Austin to Warrington
I can't believe he couldn't find an NRL team.
He’s a one trick pony - as long as you dont fall for his show-and-go, he’s easy to nullify. And his defence is awful. It doesn’t surprise me at all that no NRL club wanted him.
He will rip it up in England though - the faster game over there will suit him perfectly
He has his faults, no doubt. But there are so many players not as good as him in the NRL. Look at our team abed the teams below us.

Yeah I would’ve liked to see him transfer to a needy team (eg titans or bulldogs) before the June 30 deadline - could’ve essentially played for a contract while giving those teams a temporary upgrade.
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

Value for money agreed. We paid grub way too much. It was a panic signing
Austins asking price is around the same....
However nobody is willing to pay it.
But at least he can put his jersey on without tearing a pec or popping his shoulder out.
$750k pa? No wonder he’s off to England! That’s insane money
Word is Canberra table 800k and he knocked it back.... Thought he was worth more.
Form slumped and raiders withdraw the offer.
