    + Des won't drop his toy boy in Bailey
    + Tony Williams will continue to get a run.
    + We won't be buying Cooper Cronk.
    + David Williams will be signing elsewhere.
    + Don't think Foran is over the line by a long way, and may be off as well.
    + Matai will be signing somewhere else very shortly.
    + B Stewart may only last a game or two...IF he is able to play for us.

    Apart from these things....good team. More likely:-

    01. Ben Farrar
    02. Micheal Robertson
    03. Dean Whare
    04. Jamie Lyon
    05. Tony Williams
    06. Keiran Foran
    07. Daly Cherry-Evans
    08. Jason King
    09. Matt Ballin
    10. Brent Kite
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Shane Rodney
    13. Glenn Stewart

    14. Chris Bailey
    15. George Rose
    16. Matt Cross
    17. Joe Galuvao (if he doesn't retire) If he does, the Buhrer or Lussick get a shot.

    with Will Hopoate getting a run, and maybe our NYC 1/2 getting a shot if Cherry-Evans can't deal with the big boys.

    Hodkinson - Bulldogs
    Tasi - Roosters
    Perry - St Helens
    Matai - Sharks
    Stewart - Retires (I really, REALLY hope not)

    Where do you pluck David Williams elsewhere from Ryan ? He signed for 3 years last year. Also where do you pull the Stewart retirement from ? As each day passes I am more confident we will see Matai staying. This is where I see us for 2011

    Stewart
    Robertson
    Matai
    Lyon
    Either Williams
    Foran
    Cherry
    King
    Ballin
    Kite
    Watmough
    Rodney
    Stewart

    Farrar
    Cross
    Galuvao
    Rose

    Ryan you forgot that Ballin is signing elsewhere, Hoppa is going on a Mormon mission and Watmough is also retiring...

    -Wheres wolfman going ?
    -My thoughts are that matai will stay, he loves manly
    -I must admitt that cronk was a dream
    -Could not see manly losing Foran at all, theyve already lost Hodkinson, i would riot if Foran was to leave !!

    Foran- you build the team around him-he ain't going anywhere.
    Stewart-even if his legal issues and medical goes his way, how much mental impact will that have?...Who knows???...could go either way.

    I share Ryans concern re Foran. WTF has stopped or prevented him from signing on the dotted line?

    AFAIK he has actually put pen to paper just not reported.

    I am not in panic stations this has happened and been reported time and time again year after year.

    Though it would make me feel better to have it confirmed

    He's worth 50 to 80K more than Hodko - did he get 300K a season over 3 years. I think not.

    I remember saying on MWSE that Hodkinsons departure was only going to play into Foran's hands, if he had not yet put pen to paper.
    His value to the Sea Eagles has gone up by 25% now that we have lost a half.

    Dude, I'm being 100% honest here that on one of The Fox Manly games this year, they mentioned Wolfman is off contract at 2010's end. If he's still on contract I'm pumped to be honest.

    We seriously need speed in our backline again.

    What I DO think, is Des and co. have to make a choice out of Farrar OR Bailey as our utility, and should let the other one go. My choice would be to keep Farrar.

    We also need to get Tony Williams out of the backline...

    BEST case:

    01. Brett Stewart
    02. Michael Robertson
    03. Steve Matai
    04. Jamie Lyon
    05. David Williams
    06. Keiran Foran
    07. Daly Cherry-Evans

    Where that leaves:-

    Tony Williams
    Dean Whare
    Will Hopoate
    Ben Farrar
    Chris Bailey

    is beyond me...

    Maybe Matai is making way for Whare???

    We are still going to have MASSIVE issues at 1/2 back though.

    Am 99% sure that both Robbo and Wolf were off contract last year and both signed for another 3 years.

    I honestly still have no issues with Tony Williams in the backline, he does some good work for us. None of our other wingers could have scored the try he did last weekend, and 5mins after that Souths made a long break and he managed to get back and stop Sutton passing and killed the movement

    I think we signed Bailey for 3 years, this being year 2, I wouldn't be sad to see him leave at years end and for Farrar to remain

    DCE, I am quite prepared to give the bloke his chance. I didn't think he was up to it in his 20s days, but have read some good reports on what he is doing for Sunshine Coast, and Des and co must think he will turn out ok to sign him up again

    Matai, I just have this gut feel from what I read he will be with us next season, it would take a massive offer for him to move on

    Agreed Kiwi, Big Tony won us that game last week.  He scored one and certainly stopped Sutton from either passing or running them in a try.  He did good.  DCE should certainly be given a chance.
