Izzy Folau looks like he might be a free agent soon

Zammit is good. Parr and Green are the ones who let them go. I made mention of it, even at our best, that we were piss poor in retaining our youngsters and now everyone seems to agree. Copped a bit of flak for mentioning it a couple of years back when we had lost Ponga, Smith, Hughes, Martin, Segeyaro, Rona, Kaufusi and Kikau etc in the years prior.

I wouldn't mind Tariq Sims back right now.

There is a bit of a difference between violence against women, and condemning a way of life that isn’t in accordance with his religion. There were many other groups of people that he said would go to the imaginary place that is hell, but only one particular group that the outrage call out community are making victims in all of this.

I would welcome Izzy to the club with open arms. At the end of the day he doesn’t agree with a particular life style, and that’s where it ends. It’s not as if he’s throwing those people off rooftops, or stoning them to death.
Fine to discuss the merits of signing Folau but let me preempt this discussion and say we won't have any debates about the validity of religion or sexuality on here thanks.

The way we are going I would welcome ' The devil Incarnate " himself. One door closes and another opens. We are a football team, we have had a few bad boys let us down, I see no harm trying the other side.

Never going to happen...........

He is feuding with the code. There's no way that the NRL will want any more negative publicity.

I doubt Israel Folau and his wife would want to live in Townsville.

I’d be happy to sign Folau until the end of the season. Doubt he’d want to stay longer than that but we have the cap room to play him this season.
