    BMM a loss but good to see some players starting to come back esp. CHT and Aitken.

    Such a big game - win this and we are on a roll with more players coming back soon

    if we are well placed with AFB comes back this could be an interesting season finally

    He's been off for quite some time now.

    And fair enough, he's got a young family, he wants to be back in NZ.

    Massive blow.

    And if Kosi is there again, Manly are going to be directing a shitload of traffic down his side - because he showed a lot of (understandable) indecision in defense first-up.

    Can't underestimate the benefits of extended family/grandparents and your own home when you're raising a newborn. Definitely don't begrudge him wanting to go home, if it's legit.

    In saying all that, not sure how that all works with the employer/employee relationship.

    Edit: It's real. Kia kaha Fus!

    All the best to Fus. Club should probably grant him a sabbatical to spend time at home with family working through whatever he needs to work through, and leave the door open for him once he’s sorted it if he’s ready to come back.
    If it has to do with prolonged separation from family it strikes home pretty hard with me right now. I’ve been doing the long distance thing for going on a year with my gf and still gonna be months more until we can be together, plus I haven’t seen my elderly mum in over a year, though with the bubble happening now I’ll be able to get back to me to see her fairly soon. It really drains you over time.

    Yeah hasn’t been ideal

    Taupau Fainu Aloiai
    Goseiwski Boyle
    Sironen

    Could make a decent pack starting pack and with Davey, Lawton and Walker thrown in you have our top 30

    Marty a head knock and Sironen close but aside from Walker the remainder are all 3 months away or season done so the development lads might get a run soon

    Any talk on when Ben Turbo might get a run. Using Sam Walker & Reece Walsh as exambles, it might be time to throw him in.

    No nothing as yet, he has been in the 21 for the past month or so, so is definitely on the radar. He certainly had a very good combo with Schuster in the age group grades

    He has played centre but at 193cm and 105kg backrow could be where he ends up
