    Host was given very little opportunity over the last 2 years
    He has played pretty well in the last few games hes played
    Im sure he is relatively cheap as well and with good coaching i think he will end up excelling

    I disagree he has been given more opportunity than some others and had a fair few mistakes in him and ineffective

    He has always been an effort player even for 80 minutes which you can’t fault him for that but for edge back rower I have just seen him as a little bit of a lightweight for 1st grade and he would fear no-one

    I will admit he’s possibly improved his game in the the last couple of weeks in a team that’s been performing poorly but like half of the competition soon as someone’s off contract or possibly threat off being without a club the effort rises

    I could take or leave him, if we take it would have to be a bit cheaper as you say, watch and decide over the next 1 or 2 yrs is it regular 1st grade or regular reggies / back up for him
    I’ll leave that decision to Griffo

    I agree with all comments on Host.
    As a footballer I think he has loads of talent and I’m keen for him to stay.
    In saying that he has had numerous opportunities.
    In saying that he has been coached by a few wood ducks the past few years.
    In saying that he can find an injury pretty easily.
    In saying that he has been stuck behind a rep back row for a few years.
    In saying that Mary didn’t use him properly or played him out of position.
    In saying that if he did stay he would be cheap.
    In saying that if he stays he probably plays Reggie’s.
    In saying that, all the best at the Rabbits.

    He would be good value as one of the assistants as well as Garth Brennan.

    Host has suffered under poor coaching more that most. He’s never been able to settle Mcf**kwit constantly moved him around. Since he took over the left edge for a couple of weeks his form improved.

    he’s still only 23 I think he should definitely be retained for a couple of years.

    McGregor to Manly as Assistant Coach.

    Danny Levy's contract not renewed.

    McInnes to seek release and sign with the Sea Eagles.

    If he actually did leave to follow Mary I'd pack his bags. Daruis 2.0

    Surely not? Why would anyone want McGuber?

    McInnes still has another 2yrs to run on his contract I can’t imagine Saints would consider releasing him unless it’s a swap for AFB.

    Well Dessie will never be worried about being threatened about a job again.

    He would only need to worry if a bus was approaching

    Fake news as...he is out and out head coach. They only coach in history to be within 85 mins of a GF. it is in his bio. Pioneer!... of sorts. never to be spoken of or matched again.
    Go down as one of those jaw dropping moments in time that they keep playing over and over.
    Just like Cathy Freeman winning gold in 2000, Makybe Diva winiing 3 MC's in a row,
    Adam Scott winiing the Masters
    Mc85 coached a team to 85 from a GF, Dragons 11 premiierships in a row..
    Fits perfectly

    If true that would suck, but I do hope Mary gets a job. Would be nice for him to continue his apprenticeship under a head coach.

    Mary to Manly is one thing but McInnes wanting a release is something completely different. Unless it’s a swap for AFB I can’t see it happening.
