Can’t speak for TPJ or Vaughan but I know Barnett had a decent dust-up with a player not long before he left. Not sure how serious it was or if it factored into the decision to let him go but I reckon there’s a few things that influence retention that we don’t know about.
I heard about Barnett and his firey nature off the field. So it may have been part of calculations.

Vaughan had his off field stuff too. Nothing too serious, but against coach and club wishes

Barnett stamped his papers when he tried to get out of his deal and go to the Titans.

Why do people actually think TPJ is coming back here when it’s common knowledge that we have hardly any money left in the cap !!!

He'd be a huge signing for us. I hope there is more than a bit of smoke to this one.

When I saw Paulo last weekend I could not believe how fat he is.
Paulo has a foot injury that's really restricted him

I don't think he's that great, going well but who says he develops like this here? we haven't developed a half since Carney and campo. Maybe the dogs 20s staff deserve the credit

Yep. He was barely average when our choice was him or the current Australian halfback. I know you have a very different opinion to mine. We made the correct decision at the time with the information we had available.
In hindsight we'd make the opposite decision.

Also, let's wait until he's played more than eight games before we make a judgement.

I think that was the following year. He debuted in 2011 while Orford was injured and had that Bunnies game in 2012 after Orford had passed away. But, yeah, he was awesome that day.

That Bunnies game, my memory is we were never in it at all. Not really a great game to hang someone’s hat on.

I was in Port Macquaire. I had missed my flight earlier that day, and as such missed my friends wedding. I should add, half the congregation missed the flight, because it was foggy in Canberra. He was the reason we were even vaguely in it.

We got professionally handled in that game. From minute one it was clear who was going to win that game and there was little if anything we could do to stop it.
We lost 38-16, and the scoreline flattered us. We had no business being on the same park as that team
How the **** does anyone claim Sam Williams almost won us that game? :lol:

It's true no one was going to beat the Bunnies and their leg up from the Refs that year. Still it was 26-16 early in the second half and we had the momentum and Williams was entirely responsible for it. Williams was also the standout man of the match in the Sharks final which we won easily the week before.

He really did look like a star at that point.

The penalties in that game ended up a paltry 4-4.
The Rabbitohs got absolute **** belted off the park 32-8 by the Bulldogs the next week. They lost to the Storm 14-4 in the GF

We were never in the game, granted Sam Williams WAS our best on the park, but please... Souths never looked troubled. They handled us with ease. Sam Williams certainly never went CLOSE to winning us that game. Least of all single handedly.

Oops, was thinking of 2014 and their leg up.

I am not saying he nearly won us the game, but he was absolutely outstanding in both those finals games and he was the one player that kept us in the Souths game longer than we deserved. Whether we won or lost, it doesn't change the quality of his individual performances in that game or that final series.

We allowed them to get a 14 point lead, then Sammy kept us in it for the next 50mins, before a penalty try 'broke our backs', and hopes. I remember Sammy being electric that day, and everyone else around him playing like spuds. TBH, I remember the score being closer too - green googles :lol:

Scoring went:
Reynolds 8th min try, converted, 6-0
Pen goal 19th min, 8-0
Everingham 23rd min try, converted, 14-0
Sammy 29th min try, converted, 14-6
Surgess 37th min try, converted, 20-6
Earl 32nd min try, not converted, 20-10
Farrell 44th min try, converted, 26-10
Ferguson 53rd min try, converted, 26-16
Pen goal 61st min, 28-16
GI penalty try 64th min, converted, 34-16
Everingham 68th min try, not converted, 38-16

I was at the game and my recollection is in line with pigman. That the scores were within 10 at one point flattered us. They were completely in control, I never felt we had a chance.
