Yes it is a pity, I enjoy watching Hiku’s attacking play as well. However his defensive frailties are clearly a massive issue - whether some on here want to admit it or not.
Why is everyone mentioning Aitken? I know they say he signed for the Warriors but that was 2 weeks ago. Nothing has been said out of the Warriors so why mention he is coming to the club if not even the Warriors have said anything in the 2 weeks since Aitken said he has signed?
Well if he has signed it was first reported 2 weeks ago - The Warriors had a press release about signing Ben Murdoch-Masila and Evans pretty much straight away, yet have never said anything about AitkenWhy would a player lie about signing? Do you really need a generic press release from HQ before you talk about potential recruits who are almost 99% confirmed?
Weirdest thing I've seen on this forum in awhile to question why people might talk about him.
Then lets not discus a player until it's official - could you imagine if we signed TPJ or JDB etc and it got released before being official and the NRL or courts had their way and they never came here - Don't count your chickens so to speakDid they have a release straight away or was the release just the first time it was mentioned publicly and made it feel like it was right away?
Aitken may have just jumped the gun. Agreeing and signing a contract is one thing but it still needs to be checked and registered by the NRL. Most clubs would wait for that official confirmation before announcing it.
