Exactly, Pascoe should have gotten rid of him a year or so earlier instead of backing down.

Should have signed him for two years as Potter wanted instead of four years as it ended up.
There is no doubt that Robbie should only have been signed for 2 years. Once he was signed for 4 years though we should have kept him. It's like making a dumb mistake and then deciding let's make it worse.
And then to make it worsen more he wasn't played the last few games when still in excellent form in front of monster crowds. As pointed out earlier the 4 years was due to the extent of back-ending, to make easier and smoother - so was reason for everything. It will be odd when Aaron goes charging through him - they will probably smile.

if South finish higher up the ladder than WT next year who is the winner?

Same as Bulldogs and Ennis

"handled extremely poorly from the clubs side"...and blah blah blah blah.
Id like a dollar for every time that's been said on this forum.
I beg to differ. Bottom line they got rid of him! Full credit to the club.

I don't get this comment at all. The club got rid of him. I can get that. They also did it in a poor way with no apparent benefit.

Robbie must be really really really bad news but it doesn't seem that way when you see guys like Fifita, Dugan, Ferguson, Carney, Pearce etc playing rugby league.

Let's see how it turns out. If Robbie bombs at Souths and we have a great season that will be awesome. I can't see that happening though. I think we'd be better if we are paying him for him to play for us.

Anyway it's over.

Is playing in tonight's game with Cook in origin.

Apparently has been good for Norths this year in ISP so should be interesting.

I would say if IC offered him a low priced deal and conditions that he was like Benji and not the main focus he would come back to finish his career.. I would not say no at the moment as our number 9's are terrible..

Farah did 62 tackles, many of them around the legs as well as being into everything else - and he performed 80 mins almost still on his legs.

No way I want that grub back at the WT, he carried on the same as Mitch Moses.
Good riddens.
What' Ivan's mantra "The star of the team is the Team", that would not be part of RF's thinking.

Onwards and upwards
Not backwards and downwards

Easy to shine behind a hot pack like that

He was good but as said above, its very easy to shine behind that pack. Jacob LIddle would go to the next level playing behind a pack like that which bends the advantage line and gets quick play the balls.

For the same reason I want to see more of Nathan Clearly before we commit $1m a year.
