    Josh Mansour is off contract at the 'riff. Would be a handy winger once Turbo switches to fullback.

    Thoughts?

    Has been injury prone in recent years and apparently has an attitude problem - a la James Roberts

    Great talent though @:cool:

    Rather get a hulking Fijian newbie - maybe Manly could foster the Pacific Island talent pool :)

    I'd have him at Manly. As long as there are no chronic injuries lurking, he would be great. A winger with raw aggression and good speed that brings the ball back with gusto.

    I said it in another thread, you don't win premierships by buying expensive wingers

    Cowboys - Feldt - Winterstein
    Souths - Tuquiri, Johnston (developed)
    Roosters - Tupou- RTS (both developed)
    Storm - Waqa, O'Neill
    Manly - Robertson, Hopoate (developed)

    Poorly run teams spend a heap on wingers like Newcastle with Uate

    Pick up a youngster like Brenko Lee, J Bowen, R Jennings, G Jennings, C Taylor or K Moss

    If that is the range then I'd agree to give it a wide berth. I would have thought 300k would be max.

    Mansour still has a lot of mistakes and errors in his game. He is not worth Marquee winger wage imo.
    Survey Baz would know the best young up and comers at Penrith, are the Jennings Bros anygood?

    Agreed on the youngster front, a gosl kicking wing is crucial though. Sides these days underestimate the use of having good goal kickers. Each team should have 2-3 quality kickers, look at the Broncos and Cowboys.
    Broncos: Parker, Kahu, Hunt
    Cowboys: Thurston, Feldt, Coote

    Yep and now you have named the 6 good ones from last 15 seasons you have justified my point.

    But I will reeview the 90%, might be more like 98%.
