Well isn’t that a much better and more positive response from IP. Exactly what we were calling for.“I can understand why some people weren't happy, but the people who needed to know at the Tigers knew what my plans were,” Papali'i told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“I've been in contact with (Sheens) throughout the year. I didn't want my individual talks to worry the (Eels) group given the opportunity we had.
“I'm looking forward to the challenge in 2023 and the three years I've got at the Tigers. I'm all in. I'll be putting as much effort in there as I did at this club, that's a promise.”
Well that makes sense, but what doesn’t is the bluster from the board indicating an alternative sit out?
Is the board now only given information they need to know?
As far as the sit out, sounds a little like a media beat up to me, especially given what has been said by IP that Sheens knew the circumstances.
Welcome Isiah and we wish you every success in the future.
