    Several posters said he was a target - just announced he is off to the Panthers for 4 years! Given that who is our big nasty prop option? Do we stay local? People with better eyes than me say we have the goods in Knight - what are the options....

    As I type I see we have Tariq Sims - second row but still a potential big nasty option

    No - that was the "red V" with vision of Manly. So we don't have him

    No one
    We have knight, fonua blake, billy bainbridge and willis meehan coming through to become our future forwards. As well as Jake trbojevic, jamie bhurer and siosaia vave. Add Kapow to that and this could be as good as the top teams in only 2 years time

    There is still the horrible Trex rumour hanging over us :eek:

    Luke Keary has confirmed that he will leave the Rabbids this year. No decision on where to just yet. :wasntme:

    After missing out on Sims and Tamou I say we are after a world class forward. I don't really know who we would be chasing that's available. Maybe an import? We defiantly will have plenty of room in the cap.

    Not a big tamou fan. We need to find a tomolomo.

    NRL360 had Green on last night and he made a salient point about replacing Tamou.

    His strategy is to have different body shapes in the forwards, as it forces the defender to change their tackling stance, thereby slowing them down.

    So he is in the market for a lanky prop.

    Manly has Lanky- Darcy, Knight, Meehan
    Manly has Bottom heavy types - Vave, AFB
    Manly has Stocky - Myles, Armstrong, Kelly,Ferris

    We'd be lucky to attract Chris Sandow these days.

    No one in their right mind would sign with Manly unless getting massive overs.

    A quick check of questions players and managers might ask

    1. Do they have a good coach?

    2. Are they on the brink of being premiership contenders?

    3. Do they gave a stable board and management?

    4. Are there any off field matters that could turn sour?

    We dont need more props ffs! We need a decent back rower to complement Buhrer, and a coach that can get them all pulling in the right direction. Buy Gillett...
