What's Zac like, is he good or just another KOE player TM?
TBH, I never heard of him, til I read the article about Manly releasing players.
All I know is, he is Scott’s son and was Manly‘s pathway player of the year, he plays back row.

"I think Manly and the Tigers are discussing perhaps a trade, or a swap, with Alex," Gould said.

"We'll know more next week what his intentions are, and we've got to decide whether that's right for us as well.

"Alex has to decide whether that's right for him."

Who would we be after from Manly? Half their forwards are ex-WT's lol

however if the Sea Eagles want to obtain Twal, they'll need to orchestrate a swap for young middle forward Sean Keppie.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports both players are on quite similar salaries and a swap deal has been put forward.

This was mentioned earlier. But not sure, WHY, if $’s are similar? Twal is 2 years older.

Something to do with aging appendages maybe ha ha. If that's the case, I think I'm one of the so called droops Macca :D
Aye? How can that be G’s about 35-40ish
I don’t explain shit on here.. but take out TM include the poster S1 ..read pretty much all their posts and it’s pretty obvious..
And it is on the dictionary if u look close enough

I just watched Panthers outclass the Storm.
Whoever the Panthers conditioners are we need to sign people like them. All the Penrith players look so athletic and they play a fast tempo game from start to finish.

Twal's a try scoring machine TM that's why or it might have something to do with TPAs. Keppie is demanding a new car and Twally just wants free kababs.

We're bound to recruit at least 1 or 2 more so I wonder if we'll get a good one. Maybe after the grand final is done? Dreaming again.
Probably resign Staines which I would be happy with.

Agree with Staines.

Hard to say where we need more depth, but I think the halves & backs are the area we need to build on.
I am hoping Reilly will earn one of the centre positions, I only seen a bit of his games, but he looks very promising.

I think we need a strike centre right now because we have enough koe cup std backs.
Oh i wish we had Manu to nurture blokes like Reilly and Feledy.

Easy, blokes who don't miss tackles and make dumb choices in defence. Start with 6 of them and work on from that.

Sounds easy, so……

Which 6 to punt (don’t forget contractual commitments):

What 6 to sign (considering we are double spooners, who wants to come?):

Well the way I see it TM is the club is running with Sezer and Sullivan until Latu Fainu is ready to take over ½ then pair him with Sullivan.
Or we get a gun ⅝ who has been there done that and sign him for a year until the pairing of Fainu and Sullivan are doing well as a combo in KOE then bring that pair up into the NRL.
I think it's important for the ½/⅝ to play together well just like Cleary and Luai do.
So if this is the case, what gun ⅝ is at the end of his career and wants a short gig??
I can't see any other scenarios considering we just paid good money and lengthy contracts for new halves.
It's a top rate centre for me like Herbie Farnworth, Staggs or Best but they're tied up so who?

That’s the point, it ain’t easy atm, especially for a club in our current position. It will turn, just not sure when:)

Yep so true.
I think that's why the club appointed Fulton to try and break that chain (shite way they went around it though).
He's been connected to Manly and would have identified Latu Fianu as a future star so I'm hoping this happens.
We should have money after releasing a few players so we might be able to get a player swap.
Let's pray Fulton has a card up his sleeve as we approach the end of the season and Nov1.
I really have no idea, that's why my mates call me "Nuts"

The said we are looking for depth not starters. Given that we ran last, I would think prioritising signings of blokes that can and will tackle all day without missing very many might be a good start.
