Board and CEO backed coach over player very publicly.

Board and CEO very publicly sack coach after fallout.

Board and CEO agree to bring player back.

What a plot twist.

Well Ivan must definitely be reading the forum lol. You wanted a ball playing fullback he got you Mbye. You weren’t happy with the number 9 he got you Farah. He is a coach of the people lol.

It looks like a done deal to me, some people on here are going to be very disappointed, but me I don't care, JT should have let him get his 250 games, and our current number 9's are just not cutting it, so we should improve with this signing.
Well they can’t have it both ways. They can’t complain about the hooking position and be upset we are getting a genuine hooker. He has shown in 2 games of first grade this year he is much better than anything we have. Cook has praised him for the improvements in his game. Let’s hope Liddle can gain from him aswell.
He also had a pack at Souths that bent the line every time they run. Lets see how he goes with our powderpuff pack of late.

On the recommendation of the coach. In other words they have stuck to their part of the deal with Ivan and are giving him full control as per Ivan’s request before signing a contract with us.

Hopefully being a reserve grader for the past year has knocked his ego back into check.

I don't expect an apology to be forthcoming to the fans for the way he (and his agent) bad mouthed the club but it would be nice. Hopefully he can remain professional for the final few months of his career.

Hopefully it might also push Rochow out of first grade.

I read somewhere about Panthers picking up a young under 20s hooker who they think is a gun. he'd cover for Cook through origin if true.

Did Cook switch clubs too.. :?
That leaves Souths without a hooker.

GEE I REALLY HOPE, all u doubters end up with egg on ur face, because we have been terrible out of dummy half all season and if robbie can give us good service and some go forward then iam all for his return. just remember all attack starts from ur dummy 1/2.
geez some people miss the point, I for one keep saying he is a very good player... it is the way he treated the club, the way... ammm uummm never mind blah blah blah.

Good luck coach!!!
Treated the Club? He was bullied into Reserve Grade to force him out cause the Club didn't want to honour his Contract.
There's 15 other Clubs if you are that down about it hop along.
hop along where? geez, getting personal now are we? I am not down. Who told you I was? oh my, some people really? I was just expressing the concern I have for the club. The club has made the decision and I am ok with that... they know better than I do. So we will leave it at that. Good luck coach!!!

PS. they were honouring his contract - only that he was playing in Reserve Grade - there was no promise that he will play in FG all the time or did I miss something? was there a promise in the contract that he will be in FG all the time?

oh boy, some people... welcome RF and good luck coach!!!
