    With Jamie gone who is going to be the other second rower to join Kapow? We currently have no depth in that position since we have released Matteo, Symonds & Green.
     
  2. SeaEagle9413

    Might be Lewis Brown or even Greg Bird if he is confirmed. AFB might also take the role. Who knows at this point. I just hope our management know what they are doing! @God please help us!

        Meehan and AFB are props through and through.

        Taupau, Lane, Winterstein, Bainbridge and Brown are the current backrowrs we have with first grade experience. Hoppa yet to make his debut.

          Probably between Winterstein, Lane,
          Lussick or AFB could play there
          There has to be another signing to replace Buhrer whether it be Bird or someone with more size is Vaughan from Canberra available?????

                    I think Greg Bird is done IMO, I think manly only go rid of Buhrer to get bird.

                      Sea Eagles set sights on Sironen

                      By The Mole
                      October 5, 2016

                      Classy Tigers back-rower Curtis Sironen is considering a shock switch to Manly – only months after agreeing to extend his deal with the joint venture.
                      RLW is hearing that Sironen’s management has been holding secret talks with the Sea Eagles about a change of clubs for 2017.
                      Sironen had an unhappy time at the Tigers this year, spending time in NSW Cup.
                      He was freely linked with a move to any one of several rival clubs early in the year before committing to stay at the Tigers mid-season.
                      But with the Sea Eagles freeing up space in the salary cap by releasing long-serving forward Jamie Buhrer to Newcastle yesterday, it opens the door for Sironen.
                      The talented 23-year-old local junior is the son of Balmain legend Paul Sironen and has played all his football at the Tigers since debuting in 2012.

                      Not the worst signing we could make, Tigers shouldn't have him in reserves he is a talented ball player who could help brooks and Moses. Stupid Taylor another dumb move by him.

                      They was a report of Jorge moving to the 2nd row, seems more likely now that we have Uate.

                        That potential pack certainly has plenty of bite to it I have to say..

                        Takes the edge off the Buhrer sting doesn't it. Especially if we get Bird too.
