I respect Ben Teo. I think he plays a tremendous role as an impact sub for Eng and I think he played phenomenally during the Lions tour.

He brings exactly the right sort of qualities we're looking for in a centre - fast running ball carrier with decent hands and an offloading ability. But, do I think he is the right person for Bath? Categorically, N-O!

I want to put it out there and say I had a lot more respect for Sam Bur (I won't say the rest of his name in fear of opening old wounds) than many other people on this board. But making an offer to Sam's old league teammate, who crossed over to union at the same time as Sam, is not taking us in the same direction we have been going in since the departure of Mike Ford.

Since Mike Ford left, there has been a noticeable decision to step away from anyone and anything involved with rugby league both throughout the club, as supporters and across this board - and that is likely for the best.

Again, I will reiterate that I believe Ben Teo is an excellent player. But the former South Sydney Rabbitoh is best left off of our team sheet IMO. He has transitioned very well, unlike SB. But I think a lot of people have forgotten Teo's relationship to SB and rugby league as whole.
