    Not on your life! Left the club so his wife could be with her family in Brisbane. It didn't work out with the Broncos so he went to the Sharks (yep, that close to her relo's isn't it?) & St.Helens even closer!

    For mine he went for extra money & burnt us. He makes my list go to 5 now: Laughton, Haumono, SOB Williams, Tandy & Barba. The Bulldogs hall of shame!

    Won’t happen. He left to move closer to his family :p he needed to be around his support group in McKay. That’s why he moved to Brisbane.....

    He even said if he couldn’t get a release to return home to Brisbane (McKay) he would have retired from league. Because money wasn’t important (even though he went from 450k to 870k). But it was always about family. That’s why he chose Cronulla too because it’s closer to home or something :nomouth:

    Such a shame the way shit ended with him. I reckon he'll never have another year like 2012 ever again anyway. I can't forgive him for the shit he pulled in 2014 we fuckin needed him.

    I've always thought that his 2012 season was so good because the obstruction rule hadn't been changed. He is elusive and pretty quick, but thats a lot harder to combat when you have a 100+ KG player blocking the defense from getting there to tackle him.

    I don't think Pay would shaft Mbye at this stage, lets see what he has to offer, Moses is pretty quick too.
    Our roster is pretty much decided unless Beastwood pulls out.

    Hopefully Mbye becomes better than barba and putts that rat in his place so we never have to mention his name again.

    I can't forgive Sonny Bill and barba for the shit they did for us. It makes me sick seeing $onny bill in our hall of fame.

    Love this post dude. I went on a tour of the training facilities as a reward for being a member of the club for 10 years. It made me so sick to the stomach seeing $onny bill's name in the hall of fame. Fmd i would put pricey there before him.

    I watched that game, and Ben looked pretty good. The commentators commented about how he was not fit or playing to his best last season for St.Helens, so his performance was a bit of a surprise. The game might be a one off; we'd have to see how he goes for the rest of the season. The level of defence in that game was nowhere near the standard in Sydney. Ben looked heavier, and slower - I think he would struggle in Sydney these days.

    Let it go. It wasn't all his fault.. Bloody Des could've given the 2012 dally m player a Payrise for his troubles instead of bringing in that clown Trex on double Barbas money.. No wonder he left the way he did

    He left us to go to the Broncos as he would be closer to his children. Left them after 2 years, comes back down here and goes to Cronulla. That shows you what kind of interest he has in our club.

    Neddy no no from Wahesh!
