I think he could be our recruitment 'find' for 2016, despite all the negativity, for a few reasons: 1. With Gutho gone (assuming Killer is 5/8) he is our first specialist reserve back. That means a lot of NRL. 2. West Tigers are hopeless. Look at how well Blair is playing after leaving to join a strong club. 3. He came cheap. Surely on not much more than than a second-tier contract. 4. He was a potential superstar before injury. Granted, that was while ago now, but Manly must be confident his injury problems are behind him. A new club will do him the world of good. 5. He has plenty of NRL experience and will be very motivated. Far more valuable to our roster than LIttlejohn. Relative to the amount paid, he's might well be our best-value recruit so far. Like you, I'm disappointed to see Gutho go. But we have enough cover in the backs.
