I have it on decent authority that Gareth Widdop’s family have returned to Australia. You heard it here first....probably.

I thought part of the attraction of coming to SL was to be near his family. Let's hope, if true, it is just for a holiday.
Surely not another homesick Aussie.

Assuming they are Australian Citizens then they are able to return to Australia under the current regulations.

His Wife and kids are Australian so it's more than likely them that are struggling etc so Widdop will do what's best for them. If he goes back to Australia for his family then fair play to him. He's starting to show his form here and i think we'll miss him but we'll see i suppose :-)

Not true. Thousands are stranded overseas but are not able to get back due to restricted landings at airports and quarantine regulations after entering. Big political football here at the moment.

I think the club are aware of the situation, I will be surprised if he hangs around next year. Maybe due to the current restrictions & lockdown measures his wife and kids felt more accustomed to life in Australia, possibly felt it was easier for them to stay at their original home and keep the kids occupied... I suppose time will tell how it pans out but I’d say it sways in the favour of 70/30 that he’s returning to Oz unfortunately.

MW- yes strange times and I can understand why his family could feel unsettled given the situation in the UK with a long haul before returning to normality likely. It can't be easy for them.
And the thought of going into a long cold winter over here can't be appealing especially when they've not benefited from the summer.
Somewhat different if you're born and bred here.

On this 'winter' issue - shades of Tyrone Roberts.

So actually I'd like to give a big rap to Blake Austin and his family. None of this homesickness reported in connection with them.

What is this. The 4th player in the last 5 years who is playing the home sickness card.

Sorry. You signed a contract. Honor your contract. Or pay the outstanding years wages you would receive to break your contract from us. Plus compensate us for the time we have to waste on finding a replacement.

I'm sick of players who think they can sign a 3 year contact. For them to break it within a year. How can we plan for the future next year. 2 years 3 years in advance if the player that we are building the team around decides to bugger off.
