"Non, je ne regrette rien." That's what Mitch Cornish would say if he was French.
Instead, the Goulburn half simply says he has no regrets.
Even though if he hadn't returned to his hometown he'd probably be playing in the Sydney Roosters halves.
With Luke Keary out due to concussion, Cornish could be working alongside Cooper Cronk.
But the 26-year-old decided it was time to move on from the NRL after 20 games and start the next phase of his life.
A phase that's included the arrival of his third child, Theodore.
"I've had that question a bit lately, but no regrets at all," Cornish said.
"I did have this chat with [Roosters coach] Trent Robinson the previous year before I'd re-signed ... and he convinced me to stay on that extra year and see what happens.
"It did confirm my heart's not in it anymore. I still enjoy footy, but if your heart's not in it you're not doing the little things that keep you there.
"I always had bigger ambitions outside of footy - getting into work and business life."
Cornish is loving the chance to play with his two brothers Nicholas and Tyler for the first time.
It's come as the club's enjoying success this season, climbing to second on the Canberra Raiders Cup ladder and just one point behind leaders Tuggeranong.
And he's sitting third in the Les McIntyre Medal voting alongside his brother Nicholas.
"The club's been doing some really good things, we've recruited pretty well over the off-season and the players that were there last year are starting to play some really good footy," Cornish said. "The footy's good, the family's good so I can't complain.
"It's the first time the three of us have ever played together. Me and Ty have had our games here and there.
"Especially me playing with Nicholas in the halves, we're finding it a pretty good combination with us two because we're two different kinds of players.
"It's been good. I'm enjoying it massively."
The Bulldogs face a Queanbeyan Kangaroos side desperate for a win to keep in touch with the top four.
They sit sixth on the ladder and three points behind the third-placed Queanbeyan Blues and fourth-placed Woden Valley Rams.
Cornish was wary of the Kangaroos and felt their ladder position belied how they were playing.
"They've been a bit unlucky with some unlucky losses," he said. "They're a better side than what they are on the ladder so we'll be giving them all the respect this weekend."
