no no no .... not another 50% effort player that is always in trouble !!! WTF !!
What are you smoking today feathered friend
Yeh but we'll only use him on the 50% when he's on. Look the guy has potential to be a match winner and if he comes to Manly he'll be away from the sleepy Warriors attitudes. Just needs the right coach that one.
I think Hurrell would be a terrible signing
Ritchie said it today, albeit that it is apparently a rumour that won't go away. I'd say he's pretty close to the club power brokers so what do we think? A centre pairing of Hurrell and Walker next year possibly..? He'd need to learn to tackle though.
I understand he's out of favour at the Warriors due to off field issues. Not sure exactly what they are though. He's a gun on his day.
Could do better, could do worse. If he is just keeping a seat warm for Parker/Ramien to come through then probably about the right level
Unless he has an attitude change, no thanks Hurrell does not tackle, not sure if he can contest high balls either. Lazy player overall
He is horrible defensively, great ball runner, but a real liability in defence. We have had enough issues out wide in defence without adding to it. You would have thought that he has been around long enough if he was going to address it. It's a no from me.
Matai > Hurrell No thanks.
I hope not, goes on in the forwards. But we have Vave and AFB. Defence is shocking in the centres, no lateral movement and his handling isn't great.
Kata > Hurrell if we need a Warrior Hell, let's go all out for Lolohea
Massive yes from me One of the most destructive runners in the game & Manly have transformed far less players into good first graders. Agree his defence needs work, but no offence to our current centres, have not been great in this area in 2016. Thing that ppl underestimate with Konrad is speed, everyone rates his power but is in fact, one of the quicker players in the NRL.
Reason I mentioned it is because I think if Ritchie is saying this, it's going to happen regardless.
Hurrell is awesome, big yes from me. Keep him away from Walker though
He is apparently contracted to the end of 2018 at the Warriors. And so even if he game cheap and I mean really cheap, I am not sure I would even take him. He has not had a regular spot in first grade for a while now and I just don't get spending money on players who are on the outer, on the decline or have too much baggage. I do not rate him at all, so a no for me.....! C'mon Bozo we can do better.......! Our standards must be set higher and we need to look at a number of factors when choosing who gets to wear the Maroon and White. Attitude, history, potential, attack and defensive stats, etc etc Our recruitment must improve..........! Quality not quantity........!
Potentially a great player, but reality is that he hasn't reached anywhere near that potential. Seems to be always distracted with off field issues
Would love him here, change of scenery could be exactly what he needs. Incredibly destructive on his day. Also means we wouldn't need to splash out buying a new winger as Konnie doesn't pass the ball anyway.
He has been stood down a few times for not turning up to training or turning up doped up on something The workload at Manly would kill him
Bozo is committed to rehabilitating wayward players which I fully support. I'm happy to take potentially brilliant players like Hurrell and getting them to their full potential
