      I wasn't picking a team necessarily just putting current contracted players down in their positions .... so how does that make me optimistic?

        If snake retires along with Matai this is my backline.
        1.Trbojevic
        2.Taufua
        3.Walker
        4.Brown
        5.Wright
        6.Koroisau
        7.DCE
        I would be looking to sign a winger or two. And a back up centre. And a decent back rower. Doesn't have to be an international just a solid player like Lovett or Thompson for eg. I think Taufua might be asking for a bit of coin. Better wingers out there and I see Matt wright as a solid back up player

        Isn't it funny how late last week we bought Wright on a 3 year contract and then a few days later Jamie announces his retirement.

            Yeah I hope he isn't planned as our long term centre. He is a good player, and will provide good depth but I think we need to replace a strike centre like killer with a strike centre most likely walker

              You know, if we go by those already at Manly we might not even have to sign anyone. Yes we probably will try and sign an established strike player, but if we didn't our backline could look like:

              FB - Tom Trbojevic
              WG - Jorge Taufua
              CE - Matthew Wright
              CE - Steve Matai
              WG - Brayden Wiliame
              FE - Dylan Walker
              HB - Daly Cherry-Evans (c)

              I don't know why people want to move Walker back to the centres so quickly. Yes he is a very good centre, but lets see how he goes for this year at 5/8 when we have a regular line up and as his confidence grows before calling his move to pivot a failure and moving him to the three-quarters. And besides, he's not doing too bad as a running 5/8. People need to remember he wasn't signed to be a play maker, though it would be good if he developed that side of his game because if we have a situation again where DCE is out for any period he's going to need to step up.

              After Skivy goes I can see Jorge moving to centre and another winger coming in on the left. But I don't think that will happen until 2018.

              Tom is the obvious choice as Snake's replacement and I have doubts whether Snake will continue in 2017.

              People might be surprised that I've included Wiliame, but he's not that bad and its really just been some back luck that until Monday he hadn't won an NRL game. I wouldn't say that he has been the sole reason that he was 0-13. He's ok under a bomb, has decent speed and as a winger his lack of defence can be hidden somewhat. Other than he's not a goal kicker, is he any worse an option than Gutho would have been had we not let him go?

                have you been watching Brad Parker play? Parker, Lavaka & Satini are also good back up backs and of course Lewis Brown off the bench

                  I can see Brett Stewart retiring soon, but I suspect Matai has a year or two in him yet. Besides he loves the game and wont leave easily. But I do see Walker in the centre next year alongside Matai. My team

                      If you think 3 players in the high to very high price bracket are going to retire, and that we will replace them with bargain specials, you are a moon howling, slack jawed, lip dribbling, blithering parra fan.

                      Bozo is already in negotiations with their replacements, and at least one of them will be a Rolls Royce. Contracted or not.
