Nothing wrong with that at all :shock:

It’s what can happen when you sign loan players.

The risk you take!

sts have got away with murder on and off the field for years.playing a teams when it suits,i still remember the covid farce last year.they had a fully fit squad for the final,should have been playing rovers on a short turnaround,when teams are vulnerable.suddenly they have a few down with covid.match off.following week we play leeds on the friday they also have a game.they called that off.had a nice fortnight off after wembley.we had a 2 day turnaround after leeds and played sts on the monday,who been resting for over 2 weeks.we unsurprisingly got well beat.i remember pearson wasnt happy.i didnt blame him.cheats

If lover is refusing to play 9 which I've heard too and believe to be true, is he worth another year and quota? I don't think he is but I do believe he's already got a year from a clause on our side.


I'd have sympathy for him if he was an experienced NRL player who thought he was not been used in his favoured position.

Lovodua was a part time NSW cup player who didn't make the first grade and would probably have been released by Souths. There was no guarantee he would have been picked up by another club.

It's not for him to dictate what position he prefers to play and it's just staggers me that he refuses to play 9 the position he was brought over here for. He should be proud to play for the club full stop.

He started the season well but his form has fallen away like the rest of the team.

If he doesn't want to play 9 perhaps we should use his quota place to sign a specialist who does.

If we are going to have a utility player it should be Smith. Look at what he has done in his career compared to Lovodua.

I've never been one to criticise individual players but in this instance I feel justified. I've seen a lots of players over the years that are simply not good enough but as long as they've got the right attitude and put in the effort I'm reluctant call them out.

Of course all of this is speculation and if it turns out to be bollox!

And therein lies the rub, because I heard he wants to play there full time, but at the moment his opportunities are limited.
Chinese whispers and all that :lol:

How is it cheating to ask your own employee to play for you
Clearly Percival is not ready, Grace is out and the young lad hill is out of his depth and possibly injured.

Simms would have been going back this week whether it was Hull FC or Wakefield that Saint are playing.
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

If Mitch is back, then put Wynne on the wing and we are stronger.
