    He has been shocking today. I am talking Frawley shocking.

    I am starting to get nervous about next season. Have we bought a dud?

    Just looks disinterested.

    I think he is homesick. He thought (at the time) that escaping Sydney was the best for him.
    It was ok in the beginning but after a while, it starts to sink in.
    He is missing his daddy (Des) and his kids. I know that I would be homesick after a while away (even a week) and be missing my kids. Wouldn't miss Des though!! :p
    He also knows he ain't achieving shit with that Warriors side.

    He's rubbish. He's doing the exact same things everyone complains about our halves doing.

    He's in a dud team. That's it. His kicking was bad but that's about it. Still miles better than anything we have.

    The only thing to worry about he is joining another dud team lol.

    He is fucking shit and will be useless with the current squad we have in 2017. I hear rumours he wants out as well from his contract next year

    He's last his best, he's mentally fragile and comes with a lot of baggage.

    Terrible signing. I don't feel good about it st all.

    He has ALWAYS had a very very good halves partner and a star fullback in his teams.

    DCE, Norman and Johnson.

    Next year he will have shit outside him and teams can focus more heavily on him.

    Not looking good

    Hopefully it's true. Would love nothing more than for Woods and Forans deals to collapse and us just hold onto the coin for some real signings under a different coach for the 2019 season.

    I said this last year that going after him is pointless. His mind is fucked up after what happened with his wife. Stop ruining our club with Manly's past.

    He has played a fair few good games this season but he's been highly inconsistent.

    But don't worry, Des will....

    He wants out because he knows that Hasler won't be here next year

    We will dodge a bullet if he doesn't play next year for us as he is mentally and physically shot to pieces now

    Wasn't happy when we signed him, he is not the answer.

    Just another t-Rex, used to be good, signed on overs after their used by date.

    Last year cut short, mental problems marital problems custody problems. Surgery . Missed entire pre season didn't start running till Feb didn't train with team till late march club debut April

    His hearts not in Auckland

    He will be better after a full pre season and more importantly when he gets to see his kids on a daily basis

    I don't expect non fathers to understand the latter point

    But will his heart be with the dogs ? After all he rejected the club 3 times previously and only signed with the club to be back with his children

    Pretty valid point TBH. There was a period where Thurston was shit for the Cowboys and good for Queensland but it turns out it was 'cause he had a shit team around him.

    This year Thurston played brilliantly and everyone thought the Cowboys would fail without him. But here they are still winning games.

    Why risk injury when he's not going to be there next season, and no chance of a premiership.
