No idea. But he hasn't signed anywhere else has he?
Souths, some time ago.

From my experience money does not become due until the 15th of each month.
Why would we pay any employee earlier than when his money is due?
Especially when this employee has allowed his manager to continually rubbish the players employer.

Unfortunately the train went off the rails the way the Club attempted to up-end a back-ended-contracted player. They made threats of reserve grade to assist in breaking a contract so they sort of have blood on their hands. When one goes down that tract you can half expect it won't be a pleasant finish. So now they have a SOO player playing reserve grade and I half expect their team to be "murdered" tomorrow arvo = this is the path they chose. It is unfair on Moses to be put under such pressure at his age.

Wasn't a threat to play reserve grade at all. It was a fact. Coach had the kahunas and did it. And right or wrong, I think a coach making a firm decision is good for our club. If nothing else, the younger players might not be influenced by the old culture. They might now realise we are getting the same culture as other clubs and businesses where the boss is the boss, so shut up and do your job or get out.

And whilst factually Robbie was a SOO hooker this year and was dropped, is that such a big deal? He might even have been NSW's best player, but thats no big deal either. Newsflash - They lost AGAIN. Some kid from the West Wyalong Logfloggers under 15's could have done as good a job as most of them NSW players in the last 10 years. Being the best out of a pile of rubbish isn't really something to hang your hat on.

I really do hope he moves on, and kicks on at another club for a few years because to be honest, I want to remember him as a good bloke and a great player, not remember him being a party to this garbage in the last year or two.

He pulled out of NSW Cup today with a virus, so he's not played for a month.

I'm talking about Benji ya twit! Didn't exactly leave our club on good terms, admitted he didn't really try much in his final season with us and was also quite prone to sooking when things didn't go his way, if I recall correctly.

Benji left on bad terms, but its healed over time imo. Its going to take a while for the scars to heal for a lot of supporters over how Farah is leaving cos its a whole lot uglier.
