I totally understand her reasoning. A fair number of posters on here get very carried away when mixing their emotion with their opinion.

A while back someone here said a horrible remark about Brian Kelly when Kels was trying his guts out for us. It still bugs me. Kels did us proud at a time when our club was a mess on and off the field. He also had a very successful appearances in the NSW U18’s side and I reckon his team will finish somewhere between 5-8 next year. I reckon our side will also finish somewhere between 5-8 next year as well

Kelly was a massive loss. He is one of the very best centres in the game these days.

Glad he has found a home.

I played second row and 5/8 for 11 years, was in the MWSE Flegg squad and helped coach Cromer Kingfishers junior sides tough guy.
I have had enough of you thanks.
Had enough? Well that's fine. Like I said, you can choose to disprove or bag out DCE and my opinions, just keep it civil bud, no need to rant on that I have a love fest for DCE , just because I support the captain of the club I love, no need to call me a pussy. Got nothing against you personally, except when you make it personal. Anyone, I'm fine to move on, its only a forum. We both support the same bloody side and want them to have success. Fair?

Indeed.
He was described as a cancer on the side, if I recall correctly.

Hey fellas , can we get back to the #PURGE

One I’m not sure about is Tafua.

Personally I think whilst he’s a mini legend his days are past and I think the club should try and medically retire him , thoughts ???
Hate to be so disposable of our legend Tafua but it really is time to go to the UK. Despite the discount we get for a long serving player, I still don’t think it would be worthy of a position in our squad in this day and age. Funa has to be the man that takes that wing from 2021 moving forward.

No club should ever 'try' to medically retire a player.
The idea surely is, if a player is hurt and the medical report says it is a new injury and it's impossible to fully recover from, and will prevent the player from ever doing the job again... then that should be signed off as medical retirement.
Shouldn't just be a tactic to get cap relief for players you just want to drop from first grade, due to poor form related to getting older!
(although like everything else the system is probably corrupt and abused, so, yada yada) :)

Got to be on the purge list surely MFB. Just give him a little nudge and hopefully he can get a retirement contract in the UK..

Mark come on...PURGE. Did you watch the Souths I could not see Jorge scoring any of those tries out wide. Lovin' this title by the way, Purge! Very appropriate

Well when we actually do have career ending injuries they don’t grant them to us anyway

I love watching Tafua play but I dont ever get the feeling that he is going to get us over the line. I could get more excited with wingers with speed and that take bombs with confidence. We have so many options for that spot. There are centres that will not make the 2 spots available that can slot in on the winger. If we can only have 28 on the main books it seems a waste. When Jorge is out I do not see that as a real bad loss but an opportunity for someone else.
