Manly signs Knights discard​

The Sea Eagles have picked up a handy front-rower from Newcastle who could push for a top grade spot next season.

Christian Ma'anaima was in the Knights' NRL squad this year but had no chance to show his wares behind the likes of the Saifiti brothers and David Klemmer.

The big middle forward turns 21 next year and will start the season in NSW Cup and wait for an opportunity.

A strong player with a good motor, he could prove another astute buy for the Sea Eagles, who picked up several bargain buys who excelled in their run to the finals in 2021.

Yeah, I just didn’t understand it, given all our props and back-rowers coming through.

Journos are prone to error in their reporting or speculation. They’re always looking for a snippet of information to make a story.

It's just like the time they said Jamie Lyon had signed with the Titans. Except people actually cared about that...

So you are saying I should take him out of my 2022 yarts? I had him as the starting front rower / full back
