History repeats. When Hodko was bought by dogs in 2010, fans were crying about next season. De$ was forced to use the halfback nobody wanted in Chez and suddenly he's a superstar in 2011. We can do it again. We will succeed with the 4 Half coaches at our disposal (Toovey, Johns, Georgallis, Penna). So we didn't get Elgey and those other two are leaving us because "they are doing it for their families" *cough* bull *cough*. Time to think of alternatives. Surely, there are enough young kids out in our own backyard to develop into first graders... or ones being discarded by Dontmatta because they are too busy buying our juniors. How about Manly's young Riley Travers? He was part of the "NSW Origin Pathways". and Will Pearsall? Anyone seen them play? Any potential there? If there are no halves available, as a temp measure, think outside the square and mould another player into one. Hodges can be a temp solution for one of those spots. Maybe even Wolfy now that he has learnt how to kick. He seems like a very adaptable dude. And he doesn't cost that much. The rest of the money can be used for re-building for the future. I have the Manly faith that we can get back to the top again and soon. .
