James Tedesco’s deal with the Roosters has been delayed until after the season due to reports of some pretty extreme demands from the superstar fullback.
The Daily Telegraph reported in September that Tedesco had all but locked up a five-year $6 million contract to finish his career at the Tri-colours, but negotiations have stalled.

Brent Read told Triple M that the length of the deal is a point of conjecture, with the Roosters keen for a three-year deal, while Tedesco’s camp wants more.

looks like hes talking about Kyle Schneider. Under 20s player? Hooker position.

Wonder if hes any good. From Parras website.

Kyle Schneider – A skilful hooker who played with the Jersery Flegg side in 2019 after strong seasons with the Eels SG Ball sides in 2017 & 2018, Kyle is still eligible for the Eels Jersey Flegg side this season. He was previously selected in the NSW U16s State of Origin side and also was chosen in Brad Fittler’s Emerging Blues squad in 2018.

Edit: Hes a goal kicker!

I have some solid Central Coast contacts who rate him big time, which is where he played Junior footy....was tied up with Eels for 3-4 years from a young age and has made every elite Junior level including Australian schoolboys (I was told) ?....could be a shrewd signing, though Fainu will obviously be first choice 9 at Manly imo.
Parra Forum saying he has reached an greement to stay at Eels and play Canterbury Cup.

Krystian Mapapalangi signs with us

After progressing through round one via forfeit, Holy Cross coach Tim White said his boys are ecstatic to finally play footy — especially Krystian Mapapalangi.

“Krystian is the most talented centre I have ever had at Holy Cross and I’ve been head coach now for 16 years,” White said.

The star centre dominated in a recent practice match against Patrician Brother Fairfield, scoring one try and setting up two.

“He signed a top-30 deal with Manly recently and I expect him to progress up the grades if he applies himself and gets his training load and application right. I believe Hasler will be good for him as he demands work ethic,” White said.

In the paper sad the club don't bother to keep us informed.

Played SG ball for Manly in feb.

Sad the supporters have a go at the club for not announcing the SG ball signing 2yrs ago. ;)

I saw on Foxsports.com.au that the Eels are making a play to bring Bevan French back to the club to play fullback, pushing Gutho to the centres. Of course you would move your best player.

Then I went to the 1eyedeels forum to see their reaction and I read that their General Manager of Football Mark O'Neill has apparently been talking to Jarryd Hayne about a come back... Hayne in secret talks with the Eels.

Great day to be an Eels supporter!
