Vinnie owes Poch fuck all mate he should leave and carve out a living a level below the PLI get what you're saying but it's not just his decision but the clubs and a pretty big financial one. Poch has now had time to work with the player who now looks fitter and stronger. It might be less of a risk (and cost) to keep him.
If Poch says "Look Vinny, you've shown true character and grit to come back, next season is long and there are lots of games, I have you down to cover a percentage of them" what would Vinny do?
I know that's a massive leap and we've been trying to offload him for a while, maybe it's just my wishful thinking of not wanting to let someone leave who I think has a real chance.
