    I know someone who will be happy ;)
    And I thought it was the Crusaders who just had a whole lot of trouble with their imported players.

    "FORMER Warriors, Manly and Parramatta half Michael Witt is returning to rugby league after a stint with New Zealand rugby union side Otago.
    Witt has signed a contract with Wales-based English Super League club the Crusaders.

    He joined the Warriors in 2007 from Manly but was told he was surplus to requirements at the beginning of the 2009 season.

    He switched to rugby in March, saying at the time he was aiming for All Blacks honours.

    He went on to play seven games for Otago in the NZ provincial competition this season, six of them as a substitute.

    Otago Rugby Football Union chief executive Richard Reid said Witt had taken up an offer from the reformed Crusaders club (formerly the Celtic Crusaders), based in Newport, which finished last in the Super League."

    Good for him.  This should stem the flow the other way.

    Whatever happened to Sullivan?  Didn't he go back to the Bulldogs this year?

    All those naysayers who suggest rugby is soft.  Witt couldn't crack an NPC side with all the All Blacks in Europe.

    Let's hope the Crusaders manage to get his visa right so Lowe isn't tempted to re-sign him.

    Rugby Yawnion is dead set rubbish. I try, and try and try to be interested, but when the score ends up 30-all, all through penalties and/or drop goals, it gets tedious.

    Good luck to Witty - we could have used his kicking game this year.

    From memory wasn't it Witt who made that shocker of a line drop out that actually went backwards.?
