I doubt we will pick up the Fox if AD winds up here. If Madge somehow manages to pull that off he should be canonised.

21 gun salute for madge

I reckon the more likely celebration would be the blue wiggle playing the bagpipes…

I’ve always had a soft spot for ET. Hope he’s in the 17.

Same
The year he rocked up halfway through he was awesome
Defence machine.at the time he was a good ball player too

I put him in the same category as CT…not the most skillful but has one of the biggest hearts…

Does anyone have access to the link?

Shane Richardson has strongly defended Wayne Bennett’s treatment of Adam Doueihi in the wake of Latrell Mitchell’s arrival at South Sydney, declaring it’s better for a coach to be honest with a player than “bullshit” to him.

Richardson also issued a no-nonsense warning to Wests Tigers that Doueihi won’t be released unless the Tigers are prepared to pay a fair price to accommodate the transfer.

And while the Souths football boss also revealed the chances of Jai Arrow joining the Bunnies in 2020 was becoming less likely, Richardson said Doueihi’s predicament in no way hinged on Arrow’s immediate future.

Bennett has come under fire for telling Doueihi straight up that it would be in his best interests to leave if he wanted to cement an NRL starting spot because Mitchell would now get first crack at fullback.

This has even led to some speculation that it also caused a rift between Richardson and Bennett behind closed doors.

But Richardson explained he thinks the way Bennett handled a very difficult situation was honourable: “We always knew when we did the Latrell deal that there would be players concerned about their positions.

“And Wayne has had to deal with that and he has dealt with it, I think, in a very, very fair way and an honest way, and that doesn’t happen very often in rugby league.

“I have been with coaches over a long period of time where they have just continued to tell bullshit to players.

“Wayne doesn’t do that. He tells them the truth upfront which I think is the best way to handle it.”

But Richardson also said at no stage did Bennett tell Doueihi he had to leave.

“What he said was that it was going to be hard for him to make the starting side,” Richardson said.

“For a kid that has been in the starting side for the last couple of years that is a hard call to make. But that doesn’t mean he can’t force his way in the side. Wayne has never said that to him at all.

“He is a really good kid and we have to take his feelings into consideration and everything else but at the end of the day we are just not going to give him away.”

It is understood Doueihi is on $550,000 at Souths this year but the Tigers are apparently baulking at paying him $375,000 to make the deal happen.

Richardson defended Souths’ stance: “We put him on the money that we have got him on because we think he is going to be a really good player.

“So releasing him is a big call for us. It is not an easy call at all.

“Also, we never approached anybody to release him. They approached us.

“We didn’t put him on the market. They came to us, even before Wayne spoke to him about it.

“We are in a situation where he is a great kid who we have brought through the ranks and it is very difficult for us to let him go and if we don’t have to let him go we won’t.”

Richardson also revealed that it was becoming less likely Arrow would be playing at Souths in 2020 because at this point Gold Coast was just not budging.

“I can certainly understand why, he is a great kid,” Richardson said. “We have to respect the Gold Coast’s position.

“Mal (Meninga) has said he doesn’t think he is going to let him go, he has told me that a couple of times.

“We have been in contact weekly and I don’t want to be hassling him. And (Arrow) is not agitating. He is not that sort of kid.

“It is a decision for them to make. We will just have to sit here and wait and respect their decision-making process.”

But regardless Richardson reckons the Bunnies have a pack that is strong enough to stand toe-to-toe with the other heavyweight contenders.

“We are not exactly devoid of middles. Arrow would be the cream on the cake for us but he is not the cake,” Richardson said.

“Cam Murray is one of the best in the world. Thomas Burgess is one of the best props in the world. Junior Tatola has come along in leaps and bounds. Liam Knight is a player who some people are starting to talk about (potentially) in State of Origin, Mark Nicholls has done the job, Tom Amone is coming through and Kurt Dillon.

“I know it sounds like I am talking it up but I really believe that.” - Via Crawley (DT)

Well keep him then and figure your cap out Richardson you dud…

Of all the clubs, I don’t mind Canberra. Almost feel sorry for them. Release Leilua, we finalise the contract, their replacement gets arrested. I’m glad we got Leilua but I’d prefer this kick in the guts to happen to a team like Rorters or eels or Penrith.

I like Canberra , but never feel sorry for another team … NEVER 👊🏻

1989 - never forget

I’d forget about that 😡

I haven’t…it haunts me…

It’s a sad state of affairs…think of all the interest they’ll be making on that money as well!!!

Just goes to show that not all charities have the people who needs it best interests at heart…

Sorry to hear about this…gets you thinking about who you donate to…

I’ll never donate to the Salvos because they deliver christmas packs to every single inmate at christmas time…some of you might go what’s the big deal, but people donate to the Salvos to help those in need, not those locked up…

I’m prepared to get flamed for my opinion…

I didn’t know that…

Yeah it’s not a well known fact…some locations get christmas puddings delivered

But who gonna make the gravy
I bet it won’t taste the same
Just add flour, salt, a little red wine
And don’t forget a dollop of tomato sauce for sweetness and that extra tang

Give my love to Angus, Frank and Dolly…

Haha

Love it
My all time fav xmas song

Agreed, it is amazing!

It’s a shame that people don’t make music like this anymore…

My fav xmas song is the Fairytale of New York by the Pogues…absolut belter of a song

The show Gavin and Stacey used it for their Christmas Special this year and of course there was faux outrage over it!

Why was there Faux outrage??? Problems with some of the lyrics?

They used the original Lyrics!

Oh Dear the outrage!!!

I guess it’s why Money for Nothing isn’t played on a lot of radio stations in it’s original format

Exactly! The interesting thing is the person that line references in Money for Nothing didn’t have a problem with it. Mark Knopfler even performed it at his birthday party!

people just love faux outrage…

Spose Knopfler has made a fortune off that song so who’s laughing now??

Sorry to take this thread of topic, as I think this is an important topic and really believe we should all hit up TT’s joint and try and support him!

But I do have to mention while discussing this side topic that on google for both the songs Fairytale of New York and Money For Nothing they do not contain the original lyrics to the song and they have been changed!

I agree…but make sure if we do this, we let them know so they have enough there to feed everyone…

And now I’m faux outraged that these lyrics have been erased from the internet…if Prince didn’t care about being called a big pile of sticks then why should anybody else??
