Well, I hope if he goes gangbusters for us this year that he hangs around and we dont just build him up just so some other club can snag him after we put all the work into him. The rorters will be watching with intent, mark my words.. :finger: :finger: :finger:

There was a video of Levi dancing in front of all the boys with his shirt off on his 2nd day training with the boys. He's obviously a confident bloke and you need that from your hooker, especially coming in late. Interesting to see Metcalfe doing a dance too, maybe some kind of initiation??? But both boys looked confident and all the boys seem to be really enjoying themselves

Gees. Not much of him. Straight to the weights room.
Thought that i read somewhere where he was listed as being 90 k g , so reasonably solid for a 9 . Seems quite nippy now so probably does "t need much more bulk which may reduce that asset , Strength and conditioning is another matter of course and also hopefully he can manage some type of a decent input in defence .

No doubt opposition teams will target him intensely in defence, along with Croker, Cust and anyone else we use at hooker.
Makes me pine for the days of Matt Ballin - never missed the mark with a pass, did not miss tackles, never missed a game. He made it all so simple.

Manase had his issues initially of trying to adapt to the rigors of i st grade ruck defence but got a lot better . Of course also will miss A P I "s vigorous tackling but it is what it is , Levi has been playing at a competitive level for some time now and should be experienced enough to fit into Manly "s present defensive structure and do what would be expected from him with some effective ruck defence .

Nah ... the usual crowd would still bag him for a lack of creativity, not scoring enough tries ... and having a sensible haircut ...

I got that impression too....that it was some sort of initiation dance and it appeared by the reaction of the others he passed with flying colours. Gave me confidence that all bodes well for the team in 2020.

Who's that hiding at the back just left of Tof? Looks a bit like Gutho!

Sounds like a done deal, announcement imminent.
I dont mind it at all as a bargain basement buy considering our 9 woes.
What will be interesting getting the crystal ball out is if he goes on to have a good year, do we stick with him and Fainu is all of a sudden on the outer in 12 months time?
I mean i rate Fainu in the top 4 or 5 hookers in the game even at this early stage in his career, but cant help but feel all these off field indiscretions have put a dent on his reputation..
Probably a few pages late in reply to this, but, Fainu has definitely put himself in a position that could put his job at stake. Hopefully this is something that he wasn't involved in as he says but gives him enough of a scare to pull his head in.
