What loyalty, aside from JAC leaving later this year that you have already mentioned, their CEO left earlier this year, it's Bellamy's last year (according to Bellamy), they have signed no one new for next year (is that the Bellamy leaving effect?), they have 12 players off contract this year and have resigned only 1 (Hughes) and they only have 6 players signed for 2023.If the Cheese comes it because we have paid overs to be honest.. I dont think we should underestimate the player loyalty that club oozes and they rarely lose players they want.. JAC would have stayed if his family were all down there 100%.
I totally agree with you there. He was a running hooker & Des turned him into a tackling hooker. I thought Des was supposed to be a genius.Lichaa had the talent to succeed. Des destroyed him as a player from a psychological POV, IMO.
Kept lichaa and let the parra hooker goI totally agree with you there. He was a running hooker & Des turned him into a tackling hooker. I thought Des was supposed to be a genius.
He probably bought the right man for the wrong job. I feel sorry for Lichaa. I just hope others learn from that.
Is the new Brisbane side actually locked in or is that still just something the NRL are thinking about?This sounds like Brandon Smith has agreed to terms with the new Brisbane Jets starting 2023 which is why he announced/suggested he was staying on at Melbourne next year.
