    If we were to let Williamson go, then Brown would be a good fill for him

    His favourite song is 'smack'. very Newcastle. How many tries has this wonder kid scored? Why would we let Willo go, don't you realize the modern game is all about defense.

    FMD, the discussions have hardly commened, let alone he play one solitary game for us and we have this "rubbish" assessment.


    Why dont you astonish us all and let us know exactly how many games youve watched him play in with an analysis of his football qualities.

    I think he'd be a good pick up... because of his versatility. Once he gets into manly colours he'll be right.

    He's not the worst going around. Happy to have him come over.

    I've watched a fair bit of the Knights & he never seems to stand out. He's a capable, solid first grader with probably a few more ball skills than Willo.
    Under different coaching he may develop into something but from what I've seen, I'd rather Burns stays.
    I'd be interested to see how & why Manly would use him. We have no need to buy these types of players that merely stop a young player that we've developed from getting a run in 1sts.

    Yeah, stupid old bugger he is.

    No, but he's no superstar & he's not ours. I'd rather a bloke with representative potential, that we've put the development into gets the shot.
    I wouln't want him keeping Groom, Meaney, Neumann, Cuthbo or any other of our locals (or almost locals) out of the team.

    best thing about his is his versatilty, especially if Lyon develops into a rep 5/8, he would be handy at the club say on the money Travis is on now, rather than the money Travis wants.

    We already seem to have a few of these sort of 'versatile' players. Why buy them in is the question?

    Why get rid of a prven manly player in Willo to sign someone who can essentially do the same thing?

    I can't imagine Willo wanting much, he wouldn't be very much value on the open NRL market.

    i would expect willo is up for his superannuation contract and will head overseas anyway. He is near the end of his career and having not been a superstar could probably do with a few extra $ before he retires.

    Sooky, please find a more "appropriate" answer for you below:

    1) Why does he need to play for Manly before i form an opinion on him?
    2) He has played quite a bit through the 04/05 seasons when the Knights had heavy injury tolls. He is a toiler at best, can defend, no attack.
    3) Why are you such a sook?

    I actually think Riley Brown is the opposite to what you say DVS Matt.

    I think he can attack very well... he finishes alot of movements by backing up well, he is good for quick darts out of dummy half and can set up a try.

    I think his downfall is his defence. Coming across to Manly should help him tighten that up.

    So thats your in depth analysis of a players talent is it ?

    Its hard to be a sook when I feel compelled to challenge a dropkick like you who favours, sounding more important than you really are by denigrading others including players you know little about.

    Ok, we are going to play a guessing game :lol:

    I'm trying to think of the bloke that played for the knights for a while... plays union now... he played five eighth for the knights for a good season or so after matty johns left the club??

    If you can think of his name.. I think he would be a good buy for anyone.
