Just like Hayne, seems to have come back bulked up on whatever cocktail NFL players are fed these days.

Stronger but less agility.

Yep centre suits him now but one million per year for a centre is pretty extravagant.

Yep. Sounds like us getting Dugan for 800k was a bargain!!!

Depending on what the selectors did with their centre pairing I’d think both Turbo & Gagai would be picked as wingers preferences than Val

Achieved everything in like 2 years and then stopped.

Should have just gone to Union or something for his gap year. Oh well, it was probably a fun experience.

The Flanno effect, even happens to our own players still at the club. No one is safe

I reckon both Frizz, Peach & Fergo kicked on after us, Frizz & Fergo both have a lot of rep jumpers since, Peach not so much, both forwards are poor examples though as most could see they were both going to be very good players, I get why they left, at the time they were down in our pecking order behind either current or former rep players, Fergo went cause he could see no light at the end of the tunnel.

if he stayed at the sharks he could have gone down as the best ever. Such a shame to hit the heights he did then leave

Best ever what?

A big IF but would have been nice if the likes of Holmes and Bird stayed with us and continued developing the way they were.

Even having Barba for another couple of years would have been nice. What a waste.

I've just convinced myself to watch the GF over the weekend.

Wouldn’t have been the same player if he stayed with us IMO.

The Melbourne system made him.
