Matai & Menzies
I can't help by get the feeling that beaver has stayed on one year too long.
I hope now and time will tell I suppose but by all reports his body is geting injured too easily now.
Mate, when I saw his first 10 minutes and how he didn't much get involved i got that exact same terrible feeling in my stomach - that he might pull a mid-season press conference and announce his retirement coz his heart isn't in it. Funnily enough, this injury might invigorate him and he might realize how much he misses it and comes back firing.
I would like to think so because he deserves to go out on a great year.
However he has had the groin and hanstring injuries all offseason and for the groin injury to flare up again in the first 20 minutes of the first game of the season is not a good sign.
Lets hope that it is not chronic otherwise he could have real bad season.
