    from LU manly section

    "Another Manly players leaves.
    Chris Hicks has agreed to join Warrington. This is confirmed. Hicks agreed yesterday to terms, but has yet to formally sign a contract."

    a shame if its true but he is getting towards the older side so probably afer a big 3 - 4 year contract for 300K plus per year.

    Bani looks allright in PL and has a lot of flair. Also scores planty from high balls so isnt suspect under them.

    wingers are just guys who hang out with footballers...

    if its true, good on him, a winger his age wont get half that in the NRL.

    He has really provided something extra this year, especially taking some of the early tackles off the line. He has also made 9 line breaks and has been incredibly solid - he hasn't been a Scotty Donald that's for sure. Best of luck but to say he won't be missed is wrong at this stage.

    His linebreaks are priceless.. He is having a good year this year. I'm also of the belief he won't be all that missed.. I'd rather him be playing for us but it's no big loss IMO.

    We MUST have room under the cap !!!

    Willow would be on around $100k
    Hicks would have been on $100k
    Monnas would have been on $220k
    Burns would have been on $100k
    Dunley would have been on $100k
    Rose would have been on $50k
    Salary cap goes up $100k


    That's $770k minimum (I believe I have been conservative).

    Surely were are in line to sign a big name player.

    Josh Perry is poop.

    I'm actually hoping Matt King teams up with Orford / Bell.

    Imagine:-

    01. Brett Stewart
    02. Matt King
    03. Steve Matai
    04. Steven Bell
    05. Michael Robertson
    06. Jamie Lyon
    07. Matt Orford
    08. Jason King
    09. Matt Ballin
    10. Brent Kite
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Steve Menzies
    13. Glenn Stewart

    14. Clint Halden
    15. Josh Perry / Mark Bryant
    16. George Rose
    17. Glenn Hall

    He'll be missed. Hick's is reasonably solid under the high ball and does his fair share of working of the line. His defense is solid as well, but he's getting on and the money over there is just to compelling to pass up. Hope Bani is the goods for next year.

    Ill miss him more because he seems a good bloke and great clubman and good on him for getting that deal at his age.

    Im sure we will unearth a good up and coming winger from somewhere, in these salary cap days you cant afford to pay serious money for 2+5's

    Have to give some upgrades as well.

    Ballin, Cuthbo, Bani (he will play NRL next yr), Stewart 1 & 2, Watmough, Matai etc will get upgrades one would think.

    I dont think we can afford another big name signing tbh, maybe 1 $200k a year player but that would be it.

    Ryan, You've done it again.. good stuff. Matt King at wing for Manly is priceless.

    Ballin and Bani/Meaney will be up in firsts next year.

    Is willo/dunley/rose confirmed to be leaving??

    We have a team that can win the comp now... best thing to do is try and keep it like that. We have only lost players that can be covered by players already on our roster. We don't need to really buy anyone.

    Add Kite and probably even Halden to the upgrades list and we are yet to re-sign Hall who knocked back 70K for next year so he could prove himself for a better offer and with Rose gone he would be in a reasonbly strong bargaining position for 100K

    Thats 10 upgrades at 50K or so each

    Leaves us with 270K ie Josh Perry + a little

    Wingers are a dime a dozen. As long as they can cross the tryline, make a tackle and cost less than $100,00 pa I really don't care who wears the 2 and 5.

    Jennifer Hawkins and Alicia Molik may be upset at this news though.

    Wasn't Monnas on about $260k and Burns about $140k which would make me think Willo, Dunley and Hicks would of been on a bit more than $100k, So there might be a bit more there than you think.

    I love Willo. He always makes me feel secure when he's on. I wasn't aware that he was going.

    Ryan what makes you think King is heady our way?
