      Love to get Gillett before June 30 - at the right price. Although something tells me an Origin player in his prime isnt going to come cheap...but perhaps the Manly culture and lifestyle on the beaches might appeal to him

          Gillet is one of the best second rowers in the league, if we can pick him up that would be a coup

            If Potato is on big dumb Warriors deal money then we can lose him and sign Gillette. We have a bunch of guys coming off contract so there is money around...

              Bozo owes us a international state of origin forward for 2017 he promised it. I'd love Gillett but he's 28 next year and he won't come cheap, I think I'll pass but I wouldn't be complaining if he joined us. Looking at the side for next year there's a couple of spot we don't have locked in solar the side looks like this IMO

                Yes heaps of money we've probably got this amount

                Lawrence-300,000

                Matai(maybe)-500,000
                Luke Burgess-200,000
                Moltzen-50,000

                And we have a couple of fringe player worth all up 300k

                Look at all that money we could go buy who ever we liked. That's almost 3 million right there but we will probably spend some on resigning

                  Gillett is exactly the type of running back-rower that we are missing. He would fill a genuine gap in our team; however, he might price himself out of our reach (particularly if the Dragons throw a lot of cash at him).

                    I'd still like to see what Knight and Fonua Blake have to offer before we break out the check book.

                      They will have plenty I suspect; however, I don't see them as the same type of player as Gillett who would bring a different dimension. If we can afford him, and afford to keep the two youngsters then I'm all for it.

                      Bromwich from Melbourne is the dominant style needed - big, fast feet & most importantly - quick play ball ALL day....probably not available.
                      Gillett is a very good edge runner also & great defensively - welcome addition

                        Gillett would be an awesome buy. Didn't MANLY say they are after an Origin player, not sure if they mentioned if he was from NSW or QLD.

                        It wouldn't be hard to supplement Gillette's income through a TPA with a local beauty salon specialising in Brazilians.
