    Can someone please explain how Manly have let go of Vave to the Eels on a two year deal? He is one of our best forwards this year and they can’t match Parra’s offer. Bloody joke. He offers more than any other front rower in our club other than Lussick at the moment.

    I would argue he offers more then Lussick on current form but has this been confirmed or still rumours?

    He is not a player that a club should break the bank over, I think with the emergence of Meehan, Knight and AFB the club thought they could make do. I would've liked to keep him though.

      Parramatta offered him more or less double what we are offering.

        You can pay what you want for players when you don't adhere to a salary cap.

        Probably a TPA from the schnitzel shop at parramatta

          Even though he lives out that way, they had to pay him double to want to go there :rofl::rofl::rofl:

          Anyway, he's good bench depth but he's nothing special.

          As @Clay said though, has it been made official? I'd love to keep him but I don't know if I should move on..
          Are they just 'loud rumours'?

          Vave has been good for us, but AFB can fill a similar role, but is younger and has more potential.

          Hopefully the eels don't ruin another manly players career.

          He must have balls the size of watermelons to be the next Manly player to sign on with that rabble.

          I'd go anywhere else solely due to the curse.

          Would be good to keep him, but if he has gone I actually applaud the club for not paying overs for who is essentially, a handy bench player with limited scope.

          Cannot deny his passion, but paying overs for fringe players is a slippery slope to dare I say it.......being run like Parramatta.......

            More was in a brown paper bag in car park:
            Less on his official NRL SquEELS contract.

            That's standard for that low joint. Why would anyone go there otherwise. Footy graveyard.

            He has been good, but won't make 1st grade next year ahead of knight, afb and meehan. Good choice to take the $$ from parra

              He is 28

              Knight 21
              Meehan 22
              AFB 20

              That's why he didn't get re signed

                We are going to have one of the best packs soon if we can keep them together and it will lead us to another premiership, unfortunately vaves isn't needed as now we have Meehan to do his role.

                I hear Parra contracts now come in three ply, the softness you want with the strength you need.

                    He lives in Parra so I can understand his decision

                      So, you can guarantee that we won't have any injuries to our forwards next season - unlike the past two seasons, eh?
                      If youth is the criteria, why did we sign Mr Plod?

                      And Knight, Meehan and AFB are all still on their"L" plates
