yeah pretty sure one of the Raiders players mentioned 2 trials in one of their interviews recently.

Also I believe that the Samoan world cup fat camp was a lot more detrimental to start of year fitness than having 1 trial rather than 2.

Ferguson in hospital with an infection from a cut on his foot. I really think he is going to be a dud buy for them.

He had a sensational season at the Roosters this year but I can’t see the Eels getting the best out of him.

Depends on the players around him. When he was here he managed to keep it together even with the team crumbling around him. He was poor when he first left and took until 2018 to regain the form he showed here. Giving up the booze, if indeed that is actually true, seems to have helped him but eels is a basket case so anything could happen?

Fergo is very much like carney. You need someone to mother/father them.

At the raiders carney had shif but when he left and noone took up the " father" role things fell apart.

Earl was fergo's father role here then when he left Dugan took on the role of "manipulator" which created pineapple cruiser gate.

At the roosters they put one of their physios on the job
It was Louisa 's job to keep touching base, talking to him and checking he was going ok.
Louisa is now at the knights

Parra don't have the staff to do that nor senior players to take the role.

Junior will also go backwards without sia and papa

They've got a poor roster. They probably won't see the best of him but they are definitely going to benefit a great deal from his carries. They haven't had something close to a good returner since Radradra left.

Hoping Wighton does not get picked again for the Aboriginal All Stars so he can get a couple of trials under his belt playing 5/8

would've been handy for him to have been suspended for that one
