Have a feeling Folau will be in the NRL next season.

I would suggest... no chance! :lol:

Although I am not Sarginson's biggest fan, due to his positioning weakness and inability to draw defenders and pass to his winger. I do think we will miss the amount of yards he makes.

Judging by our squad/signings then we surely have to assume Bibby is a direct replacement but I haven't seen enough of him to comment.

Why because the cancel culture who took his comments and got him fired. For what is a freedom of speech issue. If he wins his case Union in Australia is in real trouble and they are not that financially viable atm. Looks really bad on Qantas if what rumoured they said is found to be true.

If the NRL stand in his way and he wins his case they leave themselves liable as well. This has the same issues are Colin Kapernick in the NFL and he won an un-discloused amount in a deal. And I bet its bigger than his Nike money.

Nothing worse than an SJW shouting freedom of speech when someone says something they disagree they forget the freedom of speech they have take to Twitter because they have no real courage to protest in the persons face.

Well you certainly seem invested in it!

I made no comment on the 'freedom of speech' aspect, if you want to call it that. I just believe the NRL will take the view that Folau is a headache they just don't need.

It's not like they are short of talent.

Since Sarge starts ahead of Hank, we have to assume Hank replacing him would be a downgrade.

That leaves the question as to whether Bibby is an upgrade or not?

The other problem is that Bibby plays on the left.

Could it be Gildart is leaving in a shock move to Canbera :?:
