    tbh I'd like to see us use him in the second row .... I fear for us if we come up against a team that knows how to exploit outside backs .... i think tony has done well but he's not overly quick and his size doesn't allow him to turn real fast

    We will get the best out of Williams. I feel a bit sorry for him as he has made a blunder going to Manly who will not be patient with him. I think he will be on the scrap heap Joe Gnulavao style within three seasons - due to Manly not doing the right thing by him.
    However, he will give Parra a brilliant end to the season while opposition teams come to grips with the magnitude of his strength.

    You people need to seriously wake up.

    He did what every young teenager would have done.

    Put yourself in his shoes, a young footballer, offered a better contract with regards to not only money but lifestyle, and being promised a regular first grade spot.

    He took that option and good on the kid for doing so.

    If anyone here says that if they were in his situation, they would of stayed for less money and not being promised a regular spot are kidding themselves.

    Close the thread somebody because it's seriously getting beyond stupidity.

    Although Williams left for the $$, hopefully he can help give us a premiership this season. My team for the rest of the season would be- (although will never actually eventuate)

    1-Hayne
    2-Williams
    3-Reddy
    4-Inu
    5-Grothe
    6-Mateo
    7-Finch
    8-Cayless
    9-Keating
    10-Fui
    11-Hindy
    12-Huraki
    13-Robinson

    14-Riddell
    15-Cordoba
    16-Oake
    17-Paulo

    This is the team that could take us to premiership glory.

    I think Grothe can come back bigger and better but im not holding my breath. I think the team to take out 08 will be

    Burt
    Reddy
    Benny
    Hayne
    Inu
    Mateo
    Finch
    Cayless
    Keating
    Cordoba
    Hindmarsh
    Hauraki
    Robenson

    Riddell
    Williams
    Paulo
    Fuifui

    Wagon will unfortunatly pull get injured (tearing his peck mucsle passing the ball), if not i hope he gets dropped TBH because that would also mean Robo (who has been in better form) could play 80 min

    100% inaccurate. Manly has an envious record on developing players with patience. If you take out the obvious playmakers like Ox & Lyon to whom this issue doesnt apply, then we have carefully developed over 80% of the remaining squad. Of the rmaining 20% (eg Michael Bani, Mattai) each has shown high levels of skill sets and endurance for the game.

    So basically, your assertion is a hessian bag full of bollocks.

    all i can addis i was pissed off when we lost lyon,and then tonga,but then we produce hayne and inu,in return.
    I am pissed at the loss of williams,but we will come up with another one im sure of it.
    as for manly developing players? pull your head out of your arse mate,if cleal didnt still have close contacts with someone at parra,and understand the production line of jnrs here,you would not even know about williams.
    remember orford,you couldnt get rid of him fast enough,to buy kimmorley,after one season,your impatients stood you all up

    Interestingly enough, I have heard if Etu Usalie didn't get injured against Newtown while playing for Wenty, he would have gotten the call up instead of Tony Williams.

    Hagan was quoted to say that. Etu was definitely next in line for a wing position.

    Williams is a young 2nd Rower playing wing. If you have a look at his positional wing play, well it is interesting. There is no doubt he is a big bloke, but at the moment he is running at centres and wingers not 2nd rowers.
