I don't think he is a great player by any stretch but really disappointing that a bloke like that doesn't finish his career as a one club player. I think when he looks back in 10 years time he'll regret this decision. It's really disappointing for me as a fan of our great club that some of our greatest players also finished their careers at other clubs so I can't even imagine what it's like for the players who bleed for the jersey feel.

Man - with Mautalino and Packer already on the books, it MOGHT make more sense to try and get some form out of them rather than signing Mannah on a 6 month contract...

They were talking about this on MMM over the weekend. Hoops was saying how Cleary paid massive overs on players, especially Mautalino and Packer, and how Madge is going to try and clear the decks to get the cap sorted out first.

So hearing that, the signing makes sense. He’s probably coming over lower than those two.
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

Josh Reynolds @ about $800k per year has played about 10 games for them. Still two more years after this year too.

Yeah I heard that MMM chat as well - I think their biggest issue is they are offloading players that no one wants. Mbye would be a good keep for them, but he is the only one realistically they could offload and have another team pick up the majority of his contract. They will be stuck with Packer and Reynolds.

I completely understand why Maguire would try to clean up that roster - but I cant see how Mannah actually helps if he is only on a 6 month contract. that is unless Packer/Mautalino are actually going to the Eels..

Packer and or Matulino will be more likely to go to the Panthers imo, they played under Cleary at the warriors and then followed him to the tigers....

There is a requirement for him to play a certain amount of games to be eligible for the ESL.

He won't meet that staying at Parra.

Wests Tigers great Farah announces retirement

Wests Tigers veteran Robbie Farah has called time on his decorated career and will go out "on his terms" at the end of 2019.

The decision was been made four to five weeks ago in consultation with coach Michael Maguire but he had decided to wait until milestone games for himself and Benji Marshall were out of the way.
