    It was said more in jest than knocking it. But go ahead and be precious like many others on here of late.

    61 tackles in a game if it wereng for smith he would be the best in the game. Do what you can to keep him, you'll be surprised how much we miss him if he goes.

    Hooker is such a vital role and Ballin nails it everytime, perfect passes and great direction our first try last week was all his vision and quick crisp ball to Brett

    That's right - even the players who we signed up after Des (such as T-Rex) are apparently off contract.

    I heard that Manly have abandoned contracts all together. Now your free to come and go as you please.

    I said in another thread that we might struggle to afford him.
    He's easily a 400k a season player now.

    $400k for a hooker I doubt it unless he is goal kicker.

    Offer him $260k max for 3 years, btw he is close to my favorite player.

    You are kidding right? 260k would be an insult.
    He's a two time premiership winning hooker and would be the 1st choice QLD no.9 if that grub wasn't around.

    I noticed and was the only one to have him in the 3-2-1 this week. He doesn't regularly make the runs like De Gois or maybe even L'Estrange (and to be fair we don't have a bench player like that coming into the receiving role) but he is an absolute rock. Who would replace him???

    With the pressure we seem to have with the cap, any chance anyone seeing the club letting him go and trying Buhrer as hooker?

    That's not a bad option but can he make the tackles that count? Matty is an unsung hero in the squad imo and am yet to be convinced we have the right type of replacement.
