haha come on mate, penrith isnt that bad... haha but i agree, definitely the shire is the more appealing place... but his family all live in the west dont they?

tbh its probably all just media hype to get comments and stories etc.

It would be a money thing it isn't that far to drive not as if its bloody Brisbane maybe he has been told to prove himself if he wants to stay on a certain $$ value

Don't see the "go home factor" as being relevant when we're talking about going from one Sydney club to another.

Edit: Beat me to it Willy.

Yeah it's only really a factor when for example Ben Ross lived in Cronulla and then was choosing between us and Penrith.

Like, he saved himself a big drive.

If Graham was still living in Penrith and driving to training every day then that would factor in for sure.

But if he's living in Cronulla moving to Penrith would involve moving house and club, a bit of an annoyance that plays in our favour.

if going back home isnt a factor then i dont see why he will go back to penrith, he has a chance to prove himself at cronulla and test himself against the NSW captain and NZ test player in the backrow and really compete and learn. silly move if he leaves.

as i said before i really dont think he will go, its probably media trying to sell a story and phill gould thinks he owns rugby league and when he wants something he gets it... eat a dick gould

Hope you're right Scott. Money talks louder to some people than others though. I don't know Wade so no idea if a bit of extra cash would persuade him over playing in a better team.

I'd bet my house on him staying. In fact I know he is staying. Announcement in next 48 hours.

Gould's public comments re Graham smacks of someone trying to incite a public price war, prolly knows damn well he has little chance of getting Wade , just wants to see us pay overs for him! Potentially limiting our capacity to approach other big names like ...Jennings...

Id rather Gordon as well. But Graham is an amazing young Talent with Origin written all over him.

But if it happens then maybe we will see Peachey in first grade a lot sooner then expected
fmd , jig thats the first decent thing you have said about the kid in 2 seasons...getting worried are we

TBH if I was a player under gus I would be looking over my shoulder that's for sure if he doesn't get his own way look out!

He makes an announcement before the player even gets to tell his team mates for his own ego.
Jennings is sent to Leavenworth but is still good enough to play SOO.
Then he starts talking about poaching players but they aren't willing to pay market value.

Gus smells as a club admin and isn't a person I would like to work for and that's just on the above not taking into account his history.

Don't forget turning up at the joint and immediately crying about how highly everyone is paid.

Wonder what the senior players thought of that.

Wonder what the players on low money thought of it too, wondering if the guy next to him is on 500k etc.

Stupid stupid man.

FFS. Now the months of pain as we wait for a decision. Carney and digits should also cop extensions.

Haha, nah I think SharksForever needs to extend digits contract asap.

LU are knocking! :D

Are you serious?

Graham will stay, he is a must re sign and we need to do everything to keep him. He is the sort of guy who you can throw a 4-5 year contract at and know you will get your moneys worth unless injury strikes and will be our next captain!
