The proof is in the pudding feathered friend ...
Manly are where we are this year is because players that filled in for dominant players like Fainu , Tom , and Walker were not dominant and we need dominant players in our squad like Fainu to be a dominant force and be able to compete with the best .
Even you agree that Fainu has shown he has potential.
Apart from this court case he has not been in the news for all the wrong reasons and our club obviously believes he is innocent . He is also out with a Season ending injury and I can see why our club has been patient .
Didn’t he get done filming a sex act without consent too. He’s basically always putting himself out there in public showboating being a gangsta. He’s talented af but I’d say he ain’t great at keeping a low profile

Fainu is potentially a great No 9 ...... my biggest worry with him is his ego and attitude ... if Des and co can turn that around and if he is cleared of the stabbing charge then fantastic for him and us .... but I have my worries ..... he needs to become a full 80 minute player too
IMO Fainu is potentially the best 9 behind Cam Smith .
I believe he is potentially our best Manly 9 ever in terms of individual brilliance .
As far as ego goes it is hard to be humble when you are as great as Fainu is . So he can be excused for that .
Lets not forget he is still a young fellow that is chasing fillies ;)

Mate we have all done the sex tapes . Some of us have just been unlucky and got caught.
Just Make sure you put yours in a good hiding spot and you will be right Feathered friend @Heckenberg

Don't think he has an ego at all, quite the opposite. He is very much a team player from what I have seen, very well liked with team mates, always attended matches when he was injured, hangs out with a lot of players outside of footy which is important to have that comradeship. He took a big pay cut cause he wants to be at Manly to repay their faith. I don't read into too much Instagram crap, as long as he trains hard and puts in 100% on the field. I really think he is a gun, I cannot wait to hopefully get him back on the park next year. Foran and DCE and Shuster getting smart service from Faniu is going to go along way to getting us back to where we need to be. The way he can hold up defence, runs with the ball out in front with two hands, has a step, a palm, an off load and most importantly knows when to run and when to pass.

@Dan has set up a forum for silvertails sex tapes. Post yours on here and it will be stored appropriately.
I did not know that Dan has turned our forum into a Maroon tube xxx porn site feathered friend .
We should make the most of this and have an end of the year prize for the best sex tape
We all should have plenty of time on our hands to start making some sex tapes in the off season

You are right about this spine tingling line up
Tom
DCE
Scuster
Fainu .

I'm old school ... I would have Api back in a heart beat ... he is a weapon ... and the best hooker in the comp by a country mile ...
I don’t know if Foran really is the number 9 in 2021 , maybe the 14 for a bit of up tempo change after 30 minutes and I really really fear that we’ll have Lachlan Croker again which will make the potential return of Fainu in August ( the best scenario) too little too late.

I gotta say I’m pretty surprised we signed him again based on his length of time out to date and potentially another full season.

It’s a bit like just rolling over and accepting that 2021 won’t be much different to 2020.

UNLESS there’s another ace up the sleeve we don’t know about.

The great thing with the Foran signing is that we have some serious options

He is good, but Faniu will be much better. API is top 5 for sure. Not as good as Smith, Cook, or Hodgson or even Harry Grant will surpass him next year
A hooker is in the eye of the beholder ...

One thing is, that it is often difficult to compare dummy halves, because a big part of their effectiveness rests on the quality of the teams they are playing with .. the timing, running, bending of the line, play the ball speed, calling and positioning of the playmakers etc ... ScamSmith playing for the Bears would not be near as effective ,, and Api playing with the current Penriff squad is reaching superstar status ...

I agree that Fainu is potentially a great dummy half ... but at the moment the only attribute I can see where he exceeds is his vision ... he can spot an opportunity like a magician .. in work rate, quality and quantity of defence and impact I think Api has him covered at this stage ...

It’s the waiting two years for him to “ maybe “ play that’s the big issue , not at all doubting he’s a potential gun!!
