I wouldn’t want him either. Bu it’s a little strange isn’t it… one of the weakest teams lose one of their best forwards… and he ends up with the Roosters. The cap system is broken.

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

The line up shows that the brains trust is again being too slow to identify when players are well below form, and that opportunity should really be provided to others.
