They said the same thing when he come over to Super Rugby and ITM Cup. We all know what happened over there.
Regardless what you think of him, he is talented footballers and I reckon after the half way mark of the season he will be back near the level he was when he left.
I reckon there is something wrong in League and Union when the top best leagues don't command the biggest pay cheque. Surprised more elite players from both codes don't do the one year contracts and cash up in Japanese or European Rugby in the off season.
The whole it ok the earn less money to play in the top leagues can only last for so long. End of the day your only one injury or bad season away from sent to out to pasture.
