Time for a Keep Blake Austin thread yet ?

I may as well start !!!

@Magpie69,I have said numerous times this year,he has been one of our very best all season,how the hell they even consider getting rid of him is beyond me…

At this stage I’m more concerned for his well being

Just looking at him suggested things weren’t well

Even if you favour a Farah-Brooks-Moses-Teddy spine, why would you get rid of the only player who can cover those positions.

Do I have to remind anyone, that he received about 75 per cent of the votes from Forum members for the player-of-the-year? This player is a future NRL captain based on his efforts on the field and his exploits off the field.
He will be a great asset at whatever NRL team he ends up with in the future.

He’s contracted for another year. Potter wants him here. I think he’ll be staying.

Why so Happy?

He has been our best player this year, and is beginning to be 1 of my favourite players. He’s not the fastest He’s not the biggest,But He gives his all everytime he steps onto the field and for that I would signing him on a 2 year deal with 1 more year in our favour.

I’m not a Dr , but his knee seemed to be protruding out when he limped off

Could suggest a dislocated kneecap , which can result in ligaments being damaged

I’m no Dr , but his knee seemed to be protruding out badly when he came off

I doubt it was a dislocated kneecap. I’ve done it twice and its basically impossible to walk. Anyway its easily fixed - just bang it back in and you are good to go.

Ice was on his ankle after the game. Strange place if it was his kneecap.

Despite his ankle injury he looks pretty fine to me…
Is there something else going on?

He still has 1 year left with us , The Club controls him for next year as he is still contracted to us , but for 2016 and beyond he controls his destiny as i have said on another thread if he see’s himself as a number 6 and we can’t offer that ? he will be gone .
He is not going to hang around as a Utility , Adam Blair’s contract is up at the end of next year , we can maybe offer him the Number 13 jersey as his own , whether Austin see’s himself there will be up to him .
My gut feeling say’s he will be gone after next year.

If his defence is up to it, I think he has to play lock. We have enough size to carry a smaller forward, and I cant see them breaking up the Brookes/Moses combination, but he definately has to be in the team somewhere

Oh, thats ok then,he has a contract……really means nothing these days
