AFB could be gone for while

Mate I thought I was the only one that had noticed that, He's been very poor not running at the line with any pace at all. Your right I thought Kelpie was going to be a star the way he finished last year but gone backwards this year.
I agree. Very lack luster. Plus refs are pinning us more than ever at the start of games.

I am suspicious of this so called “nrl physio”. He or she simply reads or hears on the radio whatever suspected injury a player has, then quotes a textbook on the general recovery time for that type of injury.

He/she purports to speak with authority and inside knowledge, but in reality it’s all pure speculation.

We where very poor last night and didn’t deserve the win but there is one thing that pisses me off even more. That’s that muppet Perenara.
Every match he hammers us and not being bias as well. We get the odd 6 again but would be early in the count 10m off our own line. He will hand them out to the opposition on the 4th and on the 40m line. He manipulates the flow of the our games big time and we always seem to be getting punished.

We got more 6 again calls than the Warriors and they had 20 min with 12 men and we couldn't beat them. Can't blame ref for our lack of ability.

I agree. Garrick ain't too bad. I like the team. Luke Garner or personally I like Bailey Siro he s off contact, playing great and they have Jai Arrow coming in. Would like to play along side his brother as well
Bayley would be a good snag

AFB has been poor since that suspension. He's dropped his bundle big-time. I just don't think there's much team unity out there. Just watch the talk out there. Several players aren't interested in anything being said by the team leader.

I might be way off track but he has looked disinterested since they published the top 100 earning players in the paper. From memory he is on considerably less than both Marty and Jake. So he may have thrown the toys out of the cot.

Funny but a friend commented the same last night. He's blown a giant dummy spit since that article. Wouldn't be surprised to see him next year looking to move on or get a release.

I think this top 30 would be fairly strong considering all the game time players are getting this year. Alot of depth in every position. More importantly I reckon its achievable salary cap wise

Mate your right on the money I have big raps Jr Siro and think that would push big bro to keep his starting spot in the side

But surely they’d know ( roughly) anyway.

I agree he’s been despondent since he was suspended but I think it’s more to do with the suspension than pay grades.

Just saw on Twitter 1-2 weeks , but not officially from the club so take that with a grain of salt.

That article ain’t gonna do us or DCE any favours. Irresponsible of the club to offer it and DCE didn’t pay any mind to the team dynamics and quality that would surround him when he took it.

Wish we could renegotiate it

Of course they know what the other players get. Its 2020 people not 1985.

He's been very poor. I'd be starting Paseka over AFB once he's back from injury.
