    Rumours today that he wants out of the Sharks. Ain't happy with Dugan and Moylan (potential fullbacks) purchases as he was promised the position.

    I don't tend to believe this one but would we be interested? Unlikely given he could only really play wing for us unless we screw over Dufty.

    You would think Newcastle would be interested.

    I read that also, but i also read that he has thrown down the challenge to both Dugan and Moylan that the fullback spot is his.
    Dugan would replace Bird in the centres, and Moylan would replace Maloney, cant see the sharks weakening those positions AND losing Holmes....
    Media beat up id say.

    A lot of this hinges on what happens with Pearce I think. If he goes to Newcastle then I'd say Val will stay

    Flanagan said that Holmes was the Sharks fullback for the next 10 years. He said this having already signed Dugan. Pretty sure that was to reassure Holmes that the FB spot was his.

    Highly doubt he would be leaving so that Duges could play FB. We’re the only team stupid enough to play him at FB when centre is clearly his best position.

    It's possible if the Sharks sign Pearce but it's just speculation. There won't be much to it until that happens, or Holmes lines up not at fullback.

    The Sharks would have rocks in their head if they released Holmes. IMO he's a far better player than Moylan & Dugan put together. Also read the Roosters would only allow Pearce to be released if he went to a weaker club like the Knights and not a premiership force club. So I really can't see this Holmes scenario happening and just a media beat up.

    Holmes is a great winger but an average fullback. He’s the third best fullback at the Sharks.

    Holmes would transform our backline, screw over any of 1-5 to get him.

    Wont happen - Dugan will play centre and Moylan will play 5/8.

    If it was any chance of happening, I'd sell all our current back 5 to get him.

    We'll have him. Val on one wing, Mansour on the other and Ferguson in the centres. Any other stupid rumours.

    Not one single quote attributed to Holmes 'wanting out'. It's not even a good rumour especially when Flanno has already stated Holmes will be first choice FB(stated not long after Dugan was signed).

    Holmes has already been linked to the club in previous years, and has said no.

    The reason?

    McGregor.

    He won't come.

    The large number of players who said no to the club in a very short period of time.

    How can the Nulla Narks afford anymore players? (Pearce)
    Is Politis moonlighting over at the Narks?
    Pearce should go to the Knights, get paid overs and walk his dog along the beach.
