    Winterstein was the nominee for the Ken Stephens medal so off field did good work. Defensively he was great 98% tackle effiency. He took Yeo's role over when he moved out wider or was injured.

    The issue with Winterstein was the tries he either bombed or missed due to no awarness. Also he was cheap as Manly paid most of the deal. Probably not worth it if full freight hence not re-signed

    I understand that. My comment was against the implication that the club (especially the recuitment team) was sitting back doing nothing. It wasn't said as such. The implication was there though.

    I was just responding to you saying you didn't understand his last comment so I was trying to help.

    Have they? I don't think anyone thinks they are doing nothing. Just aren't getting in bidding wars and want to get current clubs paying some freight if they can

    Thought we would of held onto Winterstein tbh. Was good value for us last year, underused imo.

    Smart player, good defensively & ran the best lines in the club.

    I’ve watched a bit of the PNG Hunter’s and Kumuls this year and thinking outside the square Nixon Putt or Moses Meninga could be good cheap depth players. Both have size, a bit of skill and tough

    I never said they are doing nothing and neither did Herbert. I was just explaining what he was responding to because Alice didn't understand.

    I thought he was a good back up option.

    Yes good defensively and ran good lines. But he was a big man with a small motor. Would last 20 minutes, go off and hardly seen again.

    He was put on for the 1st 20mins of the game to lock us up defensively, and not give away our starts, as we always had been doing, we won all the games barr 2 when he was involved in that game plan, when he stopped getting picked we won only 2 more games at the end of the season with out him
    Most forwards only play 25 mins a game, you obviously want a full team of JFHs

    I took the story to be Ricky helping out a mate on a slow news day. The article said nothing to say a signing is close and given they have set centres no idea why Scott would go over say Newcastle or Bulldogs and of course us.

    Well Raiders should have some cap since losing a gmfew players and BJ is a liability so I'd be looking for a centre.

    A quick question, why didn't Penrith keep him? He wouldn't be on such a big deal in England, he would probably have stayed here for minimum wage or a little higher. As for the 25 minutes that most forwards play, really?

    There were a bunch of people on this forum saying the club should wait & be patient, I’m saying such a strategy would be a mistake.

    No contradiction at all.

    I don’t know. I was making the point to people who advocated the strategy of waiting.


    Edit: The WW did hint we were in the running for Apisai
