    Maybe we should consider bringing Ben back. In this most recent Super League match for St Helens against last year's Grand Finalists (not a bad team) he had a hand in 7 of 8 tries scoring 2 himself

    I'd prefer not to. He had plenty of chances with us and really left us in a hole after we bent over backwards to keep him happy.

    He is a player that should have gone down in the history books, that 2012 season...... that was one of the greatest individual player seasons I have ever seen.

    Even if he was the next Darren Lockyer I wouldn't take him back.

    Once you're gone. You stay gone.

    There is nothing special Barba did in that video that Mbye can't do for us.

    So thats where he went. He will carve up over there.

    I don't mind watching him run around for a pommie club, it made me sick watching him play for the Broncos and Sharks.

    2012 was a great year. He was unstoppable and I sometimes wish that he was still with us. Although don’t forget that it did go to his head. The way he would go off at fellow players, the cover up that the club did for a serious domestic matter. The off field problems the club tired to help him with. The altercations he had with club mates.

    Think we move on and finger crossed MBye can be a superstar

    Fun/annoying fact
    Barba never lost a game against us either with Broncos or Sharks and you can include 9s in that too!!

    Match payments of a bag per try.

    That will fire up both his white line fevers.
