Canberra is probably the only place in Australia where Poms could get homesick.
The Canberra Raiders could be the next club queuing up to splurge on the NRL's halfback market after star import George Williams expressed feelings of homesickness to the club.
With his partner expecting their first child, the England star reportedly approached coach Ricky Stuart a fortnight ago about an early exit from his contract which still has 18-months to run.
Williams has become the cornerstone of Ricky Stuart's playmaking stocks with an ability to organise, ball-play and marshall his troops around the paddock.
But having arrived in Canberra weeks before the global pandemic, he's been unable to see family, leading to a bout of homesickness which he has expressed to the club.
I just realised that I don't miss the two referee system at all.
when it was proposed, I was a fan. 1 ref keeps the 10 metres (how easy is that), the other takes care of the ruck.
Yet in true nrl fashion, they managed to screw it up just so incredible badly!
1 ref + captains challenge seems to be working better.
