    I don't really care anymore but if the greedy hadn't spat his dummy and gone back he'd still be playing professionally.

    I do think the ban was overly harsh though and the RFL should stop bending over to Australian bans.

    Agree that if he'd stayed here, he wouldn't have imploded like he did - but money wasn't the reason he went back to Aus.

    Anyway, I'm well over him after Coote's performances last season and our GF victory.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Really enjoyed his first 20 games of the 2018 season but once his head turned back to OZ was glad to see the back of him, Coote completely different temperament great team player.

    Agreed after the exciting attacking of the first half of the season, it was a relief when they finally announced he was going

    Was good to see him and his partner enjoying themselves at Dom peyroux's wedding. If only for his kids.

    From halfway through the 2018 season until he was booted out the NRL Barba let everyone down including himself. As good as he can be I wouldn't want him back, we looked settled last year without him and Danny. Just hope we can build on that now and have a few years of success with these lads we've been bringing through.

    Hope he's good. What he did isn't ever excusable, but people can make mistakes and realise that and improve.

    Do you believe he is going to improve? Some people it doesn't matter how many chances you give them, and he has had a few now.
