    • I do pedro, i reckon he will be good for Saints, my opinion, Saints will be in this 2019 prem up to their eyeballs and Norman will be right up there , his signing will prove to be the best player saints have got for a long time.

      Also I hope someone finds out who is leaking these video’s, this Napa Norman thing was from years ago, sure they should have not done it , but it was a long time ago and they have grown up since then, to me it’s not fair, It appears someone out there is trying to bring the NRL down.

    • Hypocritical???? The matter was dealt with in 2016 by Parra and the NRL. Nil issue here.

      In regards to JDB, 2 sides to every story. If he is guilty he WILL go to gaol where he deserves to be, but let’s wait and see the full facts first b4 hanging the bloke. Just cause he plays for my club gives him zero leverage in my eyes
