    Api is a good player and good short term option but he's missed a tonne of games over the last few years. Fainu is who they should throw money at. With the Trbo's and DCE, they might struggle to match an offer for Fainu.

    If they sign Api, hopefully it's a cheap short term deal and they better have a good backup option and it better not be Lichaa.

    Well he's an upgrade on Lichaa, but that's hardly a glowing review.

    After we let Cook go i would be happy with Api or Matt Purcell! Missed out on a Brailey brother from Sharks. We need a hooker who not only van tackle but pass & be creative in attack! Lichaa is the worst hooker we have had in 45 years! Especially payong $300K per year for 5 years! Up there with T-Rex worst buy & expensive etc!

    Any upgrade I am all for even if it's for next year only. These last 4-5 years we haven't had a hooker at all, just crap filling in for one. Sad joke really, one of the most important positions on the field.

    I 100% agree with this. Api has had a horror run of injuries in the last 2 years.
    Fainu is a super talent and would spark our attack. He's the one we should be after if we are raiding Manly's hookers :smirk:

    As I mentioned in a previous thread, I'd be happy with Koriosau if Wakeham remains in the halves

    Api played 13 games last season and has played 14 this season, and will maybe miss another month or more with 8 games left.

    Missing roughly 20 games in two seasons is concerning. Especially when he has dealt with a lot of foot and knee injuries.

    I’d say that’s the reason we’re supposedly chasing Api though, Manly know who they’d rather have and could cut him loose to ease salary cap pressure and lock up Fainu.

    He looks the goods though (Fainu), doesn’t he!

    I don’t understand how we can’t sneak a note under Fainu door ‘350k’ he’s only on 120 right now

    I’d take Api though

    I think he's good mates with Suli and a few others. Would be very hard to pry him away.

    Damn if only you creatively elaborated more on this, they wouldn't have had to write an article.
