I'm interested to see if manly are still chasing a five eighth for next year? Previous we had chased Elgey and Ashley Taylor, Jayden Nikorima is set to sign with the Roosters (220k apparently) He would of been a great pick up. They also have Hastings on their books for 2016 -but that could change with the signing of Jayden. Canberra have a surplus of halves, Mitch Cornish being the obvious one on the outer. Then there is Mbye, who has put contract negotiations on hold until after the finals series - but he is asking for around 750k! He is also signed for 2016. Other halves coming off contract in 2016 are Jack bird, Blake Green, Corey Norman. I would of loved a bright young half like an Elgey, Taylor or Nikorima to be playing next year -especially for only 200k. There is talk of Jamie moving to 5/8 -but that would mean moving one of our best attacking players out of his favoured position and where he has been so valuable to manly when he is in top form - just look at the last few weeks. I'd rather many go after a specialist 5/8, but options are dwindling Hot property Moses Mbye to command $750,000 per season — NRL Market Watch Canterbury halfback Moses Mbye has placed contract negotiations on hold until after the finals period as yet another club joins the race for his prized signature. Foxsports.com.au can reveal four NRL clubs - the Dragons, Storm and Titans along with the Bulldogs - are chasing Mbye, who comes off contract at the end of next season The 21-year-old only made his NRL debut last year and has played less than 30 first-grade games. But due to a shortage in quality playmakers and viewed as one of the game’s brightest prospects, Mbye commands an asking price close to $750,000 a season. If the Bulldogs come to the party, it would take a ridiculous offer to pull him out of the kennel as Mbye’s preference is to remain playing under Des Hasler. Mbye recently revealed he would like to have a clause inserted into his next contract which would make him a free agent should Hasler ever leave the club. It’s a clause the club has baulked at, although it is yet to be discussed at any great length. Mbye’s manager, Simon Mammino, has held informal talks with the Bulldogs and acknowledges there has been interest from rival clubs although he would not comment on their identity. “We’re working through the process to get an outcome that’s good for both parties,” Mammino told foxsports.com.au. “We’re very mindful of the market rate and interested parties.” Foxsports.com.au understand the Gold Coast and Melbourne are two clubs closely monitoring Mbye’s movements. Privately, the Storm expect him to re-sign with the Bulldogs but should he not put pen to paper before the new year, they are likely to make a move with Blake Green and Cooper Cronk both off contract next year. St George Illawarra have also indicated they are interested in Mbye with Benji Marshall off contract next year. The young gun has been identified as his potential successor.
