Would be a good signing at the right price don't you think? Would come cheap I reckon he isn't getting any game time and would be what we need coming off the bench when Marty n Addin have a spell. Would provide some mongrel

I thought he wasn't getting game time because he had surgery and then first game back got suspended?

Plus he's playing this weekend.

At a time when we’re struggling a bit, an option like Fudge might seem like a good idea. He must come cheap right?

However when we have one player going through the judicial system on very serious charges;
A star player (currently injured) who has had a few issues; and
Another suspended because he can’t control his mouth, we don’t need another problem child.

After awhile it starts to impact on the club’s reputation and attractiveness (to sponsorship deals).

He was close to medical retirement earlier this year apparently, so you have to wonder whether he will go on beyond this year.

Turned his life around, which is no small feat as he was a thug/grub. For that he should be commended.

We are good for props. Don’t need to turn off sponsors any more than we already do.

Sipley very similar type player, would like to see Sip given another go as never seen him let us down and in fact, adds legitimate mongrel without the dirt....there's a difference between an intimidating player and a thug....Packer is Thug category

Fair enough. Although I think people may be forgetting that our pack loses go forward when afb and Taupau go off. Even at full strength. I don't think our rotation props are all that tbh.. Paseka, Keppie, Boyle, Sipley. Also add no fear factor.Just my opinion but

Agree Sipley ahead of a few guys in the 17 in my opinion
