    Great news.

    Matai is a class player, lets keep him out of the judiciary.

    On an icentive contract I'd hope.  Injury and suspension free would be conditions.

    On an incentive contract I'd hope.  Injury and suspension free would be conditions.

    IMO a raised salary cap will not improve his offer or standing with the club. If Manly have a value on him that won't be altered by the cap increase. I wouldn't rate his chances of being resigned more than 50/50. But from what i have heard those odds were way better than they were before the start of the season.

    Those odds and the reports could be false trying to keep him believing he is wanted for as long as possible.

    Ernie - do you think that Manly would have increased their offer for Hodkinson with the cap increase or did they also have a value put on him no matter what the salary cap allowed them to pay?

    TBH he hasn't been that impressive in recent matches and I thought that he was pretty ordinary against souths (he was wrong footed badly for one souths try, he couldn't catch their hooker for a try and he doesn't take the line on) and it was only his two field goals that made any impression on the night.

    Would you really want Matai at another club? The guy has a lot of heart and a lot of skill. He hits hard, runs hard and his passion for the game often makes me hard. He always puts in. I'd hate to see him go anywhere.

    Well, quite a few people in the media said that Hodko was pretty ordinary up until the last 5 minutes as well, so maybe it is you that doesn't know what they are talking about?

    At this stage 150,000-200,000 grand would be a good price but we just couldn't justify matching the Dogs offer of 280,000.
