“We had James at Panthers for about 18 months,” Gould said.

“If I ever wrote a book I would devote a chapter to him. That boy left a real indelible mark on me to learn about his life and what he went through to get to where he was.

“And we had problems with him for 18 months and I was working with the NRL Integrity with him constantly because it’s very hard for these kids to break free from their past sometimes and they keep slipping back into bad habits.

“We had a number of issues with him and it sort of got to the end when the coach said we can’t have it anymore he’s got to go.”

Gould said the NRL wasn’t far away from pulling the plug on Roberts too.

“The NRL Integrity had had enough and I wrote a letter to the NRL Integrity don’t give up on this kid who’s ready to go. He’s probably outworn our staff but he’s ready to go on.

“But I was glad he went to the Broncos because I knew they had the support services to do it.”
