Those three words are a huge thing man.

IF ITS TRUE.

We can't sit here as say that Wayne is doing nothing. Dude it may not even be true. If it is, man we have no idea what the hell is going through Wayne's mind.

We just gotta wait and see then bro!

~shrugs~ If all rumours were true then our 2006 team would be minus Anderson, Faumuina, Guttenbeil, Wiki and Price. When it happens it happens, if not then I won't be surprised.

Unless there is absolute rock hard evidence no point going on about it. This person was silly to install something like this year. There are OTHER forums to posting this sort of stuff in and not here really

Id pick Ah VAn at centre over Vuna. Vuna for wing at this stage. Ah VAn has got Steve Renouf quality written all over him. Like what I see from Miguel Start as well.

At this stage Ah Vans ahead of the both of them from what ive seen. But id put Start before Vuna.

yes good on the club for holding onto two promising young ones.
Mannering went ok for the Orcas the other night back in the second row.

Vodafone Warriors Sign Vatuvei And Mannering To End Of 2009

Winger Manu Vatuvei and utility Simon Mannering have strengthened the Vodafone Warriors’ future by signing with the club until the end of the 2009 National Rugby League season.

Vatuvei (20), who featured in all five tests in the Kiwis’ triumphant 2005 Tri-Nations campaign, today agreed terms for a contract extension while Mannering (19), the club’s 2005 rookie of the year, has been signed for a further two years with an option for a third. Vodafone Warriors head coach Ivan Cleary said securing two of the club’s most talented young players was a huge boost.

“Manu made enormous strides in 2005, going on to become a quality test player, and Simon showed in his initial first-grade appearances last year that’s he has the ability to make a big impact in the game,†he said.

“Part of our philosophy is keeping as much of the best young New Zealand talent in the country as possible and we’ve certainly succeeded in doing that with these two players.

“They’re both important to the Vodafone Warriors’ future as we seek to develop a core of players.â€Â

The signings of Vatuvei and Mannering come just two weeks after vice-captain Ruben Wiki extended his contract by a year, taking him through to the end of the 2008 season.

The 109kg Vatuvei made his NRL debut as an 18-year-old in 2004. A hamstring injury has kept him out of the Vodafone Warriors’ last three matches after he had scored in each of the first four games of the season, stretching his try-scoring sequence to 13 tries in his last 15 first-grade outings.

Mannering, able to play in the centres or the back row, made the first of his seven NRL appearances against Brisbane last June. His start to the 2006 season was hampered by a stress fracture in his leg but he has been back in action at Bartercard Cup level for the last two weeks, scoring three tries for the Wellington Orcas.

Cleary credited the club’s Allied Work Force elite development programme for successfully identifying and preparing players like Vatuvei and Mannering for the NRL. This had been reinforced just this month with Patrick Ah Van and Misi Taulapapa making their first-grade debuts for the Vodafone Warriors.

Cleary said he expected more graduates from the system would be seen playing in the NRL this season.

While announcing the Vatuvei and Mannering signings, the Vodafone Warriors also completed a restructuring of their football department today by confirming Dayne Norton’s signing to fill the new position of sports science co-ordinator.

The son of Kiwi assistant coach Graeme Norton, Dayne was the New Zealand team’s trainer for last year’s Tri-Nations campaign and has previously worked for the Vodafone Warriors as a trainer.

Right ..... next stop sione, webby and Toops

Sioni's not off contract, & i'd sign evarn WAYYYYYYYY before mannering. Vatavai has PROVED himself. mannering hasn't. i don't care about toopi he needs to go, has anyone forgot his 2004-5 years, & isn't it conveinent he trys when he's off contract. Who knows what happens if we sign him & he plays like shite again, are you willing to take that risk for 300,000. I WOULDN'T BE. Evarn would be a bargain & hes showing us what hes capable of.

Evarn would be a bargain & hes showing us what hes capable of. We should defintitly keep el webbo, but if we know for sure he's leaving, sign wade mcinnion before it's too late. Wade is still off contract but parra are starting too sign so managment sign webb now or let him go.

Definatly try and keep webby, he will be a major loss. Awesome about manu. I agree that toopi should look else where. Im not very sure about signing mannering, hope he didn't cost much.
