRL went light on him considering what happened to others that put themselves in the same boat.

    No surprise there. I reckon everyone expected him back with in the 1st three weeks if the dogs loss.

    Would love to know the truth to the whole story.

    How long does it take for bruised knuckles to heal? I heard he bruised them on the boat.
