    He is back

    http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-league/league-news/willie-mason-signed-by-knights-20120418-1x70l.html

    I think it will be interesting to see how he goes after 2+ years out of the game (I do not count the ESL and union...)

    Inspired or a joke?

    I don't think it's a joke considering he's on a match day payment contract, you would think it would bring the best out of him and he'd leave nothing on the field to try and earn a bigger longer term contract.

    But while poisoning the team spirit ? Thats just what we would need right now.

    Well, at minimal + match payments, its obviously a judgement call.

    Can you imagine him in amongst our lot while all this contractual kerfuffle is going on.

    I know a lot of people don't like Wayne Bennett but he is a no nonsense type of coach, he just might bring out the best out of pencil willie.

    I can see him providing only a distabilising influence on Drugcastle. All good news to me.

    His best is way behind him. Just how long ago was he at the Dogs?

    I think he will go really, really well and on match payments they have themselves a bargain

    KE, loved him at his best for the Blues, but that was, what, near a decade ago. So I don't wish him any ill will. Look at his club track record - it doesn't smell - it is a full on stink. I wanted him with us when the opportunity came up some 5 years ago and I got word of what he is really like. I didn't believe it but it came true (again). He may have mellowed but I honestly can't see this cat having changed his spots looking at his last two years. I'm predicting all tears for the Knights and a quick exit. :)

    I'm of the other opinion MB, with the way our forwards stocks have been decimated this year I would of been happy to hear the club had signed him up for the remaining 20 odd games.

    With no George, Darcy, and trex and the uncertainty surrounding Glenn....I would have taken the punt on match payments.

    I know what ya saying MB, but he still has some of that quality in him, and knows this is the final shot. Will be surprised if he bombs

    I think hes the type of guy a team in the dumps need , he will add some fun to training and will try lift the spirits, hes got experiance at all levels also.
    I think he will also try make an impact before he hangs up the boots when ever that may be , he will have something to prove, i rekon might not be a bad a buy as some people may think.

    Haha - you stalking my comments KE? Good to see that the Knights have the 'best' and legendary Messiah coach on board and with Big Willie are headed for what? Looks like an early Mad Monday to me :p

    James Graham is my buy of the season! :)
