He's finished as a footballer. He should hang the boots up at seasons end he's got no more to achieve and he's risking making himself look silly by going around for one year too many.

He's starting to regress as badly as Marshall.

I think his regression started when Simona smashed him.
when we played Souths at the beginning of last year (may have been the year before)
I'm putting in down to that point ....is that too one-eyed?

Lol maybe. Could also be the premiership Souths won in 2014. Could have seen it as the final piece in the puzzle of his career after winning 10 Origin series. Probably feels like he has nothing left to achieve. Which he doesn't.

Everyone's a psychologist aren't they?. Most, if not all NRL players are carrying some damage, and their fitness is as much about managing all the niggles as anything else. If a bloke looks a bit slower one week to the next, it's rarely cos he could't be bothered. Not at this level.

I'm not the Rabbitohs psychologist, or their physio so I don't know what GI's deal is. He used to be the complete athlete, able to run over the top of blokes like a backrower, but equally capable of outrunning the opposition's whole backline. Now GI's slow and busted and seems (to me at least) unsure of his role. The new Braith Anasta.

I don't doubt his commitment. I watched him limp through last year's finals like the Monty Python's Black Knight, and I believe he's determined to do a job for his team. Call Madge Mcguire if you figure out what that job might be.

Watching Moses take the outside line and Beat GI for speed felt like a changing of the guard.

A similat theead appeared after tje last time we beat them. He looks tired. Origin period taking its toll. As much as Taylor has copped crap for resting Robbie during origin, I appload the decision to make hard decisioms for the team.

Admittedly, GI has looked tired the whole year. He will be at broncs next year for sure os my guess.

What else has he to achieve? He's won three premierships with two clubs (legitimacy notwithstanding,) a raft of Origin series and Test series. He's achieved everything there is to achieve in the game. There would be little for him to strive for now unless he wanted to go to another club and look for a third club to win a premiership with.
