    Sounds like this might be simply a standard negotiating tactic as his old man (or whoever does his financials these days), tries to extract some more dollars in a contract extension. Can we next expect stories that the Broncos are chasing him to solve their play maker problems?

    From the SMH piece I linked above.....


    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the contract chatter has heated up at a time when Rugby Australia and O'Connor are engaging in talks about a new deal that would take the 55-cap utility back through to the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

    I hope JOC or his manager dont mention the word "brand" this time.

    I remember many years a ago someone saying a contact is not worth the money of the paper it’s printed on. I haven’t worked out the equivalent today. Is it not worth the electricity for the email? Not worth considering with some people?
    I was just starting to like JOC again but I’ve no time for people that just try to scam the game, if that’s what’s going on.
