“There are a number of names that we can look at, and I’m sure he (Tuivasa-Sheck) would be one of them. I don’t want to be presumptuous and we want to put the support around Tom.” - Anthony Seibold
I want him.I don't want RTS. It'll just be disappointing losing him at the end of the season, as we sit in 14th-16th place.
And what will we have to look forward to? The same useless roster next season plus wait for it: Tommy Talau !
Maybe he'll improve with the likes of Ben Condon, Morgan Boyle, Josh Aloiai, Christian Tuipulotu, Nathaniel Roache, Kelma Tuilagi and all the other budonkadonks ?
Bear in mind, he'd.not be here for the community, passion, jersey, club, fans or any of that. It's a rental, where it's all about the $$$ only, with a player who really wouldn't care about result given he's already signed with another team 6 months away. Think mercenary.I want him.
Difference between spoon and there is no spoon.
RTS has always been a team first guy and a fierce competitor. I'd have no questions about his motivations if he committed to us for the rest of the year.Bear in mind, he'd.not be here for the community, passion, jersey, club, fans or any of that.

Actually, come to think of it, he'll actually fit right in with this club, the coaches and players right now with that mindset.
Fair enough. Sign him. Bring in all the bounty hunters as far as I'm concerned. All just.lookong for their next highest paid contract, with absolutely no emotional attachment in their next job.
There's no doubting his class but doing it just doesn't feel right to me. If we're allowed to use the money to top a contract, I'd rather do that and play Garrick at FB and Parker in the centres. It's not ideal but also not the worst thing that could happen. And we avoid getting involved in this short term contract BS. But anyway .....RTS is pure class and has such high standards for himself, he would let noone down.....in fact would show more respect to the Manly jersy than a few who have worn it already in 2023.
Massive Yes from myself, but seems like such a good thing with all the crap lately, hard to believe....be like winning the lottery to get RTS.
