Jai Field.

Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

At least that's talk for 2023, but you give me 99% of Aussies and given half the opportunity to return to Australia and the NRL and they'll be looking for an early release. At the end of the day, home is where the heart is; in reverse ask John Bateman, Williams, etc and as an NRL player the salary uplift would be considerable.
Just my thoughts on stuff mainly that's happened over the years.

It is interesting that they say Field is a good player. Let’s hope we see some of that...

Fully agree. We know next to nothing about him really. He’s pretty much a new signing for us (presuming he’s here for 2022) and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can bring, along with the other new guys.

The jury’s out amongst the coaching staff as well.

That contracts aren't watertight as per my previous post and to re-state that any of our Aussie newcomers (including Field) can be lured back home if there's a sniff of an NRL deal in the offing, and history shows that IL would would not offer much opposition.

I had no problem with this public actions on and off the field.
I agree - i didnt really find him strange - as my previous post it seemed to me he came across and wanting to be a mega star, he was massively into the over the top American superstar narrative like your basketball and american football

I just found him very quiet & that he didn’t interact with the fans!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Nothing you can say that gets close to "as mad as a box of frogs" that I think someone posted earlier?
