    He’s a freak. Sometimes you just wish he hogged the ball

    Defence 1st Grade Fringe

    Haha when u put it like that it must've been a pretty easy choice.
    How long is he actually contracted to rugby for?
    I was at the game and it was awesome- girls final was better tho.

    If I was a decent enough Union player particularly backs or loose forward(most transitional players imo) I’d give Union a stint try to clock up a few 7s games hopefully trophies, then a few super rugby games maybe a title, hopefully clock up some AB games and best case scenario a RWC.
    THEN around mid to late 20s switch to the NRL and try to do the same (better money new challenge) for around 5 years before heading off to France/Japan for a massive retirement pay check.
    I know it’s all perfect world and right place and time type things but I’m not sure why more players don’t do it. There’s a few ABs that have a super rugby title and a couple of RWC now- what else do they really have left to achieve? Why not give NRL a go?

    This kid seems like the ticket. Why wasnt he wrapped up in a contract by the warriors in his mid teens?

    Read the recent stories. He was signed at 15 by the Warriors but opted out and had legal standing to do so.

    I’m suprised it was never mentioned in this thread.
