    And the nonsense continues

    RLW reporting Warriors to throw huge money at Matai and Isaac Luke despite both being under contract.

    Can't see Matai going anywhere but Luke wouldn't suprise me with there depth at hooker

    This one is plausible as Matai's family are all over there.
    He deserves the monies and the comfort of being at home in NZ :angel

    Blair and Satini may have been recruited wirh this in mind. In fact, Jorge would be a great Matai clone at #4 :)

    Just musing, how focused would Manly be in 2014, if Matai and Kingy were added to the Gifty Farewell Tour :)

    And if the rumours are true about Hurrell (spelling?) to the Rabbits, who knows? They'll have a good replacement in Matai. I'd even say an upgrade of extreme magnitude.

    Re his family: his wife and kids are here with him. She's an Aussie, kids born here. His home ain't nz anymore.

      If we lose Matai we will struggle to make the top 8 I won't allow it to happen lol.

        I didn't know you had that sort of power TC.
        If I had've known that, I would have asked you to pull a few strings for Gifty. ;)

        Unless we receive a big compensation package for releasing him it won't happen as he is already under contract beyond next year.

        In the Salary Cap era Glenn does not fit in to my future plans.

          Re the family - I had his disabled brother, Maika in mind - in the care of his aging parents.

          Whatever Matai decides is fine by me, as he has given his all to Manly and deserves to be paid overs by someone :angel:

            Yeah every player is either coming off contract or in the process of seeking an extension or i will leave---- it is a yawnfest.

            May as well only sign one year contracts as it offers the same amount of speculation as a 4yr contract with less headaches if the player needs to be moved on in a hurry lol.

                Andrew John's had one of the biggest back ended deals during his career.

                    There, that should cover it.
