Lawton a gun

I think the Lawman has played well for Manly in the games he has actually been on the field. I was hopeful this year he might even be able to play 13.

But too many longer-term injuries now. ACLs, Achilles, shoulders.

Surely his best days are unfortunately past him now.

Sad but true - a genuine footy player who again has been cruelled by injuries

Good luck to him.

Always though he was very solid though a bit overrated on here.

Jack of all trades, good at every aspect of RL. Hope he gets a chance to specialise in the SL.
Moving on a decent player like Lawton shows Seibold has a pretty clear idea of what the squad needs to strengthen. It's not dummy half and it's not second row.
Will be interesting to see if Condon and Fulton also find new homes after getting tapped on the shoulder. Like Lawton, they have some attributes but obviously aren't what coach is looking for right now.

We are now down to 27 in the Top 30 squad, who are going to fill the remaining 3 spots. Brown would be one I presume, do the other 2 come from the Train and Trial players?

The thing going for Matterson is his versatility which is invaluable on any bench. You could argue Burbo fills that roll for now I’m front of him.
If it comes to either Matto or Burbo for a bench spot, it's got to be Burbo, more upside in attack for mine. I can see Matto coming in every now and then owing to injury, but may have a fight for this with Arthur.

Certainly could not doubt Karl 's enthusiasm level or general footy ability but gee he has been a bit injury prone the past couple of seasons as well .
Hardly has featured in many run on or bench option suggestions in ist grade for next season also so probably well worth considering a change in scenery from his and the clubs perspective .
Always recalled what a good impression he made in the 2nd row in his Manly debut against the Eels a couple of seasons ago and again could never doubt his good commitment or participation outlook .
Just some of his on field decision making, some limitations and again the injury problems .
Type of player however who still deserves every success in his future playing career at whatever level

A good player, but came to us as injury prone and left us injury prone. Good luck in the old dart. Say Gday to Johnny Bairstow for me.
