‘I wouldn’t be able to fight my way out of a wet paper bag’: Arrow

“There were a lot of lessons I learnt from that Origin incident,” Arrow said. “One of the big ones was to not do stupid things. It was a dumb decision. But I also learnt not to let anyone down, including the people you care about and your teammates.

“I’m doing my best for the boys here at Souths.

“The start of games are very fast and it can be hard to be constantly fired up. But when I’m off the bench I get to come on and be that ball of energy and add that bit of fire in the middle.

“You try to be that aggressor, but in the right way and in a smart way.”

Arrow played in two finals games with Brisbane under Bennett in 2016, then a further two in 2017, only to miss the preliminary final loss to the North Queensland Cowboys.

The big reason Arrow signed a long-term deal with Souths was because he saw the club had the roster to challenge for a title. He was reminded he had made the right call when boarding a plane back from Townsville a couple of weeks ago with the Titans, his former club who did well to reach the finals but were about to kickstart their Mad Monday celebrations.


“I openly said that when I signed, and that’s still the belief – I came to Souths to win comps,” Arrow said.

“I think anyone who takes one look at our squad knows we have the team [to win]. I’m not done yet, and I won’t be satisfied until we’re holding up that trophy.”

Arrow, who can play in the middle or an edge, said about his Origin ban, and having to isolate on his own when the competition picked up and moved to Queensland: “I definitely think I’ve been a lot better since [the Origin ban]. I owed it to them to play good footy for the rest of the year and it’s something I’ll try to stick to.”
