I'd be going all out for Ado-Carr or Alex Johnson.
Get either of them, with Turbo at fullback, and our backline will be supercharged.
I think we have the strength in the forwards and the young talent so there is no need to make major buys. But we need one Superstar in our backline.

Like the idea of getting Tom Starling and Naden. Problem is we have zero room in our cap. Cap is our biggest problem, been managed poorly for yrs and will continue to hamstring us for yrs to come..

honestly of our squad of 30 we have 19 that I would like to keep, one that is gone and another out for the season and maybe in prison next year, at least two that you never hear anything about, one going next year, one dinosaur that is likely extinct, and a second grade hooker!!

Pretty much agree with the entire post mate - except would add Schuster and he WOULD be in the 17....also with young Hoppa, I would give him Taufuas jersey next week and work out his worth from that....simply as he has Massive potential , but needs to prove it at NRL level...we won't know his value till he gets a few runs...would hate any of these talented youngsters getting an opportunity elsewhere and becoming star players
Some will say the thread is panis and can have that opinion, however the performances against Sharks, Illawarra and Penrith scream its very valid

Parker a bsckrower again ?? A centre who gets smashed every week and whose health is a serious issue to go to the back row.! Can we just forget this fairytale. He gets targeted now by outside backs. Can you imagine him running into Radley JWH etc every week.

If the club are serious they should give the lad an extended break. Four concussions in a three months.if that is not ringing alarm bells under the NRL protocols what the hell does ring them.

The Cows stuck young hamner at fullback and he goes well. Other clubs have done the same. Why isn't Des giving Schuster, Metcalf a go. The time for persisting with this dysfunctional 2nd grade backline is over.

Fuksake if I see that same shtful backline named again for next week I simply won't bother to watch it. The Warriors have found a bit of form and they'll clean us up. It'll probably be a good thing as surely it will end our season and end this ridiculous persistance with 2nd grade players who aren't capable of making defensive decisions. I don't want to see Elliot, Croker, Parker, Taufua, Garrick, Keppie, anywhere near a Manly 1st grade side AGAIN.

Coates Creighton Best Hammer Staines ...and plenty more .

All have weaknesses, some glaring , as you would expect but all are learning.
Itโ€™s been a decade since we won. We are no hope this year so why the hell push their development back another season when the plodders we have now wonโ€™t go any better. Zorbs was brutally honest about it today and he speaks with Des often.

I donโ€™t think it will make any difference results wise but in terms of the future it will make a huge difference ..... and st least the fans can cast their eyes over our future. It sure beats watching a slow team playing pre Covid football every week.

From what Iโ€™m hearing donโ€™t hold your breath though.

There's simply no more excuses. Yes we cooped injuries but that doesn't excuse the complete lack of application or attitude last night. FFS the Titans and Cows pushed that Panfers team the whole 80 min the previous 2 weeks. We can't even push sht uphill with these rank park footballers masquerading as 1st graders. Give some of the young ones a go FOR FUKSAKE DES. At least if they get beaten they will have made a fuking effort.

Ben Turbo is no where near first grade, because of his last name doesnโ€™t mean he has fully developed

@maxta agree mate. Was just copying the zero tacklelist but Schuster for sure. I would have him and Guaca competing forThomsons jersey, or sign Magoulias who is a Glenn Stewart type player and have Schuster on bench.

We dont have cap space for โ€œ1 starโ€ that player is Dylan who may leave.

In saying this though if we have a clean out - which we should - we will have cap space.
Croker Elliott Parker Boyle Taufua (maybe even Dylan) Waddell Gosiewski
all out
Magoulias Saab Stone Starling
all in

Manase is a write off for the next year or two. Starling 14 Levi 9 he has been good.

If Walker goes to Dogs chuck the sink at Naden or Burton. Burton may be looking for way out and would be a great centre although that probably wouldnโ€™t appeal to him. Sailor would be a good signing too. Peta Hiku even, just any centre/wing that would be a great first grader.

I think waddell should be number 28 of 30

I'd desperately like to see Jake play prop and only 50 minutes a game. Taupau to second-row or lock (his impact/punch is slowing down, but he does a job perfectly).
