Canberra are all about values and fair play according to those guys. That’s values and fair play in their own league/country I take it?! If there’s an opportunity to unsettle/take players for free from another league/country then they’re down for that. I keep hearing this line about Bateman throwing back what Canberra have done for him in their faces, how’s about what he’s done for them? It’s no coincidence they’re a better side now they have him, he was their best player in their Grand Final year and they offered him a contract where he can negotiate an increase each year.

You’d think these English lads had been plucked from a slum, working sorting out rubbish for pennies before the all giving NRL teams have them a better life. Bateman was a top class player before he went, he earned good money playing for a bigger club than Canberra and he won numerous trophies. He hardly needed to be whipped in to shape or taught how to play the game.

We're always letting players use us as a stepping stone and then welcome them back with open arms whenever they want.

I’d take the Aussie reporters figures with a pinch of salt. They seem to live in a fantasy land. If that figure was accurate, then clearly he won’t be coming back here.
