Mary must be blind, as well as stupid....
He should have been given a go.
So why not keep Packer, and welcome Graham.. We didn't need a fcukn mop like Latimoron.. We already got rid of him once... These knuckle heads running this club astound me.
We have to get this click out of our club. Mary, Hornby, The Youngs, maybe when they Oust Doust, the new broom gets the job done..
Wishful thinking I'm afraid. There's a production line of old boys ready to step in.
Ok, i will go against the grain here.
Packer pissed off for more $$$. Good luck to him i say.. Did his time, the club helped him in his rehabilitation etc etc...
Latimore has been very good for us. Yep, he's been around, but he has been great off the bench along with LAM. In fact Latimore has surprised me. Can bend the line, has an off load, solid in defence and has experience. He;s no dud...
No way we could have kept Packer and sign Graham.
Graham has proven his worth, being heavily subsidised by the Dogs, and a leader of men.
Club has made some shite calls over the past years, but letting Packer go for the money he wanted and bringing Graham into the fold isnt one of the clangers.
Packers form towards the end of last season was not that great and he hasnt really done much better at the tigers.
He certainly isn't worth the reported 800K a season, that Wests apparently signed him for.
Because packer wanted to go.
And his form has dropped big time anyway.
Old fudge has gone soft.
Great, if he reads this and rips us a new one you’re in the bin mate.
I'll let him know that you recon he soft.
So it turns out that young Sailor was promoted to the top 30 at the 11th hour.
Millward confirming they were chasing 3 backs, none of which could get am early release.
What is more interesting is the desire to sign an outside back. Its becoming clear that this is Nighty's last hoorah, but more importantly, does this mean an entire shift of our backline?
With Nighty retiring (not confirmed) I would have thought that his wing would have been filled by one of Mann, Lomax or Herbert. Obviously, McGregor isnt committed to these 3 players and wants a ready made player.
Lots of new hype around young Saab with a 4yr deal to which first 2 as a DP then top 30. I guess this would equal the rumour of Nene departing at the end of 2020. However, where does Lomax fit in here, Fullback, Centre or Wing? My guess is at centre in place of Aitken who would move to the bench utility role, but where does that leave Mann?
I see a lot of change coming next year and especially in 2020 when our squad will look entirely different to what we know today.
Softer than a marshmellow ................... annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, l'll meet him at the back of the dunnies and tell him to his soft face!
The way Mann gets all the odd jobs, it wouldn't surprise me if he's the fall guy and gets punted if we need to cull one player.
You live in the gold coast don't you.
Russ said he was looking forward to a holiday lol
I dont know whats happening behind the scenes, but Mann have been shafted big time.
Signed as a 1, dropped after 2 games, has since been used everywhere in the backline, in the forwards and spent a great deal of his talent sitting on the bench. During this period, over the past few years, we have had players out of form ( early on Aitken, Lafai, and even Nene ) been given a free run in the star up side. Let alone this year with Flo.
Why would he not leave. ?
Maybe Mary has plans for him in 2019, but he is a keeper for mine. Speed, great step, high work ethic, a great finisher...
What do people think of our ISP player Jordan P. He seems to be killing it there. Any opnion of him making it to first grade
I don't want Mann punted. My only complaint against him is that he can be a ball hog much like Aikten. Reluctant to pass.
