    You’ve got no idea, weren’t you the wanting to sign Lichaa for another year. Stay off the Kennel Michael and concentrate on finding another club.

    I don't need your advice.
    APi is shit.
    Manly lost their last game
    Api missed vital tackle when game was on the line the opposition scored the winning try.
    Api passes to Neville nobodies, into the sideline and into the ground.
    No thanks

    No we don't need him, I was previously on board with this signing but since then To'omaga has finally got a crack and continued to improve with each game while RFM has looked really impressive playing through the middle. Unless we still plan on releasing RFM then I don't see the point, we have already signed Britt and Stimson while Kalache will have another years experience and is potentially another option off the bench. Still have Ogden who tops our metres per carry in the forwards and more often than not had one of the quicker play the balls when playing firstgrade.

    We defenitely have enough to work with now as long as we actually do build off the back of this season and get our pre season right unlike the last two years. If we're signing someone it should be an impressive youngster or established player that can slot in and get the job done immediately..our starting middle third does need a shakeup though, not that keen on seeing Tolman/Napa/Elliott all starting together again next season.

    Unless Herman can reliably provide that enforcer role that Napa has failed to deliver on (until last game in patches) I don't see the point in his signature.

    I reckon we have to do the same with Ese Ese... the situation has changed and we look ok with middle forward rotation RFM and RT really showing us something now and Britt coming across for a bit of depth. I think Api could give us something a bit extra at 9, feel for JMK he is playing well. Need a centre!!

    Well said. To'omaga is starting to realise his potential and I'm loving RFM in the middle. Can't forget Ogden.

    Not sure about Britt maybe we are grooming him to replace Tolman in the future but I'd like to see us go for someone like Welch or Flegler for that role.

    Britt looks far better on the edge than through the middle, really can't see how he possibly fits in our best 17 unless a few injuries hit as he's really nothing special or different to what we have

    If I had to guess the make up of our forward pack and bench..

    8.Tolman
    9. Api (assuming we sign him)
    10 Napa
    11. Stimson
    12. CHN
    13. Jackson

    14. JMK
    15. To'omaga
    16. RFM
    17. Elliott

    I assume Pay would pick something like this? Surely you can't drop RFM and To'omaga, Elliott won't get dropped and I assume Stimson will go straight onto an edge because that's where he plays best...who knows with Pay though, he could still start Elliott and find spots for Britt and Smith lol

    As of last week. RFM still getting shopped around.

    Api has been given a deadline. We arnt matching what warriors offering, balls in his court.

    Herman still negotiating but leaning towards a No.

    If we're shopping RFM around then I honestly dunno wtf the club is doing lol. Bloke looks perfect through the middle and I can't believe it took this long to give him a shot there.

    JMK has improved really well and is saving us money there and will help his own value grow.

    If warriors are 150k up it’s hard to see how he would come to us.

    Manly are releasing him as they don’t want to pay his remainder, so they will want as much as they can get

    If he can get a gig in Sydney thus not have to move house, that $150k becomes less attractive.

    Plus the Warriors still has that “place where careers go to die” stench...
