    Looks like Mauro will be the next forward to leave the club.

    MANLY'S grand final premiership-winning forward Vic Mauro has had an offer to play in the English Super League next season.

    Mauro is under contract for next season but will look at extending his career by checking out the English offer, which gives him the choice of several interested clubs.

    "I am a Sea Eagles junior and wouldn't want to leave but if I can secure a few seasons in England I would look at the offer," Mauro said.

    Yeah - fair enough. He's a bit of a toiler. Make the most of it Vic. Thanks for the GF mate.

    Maybe he has the same manager as Brett Stewart?

    Much like Oldfield going to The Roosters, I don't think this disrupts the club too much, BUT, you could almost make a full team since last years GF ! Actually, I'll make it 18 months LoL:

    01. Will Hopoate
    02. Michael Robertson
    03. Dean Whare
    04.
    05. Michael Oldfield
    06.
    07. Trent Hodkinson
    08. JWH
    09.
    10. Darcy Lussick
    11. Tony Williams
    12. Shane Rodney
    13. Daniel Harrison

    14.
    15. Lama Tasi

    Nope, he's ok. He's a toiler (hard worker). How is that a criticism?
    Wow, re-read it mate. I just don't think his departure will leave a massive hole in our team.

    Also, he's not going to a competitor. I say rip the poms off as much pounds as they can get. It's also the reason their International side is ****. Seriously, it's why the "exiles" team flogged them.

    He's a hard worker who gets stuck in. Solid prop.

    I want him to stay. Solid player, a local junior and (winning) GF experience. We can't really afford to lose too many of them so quickly.

    i'd like to see a team made up of players who've left sine we won 40-0, i think that would be a handy team(not forgetting a coach & support staff)

    It would sad to lose Vic. Every club needs these guys.
    He's no superstar but he always does his job, rarely gets injured and being a local he's been around the place forever.

    I am a little concerned about how many locals are leaving. Culture seems to be a buzzword at the moment and these guys are where it comes from. It's nice to have guys in the team that you know were on the hill supporting the team before they were playing in it. There has to be a bit of a psychological advantage to it.

    At a guess he'll be heading to Hull FC.

    Sam Moa (oddly from Tonga) is heading back to Aus.
    They'll just make him declare to play for Italy so it doesn't take a spot on there international quota

    you all say these players wont be missed but depth has kept manly in the hunt this year and some of these players have been moved on to help the money problem, so please lets not pull these fringe players apart because they will be missed

    Good luck to Vic. Grab the money when you can, mate. Gain experience and then come back a better player.

    Umm, what?
    I can't find where i said that and it would be strange that i would say that as i agree with you.

    I think i said pretty much the opposite in fact.

    Have another read and see how you go.

    Losing alot of players with at least some experience we are this year, we are going to have to replace them in the top 25 squad and you don't won't too many rookies at once and having local juniors playing for Manly is a great thing i think.

    Also it's more expensive to sign players from other clubs generally than keeping your own as your own players are more likely to take less to stay at Manly than trying to convince someone to come to us
