Does anyone know what Orford has decided to do? any coaching roles?
Last I heard he was saying he'd be keen to keep playing this season if the raiders, or someone else, still wants him.
That was a few months ago though.
was released by the raiders
Waiting for norths to be readmitted to the NRL
Hopefully teaching our halves his short kicking game, his short kicks were sublime, his long kicks not so much
Saw him ordering a salad at World square Tuesday with Ryan ( meet Bubba ) Tandy.
On vacation with dsm5.
care factor 0.
should have retired years ago.
cue orford apologists.
D.C.Evans had the great Andrew Johns working with him last season at Manly. Orford???
he can wash the towels and jerseys, would be more of a productive contribution than his last year on the field
Really, he should have stayed in England, played out his contract instead of attempting the hard grind of more NRL. It was never in him. Poor decision.
he'd probably still cost us 300k to do the dishes
I must confess Orford went downhill after the 2008 series where he played out of his skin. His massive contribution from that period seems to be getting tarnished with his recent poor form but its important to remember Ox magic from 08 - unfortunately for him, he is only a shadow of that player. His kicks in that Storm GF onslaught in 2008 were relentless & on the money all day.
In saying that, DCE imo is already better than Ox in his peak with his ball skills & running game & with that inspector gadget fend & step, then again DCE is in the top few halves worldwide & the best thing - will only get better.
It would be good to see him back at the club in some sort of coaching role.
If he's smart he'll go back and coach on the Central Coast, I doubt any NRL club would want him in any capacity.
