Ouch. Poor guy :( Feel bad for him, and The Warriors. I really think he needs to be playing football for his well-being.

Welp at least he's not out for the season whilst taking up our cap. We've already lost one of our only forwards who was having a go for the season. Losing two would have been dire.

Did we dodge a bullet this year? Hard to see at this point, but perhaps AFB's knee was just waiting to go...............

Sad for him I know, but at least we won't have to put up with seeing him charge through our forwards tonight.

With Roger and Tohu out it woulda been between him and Lodge lol
Tevaga ?? Even Nikorima - at least he has been there a couple of seasons

But you are right - look at the Warriors side and 99% of the side would have less than 50 games for the club

It's probably been said before but for all AFB is a world class player, I'm much happier with the balance of our squad without him, especially when you consider that his direct replacement has been injured for most of the season

AFB seemed like one of the best players in the team but the group never looked as happy and united as they do now when he was there. I think he is a bad personality - he had his fair share of well publicised incidents on and off the field. I suspect that’s why the club didn’t put up a fight when he wanted out. Making him captain seems like an incredibly dumb idea…

AFB was phenomenal for us but him leaving has been good for both parties. Aloiai has been a fantastic replacement though it is a shame both he and AFB have been injured

I was glad to see the back of AFB...as good a player as he is, the less 'wanna-be gangstas' we have on our roster, the better.

We still have the real gangsta, or at least he would like to think so.

Fainu.
