    I think this is great news for Ollie, takes some of the pressure off him being the only openside in the club and there's heaps for Carlo to teach him.Awesome news

    Great to hear about ISI being signed with the Force on 6IX news. It’s something in the media.

    They recruited another fan/entire audience when she left.

    Not an announcement but speculation on G&GR that Waqa Blake from the eels may be coming to the Force.

    Channel 9 posted the same speculation yesterday, not sure whether it's actual journalism or rewriting the same shit that was on social media.It seemed entirely speculative with zero quotes from either Blake or the force

    His contract is up. His manager will be looking for the best deal and use the Force speculation as a lever.

    The suggestion is that his children live in Perth and he wants to be close to them. If that's the case then it sounds reasonable.

    Blake is a top flight RL right centre and sometimes winger. He is big, strong, VERY fast and a good defender. He started RL at a young age in Sydney then played for Joondalup in the WARL and progressed to the SG Ball team (U 19); from there to Penriff Panfers. Apparently played some Rugby for Wanneroo - how much & how long for I don't know. So I see him as a similar profile to Curtis Rona when he came across except Blake is 28; Rona was 25. Either way, the initial reports a month or so back said his management approached RA - the back story is that he's being squeezed out to make salary cap room to keep Mitchell Moses.

    My view is that if he was to come on similar money to what he could get in the NRL or UK Superleague the bosses would need to see RA chip in the biggest cut because he should be assessed purely as a Leaguey. After being a long time starter; he has not started 1st grade since reports of his approach to RA made the media. Whether he's injured, I don't know. He'd need to be low cost to us - how would that go with Rugby players already pissed at the money being thrown at Suaali'i?
