So if Souths can release a player so he can pursue a better deal why can't other clubs do the same for us (eg Aloiai & Saab)?
Because Souths must be happy to let him go .. the other clubs feel that Saab and Aloaiai are good players and want to keep them .. no real mystery ... just as we must of been happy to release AFB .. I am sure we would have taken a different tack if it was Tommy ..

You would have to think that if we wanted him .. given his brother is here we would have been a chance to get him ... either we didn't want him or there may be more to the Siro going to Tigers than just rumour ??
Well if that's the case I hope we have someone else lined up other than aloiai and garner.. on another note the NRL really need to introduce a transfer window. Teams should be sorted by nov 1 without interferences in the preseason. Should open post GF day and the day prior to Nov 1. Then perhaps another for a week only starting June 30.

That would be WAY too professional for Rugba Leeg

Young Anderson must be a very slow developer ... I think this is the 15th year in a row that he has had a development contract ... and in that time we have, or are trying to buy, 10 outside backs ahead of him ...

Either he is the new custodian of the goat photos ... or is a late maturer that the club still hold hopes for ... but good luck to him ... I have written him off at least 6 times but he appears to be harder to get rid off than the mormons ...
Thought exactly the same thing

I think Saab will end up happening.

The Fergie Story sounds like a complete beat up.

But yeah certainly the style of winger winger needed. Manly could really use the Experience he'd bring too.
The squeels apparently looking at taking on Mansour hence the shopping around of Fergo

Anderson has talent. That was obvious in his junior games a while back. Seems though he forgot he had it. Probably Manly know the talent is latent there, just needs a kick up the a...

It's a bit unfair - most of the good penrith players this year were from their 2015 NYC right, and some of them only debuted this year. A bit of patience with some players can pay off.
Not quite true,

Cleary, Fisher-Harris, Edwards, Nadan, Luai, May, CHN and Robert Jennings are all graduates of that side. None of them were rookies, all established first graders

That said Anderson was not part of that 2015 team, our graduates were Turbo, Ramien, Garner and Knight

Was Hynes now at Storm also in that team ?

I think there was also a powerhouse centre/ backrower who didn't kick on also, but looked a wrecking ball....apart from Turbo jnr was the main attacking weapon....fair enough to mention, as stalled at NSW cup level.

Possibly only one spot to fill in the squad now with Aloai and Saab looking likely to join.

With one spot left and no number nine with Manase still being stood down our squad looks unbalanced.

I think we need another hooker in the squad along with a backrower.
