Rumours regarding Toronto. Be good to see him at the HJ again but would prefer to see him in a Wire shirt this time.

He's 35 already.
Utter pro athlete but he peaked several years ago.

He'll still do well over here. Fantastic for Super League also. Looking forward to watching him play over here if this happens.

No question but I feel what you'd get from him would be little more than what Salford got from Moz.
Great publicity but tiring effectively.
He's played a long RU club stint at arguably much lessor demanding than the NRL.

I cannot get the moment where he slipped over and went out of play, instead of simply putting the ball down at the HJS, out of my mind.
One great whimsical memory, for me.

Sonny Bill is one of the best off-loaders (with one hand). He won't lose that with age but his pace must have declined.

Even if Sonny Bill is approaching the end of his career and is going to be on an exorbitantly high salary, I get the feeling he will give any team that signs him some value. He isn't the type to loaf about on his past successes, he will be driven and set standards for his teammates. It would be like signing Zlatan in football.

My main worry is if he does get the salary banded about, is this going to set a precedent for others in future contract negotiations. They'll see one getting it and want a piece of the action. Don't get me wrong if it was offered to me I'd snap their hand off for it.
