If Richardson wasn’t worried about a massive loss and what that would mean for his job I’d be very surprised.
Worried? Let's be real. He knows he's gone. It's beyond that now. That might be our one and only advantage of this situation. No pressure on him now. Nothing will save him, not even a surprise win.

Hannebury 2 Weeks LOL

This club really loves punching itself in the face
Give it a couple of weeks and the club will come out and tell how we've been happy with his leadership and that we want him to have a strong pre-season heading in to 2020.

Paying this guy $800,000 per year for 5 years...1 year wasted, 4 more to go. Yay.

Old Xaverians never stay injured for long, honest....

The risk was high but at least they tried something - because only having Armitage , Dunstan to play our main clearance winner in the middle.
Just hope we get a good mid in the trade and Steven and Hannebery come good.

This is probably the worst year for injuries I can remember. Best player out for the season with mental health, second best player misses two years with a heart condition. Number one pick out for the year with concussion. Lonie his form then does the knee. Gun new recruit can't get on the park. Carlisle out half the season. Webster a huge loss with some weird hand injury. Captain out all year first with some freakish leg injury then injured first game back. It's a complete shitshow.

Yep, they tried with Freeman and maybe a ruck that hasn't played a game and has done his ACL

Yeah it really sucks that we couldn't have spent that $800k paying other blokes more than they're worth. Newnes and Sinclair really should have had it split between the two of them.
I'd rather pay blokes who are actually playing than a washed up ring-in looking for a massive retirement nest egg... we could have massively front loaed Marshall, billings and Steele instead or thrown 2 mil per year at kelly.
