    2V really has identified a body type in his recruitment - young, tall and muscular.
    Most of the 2014 newbies seem to be over six foot in the old scale and 95kg+.

    Maybe 2v just wants to make giants suffer in pre-season, and Donny is about 2v's height too:p

    His form tapered off after SOO , but he has a lot of potential. There were rumours back in June that he might be signing with Manly for 2015 and beyond (he's under contract until then , not that that seems to count for anything these days). There were also rumours of interest in Curtis Sironen as a ball-playing forward .

    Great if it's true Cam and what a pack we will have!! Imagine someone would have to leave for his salary to come onboard so maybe it's Wolfie???

    Jason King's experience up front is important at least for next year . There was talk of Wolfman signing a 2 year extension a couple of months ago. I must say I was a bit surprised when he copped on field verbal barrages from Killer and Snake during the finals. Normally a mistake results in teammates running in with backslaps and encouragement at Manly. The hair-pulling incident by Maloney seemed to rattle him more than it should have and it was obviously a part of the Robinson game plan. I'd like to see him get a chance for redemption after his grand final "howler".

    Manly could really use a strike forward like Jason Taumalolo . This guy would be a human wrecking ball under the Manly system. He's gone backwards development wise under the Cowboys coaching but that just means a better price tag .

    Doubt it, we do have a salary cap. if Woods were to go it would be Sharks then Dogs then Roosters.

    Doubt it. Can't see the Tigers letting their best forward go. We need to also make Jake T a decent offer if we want to sign him long term. Hopefully we have also given BJ a pay rise of sorts if we want to keep him firing. Would hate to be the least paid gun prop in the game.
    Would love to be wrong!

    As Forwards go, I think the following are the most important pieces:-

    Brenton Lawrence, Richie Fa'aoso, Justin Horo, Tom Symonds, Glenn Stewart, Anthony Watmough & Jamie Buhrer.

    Buhrer is especially important, because he plays both utility and forward.

    That being said, I couldn't see Jayden Hodges coming here to languish in reserve grade, so I'm almost thinking:-

    08. Brenton Lawrence
    09. Matt Ballin
    10. Richie Fa'aoso
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Justin Horo
    13. Glenn Stewart

    14. Jayden Hodges
    15. Tom Symonds
    16.
    17. Jamie Buhrer

    I really can't see Jason King coming back after ANOTHER full season injured. I'd love it, but no.

    That last spot is open to Sao, Jake T, Chee Kam, King, Lui, Hasson, Gower & others. We really, REALLY don't need Woods guys. It will cost us developing players. Players I don't want to lose.

    The other option is Hodges starts in reggies, and two forwards play (maybe King and Jake T.)

    I really think King needs 5-6 games in reggies to get match fitness.

    I recall talking to Tooves during the 2012 season, after there had been so much speculation about half the team leaving, including Foran. We had kept them all except T Rex, but Tooves was ruing the club's salary cap predicament, and said we could only afford to recruit very low cost players to cover for those leaving. He said it would actually get worse the next year (2013).

    The cap has increased of course, but I expect we'll have to continue the current policy of luring good bargains, rather than name players.

    (Unless one of our players on decent coin unexpectedly retires, of course.)

    Sounds logical. I think starling needs to be in the mix.
    Don't think he was signed to play NSW cup either

    He would be a 2015 signing at best due to our salary cap

    @Ryan one prop on the bench is just not enough.

    Having Hodges AND Buhrer makes no sense

    I'd like to see Buhrer, King and Wolfie given thank you cards and a retirement posting.

    That would be a great way to treat three premiership winning players.
