    Should Perrett get a release the Roosters could ask Manly for the immediate services of speedster Michael Oldfield, who agreed to a two-year deal over the weekend.

    I didn't even know he was going until I read that article last night.
    Were there threads on here about his leaving? (oldfield) I get all my info from silvertails so I hope people aren't dropping the ball! ;):)

    I thought that he would be off, but to Parra to be with his mate Hoppa.

    Maybe the Perret release instigated Easts to approach him.
    Oldie still has a long way to go to be a first grade winger, but good luck to him.

    Found out last night that Parra paid $450k for Darcy - Manly were sane enough not to match it .

    Oldie is still good mates with JWH & Tasi so it's not too surprising. If the Wolf goes as anticipated, we'll be very light on for wingers next year.

    $450k would be right for 3 seasons.

    He's not worth 30 pages Dan.

    He's quick, but doesn't offer much else. Hopefully he'll develop into a reasonable player, but I'm not going to leave much sleep over him moving on. Damn shame we couldn't have kept Whare now.

    Handy back up player yes, great player no. Coming back from a knee reco it will take months for him to get anywhere near his best.

    If Wolfy leaves too we will be stuffed for 2013 in regards to wing depth...

    Fellow forum members who like me have played a few games on the wing in our playing days better start sprint training in preparation for a call up :-(

    Bye Bye Oldie

    The Sydney Roosters have signed young Manly utility back Michael Oldfield to a two-year NRL deal.

    He will join the Roosters from the Sea Eagles from next season.

    Roosters' recruitment manager Peter O'Sullivan believes 21-year old Oldfield will be a valuable asset to the club.

    "2012 has been a breakthrough year for Michael. He is one of the fastest runners of the ball in the NRL. Standing at an athletic 6'2" (185cm), he is one of the best catchers in the game under the high ball and has scored 12 tries in just 22 NRL games, including a hat-trick a few weeks ago," said O'Sullivan.

    "Michael has played fullback, wing and centre and gives us great depth and coverage across the backline.

    "We see him taking his game to the next level as a member of the young squad developing together here at the Roosters and we look forward to welcoming him to the club in 2013."

    Oldfield, who is a doing business degree at university, will be reunited with former teammates Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Lama Tasi.
