You're missing the issue & point here.

1. No-one gives a **** if you're pissed off;

2. The guy has track record (now at his third club) at the age of 20. What do you want? People to praise him?

3. He's taking an important, and I believe expensive spot, so the pressure needs to be rightfully on, and he needs to be committed.

He's had his chance. And second chance. And last year was his 3rd chance, and his play let himself and our side down at times .

Yes, for you, we'll all give him his 4th chance in 3 years .... sure.
Bad day with the head knock lad?

With the relaxed guidelines for development players to be bought into the main squad this season surely including an unproven Croker now would not make much sense at all . Surely can not be accurate .

He is named on the website as in top squad. Hopefully a mistake. As you say the rules have been relaxed so why rush into bringing him up, makes NO sense!

I can see the logic why he is promoted into the top squad if true. Simply to save cap space. He would be on close to minimum wage with a little NRL under his belt. Not saying I agree that he is the best option but I’m guessing that’s its a move to bring in one more solid signing

Very nice side you have named there mate... certainly capable of winning its share of footy games I’d imagine.

Makes a load of sense to me. Two more signings IF Walker doesn’t pan out in February.

May be something to do with hodko? Cant see any other reason (maybe he's a centre replacement for walker):rofl:

Can anyone confirm lachlan croker has been added to our top squad making now 29 of 30?
Naming our 29 is not due until march 1, only 28 names are required at this stage and have been. We published 29 names but we don't know which 28 have been submitted to the NRL. 1 of the 29 named is not required by the rules to be in either our 29 come march 1 or our 30 come july 1.
