    If the Warriors are looking to sign him that would be a tight call. Maybe if they leave him in Australia it would be ok, but still a tight call.

    Tight or right?

    He seems to do a better job than Iro, which isn't hard

    He does a good job which is tempting but he is a scumbag which doesn't fit with the club, so a tight call.

    Get rid of Tony Iro all together the guy is a prick of the highest order. Get an aussie in there who is based in oz.

    He was being released anyway wasn't he? What a fantastic coup that would be, signing a player who has already been released.:rolleyes:

    It's all mental for this kid, he really could be anything but it's a struggle for him, the Knights had him as their pet project last season but have changed their mind and shown him the door, he sounds too much like hard work for our club who don't exactly have a great record for turning out mentally hardened first graders.

    Sign both Joseph Manu and Esan Marsters. Both off contract at the end of next season, both Junior Kiwi reps. Both only 21 and quality Manu would be an upgrade on the centres the club has. Esan Marsters would offer a point of difference from the current 2nd rowers. Has footwork can run a good hole, has an offload. Would fill a void in the squad. Lack of quality centres and 2nd rowers. Tony Iro get it done

    I'd be stoked if we could land Joe Manu, he's a future star player.

    So he can get game time in the NRL.

    Ryan Matterson ahead of him is bullshit.

    Think you'll find next season that Manu will be ahead of Matterson. Why would you play a back rower as an outside back. Matterson has built up heaps but unfortunately his agility and speed haven't increased at the same rate as his bulk

    Matterson played because Manu is still learning in defence. He was shown up plenty of times in the NSW Cup final yesterday vs penrith.

    Defence not a strong point when coming through the U20's system. If he can sort that part of his game next year him and Latrell will be the centres for the chooks

    100% agree game breakers both of them sick of the shit Kata and bunty do (or dont do) esan marsters really like his aggression and joseph manu could be anything i know he's got a fair way to go but the way he plays he looks like abit of a mix between justin hodges and mark gasnier.

    Perhaps, don't think there's anyone at Cronulla or Tigers that we'd be interested in

    The Tigers have a young half worth having a look at. Any of you know much about a guy called Lolohea?
    Cronulla have a guy called Le Chad. He could be worth doing some research on.

    If we had the opportunity, it would be silly not to have them in our team.
