A 12 year, 231 game career.
3 Origin games.
Thats a hell of a career.
Much maligned throughout his career - I never liked him as a player but I like his off field personality. He calls things how he sees them and is quite entertaining on the radio etc. I felt he got better as a player as he got older.
I would have thought, that at only 32 (33 next season) NRL he would still have a fair bit in the tank left to offer an NRL club.
IMO he would be amazing in a side like the Storm where his role is reduced a fair bit. Maybe that back injury has ruined him.
I thought that sides that are pretty thin on halves like the Eels, Melbourne, Souths, even the Dragons would offer him a role as a backup 6 or 7, or even a starter. Or thought he would change teams in the superleague.
He will prob be remembered more as the bloke with the decent boot who was greg Inglis' speed bump once, instead of a bloke who played nearly 250 FG games.
