    Because there has been no move to sign any halves.

    Why would a budding forward sign with a club that has no direction.

    Manly need to be ruthless and sign two quality halves .... And the others will come.

    The halves situation is the priority, we need something in place soon and once a marquee player is snared we will find it easier to get in some forwards, whom we choose is the issue. I just hope it is a player who is aligned to our club values and that we dont pay overs for a mercenary.

    Haha. Burgess didnt sign because we dont have any pre signed halves?

    Im sorry for laughing, but that is absolutely ridiculous.

    But the halves won't come until we add to our forward pack. What a vicious circle!
    Re-sign our young talent, chase young talent elsewhere and then see who we can get.

    After the news that the Warriors offered him 800k maybe we did not pursue him. It's clear we are not keen on signing players on overs. Maybe we are going the route of the Panthers - bang for buck.
    But continue with the wrist slashing I'll be out.

    GI on Sterlo just confirmed that Manly went hard for TB @:cool:

    Mase reckons 2v was angry at how Manly have been losing, not so much the 3 losses in a row. More effort is promised after some hard truths were spoken :)

    Well if we went hard and lost out - not sure what else the club could do.

    The halves won't sign until they know we have some decent forwards. Catch 22

    We have plenty of direction. Unfortunately all downwards at the moment

    It's called a spiral dive, usually caused by pilot error, and once you are in it , it's ****ing hard to get out of it!!
