Look it was and is a complex situation that is not easy to explain or one that I can really go into. It’s just my opinion, Everyone is entitled to their own.
For sure and its my opinion a player leaving his team mid season is scum.
So ET is scum for leaving the Panthers mid season? Or MWZ and Tui? That’s a very broad swipe.
U work out the difference
No difference except the jumper,,
They all jumped ship , you’re being a tad hypocritical,

Apart from that, how do you know any of them were scum?
How many of them do you know?

Austin is a terrific bench player that you bring on for impact (as he did with us). There’s no place here for him now though.

I don't understand why we would sign Blake Austin when we already have Benji, Brooks, Reynolds and Gamble. I don't understand why we would sign him to play fullback either when we signed Lolohea to do that.

I remember when we had BA before he left us we had long discussions of how he could fit in our team..

I suggested he could either be a Jamie Lyon like play making centre or a ball playing lock like Glen Stewart.

I still believe either of these roles could be an option for Blake in our team or another...

Or he could play #6 at Parramatta.

Can’t defend, and is no better than current options in any position.
If we are going sign players from here on out they need 2 things.
1. To fit the mould of the team.
2. Be prepared to get dirty and aim up in defence.
Austin was dropped not for lack of point scoring, but because in the last quarter of their first 2/3 games he folded like paper in defence, becoming a target late in the game.

What exactly is the point?
It’s just like anyone of us leaving our job for another.
It’s not “oh hey it’s christmas better get a new job now”. In reality that’s just not the way things work.
People sign contracts all the time and if a team has no room for a signed player in their 17 each week sometimes they encourage them to seek a future elsewhere.
Or if a player has personal issue’s away from football and a relocation is the answer than sometimes players need to move on.
Is that the point you were trying to make?

We signed Lolohea to play Fullback but replace Moses at 5/8.

As a Moses replacement at 5/8 he was pretty good.

As a fullback, he is in Regges. I would swap Gamble and Lolohea now.

As for Blake Austin. He would make a great Center and he is talented. However yea. we have so many people in the 5/8 position. We need an off the bench X factor but I think that is Marshall this year.

Austin, providing nothing's wrong with him, would be good again for us! Benji is probably playing his final year, and Reynolds days at 5/8 are numbered. He's probably better sharing dummy half duties. Austin has the strength of a lock forward, and would cover the centre well, besides making breaks! But it would all depend on his fitness!

Word is his contract isn’t being renewed. Trumpy says sign here. Not paying overs though.
