    Today's RLW says we are set to sign him.


    Manly are set to continue their rebuild under new coach Trent Barrett by signing Panthers utility back Isaac John. The 26 year old has become something of a journeyman, with stints at the Warriors, Wakefield and Penrith since debuting in the NRL in 2009. He's been in and out of the Panthers team in his three seasons at the club but played a test for New Zealand last year and his ability to play halfback, five-eighth and hooker will make him an asset to the new-look Sea Eagles.

      OK so Barrett's recruitment policy seems to e to cast a net out over the Panthers and thats pretty much it?

        Well I guess we should expect more panthers on the way like docker. Is Murdoch Masila and good? John is a solid player and he is a bit better than your average reserve grader but will but will he play first grad next year. I see Parcell DCE combo taking off like wildfire.

        If we have both John and Moltzen, we are blocking Pearsell's step up to reserve grade

              Is he our new 5/8 for 2016 ?? We've got a lot of guys who can "sort of play 5/8" but no proven number 6 yet.

              Next years "utility" bench of Parcell, John, Brown and Symonds will be interesting. Maybe we need to dress up as Batman in the superhero round of 2016.

                Is John a 120kg explosive & powerful front rower who is an enforcer???????
                No???
                Well I'm not interested because without the addition of some grunt up front all of these signings aren't worth sh1t.

                  We've signed Lussick who fits that bill but everyone is complaining about him as well

                    Darcy has the skill, but he continues to incur multiple penalties in every game - that's why we complain about his signing.:banghead:

                    His attitude hasn't changed in 4 years, having him sit out multiple weeks due to suspension, is not helping the Manly cause :mad:

                      This is where TB comes in. It's called getting the best out of your players. This is what Bellamy does so well. Lussick has potential. It just needs directing. And this is where the coach comes in.

                      Having said that, I wouldn't whinge if Moa was suddenly signed.

                        Good signing, we need some depth at hooker.

                        Only have Api, Parcell, Ballin, Hodges, Brown & Pratt. We are a bit thin on the ground.

                          The Penns signed so many hookers as someone told them that brothels provide good cash flow.
