    Darcy Lussick is so on the outer at Parramatta it appears there's no way back. At one point those close to him say he wasn't paid, an odd thing given Parramatta's willingness to splurge in recent times.

    Lussick is in demand, but he is likely to head back to Manly next year. Those close to him feel the Eels are trying to push him out this year through a breach of contract. He had scheduled a dinner with Daly Cherry-Evans one night, only to be told shortly before he was to meet DCE that he had an Eels function to attend, and that he would be in breach of his contract if he didn't go. The same message was given to him about arrival times before a game. He was required to arrive three hours before kick-off.

    Lussik was shovelled into NSW Cup without the fuss associated with Chris Sandow – and duly copped a four-game suspension. Things could not be going worse and Manly is not an option this year as they can't squeeze him under their salary cap.

    We'll maybe we'll get him a little cheaper for next season...

    Jesus but parramatta are a low bunch of arseh*les, from the lowest supporter to the board of directors they're just sh*t human beings.

    *I just realised I bought into a Weirdler speculation article, the very same thing I'd argue vehemently against if it was about Snake or Killer.. Need to think about this a little lol..

    Bags of cap next year. I'd like to see him back home one day.

    Swapping Foran for Lussick makes sense for both clubs. Eels can back end the difference into the rest of Foran's deal and Manly would have some cap space left to buy another player this year.

    Pretty sure there will be a few let go at the end of the year.

    Hope not if we front up with the same pack plus Myles and a rookie 6+7 it will be worse than this year.

    Ahhh memories. Seems like only a couple of months ago we were wallowing in the horror in that we didn't have any forwards on our books!

    How are BJ and Starling the same pack?

    I am guessing you must have missed that between them they have played 50 minutes of football this year.

    and since you are struggling, they were the starting props for 2014, when we finished the year equal first.

    Both BJ and Starling have shown in the past they possess good motors. If the interchange rule change is accepted as granted, they will go well.

    ...I hope it's not on the sort of coin the Squeels were paying him. But then again, we wouldn't have that sort of space under the cap.

    Possible shift to the halves at this rate.

    Yeah the same guy's that couldn't last the season once teams decided 2 take us right up the middle those 2 reserve graders you mentioned went 2 water. 50 minutes is 2 much for me hopefully with the recruitment drive we are allegedly on we will get some first grade forwards and not a bunch of cast offs and space wasters.

    Just on this BJ to halves wouldn't work as he is totally incapable of passing.

    Lurker is saying Lussick is a done deal just not announced yet. Interesting.
