    Jamie Lyon homesick and wants to return to Eels?

    I doubt they could fit him under their cap could they? Will they be forced to release him or some other player?

    May be a way for him to get Parra to release him, or he just wants to up his price for 2007

    Or is he just saying that because he knows that Smith won't be at Parra after 2006 unless he wins the comp next year.

    It was written in a newspaper so it hasn't got much credability to the story.

    I'm presuming he's saying he'll play for them in 2006. I doubt he'll be there in 2007.

    So, with Tahu, Burt, Growthe & Ben Smith, who will be dropped for Lyon?

    01. Wade Mcinnon
    02. Eric Grwothe
    03. Ben Smith
    04. Timana Tahu
    05. Luke Burt
    06. John Morris
    07. Tim Smith

    They had to release players in 05 to fit current players under their cap, and no-one of note has left. In fact players like Mcinnon, Burt, Growthe, Smith & Hindmarsh have all had their contracts upgraded. Completely doesn't make sense, unless they stand to make money for releasing him to someone else like us.

    Paper talk boys. The same papers had Manly with 7 rep players in 2005.

    The Eels don't want him.

    Where is Pepsi when you need him?

    I'm thinking that Parra say yep, we'll take him back. Then They say to Manly, well, you pay us X, and we'll release him to you. That way we would be paying one year of Tahu's contract for them !!!

    The NRL then wins, because he would bring people in through the gates to watch him.

    Parra win as they get payed a hefty amount.

    Manly would win for obvious reasons.

    Today's telecrap states that Parra have knocked back Lyon's offer to join them next year. Apparantly a few players and management are still dirty on him leaving.

    Hopefully this is part of manly's ploy to get him released early in time for 2006.

    2007 for mine, wherever he plays. Cayless is dirty on him and Parra will call any bluff!
