Are there any up and coming halves in the NYC we could look at for depth?

Mapesone goes alright. Don't think he's NRL quality at the moment though.

I like the look of Scott Drinkwater from Storm currently playing in the Under 20s, Shaun Nona from Dragons, Mitchell Cornish, Fa'Amanu BROWN from Sharks is my personal favourite tbh

Fa'amanu Brown is currently off contract and I seem to remember him making his NRL debut last season. I don't know much about him besides that though. What kind of player is he?

He's quick I can tell you that, can cover at dummy half as well. A solid player to bring in as depth.

The club should really look at getting some under 20s talent from other clubs. Look at all the players that have debuted recently. They won't demand much money and they'll be some handy depth.

The absolute last thing we need to be looking at is POTENTIAL

Time to move on , clean out the roster and start signing some hard heads with big match experience

I'm just talking about for depth. Grab a couple good NYC players, stick em in ISP and build strong competition for spots. Just talking about getting some cheap up and comers.

YES ,YES, YES, there is a wealth of talent in the u20s and the nsw cup, all the club needs is for some one to scout the clubs and there is plenty to pick from and who would be willing to play for a lot less than the players we have now, who think they are better than they are, teddy is the exception however.

Not so much from NYC but isn't Ash Taylor off contract at the Titans at the end of the season, has shown more last year and start of this year then MM has and probably a better goal kicker to.

I think Viera Mapesone is a player that Ivan Cleary could transform into a good five-eight. His profile reads:-
After two strong seasons with the Club’s Holden Cup side, Veiru makes the transition into the senior grades for 2017.
Not afraid to take on the line, Veiru is a talented playmaker who will look continue his development in the 2017 season.
Veiru joins his 2016 Holden Cup halves partner Thomas Bartley in the part-time training squad, with both players providing quality depth in the playmaking roles for 2017.
During the 2016 Holden Cup season, the Eagle Vale St. Andrews junior scored nine tries and made an impressive 21 try-assists.
A Campbelltown-product who can play numerous positions, Veiru is a smart and professional footballer with sharp footwork.
In his spare time, Veiru also enjoys playing touch football and spending time with his family.

Mapesone is a runner but isn't much of a playmaker. We need to sign a playmaker for this season and a young half with potential for the future. Every club should have a promising young playmaker at the club

Jackson Hastings.
But he has a two year contract with Manly expiring at the end of next year (but it doesn't really mean anything anymore, does it?)
