Souths face big name famine

SOUTH Sydney patriarch George Piggins admitted his club was "rank outsiders" to snare his nephew Braith Anasta as the club lost another player yesterday, lock Ashley Harrison.
Harrison announced he would join Sydney Roosters for the next three years, saying Souths' failure to secure a major signing over the past two weeks had played a part in his decision.
There could be more bad news today with Anasta tipped to announce he will follow Harrison to the Roosters, while there was speculation yesterday Melbourne halfback Matt Orford could spurn offers from the Rabbitohs and Manly to remain at the Storm.
I hope so. Although Orford did the same thing last year, looked on the verge of going elsewhere then re-signed with melbourne. Perhaps he is holding out for a better contract or he is trying to get away from melbourne and the crappy melbourne weather
Finally what we all new Anasta has agreed to terms with the Rooster"s..Dont know if it is 3 or 4 year's.Now we just need Orford to make up his mind and tell everyone where he is going to play.On the ME forum it has been posted that he is heading to Sydney this afternoon.To Brookvale or Redfern??
