I do feel for those Warriors players separated from their families. They have made a bigger sacrifice than most. But does this mean NZW are no longer interested in Benji Marshall? Even so, I still don't seen how we can afford him, especially in current circumstances.

There's a good chance they're looking at Benji now as I just read on the mole that Hastings will be turning down the Warriors offer even though it will be the highest.

Blake Green is public enemy number 1 amongst Warriors fans at the minute. His pace, creativity and kicking game are really lacking this season. It's hard watching a Wigan hero get bashed week in week out on socials, no doubt he will be retiring the end of this year.

The more I read about Hastings, the more it seems like that lightbulb has definitely clicked in his head.

He knows his talents and what he can provide for a team. I really do think that he now puts his career before anything else. Going to the warriors would make him a rich man, but would also be career suicide.

The Bulldogs might be bottom of the ladder, but with Hastings and Thompson they'd have a chance at turning that around.

Good on Hastings.

Hastings will struggle in the NRL. Too slow. Think best for him to stay put.....

I actually think you are right.

I think he is better suited to SL than the style of the NRL. I thought the reverse for Williams whose game in my opinion suits the NRL better than it does SL.

Either way though it’s clearly a scratch Hastings needs to itch so good luck to him.

Hastings is the kind of character the Warriors (NZ) need. Benji doesn't want to leave Wests, as there's likely to be a coaching job for him when he does retire.
