It still mystifies me that outside back Michael Withers left Balmain Tigers after the 1998 season and never returned to the National Rugby League. He was a phenomenal talent and surely his statistics after three years playing Super League in England had to catch some NRL eyes. His Super League numbers with Bradford Bulls from 1999 to 2001 was 61 games played with 47 tries. He played on in the Super League and his final season was in 2007 with Wigan. He had a great career in the Super League, yet one cannot help wondering what he might have achieved with more time in the NRL. Balmain Tigers fans were sad to see him go because we all knew he was a terrific player.
