Interesting that the money was similar. Hard to imagine him getting any more game time in that Eels side with Matterson, Lane and Brown all definitely ahead of him and possibly even Niukore.He was told by the club that they planned to develop Katoa and Murchie ahead of him. Would likely only get bench time. Wanted to test himself in Australia and try a different system.
Personally saw him as a defensive lock but with the above mentioned players plus Tohu Harris and Tevaga covering the whole backrow he decided to move on.
Was given an offer from the club and while it wasn't bad he is interested in game time. This is a kid who was playing 80 minutes at age 20.
Wish him all the best. We haven't seen the last of him I feel...
Sucks that he doesn't want to commit to that defensive lock position, he could be a game changer there.
