Good player and can play fullback. I’m not sure if that’s the best way to spend our money long term. He hasn’t played league for a long time and is towards the end of his career.
He be a good injection if it’s was a short term deal but I’d think he’d be wanting 3-4 years. Loti was out of the Wallabies and playing O/S when we picked him up.
It would be a gamble with Izzy because he’d be asking about 5 times than what Loti was on and the religious/political stuff he has been taking about my effect the team.
He’s made a rod for his own back in both games it seems.
Unfortunately, he will likely have his career ruined because he doesn’t subscribe to the politically correct opinion.
The Tigers would need to ask themselves:
1. Regardless of personal opinion on his comments, do we really want that sort of media heat? Would that become disruptive to our guys?
2. Having been out of the game for so long, will he produce the results you’d expect from a million dollar player? Or will he be another Hayne?
3. Does it put a superstar in the team that will then upset the balance of the culture/playing group we have now?
He would be a good pickup for us and would probably add that X-Factor.
Then again…we aren’t really in need of an X-Factor…we are winning as it is.
Would add massive value. He cops flak because he answers baited questions with his honest opinion. He doesnt call for any one to be beheaded or personally hates on any one. Its a brave position to take in todays world. especially for some one with any sort of public profile.
