    We could do worse than to sign this guy up. Would probably lighten the place up a bit.

      I would give him a shot. Bring back Faoso for another year and give the young guns a year with a couple of veterans. With King gone and possibly Watmough maybe even add a good solid prop as well. Not a superstar but a good starter

        Sign him up and give him a game with Beaver in the 9s, would be outstanding

          Big Willie + Beaver in the same dressing sheds? What sort of a forum is this?

            I very much doubt he'd come here, considering that the last time Manly tried to sign him they were talked out of it

            He'd be great value on a 2 year deal.

            Maybe Willie wants to put a ring on it.

            No to Big Willie. The guy makes too much noise, and we need players to "get in line" with the organisation, not another mouth piece with a massive ego and a swag of opinions.

              I reckon Mason would be a handy pickup if we didn't have to pay a fortune.

              He seems to have matured and I don't think Tooves would take any crap from him anyway.

              Looks like the bongos may take him though.

              I agree with @snake. He's a very loud strong personality, and if he doesn't get in line he could well have terrible consequences on the playing group.

              I can't see him taking too much direction.

                One thing I've heard about Willie is his teammates love him. He has always been especially popular with the young kids. Coaches didn't like that as they thought he was having a bad influence over them. As he matured I think those concerns aren't so much an issue anymore.

                  Willie is well past his best and carries on like he has ADD. Pass

                    He has matured, and with guidance from Bennett played some of his best footy this year. I'd have a definite NO to Hannant though. This guy is well known to be a destabilizing and undermining character in any team that doesn't have Bennett as coach.

                    Not one Knight supporter I have spoken to wants Mason to go.

                    Maybe Rick Stone knows he doesn't have the credentials to keep him in check like other coaches like Bennett and Maybe Tooves might.
