Great insight mate, cheers for posting it.I've never met TPJ, but I have met his older brother Tevita who did some concreting work for me last year here in the Capital.
Re his name: His brother said TPJ actually changed his name to Tevita which is their Dads name because he too wanted to carry his Dads name- that's why the Jnr exists.
His older brother & their crew are the nicest most respectful employees I've ever dealt with in all my time in construction. Simply just good people.
Back then, I told his brother that I was a big fan of his brother as a player & wished he would come to the Bulldogs.
I got no issues with all the previous media beat up about TPJ's previous indiscretions, as we all know the media cakes it on. And at the end of the day like all of us when we're young we can all make a mistake or 2. None of his were that big a deal.
On 9 news tonight they said that he was moving back to Sydney, getting married & having his first child.
Personally, I think we've got him at the most perfect time in his life - ready to settle down & priorities providing for his young family.
Welcome TPJ, can't wait to see you in the Blue & White of the Bulldogs.
