Will Jason Horne-Francis still be at the Kangas in season 2024...

Surely now it's of great concern that he's put contract talks on hold after earlier seeming really keen and talking up the club positively?

Maybe the coach has lost the players if performances are an indicator so perhaps a change there might help?

This was always the concern with JHF.

North need to do everything they can to keep him.

But if they can’t, they will need to extract everything they can out of Adelaide or Port if he wants to go home.

I’m not sure they will be offering the same collateral as Adelaide and Richmond did last year though.

Apparently a four year extension with around 750k year base but with incentives, sponsor rewards ect that could have him earning well more than that on the table weeks ago.


Now this... ohh he's gonski.

North need to geta bidding war from Port/Crows

There was a long term deal on the table with major money and a month ago it was all basically sealed...

Now this... Yeah nah he's gone after next year.
How do you know this?

IF it is true and he has put all talks on hold I think it is 100% he is gone. But who knows what the truth is.

Devastating for North if he does leave and he has only been at the club a matter of months and may already want out….. That is just ****ed.

Worth noting that his manager is Ben Williams who also manages Logan McDonald and he only extended this March. There's no rush at all but of course it's flavour of the month for the vultures to circle Arden St.

Play the victim and downplay it all you want but I don't really think this is a "nothing to see here" situation.

He's been noticeably frustrated on field, it's come out that Noble has had to apologize to players for the way he's spoken to them, you're getting pantsed every week and now he's put off contract talks.

Not saying he will leave, but I would hope your club are taking it more seriously than just calling it a media attack - which I'm sure they are.

All we need is three No.1 picks in a row and to bring in an established Brownlow medalist. That'll cook up some premiership success

Can North afford to make similar mistakes?

This would literally be a killer blow.

Yes, I'm happy to downplay it. It's not playing the victim, North have been a top story the last couple of days. Players push contract talks off all the time and this management group has history. It would also be very shortsighted to assume the club isn't treating it with due diligence. I'm just not going to meltdown like some others from a timed media article and I'm also not going to jump into the "he's 100% gone" certainty some are already running with.

Wasn't he a North supporter growing up? Sounds like the issue is with Noble not getting a tune out of the list and the players not trying in protest.

This would be more fun if you were far less reasoned in your thinking.
