    Mortimer has been released by the Slimy Eels & is officially a Rooter for 2012. Apart from the Eels late charge in 2009 is pretty average anyways imo.
    Think its fair to say he would be lucky to shine Foz's boots so should be an astute purchase for the Bondi boys. :p

    How about this for a roundabout.

    In 2009 the Eels fought strong opposition from the Bulldogs to re-sign Daniel Mortimer. The Eels had Mortimer on the books for a while and had plenty of faith in him, so much so they listed another young half Trent Hodkinson lower down the priority order and he was picked up by Manly as a result. 2010 sees Hodkinson at the Dogs and in doing so squeezing out Ben Roberts from the first grade picture, and as a result he ends up signing with the Eels (along with Sandow admittingly) and they now have no need on their roster for Daniel Mortimer.

    Crap clubs and crap halfs can mix and match however they want as long as DCE and Foran don't get on that roundabout!

    You never know, he may come good with a change of scenery. I hope he does go well and really rubs the slime's face in it.

    I bet Parra are still having to contribute 100k of his 200k salary.

    Parramatta did a make a GF with him in the team so he can't be too bad. I blame the media for touting him as a superstar too early and I think he was made the scapegoat for Parramattas crap form. I think he is a tough little guy and will be a decent pick up for the chooks.

    Robeson was also in that team which says something of the quality of their halves. They were lucky that year to get that close and nothing more

    they had Jarryd Hayne in rare form, which he has not been able to reproduce, but for that purple patch he was dynamite.

    agreed Fro.

    They were languishing in the bottom 8 for most of the season, then they just had a great run home. Hayne played some outstanding football and they went with it. There was a fair portion of "luck" in some of their wins that year too.

    Most Parra fans would tell you that too

    He's an ordinary player. I just can't see another team coming close to our scrum base pairing. I think we look very good for 2012.
