His missus probably theatened to beat the daylights out of him with a bat if he took another plane ride away interstate during lockdowns leaving her to deal with a house full of little ones.
I think she and the kids joined Marlion up in QLD last year.

No idea what his issues are but covid chaos would be putting enormous pressure on players with young families.
Yep and I reckon this is the likely issue.

Its really been a rough ride from day one for Marlion and his family to be honest, and if this was the case its understandable.

It may be as simple as he is not considered good enough at this stage?
His disposal has been club worst IMO.

I did see a picture of him with a big smile at training yesterday so he has definitely been training.

Probably being reprogrammed to play a different role?

Yes.

Our new centre clearance plan is for Marlion to execute five consecutive blind turns en route to a forward entry.

Problem is George is the only one who can read this play.

About time.
Between him and Flappers we had the worse 2 kickers going inside 50.
Rather Dow and Ralphsmith get a game

I’m not one for keeping MP, however though he was great at the end, also the bags u der his eyes looked like the poor bloke hadn’t slept in a month

Be mad not to trade him back home for 2nd rounder this year. Last year of any currency

Yeh if he wants to go home I hope we do everything we can. His is a wonderful story of redemption and succeeding against the odds. I’m happy if he wants to stay he’s earnt the contract.

i have the feeling he'll head West for family reasons. Forget about getting a second rounder for him though, maybe a third.

I'm a big fan of Number 50, and whatever is cool with him is cool with me ..
