These 'blue chip' centres we missed out on played their first games for their respective new clubs last weekend. I did not see either game but listened to fair chunks on the radio. I did hear that Tahu was stood up badly by Pat Richards though he was hardly mentioned for much of the game. Joel Monaghan was not mentioned much, except that Paul Osborne did say how badly he finished last season. Early days yet but it seems that for the money they were asking Manly seem to have a better deal in Tezza, which also gives some time to develop younger players, look around the market for 2006!
