    The More Things Change.....

    So the cash strapped RA have gazumped South Sydney and signed a 16yo boy to a 3 year $3 million deal. He's reportedly a freak player. Anyone care to guess which SR franchise he'll debut for when he turns 17 shortly??

    Imagine paying $1 million a year for an unproven teenager.

    Never change RA.

    Why bother guessing Shasta, it says 'Waratahs' in the article.

    In RA's defence, he hasn't been signed yet and their reports are that the $$$ figures are wrong. But I'll probably be eating humble pie soon...

    Well I suppose that depends on which article you mean. I didn't link one. The one I saw Wide World of Sport says he's signed. We shall see.

    Meanwhile in other news, The Toronto Wolfpack have allowed all their Oz & Kiwi players to sign short term deals for the rest of 2020. Should the boss talk to SBW? Fits the Dads Army criteria.

    So, GIGS; are you saying you think SBW is a dickhead?

    Did he not skip out of a rugby league contract to play rugby?

    Yes, my team. But there were reasons, and fault on both sides that didn't appear in the media. IMO, since those days - he was still a kid, really - he's become a genuine role model.

    He would be a deadset role model for the younger guys..Definitely not a dickhead..He's 35 now but super fit.

    If the Force recruit anymore players this year or even next year, I think we should concentrate on Aussies from overseas and preferably Western Australians or ex-Force players.
    Eg Curtis Rona or Adam Coleman
