If Uate and Manley have fallen out as it appears why don’t we take him now ?? We have the quota space


My comment was more towards the great marketing approach suggested

Wow we made hard work of that. Never seen such a farcical end to a game either. Nice that we won by conning a penalty from the ref. Karma.
Not sure what was up with Rankin today - but in that first half I think he forgot he was playing fullback! Some poor kicking from us - some excellent kicking from Catalan.
Interesting penalty count....

Feel like we got away with that but, we're due out slice of luck. The last 3minutes in particular was an absolute farce.

Nice to see a long range try too!

We are about to sign Jackson Hastings from Manly according to some Aussie press.

He would come straight away as Manly want rid due to a bust up/fight with Dally Cherry Evans and he’s only 22 with lots to prove.

Has some bad boy in him, but so did the last very good half back we signed and he didn’t do too bad for us .....

In the current climate this seems to be the only way SL teams can get NRL players who could otherwise get an NRL gig. I'm all for it, could be a star, and exactly what we need. Now to find a big prop who has spilt beer on an NRL coach or similar :D

Seems Woolford is well liked and respected which will help us attract a better quality of player from Aus

Like when you introduce a new dog to the family when you already have one-We need to arrange a meet and greet between Hastings and brough, let them sniff each other’s behinds and make sure they get on before he joins us. :lol: :lol:

Tricky one this. Good player, comes from a tough background, bit of a handful.

Could be a disaster, could be a great move.

Moving away from the limelight of the NRL could well be the making of him. As others have said, it wouldn’t be the first time someone with a difficult reputation has come to the Giants, and it’s often worked out well.

Worth reading some of the articles about him. Whatever else he is, he’s a really interesting bloke. And Wayne Bennett speaks very highly of him, which has to count for something.

He’s a half back and like all h/b’s can play hooker in the modern game. Wouldn’t surprise me to see Brough play some hooker next year if Leeming or O’Brien cop a knock...l
