Just copied STP01's post - thought it was timely.


Signed with the Broncos for two years!

BRISBANE Broncos have confirmed the signing of former Gold Coast skipper Scott Prince on a two-year contract, ensuring the 32-year-old halfback will end his NRL career in Queensland.
Prince has negotiated a released from the final year of his Titans contract and will join Anthony Griffin's squad at the Broncos where he will fight for the No.7 jersey against NSW Origin contender Peter Wallace.

"The NRMA Insurance Broncos have today agreed to a two-year deal that will bring Scott Prince back to the club he last played with in 2003," the Broncos said in a statement.

"He will begin training with the Broncos when pre-season starts on Monday."

ASADA are still investigating the NRL and still haven't found or reported anything noteworthy yet.

Surrounded by the wrong people and poorly advised is more than half his problem.

EDIT: Mundine made me laugh the other day. He was with his minders promoting his upcoming fight with Shane Mosley. I think Mosley has him rattled, because Mundine said: "I didn't know whether to stare him down, or ask him for his autograph."

That's big of him.


Another black flip, this joker needs to be in the circus.

He's not going to Rugby now he's staying with the Roosters.

**** me dead, his guy must have saw dust in his head.

Legendary Gerry Posted - 10 Oct 2013 : 12:48:22
..but he does feel bad about it
bruce1 Posted - 08 Oct 2013 : 12:50:32
It's not his ability that's at question, it's his mouth and actions, he come out half way thru the year saying this game is to tough it's taking a toll on my body, i'm being targeted so I'll probably go back to union, great thing to say to Rooster fans and League fans in general, it may be taking a toll on his body, but **** me it's the same for all players.

I say "piss off" and take your mate Mundine with ya.


Edit:Poor old Sonny, he thinks he's bigger than the game, he's changed his mind again at the expensive of another.

If he was a nice guy and humble I would guess people would realise his abilities more, a bit like Vettel in a way. I think that is the major issue with preventing people from glossing over his actual performances.

I watched an extended highlights package of the game last night with the comments on it. He really did a lot of big beneficial plays and the sports show panel said without SBW the team would of lost. Sure he made some stuff ups, but he seemed to make a big impact that counted for everything when it mattered.

Wish I had watched the game in its entirety, seemed really good. That diving try was amazing!

Brad Thorn has also done this in the twilight years of his career.
To be playing at the top at his age is unbelievable

Money Bill is like Glenn Lazarus.
Went to clubs that already had good playing rosters or were on the rise.

Willsy, man of the match can't have a poor half and a good half - it's far too competitive for that. One half may be solid and the other brilliant but as the title demands, it's for the match not half a match.



Couldn't it be argued for a player who stood up when counted, made a crucial play and won the match for a team as well? Consistency is important, but I would assume standing out at crunch times would also be very valuable?

Brad Thorn is awesome. Still though SBW's record of winning titles with the Bulldogs and Roosters in the NRL, Canterbury and the Chiefs in Rugby, a World Cup with the All Blacks etc is not that far below Brad Thorn if at all I would of thought? Especially when they all came at his first and sometimes only seasons with those clubs.

Also forgot he rushed up in defence rather than holding and Manly scored outside.

Gerrys right and it's always been one of my criticisms of Money Bill. On fire one minute extinguished the next.
For a big bloke he also misses quite a few tackles. Inglis made him look ordinary in one game when he ran over the top of him


Whilst he doesn't have a lot of fans.. on here anyway, you can't bag the guy. He came up with the goods at the right time and his football record tells that story. Probably the most successful guy to convert and come back... and I wouldn't mind betting he'll be gone by years end again.

Seemed to make up for it then in the second half then! The amount of people I have spoken to that said either he or one other should of been awarded the man of the match tells me he did pretty good in the overall scheme of things.

He must have read this forum at half time.
He was a passenger in the first half but those 2 runs changed the game





I only watched about 10mins of the 2nd half, and in that time SBW made a large break which led to a try in the end plus plucked a high ball from the pack on his own line which could easily of been a try against them. As much as he is disliked, he still comes up with the goods when it matters, and has a successful record where ever he goes.


In the first half he knocked on in his own quarter then fell off a Foran tackle which on the next tackle lead to a try
Knocked on again a bit later
Threw 2 passes that didn't need to be made which lead to knock ons when the Roosters were bringing the ball back from their own line

First half he was a liability to the Roosters

He was the only one who genuinely thanked the young girl in the wheelchair that was giving the players their premiership rings. Won my respect for that.
