I'm very happy we have Orford. :yeah: :yeah: :yeah:

Its a coup to get both players. Looks like Manly management a far better than what some would give them credit for.

I think they would make a gun 6 & 7 pairing.

It is great news - but what about the talk that we might let witty go? Does that mean mona's at 6?


Reserve Grader
I just read that about Witt maybe released.That would leave us without a recognised goalkicker.I wouldn't want to rely on Hicks.


Journey Man
Orford, Willo and Hicks can Kick, of which i imagine willo will be the first picked, then orford then Hicks.

Its time for a yart

They are all part time kicker's at best.They dont kick with the same % that Witt does.Cameron Smith kicks for The Storm.I would like to see Witt stay he is young and has more scope for the future.He has a go.


Journey Man
Willo is 75%, witt 80% not a huge difference.

Also add an off season of full time training and they will improve.

I thought the same thing re witt but he is going backwards and will waste 450K a year at the rate he is going
there is no way he will be cut.he will stay and play 5/8 to start the season.dont get me wrong-he needs to perform a hell of a lot better but at least he has youth on his side and an 80% success rate with the boot.moving monaghan to a position where he has even less time wont happen.if he stays it will be the 9 jersey.


Reserve Grader
Totally agree Sue and with Willo being 75% to Witt's 82%,Willo doesn't kick as often as Witt does so you cant really compare their %.Willo is a fill in kicker at best.


Journey Man

you will need them for either

a) we dont make the finals through 4 more losses or

b) we make the finals

either way they can be put to good use
