    LOL

    BTW when was the last time you watched Donald play? If Orford does bomb Scotty then I will be happy because he very rarely drops them these days. You have to remember he was 25 when he played for you and has got better in his overall game since.

    Donald won't have the chance to drop any when Robbo uses him as a launching pad.

    Actually - and I'm being serious - the last time was against Penrith, and they bombed to his side of the field, and he fumbled the ball, the opposition grabbed it, scored and won the game from that play.

    That was the last time I believe he played for The Eagles.

    Man I was filthy at him in that game.

    He also dropped the ball when he had no one in front of him which would have probably won us the game.

    Steppa came in for him after that, didn't he?
