Rodney Eade may find himself with some much-needed company on the trip back to Victoria, with wantaway midfielder Gary Ablett kindly offering to ride with the axed Gold Coast coach as he returns to his home state.
“That’s a very long trip to do by yourself,” said the concerned onballer. “I know you’ve got a fair bit of stuff to take back, but what do you say we hire a trailer and make a road trip out of it, you and me?”
Eade was still said to be weighing up the offer at the time of publication, finding himself torn between 24 hours of crushing loneliness r putting up with his former captain’s shocking taste in music.
“Come on mate, you’re going that way anyway.”
