I wouldn’t read into CG’s comments to much i think he’s just trying to keep it in house and down play the situation that’s his job
Far from sweeping it under the carpet, he’s not going to come out and heap more pain on the player and pour gasoline on the fire , he’s doing the job he’s paid to do and keep the clubs matters / players personal lives private.You mean sweep it under the carpet like it doesnt exist?
Cant trust anything this guy says!!
Mental health isnt something to ignore.
Explains his drop in form.
Wish David a speedy recovery if true.

Yup was pretty clear there was something else going on after there was photos in the captains run of him leaping two metres in the air catching bombs. Can’t do that with an ongoing hamstring issue.I wouldn’t read into CG’s comments to much i think he’s just trying to keep it in house and down play the situation that’s his job
A lot of people experiencing personal problems be it personal/family related or mental health related find it really hard for it to be made public especially in the Polynesian community. Let the man decide when or if he's ready to let the public know.quite the opposite I would have thought.
no one in their right minds would kick a person when they are down.
I would instead expect an overwhelming response of support and understanding for his situation.
Also add on the stress of being away from a young family (not everyone can handle being separated the same as others) and the pressure of knowing you have to stay due to not wanting to lose your contract to provide for your family. I'd be happy for him to come home on a reduced contract for the year and resume next year once they're all back home.Feel for Fus, Definitely is a tough job being an NRL player. Your body gets destroyed everyday. Fulltime recovery, then you have to deal with fans and media who don't give two shits about players wellbeing. Add an injury and Covid to that and its a full shit storm. Money doesn't buy you happiness. Hes a real family man so i hope he gets all the help he needs for himself and his family's sake. Playing through all this would have just made everything worse so better for him to walk away from it all until hes ready.
Keep in contact with him, bring another winger in and bring him back next year or when he feels he is ready to be all in again. He hasn't been right for a while now. When he is on, he is one of the best wingers there is but he doesn't deserve the torture of playing at 70% dedication. Good on the club for protecting him and pulling him out of the last few games. Wish him all the best.
