    Ivan Cleary sorted him out at the Warriors, my way or the highway, which seemed to wake him up for a while. I guess Leopards never change their spots.

    Cleary got rid of him when he was in the under 20s. Didn't like his attitude.

    I've seen him play at least half of those 9 NRL games and the reason they are so few is he drops the ball in contact.

    He drops the ball when trying to catch it.

    The ball hates him.....if there is a chance of a freakishly unlucky error it happens to him.

    Otherwise he's good during the other bits of the game where his team aren't defending a turnover.

    Well in the WC against NZ he made more metres in his 50 min stint than any NZ player. I like him. Hes a good decent guy. But i doubt he will leave Sydney.

    I was going to ask about comparisons .
    But I wonder how fus would have gone at the storm?
    Or GI at the warriors?
    Coach Bellamy vs Elliot ,Cappy
    Surely we could have turned GI into some mediocre winger

    Haha fair call.
    Well he did go to souths who had been a running joke for a lot longer than us and won a premiership there....
    Don't get me wrong, fus is a gun player and finally realizing his potential. I remember seeing him in a trial on the Gold Coast 5 years ago now and going wow this kid has the goods- he'll cement a spot in first grade by the end of the year. He's only just done that now.
    Inglis on the other hand is probably the most gifted player I've ever seen- just a freak- he's a big match player too- has the record for most origin try's and is only a couple off lockyers kangaroo record.
    Fus is good but you're setting the bar pretty high comparing him to inglis tbh.

    I think you may be looking at Fus through some “warriors tinted glasses”

    Lesson Ah Mau off contract after this season. Lastly game vs Broncos played 39mins ran for 168 meters.

    Warriors must be interested.

    Off contract players. Really only Mannering and Luke are the guys who could potentially free up cash for a mid range NRL like Ah Mau. I'm not expecting many signings this season, maybe some fringe guys.

    Played well again last night, running over 100m once again.

    There was one run in particular where he bumped somebody off and then fended/swatted away about another four.
    Obviously a lot of strength there.
