    I'm hearing that Jennings is in the waiting to join Manly if Walker is found guilty in court at the end of Feb. Personally we don't have any other players to fill the centre position so I would take Jennings on a year contract.

      If thats the Jennings from the Rorters 2013 grand final team? Would be like Manly signing Adam McDougall, Ray Price or Terry Lamb. No thanks.

          Zorba said on 2ky on Sunday that he'd be a good buy for a club.

            A little uninspiring and is not in great form, but could be good on the cheap.

            Still has decent speed and is strong but is 31 this year. Apparently he is contracted to the Eels for 800k per season at the moment... that is obscene money.

            I think Anderson or Funa can't be too far away from their debuts either. To me they seem like better options, but I am aware that we also need more depth.

              I would be happy with him. Experienced, knows how to position himself, great finisher and pretty good defender.
              Dessie knows that it is much easier to rekindle a former champion than reinvent the wheel.
              What’s not to like

                We could do a lot worse, especially if Walker isn’t available

                  Even if the eels pick up half the bill he is still expensive.

                    I like the idea... even more so when considering the Eels will likely be forced into picking up a fair chunk of his contract. Only 31 next year, and has played at every level.

                      Better than having 2 rookie centres i guess. If walker is sacked.

                        Not sure I'll ever get over that memory of him diving to score that try a millimetre from the dead ball line in 2013 GF to seal the game. Be hard to cheer for him.

                          I agree at $400k (1/2 price) he is still expensive. But the timing will be important. Let’s say we pay a nominal 1/2 price but pick him up (or any player for that matter) at the end of January. Manly’s share prorated over the salary cap year would be 75% of the 50% or $300k. Bring him in at the end of Feb and it is ~$250k.
                          All hypothetical I know and I probably just wasted energy thinking about the maths, but it is why I think the club will look to bring in the last 2 recruits closer to the start of the season (or even during the season) so as to reduce the impact on the salary cap.

                          As for whether I would pursue him, at the right price, sure (for me that is $300k prorated).

                          The first attribute I would be looking at in any potential outside back acquisition is defensive capability. If we can lock down the edges, that is obviously a major improvement on last year.
