Blessing in disguise for Newcastle though IMO.
700k a year saved for his 5 games.
Might mean we bring Ponga a year earlier now, or we can bring in a good prop. Not that there are any left on the market at this stage of the off season.
Not sure of what other 6's are on the market at the moment, I hope we dont do something silly and bring a bloke like jamie soward in as a stop gap.
