BYE- BYE BAD BOY BEN
I won’t be sad to see the back of Ben Barba. He’s a great player and a delight to watch on the field, but his defection to union when all he had to do was wait six months before rejoining his mates at Cronulla shows he’s too selfcentred to be a true team man.
Besides, I reckon this will actually be good for the Sharks because it’ll free up money so they can keep Wade Graham, Jack Bird and Valentine Holmes, and I rate all three of them above Ben, especially when it comes to staying out of trouble! And it’s the safest bet in footy that Holmes will kill it at fullback this year. The only thing that will stop that from happening is if he gets injured — touch wood! JEFF MAY, VIA EMAIL
