    Apparently on the way out of Leeds.

    2015 Man of Steel, can play Fullback and Centre. I'm usually against backs coming from the Super League to the NRL, but this bloke seems to be at another level than the ones who have recently come over to the NRL.

    191cm, 93 kg, could be great as a centre as he seems to have great upper body strength.

    Would take him!

    At the moment we need something. Other clubs and more recently the Raiders have done well from their pommies. We should at least be looking at the UK.

    He could be a utility for the backline on the bench?
    We have already got heaps of backline players.

    1. Brett Stewart
    2. Jorge Tafua
    3. Dylan Walker
    4. Steve Matai
    5. Tom Trobjevic
    6. Api Koroisau
    7. DCE

    Plus:
    Brayden Williame
    Matt Wright
    Pita Godinet

    After lasts nights performance, I think we need more forwards!

    Why not. He would make a great centre which is what we need to partner walker. Maybe even get burgess from roosters. Then we would have a solid, fast backline, but knowing bozo he is probably already got his man he wants

    We can't keep snake or Matai if we want to make the 8 next year, they will just ruin the season with constant re shuffling and snakes form is probably the worst in the NRL, hope he leaves.

    1.Trbojevic
    2.Tafua
    3.Walker
    4.Hardaker

    Good start to a backline, I'm still un decided on a 5/8 and winger. Not sold on hardaker just yet

    Well our best options for 5/8 are either Koroisau or Godinet at the moment. Do you think we could turn Hardaker into a 5/8? Or would that fail just like the Walker experiment?

    Hardaker's size would be wasted at 5/8. He'd be perfect as a centre. From what I've seen, he'd do well at centre, with Walker as the other.

    As for your backline, I will try to complete it:

    1. Trbojevic
    2. Tafua
    3. Walker
    4. Hardaker
    5. Wright
    6. Koroisau/Godinet/other?

    Will it wouldn't be a bad idea and I think would have more success than walker but it's too big a risk for 2017 again to go into a season without a proper 5/8.

    I'm not sold on wright as a winger, don't get me wrong he is a great winger but not fast and we really lack pace ATM. I think we can do better than wright but he is a great backup. Godinet I think would make a great impact player off the bench out of hooker. But him as 5/8, again I think we can do better.

    We should be poaching the fiji sevens team ( not hayne hough) they are big and fast. And are on a pittance.

    Yep. I'd be happy to see Manly play attractive football for seven minutes a half.

    Would love to have him in the maroon and white! He, Turbo and Walker would form a deadly three quarter line.

    What he has over the 2014/15/16 shell of the former great Brett Stewart.

    Speed off the mark
    Better defence
    Not afraid to take a hit
    Excellent support play
    Vision
    Competes for the high ball


    On par..

    Passing game


    Cons

    Dugan style tats
    weasel dick accent



    The last Man of Steel we recruited worked out well for us!

    A Suliasi Vunivalu would be handy. Another credit to the Melbourne talent scouts. He moved from Fiji to NZ when 16 and played rugby. When he turned 17 he made the Auckland Blues rugby development squad and then at 18 signed with the storm. A couple of years in their NYC team, a stint in Q-Cup with Easts and now into the NRL.

    He's only 20, played 7 games, scored 11 tries.

    And add something that Stewart never even had at the peak of his powers and that is breaking tackles and making metres/creating opportunities from kick returns.
