    I can see him leaving to a consistent top 8 team if we dont make the 8 next year, despite us offering more. He is too good of a player to be playing in a team that just there to make the numbers.

    His next contract would be less about money, and more about being a competitive team.

    It seems an age ago now but this was the guy who reinvented the attacking role of a fullback.
    His running meters were incredible back then. Mind you it helps when you got some quality players

    His running metres have been pretty amazing this year too, i think he has lost a lot of spark and pace with that Acl, same as Johnson after the break, he has lost a tonne of pace

    The difference been in his Rooster days that his running meters actually translated into wins. Where is with the Warriors it's been fuck all

    He looked slower and less decisive even before he blew up his knee last year.

    Its just the warriors plodders bringing good players down, putting too much on a handful of players because over half the team are dead average and aren’t coached well enough to bring them up.

    I’m sure roger will be pleased to be getting some hard workers like Blair and Harris into the mix.

    If we are halfway decent I think he will stay. If we are full blown shithouse then he had has to be thinking get out before it’s too late.

    Union is the tricky part, he’d be a dynamite winger, but he wouldn’t get the same money, at least initially. If you already have Reiko Ioane, Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, Damian Mckenzie, Jordie Barrett, Milner-Skudder, Waisake Naholo and Julian Savea how much do you want to assign to a league convert? They have to be careful with their cash in the face of overseas clubs, can’t really guarantee him all black time like they did with SBW as he was a bigger name, and they saw him as an important midfield alternate to Smith and Nonu.

    What NRL team would he go to? Tigers to replace Lolohea at the back would be one to watch out for. All the kiwi guys will say good things about Ivan and he’s used to being in Sydney obviously.

    He's not really fast enough to be a union winger. He would have to move in feild or more than likely be a fullback.
    He would be very very lucky to get a shot at the all black fullback spot. He would need to work on defence and kicking.
