What. The. ****?
Even at minimum wage, that would have been ridiculous.
Why the **** did we want him?
R&R needs firing for even looking at him
unless he was DCE's backup
I bet we were not even looking at him, Its the same old trick, a journalist asks, "Hey were you looking at Finch" and someone sarcastically answers, "Only if we could pay him pretty much nothing."
i would have had him. He suits manlys style perfectly. He is a little limited in his skills but that is how manly play. He is tough, a great talker and has great experience
Its no use having a benji style player if the game plan doesnt allow them to showcase there skills
He would have given the backline confidence as well i reckon and with lyon and stewie in the team he would have looked a better player himself
DCE may be a long term solution but in 2011 he has a long way to go
Would have been a handy pick up at that price, but no big loss that we missed out on him. Hopefully Hicks can get himself a another year in the NRL, always thought he was a underated winger, just like Robbo.
Damm - it would have been Lowie's first signing of a first grade player.
on minimum wage he certainly would have been a good signing.
He has some talent and has actually played and contributed in a big way to winning a lot of big games
just read parra chasing chris hicks ,Â they have money now because of tahu..
50k for a premiership winner etc
With inexperinced halves i am not sure how you could have gone wrong
Would have been worth paying him $50,000 just to have him fill in while Matai is suspended at the start of the season, and as a good replacement for injuries.
theres no doubt he would have played five eight or half, although he has some weakness,s he would carry leadership, he talks, something manly missed last year in the halves, his kicking game is rubbish but his big match experience would have been handy. its a concern that manly are still pursuing a half though, maybe there isnt as much trust in DCE than we thought ?
Never liked him, however I definitely respect him now. Its about time someone stuck to an agreement, verbal or otherwise.
I find it a little hard to believe that Finch would of signed on for 50 grand...but stranger things have happened.
I only wanted him here while his dad was the ref's boss so we'd get a fair deal, some might say for a change, but now he's gone we don't need Finch Jnr at all in my opinion.
I guess it wouldn't have been bad if we got him - if DCE got injured, who'd be the back up?Â That's all he would've been if he signed the full time role on ch7.
And it is nice to see a bloke go through with an agreement for once.Â 2 years in cold England vs a full time tv role, part time footy role and based on the northern beaches?Â I love the snow but that's a no brainer!
So Lyon and co are reserve graders ?
Brett would have been a fatstic buy at the middle level price or below.There is no doubting he has a heap of experience and his style of play would have suited manly to a tee.Bringing with him an aggressive style with genuine toughness and a handy kicking game,great passing and anticipation,the outside backs would have had a field day.Combined with snake,Â the attack would have been pretty well balanced.IMHO......
Surely you can see 'irony' Kiwi. Â And it's not a cousin of Tony.Â And 'humble' it should be Rambofan.Â There was a reason why Finch was let go from Parra and The Storm, and it wasn't all about the money.Â
I would have taken him at that price personally
230+ games of NRL experience, and from all accounts a very popular guy that is good to have in a squad environment
