  1. He showed a lot of promise early in his career but seems to have some personal problems. If he plays again or not I hope he gets himself sorted for the good of his future life. I wish him all the best.

      • Just read that the reason that he was sacked was because he fake sold a number of jerseys to fans. Why? To pay for his wedding supposedly. Whether there’s any truth to his claim I don’t know. Obviously the man has got some personal issues but I haven’t read anywhere that he has problem with gambling or drinking.

  2. To think that opposition fans slammed Souths and blamed Madge.for him going.
    The facts are that Souths did release him early in 2016.

    Souths signed Crichton, upgraded Cam Murray and brought in Fuimaono.

    WHO would you prefer?

    • Yep Crichton definetely good, but Cameron Murray and fuimaono, your kidding, wouldn’t let them run drinks for our reserve grade

        • Like I said Crichton definetely good player, other 2 useless. That’s why rabbits are coming where??? Team of nobody’s and never will be’s
