    He has moved on and so has the club so I'm not sure why people feel the need to bag him out and resurrect old threads

    He played over 100 games for us and stayed when most left

    Good luck to him, No hard feelings

    Brown said our offer was similar to Souths, if not a little bit more. It wasn't a money move, he wanted to leave.

    Yeah, approaching at the wrong angle invariably ends in a painful or embarrassing experience. Play nice guys :giggle:

    Maybe bagging to the club after he left it resulted in animosity.

    He was such a frustrating player. His defence is woeful and I was happy he left because he used to miss so many tackles.
    I know he is a decent bloke and was loyal to Newcastle during the last few years, but his defence was too much of a liability.

    He didn't but the consensus was he wanted to go to a team on the up with a chance to compete for the premiereship. Fair decision from him.

    His little tit about us signing other people and that he even though a large contract getting offered was not the priority hence, his off to a bottom 4 side.

    So a little tit is same as bagging, do you make up things as you go when you take a set against a player, read Browns report on Gagai, at his signing with Souths we couldn't guarantee getting anyone so he left for what he thought was a better opportunity as it was at the time but things have changed.

    Very interesting match for both teams to prove they are top 8 contenders.

    What i read about Gagai said the contracts were pretty much the same but 1 he wanted to play along side Inglis and 2 he had someone turn up with a big brown paper bag ...

    South’s should spend Inglis’ salary elsewhere and let him get his big payday from the Broncos after that effort to tackle Sione.

    Gaigai was literally invisible the whole game until he happened to be in the right place at the right time to score that try

    About what I expected of Gags really. When he was supposed to be on the wing I was concerned as he can finish a backline movement, but in the Centres more often than not he stops them. I wasn't worried about the impact Dane was going to have at all.
