I talked to a friend of mine who is a doctor at Leeds Rhinos when we (Cas) signed him.
His comments were “lovely lad, great player but there’s no cure for stupidity”.
He’s managed to screw up at two highly successful clubs during his time there (admittedly that was only one season at Cas). He will inevitabely do so again.


Hardaker and Bateman at the same club.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

Barber got 12 game ban for same offense, so lets keep things in perspective

My view i know wigan will have the contract structured correctly for whatever happens, we also have escare around aswell


And Barba had off filed issues more than the drugs as well.


Google Barba off field issues longer than ZH

Chances are Bateman won’t be here but let’s be honest about it, you’re more worried about what POSSIBLY could go right!

You must be or you wouldn’t be on here.

For you? Wigan win everything and Leeds slope back off into mid-table mediocrity.

Having just watched the interview I have to say my opinion of the man is unchanged. An undoubtedly talented player he is bloated with self importance. To add insult to injury he has dropped on a top RL job despite doing the dirty on more than one club and their fans.

In fact, I applaud Zak just for being in the same room as Brain Carney :wink:

Cas were successful when he was there. Even when things were going well, he couldn’t manage to keep himself out of trouble.

Watched the interview and the key thing going forward and it's something I've heard him say in previous interviews at Cas and Leeds is the issue of finishing training at 12/1 and having nothing to do in the afternoons and getting bored and going out doing stupid stuff. He talks about he's not in that routine now with him working a 9-5 lately and misses being around the lads at a club. So for the talk of him saying he won't mess up again the crunch will come when he's thrown back into the exact same environment that he's consistently struggled with especially the midday finishes with nothing to do in the afternoons and mates who will want to know him again if he's making headlines for the right reasons.

Sounds like he’s moving around these parts with his girlfriend looking at an interview in our local paper so hopefully he won’t have the option of going straight from training and down to his local pub with his mates or round to their houses.

You’re right, the proof will be in the pudding and we’ll see what happens. One thing I would say is that if his time with his mates in Pontefract is limited then I don’t think he’ll have too many bad influences with the club. The culture looks a very good one with some real solid older heads and good young pros. I’d imagine he’ll mix more with the likes of Gildart and Burgess and they’ve not caused any problems for the club. Hopefully they’ll help keep him in check rather then him being a bad influence on them.

^^^ I said it a couple of months ago and got shouted down for it - keep Zak away from Ponte and you have a chance with him. I believe he is decent mates with Charnley, so could spend a bit of time with him if he’s living in the area.
