    This not picking a back on the bench is the biggest look how smart I am after the event ever. Very few teams carry a back on the bench these days. You are far more likely to have a need for another forward than a fullback. If Freddy picks paps and Cook gets hurt do we bag him for not picking a hooker on the bench.
    If you are going to pick backs on the bench at least pick a Chris Lawrence style players that can cover in your pack too.
    But all these people who are saying pick Paps, where were you before game 1 and 2 ???

    Hmm never been a huge Joe O fan. Very different player to Aloiai, more of a solid prop. However he’s played 105 NRL games, 2 origins, only 25 and Brisbane will be paying a decent amount of his wage.

    One thing I do like about ANY new signing is that they are coming here knowing Madge’s reputation, so aren’t afraid of hard work. Look at what it did to a guy like Luciano this year. Proof is right there for those who put in.

    That's what AFB did with us and a week later he was announced.

    Job of a journo these days is monitoring likes and follows on insta. Probably explains why they are all so shit at actual journalism.

    Still vacancies in key positions. I’d say Hartigan/Madge are not looking for quick fixes.

    We will screw Manly over as hard as we can and watch the coffers overflow.

    The best is yet to come, a wave of marquee flooding onto the market. The player managers should be studying this closely.

    In the meantime, the death count under Madge stands at about 18 players in 2 seasons.

    Another thing we miss is that our Ex rooster footy manager inherited a complete mess. He got a grand final winning squad together, so he’s not exactly a novice.... but it takes a good couple of years for a clean up.

    I think we are 2/3rds in that process atm.

    Because of the cap disability, I’m thinking destination tigers takes off in 22 for a top 4 finish about 23 or 24. Adding another season for comfort.

    Hearing rumours that we are making a play for Ofahengaue. Not sure if it is part of orchestration from Manly for us to release Aloai or we are just going after him regardless, but either way I reckon he's quality...type of player that will excel under Madge.

    If true, we should offer him $1 more than what we were prepared to pay Aloai haha

    I think Aloiai is a better than Joe O so we definitely shouldn't offer him more than Aloiai.

    Recruiting Robert Jennings is more of a risk than recruiting James Roberts~The price would be the same and Jennings would be watching from the sideline more often even if Roberts relapses... ....The difference is Roberts is a click off being the fastest player on the planet and if there’s a try to be had it’d be taken in a heart beat..And I love watching him run, much more than JAC
    He just needs to lay off the Grog
