    Maybe someone doesn't know how to speak to players from the Pacific Islands?

    Maybe thats it. Same people seem to strike the right chord with plenty of others though.

    Very hard to find fault with players who chase the $s if they're not able to crack a S15 contract. Especially if the Wicks are not paying anyone anything. A pity though that the progress made this year may well be undone by guys like Samu and Lautolo leaving.

    Randwick 2nds went well last year, sure someone will fill the void. If those guys want to get paid and randwick doesnt pay then obviously that's the reason those guys left. Good luck to them.

    completely agree Coach pretty much all of the players listed are living away from home (melb) trying to make it. Can't be blamed for leaving to make life easier and are wished all the best.

    Guys like Jack Johnson were offered $$$ to go but are staying primarily because they live locally and dont need it as much.

    some pushing agendas would have u believe otherwise

    $$$$$ is far from the reason Lam and Samu are leaving. There is plenty more to this story.

    I read with interest some of the pejorative remarks regarding players leaving the Randwick club , above.
    On the other hand ,there is no criticism of players who are mentioned as leaving other clubs to join Randwick next year.
    As they are allegedly not being paid by Randwick to go there , then there are, presumably, other considerations influencing their decision to leave their
    current clubs.
    Why therefore is it seemingly inconceivable to some that similar considerations may not influence players to leave the Randwick club ?
    I know of a first grade player who is joining Randwick next year,who has not yet been mentioned in this thread , who has great affection for his parent club , has played there for
    5 years,including 2 years in colts, & is held in high regard by his parent club ,& received an award at this years awards night.His circumstances however,preclude him from
    being able to get to training there next year, hence his reluctant departure.He leaves with the blessings,good wishes & thanks of his club.
    The Randwick players may or may not may be influenced by financial considerations , but either way they have been good servants of the Randwick club
    & good luck to them in their respective futures.
