    Off-contract Manly backrower Joe Galuvao is adamant he's happy for the Sea Eagles to slow down his negotiations if it helps the club retain their bevy of young stars.

    Some fans never realised why we signed Joe. He is important to our culture. Oh yes, and by the way, he can also play the game.

    He is a real quality part of our club. Even if we can't keep him on the park it would be nice if we could find something off the park for him. Guys like himself and Kite play a very big part behind the scenes with the younger members of the squad

    Would you say Big Joe's our version of Ruben Wiki?

    I've heard that during Wiki's last years @ the Warriors the younger Maori's and Islander's he took them under his wing and more or less told them what was expected of them.

    IMO he is worth a contract with how he is playing. He wont cost us a fortune, will be be great till someone like Cunningham is ready or we find another player ready to step up. Most importantly why wouldn't we sign him with the sort of footy he is playing.

    What a Champ! And all this selflessness from one of the real standouts in the side.

    Souths shafted him, as did the Eels and he didn't want to come here but the guy has been terrific for us and for him to come out as say what he has tells me that the club has a good culture.

    Good onya Joe, players like you are are rarety and are welcome at the club, it's a pity we didn't sign youn 3 or 4 years ago.

    Joe's proven he's willing to put the teams interests before his own.Nice to see a bloke who shows some loyalty and is not just a mercenary.

    Probably couldn't go that far, Wiki is like a good for the young islander boys

    In our squad Kite will be a closer role to that, but Big Joe is a great influence

    Mercenary is how I describe JWH. Its now not hard to see Joe as more valuable to the side over the next 12 months that JWH would have been. Better financially too I would guesstimate !

    What a credit guys like Big Joe are to the game. He deserves so much more for his contributions to the game over the years instead of some of the grubs running around these days. He's put himself into the Ben Kennedy class in my opinion. His time with Manly may be short but it will be memorable and go down as another club legend.

    Amazing what a year makes!
    Last year, and the off-season, poor old Joe was lucky to keep his walking stick. Too old, too slow, too everything. This Forum wrote him off at every available chance!
    Six games into the season, it's "Look out Lordy - there's a bloke here who equals you!"
    Thank Gawd it's Easter!

    Got hand it to the Coach, who believed in him and turned his footy career around and now we want to put him on the pedestal next to Ben Kennedy.

    Don't get me wrong - I, too, reckon the guy is playing great footy.
    But let's not go overboard on the guy you guys wanted to crucify (pun intended) all last year.

    Joe was always a tryer I wouldn't put him on the Cross level by any means

    Hopefully you will be getting a contract for next year too, Joe.
