What's doing????

Wouldn't take Mann for a bet - Hasn't done a thing this year.

One of the best defenders in the competition, pound for pound one of the strongest, plays whatever role given to him by the coach without fuss, ability to play 1-7, attack growing by the week and would only get better with a starting position, wouldn't cost too much..... yeh pass on Kurt Mann.

Mann had big wraps at Melbourne.. Then left and haven't really heard much of him since.

Sleeping giant or average plodder?

I would take mann.

Upgrade on Thompson at the back.

Thompson is a winger.

1. Kurt Mann
2. Corey Thompson
3. Kevin Naiqama
4. Esan Marsters
5. MWZ/Fonua/Nofa

Gives you that extra playmaker at the back..

Because he has no role. Ive seen him live twice this year and he looks to be playing back row lol
True, saints are playing him in the backrow rotation, so he is trying to learn another position, as he already has played fullback,, centre, wing, 5/8th and halfback.
Go hard or go home

It wasn't too long ago that you'd read a dragons Forum and they were likening him to Darren Lockyer. I think nailing down 1 position would be beneficial for both Kurt and WT

Ben Barba scored a hat trick over night but suffered a shoulder injury and left the field with 15 minutes to go ...awaiting scans.

Mann has the same problem as a guy like Tui - potentially a really good footballer but not a knock-out in any single position IMO.

Yeah he's really strong for how skinny he is, but he's still skinny. Dragons obviously want to find a spot for him in the side, but struggle to work out exactly what that spot should be.

Ricky has done it again, lost Paulo but rumoured to have signed Luciano Leilua.

Also Souths have signed the young Broncos fullback Corey Allen.

Corey Allen is a very good young fullback, good pick up for Souths

Not even gonna lie, Ben Barba looks so dangerous. I still thought he was good but not as good as he was back when he was playing for the doggies. He looks even more dangerous then when he was playing for the doggies, he looks faster too.

Valentine holmes - fullback
Kurt Mann - can play 1-7 preferably play him centre
Corey oates - second row if he doesn’t perform well can move back to wing
Koroibete - wing
Anthony don - wing
Isaako - fullback

I reckon we can grab any of these two as some of them are off-contract and not in their favourable postions.

Also does anyone know when kikau is off contract, we could really use someone like him running hard off brooks and benjis short passes
