There were reports they’d go to $1.1 mil. The zero tackle site that lists the players free to negotiate from today says he’s seemingly gone, personally I don’t feel confident. As others have said all signs say he’s leaving so who knows. I see Bennett has endorsed a draft system today, situations like this show why it might be necessary. Momirovski was due an upgrade at the panthers, we were close but he went with the roosters for $300k. Would think we were offering more, maybe not much but if Manu stays for less as well, teams like us are always going to struggle.
Has there ever been many signings announced in early November? I feel the fans just decided it’s a big thing but in reality the signings slowly trickle in till the start of the season. Normally there’s a couple of big fish that have to go first then the teams that missed out go after the scraps. Manu and Smith would probably be the big ones at the moment.
