    Todays SMH has Parramatta offering 500k for T-Rex and 350k for Darcy Lussick?

    Now is that is true then that will deadset do me.

    T-Rex is a great player but he really is only on the back of one great season, either way i can cop a struggling club offering him big bucks.

    Lussick, is a great talent, could be a superstar, but as a Manly fan i have got to say he has been only solid thus far in his NRL career. Would i like to re-sign him, absolutely, would i pay more than 200k?........No bloody way

    Then we hear they are keen on SBW


    So they already have

    Hoppa - 800k
    Hayne - 600K
    Sandow - 550k

    Then they want to throw big dollars at 2 of SBW, Williams or Lussick.


    They are soon gonna have 80% of the cap tied up in 5-6 players

    They were the numbers being tossed around in the media

    Now i'll admit, figures talked about in the papers cannot be trusted but still. if the above numbers are even an indication than its ridiculous

    Hopoate is into the sixth month of his two-year-mission. His decision to put faith ahead of fame, God against the game, made headlines last year and for every person who applauded his commitment, others openly questioned the wisdom of putting his career – and a $1.7 million, two-year deal with Parramatta – on hold.

    Parra are a rabble of a club and would sign Average Joe for 600k if he was on the market.

    They only seem interested in players that are overhyped

    They're like a "supercoach" manager, pick 17 players with 90% of ya money & buy 8 on minimum wage that'll never play first grade.

    Only difference is Eels pretty much do that after their top 6 are purchased.

    If lussick hadnt of started the brookvale brawl then no one would have heard of him. From that incident he has a reputation as some sort of enforcer, however he is still a bench front rower at best.

    I really hope we don't buy Darcy Lussick,in the games i have seen him play he makes so many errors,i don't think he could even win a maiden at Kembla Grange if trained by Sir Henry Cecil

    I'm guesing you've watched 2 or 3 Manly games so far this year. He's certainly not setting the world on fire but he's only made mistakes in a couple of games. Unfortunately those errors potentially cost Manly the game.
