I think he’s conceding he probably won’t be here. That’s how I read it. It’s really up to the club. If we want him, I’d say he’ll stay. If he goes, we didn’t care enough to retain him.

The issue I have with players like Sue, is that they play out of their skin when they are playing for a contract. He has been going great lately, but once he signs will he revert back to plodder mode. At the right price he would definitely be worth retaining but not on what he is supposedly on now.

Ok, I remember Ray Warren stating that he wants to be known as Jesse from now on.
Why would Rabs want to be called Jesse :lol:

I have no problem with Sue leaving the Tigers but with JJ Felise & Grant left/leaving and the Tigers only signing Clark at this stage then our front row stocks are looking thin. It would be nice to know prior to season's end replacement forward signings but I guess we just have to be patient even though as a Tigers supporter my patience does get severely tested at times!!

In regards to the theory he's playing well to get a contract. If he gets re-signed, it will be a 2 year deal max. If he was to sign for a year, then he will be hungry again to secure another contract. Not a bad thing for us. Unless Cleary pulls a rabbit out of the hat and signs Taupau or Merrin, there aren't many better options out there atm. Don't see the harm in offering him another year.

Sign him for 1 year like gnr said, as an impact prop hes perfect and the short deal will give him incentive to play out of his skin for a bigger contract

I like the idea of a 1 year deal. Keeps him hungry and if he finds the consistency I’m sure we would lock him in for longer after that.

There are too many players whose form slumps just after inking a contract. It will never happen but there should be a base contract and incentive payments ie: more for a win etc. but I know those days are long gone

We need guys like Sue, he is a fringe first grader for sure, he is not a plodder, however he is a player that wants to play for the Tigers. He keeps pressure on the forwards that are selected in first grade to play at there peak.

When do we start a poll on this guy?

In all seriousness, has had a real good month having found his calling as an impact prob off the bench

I mentioned in another thread, this guy has played 6 first grade quality games in his career at WT. 4 of those in the last month.

Why now?

He’s a bench prop and if he plays like this 1 year with a team option for another. If he leaves so be it. He defensively went nowhere near Papali on the line which is where he lets the team down.

The last 12 months havent been great, but he has something that very few of our forwards have (Drive, Line breaking ability). He has made two cold line breaks the last few weeks, where he has just gone through without the assistance of anyone.

I also disagree with people who say this is his only good month. For a few years there he was dynamic. And all things considered, which forwards can we honestly say have had a better season? Id go as far to say our rise in form in the last month has coincided with his return. Remember, hes hardly played 1s this year. When he has, hes been good.

He is our 3rd or so most valuable forward in my opinion.

Because he hasn’t been hampered by HIA’s?
