Rhys Armstrong released by Manly

Came through the grades with Brooks & Moses. Looked great in his short appearances for NYC in 2014. Apparently Manly threw big money at him and got him for 2 years. Missed all of 2015 through injury and has now been released. Admit I didnt see him in NSW cup this year but could be worth a look.

A clever player and played five eighth when the TIgers won the SGBALl. It would be nice to bring him home (would have been nice to have Brown back as well).

There were big wraps on him at the time, but obviously not now. So many players with “next big thing” just don’t really do anything, won’t even bother starting a list of names, we can all think of 10.

180cm. Too small, if we are talking second rowers. We need some size. I’d be looking at Abraham Papalii. Roosters have second rowers coming out of their backsides, so might be a while before he get a crack at the top level

we already have players like this in our club, can’t compare skill just build.

is now with the tigers on a trial and train basis. hopefully he can impress and start to realise the potential he showed in the juniors.

Nice to know. Thanks FF.

Good luck Lad. Fire up!
