    Because for every overpaid player there is a NSW-cup spec player standing next to them.

    Does McDonald signing with the Cowboys, Pearson to the Dragons, give us more hope in keeping Oates?

    They're signing blokes like Glasby on premium salaries. Their 7 through to 1 for next year have all be bought if I'm not mistaken, as well as the vast majority of their forward pack.

    Is it too early to say Newcastle, who clearly are trying to buy a premiership, are the new Manly or has that honour already gone to the Chooks.

    Bennett won't look at him. He gives up too easily.

    With Jonas leaving I'd hope we have a look at Michael Purcell.

    We pulled our offer to him ages ago... We weren't going to wait to see if he won the Storm's halfback war...

    Instead we signed the highly rated Roosters halfback SOS

    I remember seeing MacDonald around the time of his debut and I thought he was going to be a future Origin player. Guess that didn't turn out too well.

    He would have been in discussions this year. Don't forget, while a lot of the Qld side has no depth now, wing is not one of those positions with Gagai, Holmes and Oates all ahead of MacDonald. If any of those three shift position or are injured next year, MacDonald is probably in.

    That said, Pearson is a great pick up for the Dragons, he'll hit the ground slidi...I mean, running next year I'm sure.

    Was just thinking we had 455 pages in the 2018 thread for the signing of SOS (and he's not even officially signed)... I want to some signing news!!!

    DCE has said that if Manly sign Neil Henry as coach, he's out.

    Start praying that Manly are that stupid.

    Addin Fonua Blake wants out too. We don't really need him but he's a decent player, would be a good buy for the Knights.
     
  16. Has he actually said it? Or are these rumours?

    just because he leaves Manly doesn't mean we will be in any position to sign him ... we won't have the room to make him any sort of competitive offer

    While you are right, he’s only got 3-4 years of his career left and his legacy really took a hit mid career. He has only just returned to the rep arena after being in exile for years, and he’s made a mil a year for 4 or so years.

    Although it’s very unlikely, it isn’t impossible that he would want to play for Brisbane.
     
    And we give Manly Jack Bird as a sweetener. Sounds like a good deal to me.
