“I like being competitive and I like to have the ball in my hands,” Tahu said at the time.” That would probably be the most stressful thing; the game’s close and you want to do something and you can’t even get the ball because they’re very structured. Being a centre or winger, you touch the ball two times in a game – and I don’t really want to be doing that.”
That was Timana Tahu a month ago when asked about the possibility of him playing rugby union. Now, four weeks later, Tahu had inked a 4 year deal worth $2,000,000 to join the Australian rugby unions struggling ranks.
This puts Tahu along side Matthew Rogers when it comes to being two faced and changing their opinions depending on who is paying them.
I never rated Tahu as a top class player. I always felt he was to erratic and to injury prone to be a top player.
He can go missing for long stretches and he never was one to step up on the big occasion.
So one goes…..lets see who replaces him.
