I'd say Dessie will bow down before Fulton and play Matai @ Lock. Reason:- useless acquisition for 07.
I don't know if people know this, but apparently Jamaal Lolesi was asked to play backrow again this year by Sheens with the release of Harris and co. That forced him to ask for a release of contract, because he thought his body wasn't up to 2 years of it.
Manly now want Matai to do the same. I bit unfair on him I reckon.
Lolesi is only 25ish Barks
I would prefer Matai in the centres tbh, but he could handle lock
He has worked bloody hard to get where he has, and does a lot of **** work in the games anyway, so he would do anythng just to stay in 1sts i reckon
