    NOt sure mate...the above is the only info provided to me.

    That said, George Rose was on the Sunday Footy show, and when asked will he be at Manly next year, the quote was:-

    "Yeah mate, I think so".

    George then went on to say life is tough at present, and he can't wait to get back for us to show what he can do.

    I really hope the big fella is with us next year, he was by far our best bench player before he got injured. Has the Beaver made a decison yet?

    Now that we have lost Monnas and burns we need to sign a half back/5/8 to cover orford as well.

    The Warriors are letting Gatis go. He looks a likely player.

    I like the look of Brett Seymour as a back up for orford.

    Also on the signing news we have signed a young islander front rower from Kebra Park High, Kenny Edwards is his name.

    I hate to criticise one of our own, but if Matai falls off the list it wouldn't worry me. I just can't see how we are going to get any value out of signing him for 3 years. Every week it is the same rehash of how he will cut out the rubbish, improve his defensive lapses and stay away form the judiciary. Right. He leaves the game yesterday and we put it all together. Enough is enough.

    Further to that, can anyone recall Matai scoring on a long break? does he have speed?

    He made two huge breaks against the Dragons at Brookie last year.

    Hasn't done anything similar this year, but he hasn't really played enough either.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: When he left the game, the possession was 65/35, at the end of the game, it was 53/47. I would say that is the main factor

    He seems to have a bit of speed, not top line though like the other backs. He seems to combine well with Robertson though which is the most important thing, and also seems to be developing a good offload to go with it

    Hope when he has the surgery on the bulging disc in his neck he can have a really good run of games and continue the improvement

    Does anyone know if this union player that is supposedly coming our way, still coming?? And I thought that I read somewhere that at the 10 year reunion against drugcastle there was going to be another player anouncement?

    I'm beginning to wonder where all this money is coming from to sign these players!
