I'm not going to do it, but I really like Fainu. Problem is, that situation at Manly is so volatile. Croker could be back as soon as next week. He's going to score great and make good money in however many weeks he has as an 80min hooker, though.
Thing is, though, he still seems to be getting around 60min even when he and Koro are sharing the role, and he can score big in those 60min. So either way he's not a bad option. If he was $380 it'd be a no-brainer. $480k, and I'd probably still take a stab. But $580k is probably just a bit too much for me to take the gamble.
But I do still think there's value there.
I heard on 100% Footy that Manly are allegedly happy for Koro to explore other options and they won't stop him should he wish to leave the club. I'm genuinely surprised there's no more interest in him from other clubs. If both have 80min hooking roles next year I'd be most interested in both of them.
