    Luke Williamson
    Stephen Bell
    Mark Bryant,
    and Maybe Beaver

    since Manly seem to be signing a couple of good prospects in Baily and Williams from Parra
    It seems we are going in the right direction and hopefully shoring up Kieran Foran & Daly Cherry-Evans with a few more of the good prospects from from toyota cup
    it is looking real good for the future of our great club

    Luke is basically a pasenger, Bell hasn't fired for ages,Bryant hasn't seemed to improved in 2 years. Beaver will be a loss, but he would be ready move by the end of this year.

    The new signings seem good.

    I would keep Beaver for another year. Mind you, apart from Bell it wouldn't surprise me to see all the others back in 2009.

    I would keep Beaver even if it's just for the selfish reason of becoming the number one capped player of all time. It'd be a (yet another) great record for the legend.

    I hate to say it but I agree with everything Byso has said here, the planets must be in alignment or something :)

    Out of that list Beaver is the one that I think should play on (conditionally)

    Bell & Bryant are off contract so i think its necessary they move on for celery cap & generational change reasons.

    I think Willow signed a 2 year deal last year so he will probably be here. Wether thats down a grade i dont know.

    Halfasanga, Wells, Neumann are also off contract. Might be movement there.

    Luke Williamson is locked in for at LEAST 1 more year. I remember him saying he was contracted with us beyond this year I just can't remember how many years, this was on NRL on Fox about 2 weeks ago

    It was definitely a 2 year deal Nutz.

    So end must be 09.

    I'm pretty sure he is off contract end of this year.

    I really think he has great potential....just thinking back to that game against saints last year when he made that break and passed for Hicks...that was exciting stuff!

    Neumann signed a three year contract last year. He's locked up till the end of 2010 I believe.

    I wouldn't mind if we held onto Bryant for depth purposes, imo you can never has too many props, need good depth in that area

    Except when Des plays them in front of more worthy players - e.g. Glen Hall missing '07 GF

    Glen Hall missed about 10 weeks just before the Grand Final and was nowhere near fully fit. That was the reason for that decision.

    Glen Hall was injured in round 24 vs the warriors. Pretty sure he was still recovering from a dislocated shoulder at GF time.
