    The silly season appears to have begun with all the merry go rounds beginning like the Hooker saga and now the Foran and Moylan/Cartwright to begin. Here's some of my predictions for off season signings.

    Lolohea to Storm
    Matulino to Manly
    Matagi to Manly
    Uate to Manly
    Bird to Knights
    Fensom to Dragons
    Cook to Sharks

    Tupou possibly to Manly
    Buhrer possibly to Newcastle

    Agree, only signing I don't want is Daniel Tupou, he just isn't manly worthy IMO

    Errr. Did you mean Buhrer possibly to Newcastle. Or are you suggesting that Manly's recruitment people finally get their brains back on track and offer Buhrer an extended contract

      Nah man Tupou is more likely to get his form back then Uate is. If it's a choice between the two Tupou right away.

        Yes but I'm stuck on the fact that Darius Boyd returned to form after being poor at Newcastle with a poor side there. I think Uate could do the same. Boyd was not wanted by Broncos fans and look at what he's become again. The thing I don't like whatsoever is that buhrers name has even been thrown up into the air with a possible swap to Newcastle. Pathetic the way we've been treating some of our players that put their body on the line week after week. If manly do infact release him you can expect me to get a few more of those dummy spit ratings that's for sure

          Harry, if you don't think someone is good enough to play first grade, say it. But calling footballers a "disgrace" doesn't do a kid of your intelligence any credit. Leave that level of disrespect to some of the miserable buggers on this site that never played the game.

            Would love to see Matulino and Matangi at Manly. Matangi is very underrated. Great replacement for Vave.

              I think I would prefer Bodene Thompson, over Matulino though..
              We have a pretty good Prop roster.
              Bodene would look great behind DCE's right shoulder .

                Harry, I am not disagreeing with your assessment of him, just think you can express it without personal disrespect ....

                  I disagree, Matulino didn't fit in with the style of forwards the Warriors have currently got, like the Mannering and Hoffman types, he plays well with a big yet skilful forward pack beside him and some players that can utilise on his freak offloading ability. In saying that I do agree with what you said about bodene although personally I have reserved the future second row position for Jamil Hoppa

                  Right, well apparently I've forgotten how to read. Woops will make it nicer now. Disgrace is a horrible term to be met with, and if I felt that he wasn't worthy of the manly jersey then the only people I should have been calling a disgrace would have been the requirement department. My bad!

                    I don't know that much about Jamil
                    ? I hope he can fill that void.
                    I can't wait until Jake learns the offload! It one thing he lacks...
                    A good offload wins a game..
                    Watch some Corey Parker clips young man!

                      Harry, I'm not the protocol officer, you can tell me to get stuffed, many have. It's just my opinion, and something that was reinforced through years of hanging around good footballers, very few ever openly disrespected other footballers. (unless it was personal)

                        Jake would be lethal with some offloads In him!

                        As for Jamil, well he is an absolute bulldozer and if he can adjust to the NRL and still play close to as tough as he does in the lower grade then we will be the most intimidating pack in the NRL, especially if Matulino is signed. Both Hoppa and Tapau on each side would be something special if he does play similar than he currently does.

                          Yeah but in all honesty ...Whenever our forwards bent the line was there EVER anyone pushing up in support??? No! Just Browns bloody cows hanging back waiting for the next play. I have a feeling Jake has a great offload in him - he's got great hands but he can't pass to the invisible man.

                            Yup no one but Matt Parcell, if Parcell can stay on the field for longer provided no major injuries occur then maybe some of our other players will learn it too.

                            100% true!!
                            Except round 20 against rabbitoes.
                            We got away more offloads that first half (13) than we did in any game this year! Other than one.

                            Second half only 2 off loads
                            Guess what the game plan was that day...?
