    Maybe that's it? Maybe his manager has shopped him around and he has no takers in Aus?

    Anyways it's up to him I'm happy either way

    That standard of opposition he looked good against didn't change. Sure he might have had a bigger, more involved role in a sh*tty team, but I don't understand the theory of bad players around him making him look like a star, scoring great tries & running up a big work rate?

    Gold coins look really good when surrounded by 5c pieces
    But gold coins don’t look that great amongst $100 notes

    That's a strange analogy, as it refers to value rather than quality and ability. It also doesn't make sense IMO. Put it this way: Ross would be able to show what he can do more so outside of a quality centre than a poor one. Look at Inglis playing in the centres for Origin, for example. You could place George Rose outside him and I'm sure Rose would bag some meat pies (not the ones he might normally bag though).

    So his tries, line breaks & effort were because of worse players playing with him? Again, the opposition he played against didn't change, he still did what he did against NRL standard players. The only difference was back then he was a main player of the squad, so was expected to have that kind of involvement.

    Ross had a knack of getting between players when bringing the ball off our line. It allowed a quick play the ball and a decent start to our sets. It was his best strength. SKD did a great job of that last year using size. Brown is going with the same with Lee. I actually think Ross has a quicker play the ball than the other two. I think he lags behind them in the defensive aspects of the game though.

    I’m saying Ross looked good to us because there wasn’t much quality in the team before, so we weren’t expecting much. But now the standard of our expectations has improved, Ross isn’t at or above the standard.

    I think your pulling your own string. Ross is a very capable first grader on the wing. You can't deny that............

    He's good, but a liability in defense from kicks. Lee and SKD kinda eliminate that worry.

    Ross came in 15 years to late back in the early 2000s there was a place for wingers of his size now they get destroyed by bombs and 6ft5 wingers that leap like AFL players.
