Talk coming out of Aus...
The RL World Cup is coming around again and the talk is Sonny wants to play league again!

Mr SJM....I beg you break the bank and get him over to Wire. It would be the biggest global investment in a player a RL club could ever make. The biggest name in both codes.

Warrington Wolves will be on every ones lips and we'd have sponsorship and tv deals coming out of our ears!

Forget it, he is going to Sydney Roosters, after the World cup in 2019. By then he will be 35.

When I saw the title I thought you were suggesting we pay Super Bennie Westwood to stay on...personally I would but sentiment don't win prizes sadly.

At a reported 900k PA, that would have to be an awful lot of pies sold to cover the cost.
Sponsoring Fitzpatrick's Coffee run since 2017...I used to post a lot, then I didn't

Exactly my thoughts too, stay well away, he's a complete mercenary, selling his talent to the highest bidder.

Somehow can't really blame him to boost his retirement fund whichever way he can, but I don't think having him around for 6/12/18 mths would really give us any positive long term benefit.

Indeed. Absolutely no sense at all in signing the biggest name in world rugby. What possible good could come from that? Johns played 3 games and im sure most fans were pleased he came.

Oh yes, you're right.

SBW playing off the distribution of Brown & Patton is all we need to win a GF.
