Well they've really fallen out this time - Soward and coach Steve Price - that's official.
They had a bit of a do last season, but this time it appears to signal the parting of the ways.
How much in contrast this with the handling of other off form players by coaches of some other teams.
Still Price doesn't seem happy with Jamie's behaviour either.
So rather than be consigned to the rest of his Red V days with their feeder club, Soward has signalled his availability for a spell at a SL club to see out the season before joining Panthers in 2014.
Is there a SL club that can take him or want him?
The timing isn't good.
It can take weeks to get a work permit sorted out.
