    Apparently unsigned for next year and unwanted….he was NSW Cup player of the year in 2013….would think his attitude and desire would change a bit in a sea eagles jersey….would need to bulk up a bit in pre-season because he doesn't look that big for a prop…just wondering whether he would be better than any of the other front rowers we have recruited….

    He is unsigned and unwanted for a reason - he is an ordinary player. We would have kept Gower than buy Shackleton

    Lawrence, Horo, Bryant, Rose, Galuvao etc, need many more examples of ordinary unwanted guys ?

    Tookey just has a hard on for Gower. The Shack would go ok i reckon. Not sure what his problem is? Maybe he is a ****ty trainer or a complete wanker. He'll go up a rung on the cool guy ladder if he fights Ferguson and smacks him though!

    I think we have purchased enough front rowers. Pretty sure he is getting on a bit and has hardly been setting the world on fire in the last 2 or 3 seasons. That is not to say he could not go well but I think the odds are against him.

    KE you have obviously not watch shackleton play in the past two years. He makes Gower look like SBW.

    He is pretty slow these days and doesn't offer much. If he did then Manly would have signed him up on a second tier contract.

    Not in the same class as horo, Bryant etc

    I could tell you to google it but i'll help you out rookie.

    8. Brenton Lawrence

    15. Josh Starling

    18. Ligi Sao
    19. Jake Trbojevic

    That's 8 and that's a pretty solid NSW cup front row too.

    I saw enough of him a couple of years back to think he could offer something on minimum coin

    Not saying we should sign him but I wouldn't be writing him off

    It's going to be weird not seeing Kitey and George there next year. Sad losses, they deserved to finish their careers in Manly colours but it's the price payed to keep at the top of the tree unfortunately.
