    <p />MANLY could welcome back departing skipper Matt Orford if his lucrative move to English Super League club Bradford falls through.

    Orford will be sweating on the deal with Bradford going ahead.

    If it falls through, Manly's offer could revert to an earlier (lower) one. Ox's bargaining chips are diminished. It would be rather bad news for him.

    And I have only just discovered a max of 5 overseas players in the ESL, hence the wrangle with Walker who was to be the fifth.

    He said no to Manly for the $300k so the new offer should be no more than $200k and then extend young Forans with the rest

    It's true. He will be a gem in the slower ESL. I rate him as one the NRL's top halfbacks, in ranking, you could make him - say, for arguments sake - third best. But he a slightly distant third.

    But it will still mean Premierships in England.

    Bradford would be sweating too, a chance to get the ol' Manly team back together.

    Hey... check out Orford's new mates...

    Weidler reads this site and others for some of his sources I reckon. Little whisperings on forums etc become inside news and then by extension get bigger. I dint think there is any truth to it
