Does anyone know if Bronson Xerri is on the radar? Big kid and with good rep. The last junior centres out of the Sharks have been good, Curtis Scott and Jess Ramien.
Bronson Xerri is a talent that’s for sure

People around the sharks think he is better than Curtis Scott

I know for a fact he’d be playing in the NRL this week if he wasn’t 17, I’ve got it on good authority that he’ll line up in the centres next year for sharks

Sharks won’t let him go

If we do sign Brian Kelly Ivan might even put him on the wing, he can play wing as well.
Why? He is playing well at centre, is learning to play that position in the NRL and will be one of our two best centres (the other being Marsters).
I still think Fonua and Marsters in the centres and Kelly as a backup.
Kelly is a starter in the centers with Marsters. Fonua is nothing more than a back up until he learns to bring a consistency to his performances which includeds turning up to training on time.
When do people learn, Fonua made the Super League dream team twice in a row, the only 2 years he was there. He made over 200 metres every game with us in ISP and at least scored 1 try, and if he didn't, he made up for it the next game by scoring 2. And yeah a few errors came with that, but he's played 2 games for us in 1st grade and hasn't made a single error.

Brian Kelly made his debut for Manly at the back end of last year and has been nothing but a little over average. He's had a few good games and that's about it.

From NRL. com
EXCLUSIVE: Mbye to join Tigers as Woods hits the market.
The Bulldogs insist they aren't actively shopping Woods around, however NRL.com understands the club would be open to discussions around allowing him out of his lucrative contract to ease their salary cap burden.
There's also the political machinations of it given Woods was brought to the club by former chairman Ray Dib.
New Bulldogs chair Lynne Anderson isn't worried about being left with egg on her face over the potential release of Woods despite joining the club at the end of last season on a multi-million dollar four-year deal.
The Tigers spent big money on Russell Packer and Ben Matulino when replacing Woods last year, so any potential of bringing their former captain back to the club would hinge on how much they would want to spend.
There's no way the Tigers would even consider taking the full freight of Woods' $800,000 contract, however it could come down to how desperate the Bulldogs are in freeing up space and if they are willing to make an Mbye-type contribution to make it happen.
Whether Woods is willing to take a pay cut is unknown, however he didn't burn any bridges on his way out and has openly admitted he has a great relationship with coach Ivan Cleary and enjoyed his time under him at the club.
It only adds to the drama that surrounds Sunday's Tigers-Bulldogs game at ANZ Stadium, with Woods and Josh Reynolds lining up against their old clubs for the first time and Mbye taking on the team he could join in the coming weeks.

It is what it is. Not sure how I would feel about Woods returning, feels like going backwards.

I’d take him

As I feel him and packer would be a really good combo, with Matalino and Twal off the bench

We are looking for a prop and Woodsey to his credit played every game for the tigers with 110% unlike others and did it well

Don’t need him. A backrower is the way to go.

I was only thinking this morning about the Bulldogs still needing to release someone else
I suggested we should go after Mariner
I think he would be much better for us then Woods
I like Mariners aggressive runs
Woods is to slow and we have moved on
Unless he excepts a massive pay cut and a bench warming spot
Maybe we go for both as a package deal

RFM isn’t on big money so the dogs won’t get rid of him no chance

Second rower.... hmmmm well I just watched the titans and roosters game and would love Hipgrave his aggressiveness is so good to watch should’ve seen him go at Fergo all game along with hitting teddy with a bell ringer

Not sure on his contract situation but what do they mean anyways.... just ask Mitch
