What all the talk of lowball offers tells me, is that none of the Cleary clangers are moving on.

If they’re not moving on I suspect Madge will be trying to find a way to get some game time from them. If they’re here, we need to extract everything we can from them and hope they surprise us.

Maybe ball boys or water runners. As for NRL standard footballers, those days are well past them. Benji was a mile in front of them and not many people don’t agree Benji’s day had come to a end

What all the talk of lowball offers tells me, is that none of the Cleary clangers are moving on. The faint hope that one or even two of Cleary’s duds might find a new home has all but evaporated. It would appear that a large chunk of our cap will once again be sitting on the side line…and you wonder why we never get above 9th

My biggest gripe is back in the Taylor days we were constantly being told that our cap was in diabolical state due to previous management and was going to take up to three years to get the place in a competitive place. Now we are in the same deep hole. Okay Ivan was the man who dug the hole, but the current board and CEO except for the chairman are the ones who gave Cleary the shovel.

I am sick of waiting in hope and I am sick of excuses. Anyway most people are already writing us off for next year and do you blame them. When your my age 2022 is a long way off

Sterlo has never really had too much great stuff to say about WT (with good reason for the most part), not sure if Wests and Balmain gave him a going over in his playing days? He spoke what we all pretty much know. In a perfect world it would be unreal to get his footy knowledge to our club.

Always talks brooks up, can’t we get him in for a bit of training

i think he just calls a spade a spade

Normally he calls a spade a spade but he doesn’t mind putting the boot into WT either, have noticed that for a decade or more. His expertise at halfback play would probably be lost in this day and age of ad-neaseum 5th tackle mindless bombs etc.
Sad part that has gone out of RL, the pure footy player who sees plays one tackle ahead.

If there is one club in the NRLthat deserves having the boot kicked swiftly up the bottom, it’s our mob.

We stagger from one salary cap disaster to another. Our recruitment and retention is another disaster and of course our results are terrible. We need more people like Sterlo to put the boot in with the hope it may bring change

It is changing and not because of Sterlo and a bunch of agenda ridden sprukers (wouldn’t call them journalists.

I doubt Sterlo has a axe to grind against our mob, I think he calls it as he sees it. Of course the same could not be said about most of the other NRL mouth pieces in the media

Sick of the whole Benji media circus. Really I don’t care how he found out that he was not getting a gig in 2021, and yes I understand he is not happy and wants another year to go out on his terms, but there are about 8 other guys being shown the door, rightly or wrongly, but there is no media circus with them.

Bitterness gets you nowhere and is such a negative emotion to deal with and some people can never rid themselves of bitterness. Anyway, I hope he finds a new club, has a good year and retires with a smile on his dial

Bottom line is once the penny dropped for Parra that the guy was not going to backflip he was pushed down to the bottom of the list. Okay they still used him a few times, but I guess they knew injuries could hit and he might be needed as a last resort.

Anyway it is impossible to judge anything on his few minutes he got this year, you would imagine he was not happy with Parra and Parra was not happy with him. Long hard offseason with Madge might see a different player next year…fingers crossed

With limited roster positions do you resign Huth or McIntyre???The Huff was very good tonight although Iam a fan of slamming Sam

Huth is on the WTs official list for players departing this year so that looks like a no for him.

There’s an official list?

List presented to those in corporate hospitality tonight

Well there you go…like mushroom the members are kept in the dark but the big end of town are feed the goss…I am I surprised…he’ll no

There was a presentation at Half Time which listed all departing players as well as listing them all on the big screens

Yes but many paid up members were not at the game

Garner deal to Manly apparently all but signed off on.
Tigers really trying to free up roster spots, not so much cap space.
Player market could be very interesting this off season. A lot of clubs in trouble with Salary cap etc due to the drop so i have been told.

Personally i think McIntyre has forced the club to consider releasing Garner. He has had a great debut year and think he could really make that spot his own next year.
Hopefully Blore can get his fitness up and would make a great impact off the bench.

Was told last week the Garner deal is done. This came from a guy who works for a company that has half the Manly players on their books.
