Great interview this evening on Freeport's RL Backchat.
For those oldies like me who saw him live still glorious memories.

He had so much ability, no doubt about that.

OVerhyped, didn't even come for a full season, just putting himself in the shop window, wanted to go straight back to Aus, didn't really love wigan, cared more about his other clubs, only wanted to win things for this own profile...

He didn’t come for a full season because it had to fit in with his Parramatta off season as usually happened then with our players going the other way.Why would he need to put himself in the shop window when he was already an international and Origin player with two Grand Final MOTM awards in 1982 and ‘83 plus a GoldenBoot winner in 1985.Parramatta was his only club(besides Wigan)and he played his full career there. As for being “lazy” I remember how when we were getting nowhere he would stand back and take a good look around and then usually do something special.I remember David Stephenson saying he would take a tackle himself before he would let someone else get buried. Pure class.

im guessing Mikes post was a tongue in cheek reply due to the current Jackson Hastings comments
