Various NRL sources and now publications are stating which players are in what shape for playing for the Knights next year. I thought some people might be interested based on the contacts I have and what media are saying Staying/Still under contract: Kurt Gidley, Neville Costigan, Richie Fa'aoso, Beau Henry, Chris Houston, James McManus, Jarrod Mullen, Ben Rogers, Juniour Sa'u, Mark Taufua, Dan Tolar, Ervarn Tuimavave, Akuila Uate Being shopped to other clubs: Isaac De Gois, Matt Hilder, Marvin Karawana, Antonio Kaufusi, Con Mika, Shannon McDonnell, Cory Paterson, Steve Southern, Zeb Ta'ia Off contract but unconfirmed: Cameron Ciraldo, Keith Lulia, Wes & Kevin Naiqama Retiring: Adam McDougall Incoming/Rumoured incoming: Darius Boyd, Danny Buderus, Trent Merrin, Kade Snowden, From that list there is two names that I really like. I've always like Paterson as an impact forward, but think he is more suited to 2nd row than Prop so that being said I don't have a spot for him in Manly. The one I would be really interested in is Matt Hilder if they let him go. i think he has been dynamic out of the dummy half and think he could be a great foil for Ballin if he needs a rest, and if not then he makes a very good 2nd rower. We could play him in a similar fashion to how Melbourne use Hinchcliffe. I know a ot of people would jump to say De Gois but I've never been a fan. I think he is the most predictable hooker in the NRL based on 1 thing, he plants his feet to early. You never get the feeling of danger cause he sets his feet very early and any decent defense of the last few years reads this and can tell down to 1 or 2 attackers who is getting the ball. Outside of that no one takes my fancy to join our group. A lot of error prone forwards being offered up, which fits Bennetts style to a tee to let these guys loose. Must say I ws surprised they are trying to offload Wes Naiqama he has been great for them this year.
