He says he’s coming home because his father as COVID19.

He’s expected to sign for Toronto Wolfpack!
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.

Pity to hear about his father, hope he comes out of it on the right side.

One of the best attacking centres there's been in recent times. Trouble his his defence which at times can be poor and other time dreadful. I was worried when we were linked with him as I really don't want him at Wigan.

Hope he finds what he's looking for at Toronto.

Slightly random question but is there a ball park figure of how much time Toronto players (especially British born) spend in Britain during the season?

How come he had to resign from the NRL to come back? Surely he could have come back and returned when the NRL started up again if that was possible at the time?

He would only resign if he'd a contract to go to and ready to sign.

That’s an old rumour, he isn’t.

While ive no doubt he would want to be with his father thats a complete smoke screen to "quitting" we arent even playing rugby at the moment , Corona suffers take a matter of weeks to go one way or the other - so theres no way he would of had to quit for that.

Expect him at toronto - he has been living off past reputation for years now, never had the effort to back up the talent
Always be yourself - unless you can be Dan Bilzerian then ALWAYS be Dan Bilzerian!
