“Nepotism means you give most of the money at the club to your relatives, and you know who his father in law is, don’t you? It’s the recruitment manager O’Sullivan and his son (Sean) is the halfback. “That’s the first thing they need to sort out is not Matt Lodge
giving the finger to the crowd, but the nepotism in the club where they are giving out money to their relatives and sign some decent players.”
This snippet tells you all you need to know about Kemp.
Very one sided and agenda driven point of view on the situation. And plain stupid.
For one - SOS was signed as depth and was the 3rd choice half to start the season. Was thrusted into extended playing time due to injuries, and then due to Kodi stinking it up this season. The club even bought Townsend back for the rest of the season, who was automatically ahead of Sully before he fucked his shoulder.
With Lodge - he’s a fucking top-tier front rower, outside Addin Fonua-Blake
our forward depth has been average and was a no brainer to bring him here, boosts our front row stocks (next season him and Addin Fonua-Blake
will be the best starting front row pairing in the comp) - better yet with the Broncos paying half is salary to boot.
Those weren’t “jobs for the boys (or family in this case)” - those were 2 smart signings that addressed an issue with the squad and made us better off.
Aka what POS gets paid to do. And what he does freakin’ well.
On another note - the whole Lodge situation, I feel, is being blown way out the park.
The “late” hit on Peachy, you see those all the time and it was Wallace to rushed in to initiate the push and shove between the two anyway.
Lodge is a target of the refs, probably gets so much shit from players and fans alike, and for a man trying to escape his demons, when they show their face sometimes you are left with no choice but to retaliate.
Aka flipping the bird to the crowd…
Not his brightest moment, but this talk about how the club needs to get rid of him etc. because of it, mate fuck off.
Evans, on the other hand…
