I really wish he wasn't going for all the reasons others have already articulated.
One thing I do wonder though is that as well as the immediate pay packet (which may not be that much more than at Souths) being a (potential) dual code international gives him more chance of career longevity in the sport beyond his playing days i.e. there are a limited number of coaching and media jobs in RL but many many more if you have expertise in league and union.
It would be revolutionary if they bolted a basketball hoop onto the front of the cross bar and you got 3 points for chucking the ball through it (or a thousand for drop goaling it through). But it isn't a good idea.
I was standing next to him at the bar at the West Riding Refreshment Rooms in Dewsbury on Friday (at least it looked a lot like him) and he was talking about retirement - whether his own or someone else's I couldn't say.
A man who may or may not have been Stevo was talking about his or someone else's retirement...
