Roost­ers’ sec­ond thoughts on Blake

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

THE Syd­ney Roost­ers re­main un­sure about re­sign­ing NSW Ori­gin and Kan­ga­roos winger Blake Fer­gu­son.

The prob­lem is Fer­gu­son wants big money, but the Roost­ers are baulk­ing be­cause e they now re­gard him as a spe­cial­ist winger and not a full­back or cen­tre, where he has been found out in de­fence.

The Roost­ers will only of­fer him a one-year ex­ten­sion deal, even though he’s only 27.

But that’s an­other story. The club is still not con­vinced about his off-field de­meanour.

There is talk of an in­ci­dent early this year where he very nar­rowly avoided trou­ble.

Fer­gu­son’s agent, Sam Ay­oub, is now shop­ping him around to ri­val clubs. There has been in­ter­est from the Dragons and two other clubs.
