I heard Gould putting out a bushfire on a Trent Barrett rumour. He said that Manly don't have the salary cap to buy or to retain players off contract. Brian Kelly?
Yet they just signed Elgey who was said to be on 600k a year at the Titans.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

Pretty safe to say he'd be on a whole lot less than that now given his form over the last 18 months.

Maybe, but he was signed to play in the spine for NRL.

My point was more about the Gould comment.

We're not looking at forwards at all? Seriously? Second row and centre is where we should really be looking

100% we are looking to beef up the forwards but priority is back up Halfback & centre.

Mutual agreement, finer details being negotiated. Will be the better for us.

Last I heard was that is all but dead in the water. Things looked good till Manly activated year option for 2019. Was trying to negotiate a release but Manly wouldn’t budge. Unless something drastically changes he’ll stay at Manly.

Cheers Pom, had a bit of hope McQueen would go alright, but it just didn't happen, wish him well where ever he goes(NQ), he played almost every game so far this year, except when he was 18th man.
Go hard or go home

Wouldn’t hold my breath for any significant signings. Bit of a worry. There is zero depth in that squad. Reynolds needs to come back strong.
