    I like Inu, he usually makes such sensible and honest comments.

    A nice young chat. I hope he can stay at Parra.

    Wouldnt it be great if all these guys just signed on right now, all together. No fuss, no hassel. Just would be good to wake up one morning and read, entire Parra squad signed for 2011.

    I expecting INU to have a big season, Tahu seemed to be a bigger loss than we thought. Especially of the field.

    i hope we keep him. he should flourish this year outside of T.

    he is still young, we have some good young players coming through and i think Inu could become a leader if we can keep him for the next few years.

    If he does have a big season, I reckon the $ factor will come into play. May say he wants to stay, but, the manager will be looking for the most $ he can get.

    Inu will stay even if it means dropping a few dollars to do so.

    this is no surprise to me and if he was to leave the club it would of been strongly advised by his manager to do so and not by his own instincts..I'd strongly advise INU to chat to Hodko before he leaves the club...

    Talk about a Kid missing a massive shot at 1st grade. He must be spewing. Just a bit more patience and he would have started 1st grade with us a fair while back.

    I'm impressed with the amount of quality halfs that have come out of the Parra System in the last 4-5 years. Hanging on to them is the trick.

    Going over old ground, the club made an offer to Hodgko as soon as he went down injured in the first trial game of the last season he spent at Parra. Usual tool in management and the offer of a first grade spot from Crusher and Des got him to the beaches, most observers thought he and KK would end up as our 6 & 7 .

    And despite constant form for the reserves team in Qld Cup he still looks set to miss out to Kieran Foran. If Manly were serious they'd play he and Hodkinson in the halves and Lyon in the backline.

    From what little that you've seen or heard, would you say Humble is a better prospect than Hodgo?

    Or are they completely differently players?

    Humble on the youtube links from Colonel looks to be in the Kenny mould. Not an organizer. However, I think Humble's nimbleness could suit the pass it around style we play.

    KK and Mortz more like Lamb.

    Hodkinson is an organiser with a good running and passing game. He'd be more suitable at halfback with Humble, Mortimer or Keating outside him.

    I remember the then coaching staff saying that they werent too dissapointed with Blake Green leaving because of Hodgko coming through. He was also coming through with Albert Kelly.

    I think a combo of KK at halfback and Mortimer or Humble at 5-8 would be awesome because KK is a pretty good organiser IMO and has a very under-rated long kicking game. We will loss atleast one of Humble, KK and Mortimer IMO

    I'm constantly amazed at how much talking up people are doing of Humble.
    I've seen the videos. He's seems like an amazing talent.
    But, let's not get too excited people. Has he played first grade yet?

    He could end up another Brett Kenny, but he might also be another Steve Witt.
    Let's wait till we see him play, eh, before we have him in first grade.

    Keating is far from an organiser. He and Hodkinson played most of their junior football together with Hodkinson clearly the better organiser. Keating is as someone suggested more of a Terry Lamb style player.
