Wouldn’t give up on Kelly just yet. Those in the know seem to think he’s signed.

Idk how much to read into Manly’s CEO, It means nothing. How many times do clubs make those kinds of statements on players and coaches and a week later the player/coach is gone.

Why not try and get Mitch rein from the Titans. Solid 80 minute hooker who can tackle and attack reasonably well. Would get him cheap.

I would still put my money on Jake Granville for an 80 minute hooker.

No Kelly then, back to the player pool to find a centre. Judging by the posts on here looks like we're after a 9 too. Parcell was handy for manly but not sure of his contract status in the esl
He doesn't go off contract until the end of 2019.

Granville resigns with cowboys for 3 years

Good. He's past it. Need to look elsewhere.
Maybe it's time to have a sneaky look in the super league.
The decent ones over there are locked up under contracts and it's a waste of money to pay the kinds of transfer fees ESL clubs would require to release a top shelf (ESL) hooker. James Roby and Daryl Clark would probably be the picks but Roby is probably too old now to bother playing NRL and Daryl Clark wasn't interested in NRL the last time he re-signed over there. We'd be better off looking locally if there is a need to improve our depth there.

That's unfortunate. We need another dummy half badly. ET sucks.
We do. But not Granville.

From the Tele -

Manly CEO Lyall Gorman confirms centre Brian Kelly will be at Manly in 2019
MAY 28, 2018

MANLY CEO Lyall Gorman has confirmed the Sea Eagles will retain centre Brian Kelly despite fears he could be released due to the club’s salary cap drama.

Kelly had received interest from the Wests Tigers and Cowboys, but Gorman said the Lismore-born back is contracted and staying at Brookvale.

“Brian is contracted for next year,” Gorman told The Daily Telegraph about Kelly, who has scored three tries in 12 games this year.

“Absolutely, he will be here next season.”

Kelly’s retainment is a big boost for a Manly side that has been plagued by off-field drama all season.

The Sea Eagles’ cap situation has forced the club to part ways with a number of players, including Fijian flyer Aku Uate.

Fantastic news. The guy is average, no better or worse than our existing depth players.
Very true, I’d rather Fonua or Thompson at centre over Kelly

Parra if anyone , Will Smith would be a good pick up imo if the Parra story is true , perfect utility
