If he had a contract it would be all over John's illiterate instagram account.
I doubt he has signed.

Have had to re appraise my rating of him based on recent efforts . Obviously has ability but just seems so apprehensive with his on field outlook . Gave him the benefit of the doubt with Brimson "s run away try with the ref partly [ maybe ] affecting or blocking his tackling effort but subsequent defensive efforts , very ordinary and not i st grade standard . Even 250 k seems a bit excessive right now , no doubt can improve , not too sure what it is going to take and considering that he was also being looked at as a back up full back . Maybe 250 k to retain him if he is interested in staying , but on the upper limit with his current form , not too sure if any other clubs would be falling over themselves to recruit him on any more money either . .
100 per cent agree, that lack of effort astounded meHe dead set walked instead of chasing the Titans winger after the intercept.
Compare that effort to Turbo and Funa from the other wing, who ended up saving a certain try.
The youth brigade were meant to bring effort, and a better attitude.....not so with young Hoppa.
I wouldn't be picking him next week, on principle alone.
Compare him with Miski. Abbas was on for 10 mins or so and went looking for the ball, took some tough runs in traffic.He hasn't been a standout, but I'm not sure what a winger in a team that is playing inconsistent unstructured footy is supposed to do. How do you shine under those circumstances ? I tend to agree that his workrate and attitude seem to be lacking a bit, but you've got to cut him some slack as he is basically a kid who has had a lot of pressure put on him from family and the media. Not everyone at that age can deal with that.
I'd be happy to keep him, but not on $250K a year based on efforts this season. I think it's a given that he will go where the money is, let's hope Manly don't get sucked into paying overs. We are obviously clearing the decks to free up some cap space, let's not blow it all on Hoppa when there are other more important issues that need fixing.
