    If that's the case more ammo for the English to use as in another Aussie not able to cope in Super League.


    But I don't trust the source. These guy's have been pushing the Orford's coming home for ages and you never actually see the word's coming from the man's mouth.

    where would you rather Live Ant, Bradford or Sydney.

    Good luck to him if he can get good coin there, doesnt change the fact that he was overpaid and overrated when he played for us.

    That would differ from day to day. If he was smart he would have signed with Catalans in the south of France where the weather is great.

    Fair Point, but he may want to come home.

    but yes South of France would be far preferable to England.

    Now this is just my opinion but I think what is happening here is just frustration of a)Being injured and not being able to get out on to the paddock and play and b) the side having a poor season.

    I doubt that you'd hear anything about it had he been involved in a successful side,  funny that.

    It might do with the fact that the Slimes have a lot of moola to throw at him, meaning he could live in Australia. With a family that would be miuch better than those icy cold winters, along with having to live with 40 million English (plus all the African and West Indian migrants.)

    He should have thought about that before he shafted Manly for the big dollars.
    (Actually, he did us a favour but I shouldn't spoil a good gripe by mentioning the positives).

    I'd be very surprised if Ox participated in the poker nights and he doesn't have immediate family to worry about or use as an excuse. Just get on with it and honour your contract!
