        Hope he finds himself again, not long ago he was the best winger in the world. I think he will surprise a few people.

              Everyone that signs for Manly deserves an opportunity to prove & establish themselves, no matter who they may be!

                Too right! Who'd want to be at a club where the supporters are putting you down and writing you off before you've even started pre-season. I'd like to think we're all better than that surely.

                  So will he have to fight his way up from Blacktown or is he already a starter.

                    If he's fit and healthy at the start of the season I hope he starts.. $250K for a winger is a lot of coin for him to be running around in the reggies.

                      We will have a good solid off season giving AKiller (his new nickname now TheKiller has left?) plenty of time to gel with his playing partners! Will he be outside fellow Origin Dylan Walker? Wow electric!

                          At writing as I am sick of speculation our backs look like this
                          Tom T, tafua, Matai, walker, uate, green, DCE.

                              Have nothing against Uate either. He hasn't been good the last couple of seasons, so mabye a new team environment is what he needs.

                              I just feel he has been signed more as a depth signing rather than FG at the moment. Given his form you would think he would need to earn his FG spot.

                              I think most of the anger/hurt is at letting Bruher go, and rightly so.

                                Whose our other walk up winger then??? I don't know of anyone currently apart from Jorge that would be assuming he's earnt playing wing in 2017.

                                That backline is locked in IMO unless we get DWZ.

                                    I'd say based on form Williame is probable the best of the rest. He was starting to show some good signs.

                                    The other thing I think we are forgetting is snake. If he plays Tommy is sure to be the wing.

                                      $250K for a depth winger (and that's just our bill, Knights pay the other half)????? I don't think so, Hex is our depth winger, making less than a quarter of Uate. On that salary this guy better be here to play.
