  1. Seriously why the he’ll would we keep Davis. He did the same thing as Williams and should have been sacked as well.
    Amateur hour continues at Parra.

    • Good question.
      We still have a swag of players off contract, a couple of which I’d like to re-sign ASAP, being Hayne and Teripo, whilst some of the others, well that depends.
      For example, Pritchard, who is still off contract, and we let King go, so I’m hoping / expecting we’re lining up an experienced hooker (yes, Api) and probably keep Pritchard for depth.

    • Ah Manly.
      If you’re going to blame a club for a player’s action, then what about “fly spray boy”?
      That would speak volumes wouldn’t it, thinking he could beat the breatho by spraying insect repellant in his mouth.
      But personally, I don’t blame a club for a player/s actions.

      • Hahaha nice try fly spray boy was never good was he? Williams at manly became a monster after his stint on parras bench and wing lol now hes an alcoholic and druggie. He probably parties with Norman and the hayne plain
