I’ve been gone for over a month, much for the reasons listed by Mark, Budgie, Komori et al.
But with a difference, I don’t have a problem with anyone here really, I was just over reading the same stuff on every thread every day. It was taking up a lot of my brain space.
For the past few weeks...
So it seems to be a thing now, if a player is dropped to reserve grade he immediately wants out??
Going on recent articles about Sam Walker and Lomax, maybe Schuster and Flanagan, just because they got dropped? Seems ridiculous.
Also Freddy Lussick at Warriors is going well, although he was poached by Parra when he was 17 I think.
That's two competent dummy halves gone.
Daniel O'Donnell is in Flegg, a local boy, son of Dave. Going nicely as a dummy half. Gotta keep him.
It has paid some dividends, but manly has traditionally done better with a mix of locals, country boys and Queenslanders.
I think adding some western Sydney guys has been a good thing, but I’d keep the other channels open too.
