    The Roosters paid over the odds for him back in the early 90's (either 91 or 92) and he played against Balmain (I think) for five minutes before breaking his leg. Then being out for the season.
    He broke his hand.

          Perhaps, but wanted out like a North Korean trying to run across the DMZ. Disrespectful to the club I thought.

            Nathan Tutt
            Luke Milton (offered nothing in FG, now RU 7's player)
            Eric Grothe Jr (one of the worst I have ever seen)
            Mark Leafa (nuffie reserve grader)
            George Azzi (poor guy has cancer now, I heard)
            Michael Korkidas (couldn't hold the ball to save his life)
            Kylie Leuluai (bonehead, no discipline either)
            Justin Holbrook (good reserve grader, average in first grade)
            Wade Humphreys (painfully limited)
            Fred Peterson (had potential at Panthers, what happened?)

            Ben Wellington (had talent but never realized it)
            Luke Dorn (just an average player)

            Brett Firman (disgracefully bad signing)

            Lafi Manua (fat, slow, not FG material)
            Charlie Tonga (to be fair, he had a LOT of potential, never used properly)

            Chris Beattie (likewise)
            Josh Lewis (horrible attitude, errors galore)

                Has to be Willie Mason when you consider his pay packet

                Led us to the wooden spoon and would have backed it up with another this season at the Cowgirls had it not been for the cheating Storm.

                  Yep, the hooker we signed from Manly. Massive wraps and big bucks and did exactly zippo!

                  From memory, his problem wasn't even injury, just general lethargy.

                  But as outright winner, you can't go past Vautin for generally crapping all over our jersey!

                        Agreed... Willie Wanka never really made the leap from being the big stupid guy to being a leader. He was lucky to ever play rep footy (always had size/attitude but no talent.)

                        We signed him thinking he would be a leader... somehow scraped him under the salary cap (many said we must have cheated) then he offered us absolutely nothing. Set the club back 10 years at best! **** you Willie Wanka...
