I imagine there's a great deal of schadenfraude being enjoyed by the old Wests fans here.
I don't follow.
Manly missing out after shedding a player to accommodate him.
When did we do this? Was this why we shedded Hodgo all those years ago?
Did we shed someone to go for Brent Kite? I vaguely remember loosing Keith Galloway around then.
Did we shed someone thinking we would get a Manly player?
No because of the Silvertails history, Manly raiding other clubs for players now not getting their marks despite moving the pieces around.

It will be very good for Mitchell Pearce to be at Newcastle.
He will be captain, not under as much media scrutiny up here.

can also enjoy the culinary delights.
Like the $7.50 special from Georgetown Fish & Chip Shop.... ;)

I meant that the old Magpies fans would have got a bit of joy watching Manly move the players on to accommodate Pearce and thinking they had him only to have him sign elsewhere (harking back to the 70's where Manly pilfered the Maggies.)

Well it's not clear if Sione is going to be playing for the Knights (let alone captain):

It's a big call. Probably the right one OR move him to a Bench/casual player depending on doctors advice.
If the guy is blacking out now, image what he will be doing in 3 years time. I imagine some xray will say his Brain sits dangerously in his head or something. I also get worried about playing people when they are 18... start them at 21 and their bone structure is a little better/no more growth spirts....(unsure how much this effects concussions).

IMHO we probably should have pulled Liam Fulton sooner. If he sues us it's probably a fair case.... Hope we would settle out of court and keep the guy as a Club champion.

I never said they did that in the 70's, just that they pilfered Wests.
