Failed careers



  • Just lurking some old threads and found one on Blake Lazarus.
    He played 2 games and we released him.
    Never played first grade again, had a stint with Newtown Jets and some France team, was even offering his services up for free.

    Jacob Miller is def another failure.
    Plays for…… no team.

    There’s a bunch at other clubs through the years, throw some names up.
    Let’s discuss.

    UPDATE: Todd Carney, litterally p***ed his career away so it would be also considered a failure.



  • Demps I wouldn’t call playing 2 games or so a “career”.

  • I wish I managed to play 2 NRL games

    It mightn’t have been a career but it was a goal reached or achieved for the players mentioned

    Your in elite company making it to the NRL



  • Jake Mullaney



  • Bronson Harrison. I know he’s had a decent first grade career, but he was being groomed to be something really good, but he’s never been anything more than an average first grader

    BMM is definitely worthy of a mention also.

    If we’re talking about other teams, what about Tim Smith. He was being called the next Peter Sterling and was never anything more than a one yr wonder.



  • Sheens ruined Bronson. Tried to turn him into a front rower when he was way too small, at a delicate stage in his career too

  • I think Jacob miller could be even better than brooks. From what I saw of him, he was as tough as nails, good short passing game and pin pout long kicking game. Granted I only saw a few games of his + first grade, I think he showed me more in that time than brooks all season. But he’s a couple years older than him so well see where brooks is in 2 years.

    Hope killer miller comes back

    Most ridiculous post in the history of this forum…. probably any forum.



  • I didn’t know Jacob Millers mum posted on here!

    :roll

    Jake Mullaney comes to mind.

    Dane Laurie also springs to mind. :mrgreen:

    Shannon Gallant - good ol’ Mighty Mouse - although he put his heart into every game - loved his effort.

    Mark Flanagan also.

    Kinda rambling here, but names keep springing to mind.



  • Mark Flanagan was really underrated. I’d go as far as to say one of the most underrated players to ever wear a WT’s jersey.

    Oh yeah, also Arona…… ermmm… uh, can’t remember his last name - played for penrith, and us, then got done for stealing a perscription pad from his doctor…
