Homesick.

Shame, top player, but clearly never settled.

Surprised it's taken them so long.Rumours have been around since he arrived.

Just read on the BEEB web site- another Aussie hardman finding it tough going in the Super League. Misses his Mum and Dad- ah bless!

Is it me or the Aussies becoming a bunch of soft prima donnas who only like it when the sun is out, they can run through unopposed and everything is going their way?

Maybe its a smokescreen and he just does not think Leeds is as nice as Sydney or Brisbane?
As attractive as Leeds and its folk are it must be a culture shock for a young man from the cosmopolitan east coast capitals of Australia.

Most likely - the fans want him back, and they've offloaded Luke Patten, so they can probably afford him.

Maybe.
He says he misses his family I noticed.
Do they live in New Zealand, Brisbane or Sydney?
If they have moved with him as he plied his trade maybe they should have spent some time in Leeds to settle him down.

The Homesick note is becoming the get out across the board it seems.
I can't be bothered listing the players that have played that card but it is becoming an Avalanche.

He's 23.

Regardless of whether his family live in Sydney, Brisbane or Auckland - its a 24 hour flight from here, not just a 2-3 hour flight that can be done over a weekend.


Plus, i used to work in Bankstown and ###### that it is, its still nicer than England.


We won't miss him, as we've hardly seen him.

he is fat and lazy he makes feka look like a race horse leeds are well rid.

I look around
I search the skies
I shade my eyes
So nearly blind
And I see signs of half remembered days
I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways
I recognise...
The hope you kindle in your eyes

Don't know about the lazy bit, when he has played he's normally been one of the standout players, he could do with shedding as few pounds though biggrin.gif

where does anybody say that Leeds have taken them up on the offer? just because an offer has been made, they're not obliged to accept it
