At his age this surgery is a disaster for him. Spinal fusion is a relatively short term help. Fusing vertebrae moves the pressure further up or down the spine.

This is truth when a person isn't a professional football, without all the extra load on their backs.

Let me be clear- McQueen is an idiot if he keeps playing rugby league. The spine is critical to long term mobility. Unlike hip and knee surgery it is not highly successful nor is it generally a long term solution (especially if load is consistently still applied to the spine)

Chris, its a long painful life between today and your late 70's. I would love to have you at the Tigers. I also know that this operation will buy you three years so you will get back to your best. Still, think of your children, wife and future.

We need to sign another second rower pronto!
We needed another second rower in either case but we can't go in with McQueen under a cloud, Lawrence always injured and ET as edge backrowers.
We have to get a big lock for ET to play wide on the right and another edge forward as McQueen may be a bench player with this injury. Not to mention another prop as Lawrence went to the Titans, Boyle staying at GC and Vete staying at Warriors.
Paasi?
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

Passi is solid. McQueen's surgery went well, Eiso and Twal are good. With Grant taking his option I reckon we are set. Packer, Mats, ET, McQueen, Twal, Eiso, Lawrence, Grant,MCK is probably enough.

Forgot Aloai and Sue. That's 11 forwards to cover 8 spots with three on the bench.

Im really concerned that we have purchased two players who would be considered "damaged goods", we've done it before (Ballin and Idris) and we might have done it again in Reynolds and McQueen. Reynolds hammies and calf muscle tears are a sign that he is on his last legs .. have we payed WAY too much for him ??, and McQueen, wow he's had his C5, C6 vertebrae replaced, then had C6 and C7 fused together .. wow !!
I have my C4, C5, and C6 all fused together with a titanium plate and my neck hurts like hell especially in winter ... I can hardly bend my neck forward or backwards with limited sideways movement, and this guy wants to play footy again .. !! My hats off to him if gets back on the field let alone see the season out. We have a lot of money tied up in these two players, hope we have done the right thing .. !!

Geez, well when you put it like that it doesn't sound too good :?
And yeah, if it's true what was reported to be the amount we're paying Reynolds then I believe that's too much. Not saying he isn't good but it just feels like too much, especially considering the length of the contract.

I think McQueen may be a massive disappointment. Serious neck injury is much worse than soft tissue injuries after 5 months to recover

apparently the neck surgery he had is one that has a high rate of success and he should recover 100% from it. if fit he will be a valuable asset for us next year imo

"I was hopeful of that right up until the time that I signed with the Tigers, that I would stay here, but that's footy and that's the way it worked out," McQueen said.

"I'm getting quite old now so that three year offer from the Tigers made a big difference to the two years.

"I've absolutely loved my time up here. I am a Queenslander so I've really enjoyed being back here and the Titans fans have absolutely embraced me so I've got nothing but good words about my time on the Gold Coast."

^ hopefully he's comments were trying soften the blow for GC fans.
He'll have to do a take two when he gets here. "I'm feeling young and fresh .always wanted to be a Tiger. Ready to rip on in and have the best preseason ever."

Because Luke Brooks has never had hamstring issues?

Dunno about Reynolds, he's not young, but hamstrings can strike any age and also be recoverable. Justin Hodges forged a great career despite having tissue-thin hammies.
