Damian Barrett has criticised Brendon Bolton's messaging, saying he's "not buying" that this is the club's first ever rebuild.


Barrett flashed back to Bolton's press conference from Friday night, where he said the club was "focused on a full-blown rebuild" for the first time ever.

“It’s the messaging I don’t like, as much as anything,” he told the Saturday Rub.

“It’s been a 17-year rebuild.”
