Im with you on this SC. Why anyone would think you could get Marty on the cheap doesnt make any sense.
Because you don't base someone's value on 2 games of football. He has done buggerall at Manly for the most part. You don't pay that kind of money to a player who hasn't proven he's a consistent performer.
He played 21 games last year for an average of 163m in attack and 23 tackles. The year before he did 138m and 27 tackles in 20 games. That's 41 games. Seems pretty consistent to me.
There are those who would point out that Aaron Woods has similar figures "and there's more to it than just stats".

I would take Marty back and let the club figure out the asking price.
Our forward stats last week were a pretty accurate account of our performance and it seems most agreed on that.

I would most certainly welcome Taupau back, but didn't I hear last night on 360 that the Tigers are chasing S.Boyd?
I heard that part but didn't quite pick up whether Kent said Tigers or Titans. After I replayed it a couple of times I'm pretty sure he said Titans.
I actually had the closed captions turned on and the text said Tigers... Excellent prop to add to the rotation if true.

I heard on the radio over the weekend that the Titans have made him a very strong offer that the Raiders are going to find almost impossible to match. Whether the Tigers are also in the mix I dont know

Boyd would be a great addition to the pack and would really help us become a top 8 side. We need some forward upgrades for sure - can’t win much without quality pigs

Fact is he would be our highest paid prop if not player and I doubt IC would value him that high.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

A front row pack of packer, matts, taupau and twal would have to be close to the best in the league.
Would be better with Boyd in the front row and Taupau at lock :)
Its an opinion!

I think some people must live in fantasy world when they start putting values on players heads. Half a million a year doesn't buy a rep player these days. Marty's value would be in excess of 750 a year. His stats of late are better than Tamalomo (excuse the spelling) and he is on a mil a season.

Anyway its all hypothetical, we are neville no chance
Im with you on this SC. Why anyone would think you could get Marty on the cheap doesnt make any sense.
Because you don't base someone's value on 2 games of football. He has done buggerall at Manly for the most part. You don't pay that kind of money to a player who hasn't proven he's a consistent performer.
He played 21 games last year for an average of 163m in attack and 23 tackles. The year before he did 138m and 27 tackles in 20 games. That's 41 games. Seems pretty consistent to me.
That's surprising to me. Every time I've watched him play for Manly he's had very little impact and I remember thinking meh it wasn't such a bad thing we let him go.

Don't get me wrong I was gutted when he left I just don't think he found the same form at Manly.

You must watch different games to me, every Manly game I watch Tapau is in the top 3 players, and for some to say he would be on our bench, bloody hell, we have Rochow in our run on team. :crazy

We hold grudges against players that leave and greatly over rate our own. That is the way of the Tiger I suppose. Taupau is a weapon we thought he couldn’t play big minutes at this level and were wrong. Previous coaches were poor at retention. Addo Carr, Koro, Austin, Nathan Brown and others wouldn’t look bad in a Tigers Jesrsey.
