Dallas Johnson has accepted an offer "too good to refuse" and signed a three-year contract with Super League club Catalans Dragons in France. His contract was until the end of 2011 but Storm have let him go. A very good player. I am amazed at how the Storm keep making the finals with the level of their losses each year. Dell has hung up his boots. "Dual international Wendell Sailor has announced his retirement from professional sport, thanking his NRL club St George Illawarra for helping him to find "redemption". Sailor, 35, said he felt the time was right to quit, although he believed he could have played on for another year in the NRL." I actually think he definitely had another year in him. Putting up with his media basking can get too much sometimes but it was good to see a character liven up the crowds the way he did. Big Willie looks like he is also going to leave the NRL. The Chooks don't want him. I would have signed him. Someone like Des could turn him completely around but there is no doubt you would take on an unknown liability, even under a Manly regime. I am also looking forward to the 4 Nations final this weekend. Choc looks like being relegated to the bench with Gallen and Lewis starting. Sheens is insisting Gidley will play some part (but oh god why?) and Jennings may miss out completely with Hodges listed as starting. The funniest part of the game will be the ref - with Kiwi Leon Williamson, an Auckland based kickboxing plumber who referees NSW Cup at weekends, getting the gig ahead of Hayne (well he is a biased Aussie in the eyes of the Poms). The atmosphere should be terrific but hopefully we can keep the crowd quiet.
