    Canterbury throw loads of money around, but apart from that I see no benefit in playing there, and I say that for Luke Thompson as well. Imagine Saints played their games at Old Trafford every week, and then imagine how utterly soul destroying it would be for all involved. That's basically what Canterbury are.

    I said similar to my mate at weekend, they're bloody awful. I agree they should play at Belmore too, it's one of the iconic grounds, sort that grass bank out and get back there instead of playing in a soulless blackhole.

    I get the need for hospitality and it makes sense to use the big grounds for financial reasons, but the old grounds like Belmore, Kogarah, Leichardt Oval etc are criminally under-used. In this day and age where TV money is king it surely makes more sense to have games in the packed suburban grounds rather than 75% empty stadiums. This season is obviously a one-off, but in previous seasons I've avoided watching Bulldogs and Souths games because I can't be bothered watching games played in soulless empty stadiums. I'd take a slightly lower quality game played infront of a full house anyday. When we were in Sydney a few years ago I made a beeline for Leichardt and even went down to Wollongong to watch a game. The thought of going to ANZ or the SFS depressed the hell out of me.

    He is a really good SR, and he seems to have kept out of trouble in Australia. But you wonder if he would fall back into old ways if he came back here and had the same mates as before. Hopefully he has matured.

    Apart from the one incident in 2016 when he got a big fine and an eight game suspension by Wigan what other trouble was has Bateman been in?

    The majority of people who glass a work colleague would end up getting the boot or even jail, he was dealt with extremely lenient considering the circumstances.

    There have been so many at Wigan, assault, drugs, drunken driving, abusing bar staff. I must have been mixing him up with the rest of them

    Knew you'd have something to say defending him like a lot of you did Flower after doing Hohaiha on the deck.

    I'm really starting to get sick of him again, I went through a spell of just feeling sorry for him but he's taking the at the moment.

    Go back and have a look at my posts about Bateman and Flower. You can then come back and apologise.

    Just a pure troll with pretty much every post, don't know how he's lasted so long on here and not been chucked in the bin and rolled back over the hill.
