    Gallen has retired from rep footy and I can see us not picking Fifita next year with the emergence of Jtrbo, Merrin hitting top form, Carty and co.
    I like fifita as a player, hes great and a genuine match winner. But fuck me dead, stop doing stupid shit mate.

    Pretty harsh given the frivolous 'indiscretions' he is being hammered for of late.

    In saying that, as a QLDer I hope like hell that you blokes fuck up and omit Fifita.....

    QLD mafia kept Fifita out of the Australian side. The bloke that had he's sexual assault disappear and his grub neck breaking mate complained to the bloke who houses killers on parole that Fifita was a bad influence.

    That's rich.

    Dont get me wrong, I like him as a player and hope they pick him. I can just see them being told to leave him out.

    Yeah I read that too about Smith and Cronk not wanting him in the side.
    As I said, its ridiculous.
    A bloke who has sexually assaulted a woman
    A bloke who is just a pisshead goose
    A few blokes who got caught having a gangbang in a public bathroom
    A bloke in the extended squad who was caught abusing prescription drugs

    etc etc etc

    you cant pick and choose

    on a side note, do the new eligibility rules mean semi can play origin?

    Souths recruitment strategy seems to be going along the same lines as Newies... Up the proverbial creek without a paddle.

    Don't forget Ferguson mate.
    Shit, have you seen the footage? Straight up no idea how that mongrel isn't in jail for 10 years.
    This really is not a QLD vs NSW thing but if you wanna fuel that, all the better for NZ.

    Also where is "He's and his grammar nazi" when you need him.

    Did anyone see the Paul Whatuira documentary in NZ this week? Would've loved to catch it but... I live in Aus.

    Fergo doesn't deserve to represent his country. But apparently the QLDers don't mind him, so he gets a run.

    Agree completely.

    I wonder if its to do with the influence on the younger players.
    Fergo may not be in the ear of the young guys and acting like a f**kwit behind closed doors yet I imagine Fifita is pretty much what you see is what you get. Complete sub-human.

    I would kind of understand if that's there reasoning but they need to be more transparent about it if so.

    "We are trying to create a culture... " ... "We don't believe Andrew fits that culture at the moment... " ... "We've had conversations on what we'd like to see change and he's in the mix for sure if he can show us that he wants to make the changes and play for his country... "

    Something along those lines.

    "Guys a caaaarnt, fuck him off to Catalans already" would also be acceptable.

    What's this culture thing? Is it your culture or mine?

    "But how do I change being about the best FRF all season??" says a bloke.

    This isn't Sportal now, NW. You need to relax with the conspiracies.

    No way he should be getting a contract without spending some serious time getting his shit together.

    Not interested in having the guy in the NRL but playing devil's advocate...

    Russell Packer came out of jail and went straight to playing for the cutters. Spent a year there to prove himself worthy of re-inclusion.
    They set a precedent. Lodge didn't even go to jail.

    Blake Ferguson should've gone to jail. He had a year off NRL before he could play again, didn't he?

    And the same will apply for Matt Lodge. He has signed with Redcliffe Dolphins and the NRL are expected to not approve an NRL contract till 2018

    So he can spend a year on the sidelines as well. Of the 3 mentioned I'd rather have Packer playing than the other 2, at least he's received and hopefully learned from his punishment.

    Raiders have confirmed Dave Taylor will train with the squad in the pre-season.  It's a long way from the ocean, might have to put his boat in storage.
