    The Warriors are chasing Manly's Michael Witt as they look to find a solution to the five-eighths position.

    It's understood the 22-year-old half and accomplished goalkicker still has a year remaining on his Manly contract but the Warriors are prepared to take over his $200,000-a-year deal.

    For 200k they can have him.

    Well pay for his plane ticket over there. Could do with some freed up cash.
    Bye Bye Witty.

    There is a god.

    Intresting comment on fox last night stating that lyon was going to play 5/8 next year and Burns would move to the forwards presumably hooker.

    I wondr if to replace Dunners or Monnas? Not sure where this leaves Ballin through. Second row maybe?

    Warriors management are believed to have told Witt he would likely be the starting five-eighths next season and, while he's tempted by the offer, is hopeful of negotiating a two-year deal.


    Doesn't this mean they are talking to a player mid way through a contract, and isn't this illegal?

    I would say he would have permission Ryan

    He wouldnt be used much, would basically come over an play Bartercard Cup for the season. Rovelli is a star at halfback, fien is there as backup, and Ropati is going dan well at 6 too

    I am missing the point here, but why would they want to pay $200K for a back up player?

    If he IS on that, I bet a hell of a lot of it would be being subsidised by Parramatta.

    He wouldnt be on anywhere near that if he came over, they wouldnt have much free under the cap so i wouldnt take that price figure as legit at all

    Also, no expert on contracts here, but wouldnt manly still pay part of his deal, eg Payten being paid by 3 clubs at 1 stage

    the article said Cleary sees Ropati as a centre so by the sounds of it he would be given first crack at starting in the No 6.

    hmmmm very strange Garts, didnt read the article, but Mannering and Martin are going pretty well in the centres, maybe Martin will go to the wing

    I hate any player leaving our club, but in all honesty guys, I don't see MW as the future of this club. That's why Wells / Groom / Halden / Cherry should be fighting for the PL 1/2's position. All these players can play a large part in Manly's future.

    I really hope Groom continues to develop like he has. Word on him has been quiet this year???

    Jerome Ropati is the worst no.6 in the comp!!

    Witt would actually be an improvement there...

    In regards to the Fox comments... i told you all this at the start of the week when rumours were flying about mona's wanting to go elsewhere 8) 8)

    Well, I thought Monnas stood up last night, and our teams attitude was good, unlike last year hen "negotiations" were going on...

    Berkely - with that response, I'm making the assumption the acid hasn't worn off yet mate?
