    Journalist Patrick Smith has called for Manly to sack Trent Barrett because of his outburst. I honestly don't think Barrett's spray was as bad as Flannigan's. Barrett also gave credit to Penrith performance. Barrett mentioned two decisions from the Bunker. Flanigan spray was full half truth's, exaggerations, and listed seven occurrences some of them were blatantly incorrect.

    Gus Gould has been critical of the media suggesting they influence coaching terminations. Media are entitled to a comment, but they are not players.

    I think Trent would handle things differently given another chance and I agree his outburst was nothing in comparison to the performance of Flanagan which was nothing short of disgraceful.

    Todd Carney wants to return to the NRL, and says he would do anything to get a contract. It seems if he has gone to media with this, then maybe there is not much interest out there for him. Burn too many bridges. Dragons did offer him contract a year ago but it was refused to registered by the NRL because the Sharks dispute hadn't been sorted.

    McKendry certainly fits the MO. Fringe or ex-Kiwi boys trying to get a foot back in the NRL top team door. Hopefully he comes at market rates and not at overs!!

    Warriors offered latu a deal but he said no because he wants to live in Sydney.

    I think the Titans enquired aswell and they got the same reply.

    Latu has mixed heritage, also played for Tonga.

    Not sure if he's considered a kiwi though. Was definitely born in Australia.

    Haha, yes.

    Seriously though he is a Torres Strait islander. Not sure where he played his first footy after 13 though.

    After they missed out on the benefits of the explosive Rory Kostjasyn they have made a play for the similarly explosive Slade Griffin.

    Knights are on the up.
