Blake's New Job!
Matty Johns reckons it will turn into a bit of a PR stunt
Blake Ferguson has joined the Roosters behind-the-scenes as Community and Junior Development officer.
It's the first step in the bad boy's attempts back on the field after being found guilty of indecent assault and it will be former Roosters legend Brad Fittler who will oversee his journey back.
Matty Johns has told the Triple M Grill Team he reckons it will turn into a bit of a PR stunt.
"I think very soon you're going to see photos of Blake Ferguson on his school visits and you'll start to get photos of Freddie and Blake," said Matty
"You'll start to hear quotes from Freddie saying 'he's doing great, he's a great kid who's going to turn his life around' and then, who knows, it's up to the NRL."
Fergy's Role At Roosters A PR Stunt?
Earlier On Triple M
Former NRL bad boy Blake Ferguson has got a job at the Sydney Roosters, signing on with the club in a community and junior football development role.
The Roosters boss Brian Canavan gave Ferguson the green light to start work his "off-field" work immediately.
This is the first time Blake Ferguson has been associated with an NRL club after he was sacked by the Canberra Raiders for off-field discretions in 2013.
It is believed this could open the door for the 24-year-old signing a playing contract with last year's premiers later this year.
