  1. Surprised Manly’s announcement of who is getting culled for next year wasn’t put on here! Some decent players are up for grabs. Satini, Leary, Starling, Green, Lavaka and Hodges are all decent.
    Starling and Hodges probably the pick of the bunch. He is first grade bench player material.

  2. Eels please develop Twal & Dargan they are our future and personally I think Twal deserves a debut next season.

    • Dargan at 6 and Norman at 7 and they’ll do good together I reckon. I think Robson would be good at 9 or bench 14 with De Gois at 9. Twal should play the whole year next year FG, he bullies players in 20s for days and has a great motor. Can’t believe you’s let go Fuimaono tho

      • Dargan is a bit off first grade yet, a year in nsw cup then might be good after that. Twal will get a bit of first grade next year but spend most of it in nsw cup. Fuimaono isn’t highly rated and will struggle big time in first grade and hasn’t really progressed much. Also rabbits through him a better deal then what we could offer him but his nothing fancy.
