    He will sign with Souths for this year but not until after Souths play Penrith in two weeks.

    McKendrie will also sign at Souths for 2015 .

    Seems a bit redundant

    Especially with him playing NSW cup right now

    Wouldn't be a good look if a bloke you moved on only two weeks earlier came back and had a blinder against you. Gould is to savvy to allow that to happen. Imagine the media backlash if it did.

    Yes, losing Grant when we are already skinny up front to save a whopping $300k of salary cap space is just the smart thing to do. I froth at the mouth just thinking about what we could do with all that money, anything is possible, hell maybe we could even sign up a representative prop with it.

    Grant is the type of player Manly thrive on resurrecting

    Not enough cap space for him though, I'd say.

    Where did you hear that? Not that we need Inu, and Des sort of showed his hand on Inu last year when he didn't play him in the finals.

    Centre is our biggest lack of depth and someone in the backline who is a true fullback cover as well (Saturday showed that)

    Could work but will believe it when I see it

    Would be very sad to lose Inu, on his day he is brilliant. But I don't think there's a place for him in the team at the moment and Des dropped him last year for the finals so I'm not sure where his place lies in the team.

    Who are you to doubt a Phil Gould press release?

    I heard that Gould just recently tried to get Grant to sign amendments in his contract while his manager was sick in the hospital, and it's caused a big rift

    To come out so hard and deny it & then let him go would be a very poor PR exercise indeed.



    My guess is they may have backflipped because of fan reaction.

    These sagas tend to play on with Gould and Penrith - same as Jennings, Lewis and Coote. Pressuring them into lower grades and other means until it comes to a head

    ?It is my hope and I?m sure Tim?s hope, that he gets to play many more years with the Panthers, and that would be the best result for all concerned?.

    In any case I'd consider Gould saying "Grant will see out his contract at Penrith" as a hard denial. Saying that they are hopeful he will do it, and that he feels it would be in everyone's best interest... Feels like its been worded carefully enough that it doesn't look like Gould is contradicting himself if Grant goes

    I'm sure Gould would love Grant to stay, if he takes a pay cut
