Unfortunately we are fast approaching the time when we are not going to have Killer, Skivy or Snake in the backline somewhere.

Had to happen sooner or later.

But someone's head should roll if they all happen to be gone at the end of this year. Who dropped the ball on that one?

The Lurker needs to replace his "L' with a "J".

Of course Manly would let him go because we are flush with backline talent. What a goose.

I would like Matai to be around the club long term after his playing career has finished. He is a top bloke and the Poly guys really look up to him (I think he's a chieftain or something, someone help me out).

Hopefully this rumour is false. If not then I will be shattered. He has always put in 100 % week in week out, often trying to lift the team with his strong runs from dummy half and hard hits in defence. He will be missed.

First Lyon, then rumours of Snake and now Matai. Who's next? Lets hope that Barrett and Bozo have sounded out their replacements.

I had "heard" that someone overseas had offered him some real good coin to go at end of this year. If true, Manly should let him go as a reward for his great service. He hasn't that many more money making years left in that ageing workhorse body

I am 100% certain that Bozo has being doing nothing for the past 6 months other than negotiating with their replacements.

The willingness to release Matai tells me the deal has been done.

Dig your heels in Steve. See out your contract. They wouldn't let you go when you asked to go, but now that you're happy to stay they'll let you go. Management at Manly are an intelligent lot.

Matai deserves a medical payout - a miracle that he can maintain his effectiveness with all his injuries :angel:
