I'd have him back, knows where the white line is.

Thoughts?

Bit of a dilemma really, given the culture DP has tried to instil and his constant references to it. On the other hand, Zak was the main reason in our stepping up a level last year and that will be hard to replace.

Tough one but, personally, I'd keep him.

Certainly knows where the white line is; no disputing that!

Could you not have posted that non-news story in one of the many that are already here

Got told today that the band substance in his system was only alcohol. Does that change anything?

Hahaha I very much doubt that. Not a chance in hell that he was only done for drinking.

Alcohol isn’t an illegal substance.
Certain won’t be that.

Banned not illegal is what all the releases say. Not saying it’s true just what I’ve heard.

The hard thing to do is forget about his quality as a rugby player and concentrate on the fact the bloke took an illegal substance and how he let team mates and fans down badly.because imo he is one of the top 5 full backs in the world doesn’t mean we should welcome him back.if it was a player less skilful from our squad say Hitchcox or Keiran Gill we would be wanting rid and a example made of them.you can’t be blind sided by who he his and how good a player he is.its just morally wrong

Can't see it being less than 2 years unless he really is innocent

IF any of us break the law today i would bet it would not take as long for us to be in front of the judiciary as its taking SILLY ZAK to appear , they have only had three cases to deal with from the rugby league only RANGI as been tried you would think with the time its taking they are mowed out with work

Rangi got plenty of chances at cas. It's Zak's first mistake here, forgive and forget I say...

If he gets a 2 year ban and we stood by him and found him alternative employment would he still on return have 3 years left on his contract or would the time banned be counted as contracted years

If so he would have 1season left with us before being free to move on elsewhere seems too big a risk to me if this is so but if he still had 3 years with us after his ban then might be worth a gamble

I think it's a tough one. If the player was a fringe squad member we wouldn't be having these dilemmas. That we paid a big fee for him and he's one of the best in his position, it make it difficult.

Until the club know what is going on, I guess we wait.
