The Future is League

SBW says his NRL premierships mean more than union world cup wins

Recommended Posts

Harder to win is debatable. You get to have a crack at an NRL premiership every year. Also I’d say he was more instrumental in winning NRL premierships for his teams than he was winning the World Cup for NZ, where he came off the bench in both occasions. Add to that he grew up playing rugby league so you can see why he holds this opinion

Man moving from Rugby Union to Rugby League talks up Rugby League shock.

For that type of money it is the minimum we should expect.

A bit like when Gazza joined Everton and when asked what his career highlight so far was said ‘signing for Everton’.

Harder to win and it's what he grew up wanting to do. Makes sense. If he was able to win a league world cup with NZ or, dare I say it, Samoa, I wonder where that'd rank?

Of course it was.......  In 2010 on signing for NZRU he said: "I'm coming home to pursue my childhood dream and work towards an All Blacks Jersey."

lets judge him on what he will be getting paid (handsomely)  to do on the pitch in the next 2 years  not for his words about the past.


the grass may be greener on the other side of the fence but the crows are just as black

Yep... you are probably right.  he is a clued up guy.

That or a wife-beating alky anyway.  It is definitely one of the two.

But yeah... you are probably right.

Its odd that you seem to think the two are mutually exclusive. One thing for certain though is that SBW was an out and out Leaguie growing up.
