Second viewing - I watched Moylan effort & clinical execution (for the most part) & I watched Johnson lack of effort on 1%‘s & poor execution.

SJ, dear oh dear. How can a player with that much class & experience not take advantage of 13 on 12 for 64 minutes & 13 on 11 for 10 minutes? Bloody shameful.

I noticed Moylan made several important tackles on Walsh - good to see.

I agree with Gal the Goat, I don’t think there would be a better value 5/8 out there than Moylan. I stand by my 400k PA for 2 years; but I don’t think it will quite get it done as ironically, he seems to be playing with too much consistency & free of niggling injuries.

Foran going to GC closes one option for him. I cannot believe GC dished out 750k for Foran per season. Foran seems to got over his mental health issues which is great, and he seems to be playing a controlling role at Manly, but 750k per season?

Personally, I would have 2021 & 2021 version of Moylan ahead of 2021 & 2022 version of Foran - I am clearly missing something.

Did they really pay 750k per season? Wow, I thought it was for two.

That **** house club never learns.

I googled “Foran GC how much” - first story said 750k per season. I dove deeper, fox sport quoted 400k per season which is surely more like it.

Forgetting money for a minute, who would you rather have right now - Foran or Moylan? Tough one.

A few weeks ago i was against re signing moylan on a 2 year deal.

But you are all right, there is nobody else on the market who can the job he is currently doing.

So in saying that, i would offer him the 2 year deal. However for his second year i would put in some KPI'S ect to keep the bloke motivated and hungry.

I think if we can keep him in his current role he's a lock for a 2 year contract.
I menioned a while back that he'd finished every game he started for us at 6, and has continued to do that. It's just putting that fullback workload on him that's the problem.
The role Fitz has him fill now is one where he can float in and out, call the ball when he wants and kick when he wants. It lets him have those flashes of inspiration without the burdon of Kennedy's or Hynes' jobs. So long as they keep doing their thing and working hard, Moylan can do his as well as he is now at a decent price.

Hold your nerve Sharks, Moylan for one year, for me, Moylan still does not have enough credit to warrant a 2 year deal, he has played 9
Are you prepared to lose him to another club that may offer 2 years?

I hope I don't regret saying this but if it is to play 5/8 I would be happy to sign him for a 2 year deal 900k over 2 years.

I was thinking the same thing

If we get to round 20 and his played all 20 - I’d give him a 2 year deal

Can we really wait another 10 weeks tho, Dolphins can’t, how long can we wait?

Moylan - he is more dangerous in attack which is hos main role. Foran seems to cover more of an all rounder roll at Manly.
Not disregarding the above, I wanted to keep Jimmy over Moylan way back when….

As a player I would have rather kept Jimmy but his attitude about it all stank and I didn't want the club to bow to him.
One thing to want more money but he didn't have to take it on field with him - in fact best way to get it would have been to play so well we can't afford not to raise and extend him.

Incredible player but always a bit of a nuisance and in trouble overseas now

Yep **** him, that was incredibly petulant behaviour.
