I remember a few seasons back Marshall saying that he won’t retire before Farah. Also Robbie saying a few weeks ago that his retirement will probably coincide with Benji’s.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

We need Farah. If you have a better idea I'd love to hear it.

Thought as much when there was no announcement made prior to team selection this week. A little surprised by Benji, but not so much with Farah.
I will be really annoyed if Ivan moves on now. If he believes these guys have another good year in them I expect him to stay around to justify it.
Great players for our club but the risks are obvious.

Good move by the club. Even at Robbie's age, he is STILL one of the best hookers in the comp

The best part of the release is from Ivan Cleary "I look forward to working with them both again in 2019"

Probably knew if he didn't say it the hordes would descend upon him again.

I dont see this as improvement, or moving forward.

It still sounds better than "I intend to honour my contract" from a few weeks ago.

Maybe Cleary is working on his escape strategy and thinks Robbie in ISP will help get him punted.

Robbie already said that playing for norths had him ready to retire. It will be interesting to see his commitment if not in first grade

At least I'll save money not betting on top 4 / top 8 markets next year.

Yesterday's hero's just won't go away.

I would rather he retired to be honest but if it means he plays ISP next season i can live with it.Hopefully the contract reflects his position as no 2 hooker
Don't think so - he would expect to play 19 games to reach 300 unfortunately.
Why unfortunately?
If he is good enough he should play 300 games.

True, he's probably sick of people drawing conclusions from what hasn't been said rather than what has.

Anyway you're right in that it is pleasing to hear him say it.

Great another year with the 2 oldie who never have learned since the 2011 semi choke to warriors, another 16 point lead every game with a heart attack finish year and mentally not beating rubbish teams.

They won the 2005 premiership on my 28th birthday.
I'm 42 this October.
Unbelievable that they are still here. We are the retirement village club.
