    He will go well in the rain. Noone will want to go near a soggy sao...

    Great news, I am excited even though I have never seen him play, in fact Ihave never heard of him.

    Kiwi Eagle could probably give us a bit of a hint on this guy. KE?

    Some fine talent there that's for sure, my only concern is our back row is covered for a few years yet.
    And If Stewart re-signs for 3 years, how much patience does Gutherson have?

    Jake and Ligi being front rowers will get there chance with a bench spot at some period.

    A healthy position to be in none the less.

    Good that we are getting some youngsters in forward pack. Have never heard of him though cause the only TC i ever watch every so often would be the Sea Eagles. But good to sign a youngster whose got big reps on him and hopefully fulfills them and been a Kiwi won't miss time for Origin if he gets to that level which is a bonus too

    Sao's a fresh signing I'm a bit concerned Sao could crumble under Preasure.

    Seen a fair bit of this guy in action, still has a way to go (obviously at his age), but really could be anything with a big off season under his belt and learning from some of the best. Picking up some real good young guns, exciting times.

    Sao survived a Shark bite the other week - so should fit in well with the Mighty Manly Men of the Peninsular:D

    The more I think about it the more I think this signing of Sao is a CRACKER.

    It will add some flavour to our attack.
    Put some STARCH in our go foward.
    Put some bite in to our pack.

    Sao didn't want to leave Warriors but Manly buttered him up
