    That would make sense except he played round 2

    I'm not certain - only a fan looking in from the outside. It could be that he played the one game and he and the coaching staff then spoke about playing a few games in reserves until he's fully ready. Again, not sure. I don't think there's any ill will between Herman and the coaching staff. I remember reading something about Browny being the one who called Maguire about Herman pulling out from the NZ Test. I think they're fairly close, so I suspect that there is more to Herman's stint in reserves than form alone.

    Ese says quitting the club is not an option.

    He is here to work hard and cement a regular first grade spot. Great attitude if true.

    Quote,
    "Im here for another two years and I'm not looking elsewhere," he said yesterday. "I'm just looking to be a better player and trying to better myself each week. That's all I'm trying to do. Just working hard and keeping my head down."

    Now all we need is The Mole/Buzz/Kent to confirm the rumour and I can rest easy knowing it’s not true.

    Have there been any indications that he wants out? The frustration of not playing earlier in the season has passed and he’s a mainstay in the team now. 300k is ridiculously good for what he’s shown but I can’t fathom a Levi situation on being on the outer with the coach as he has a simple job which he does well.

    That said if he gets more then double what he’s on now after November 1st, so be it and good luck to him.

    We are very strong in the middle forwards, with our strongest including bench we still have the likes of JSaf, Saulo and King and most are mid 20’s with still a few years of improvement left, we could afford to lose 1 or 2 but wouldn’t like to especially our top 5 which includes Ese’ese.

    Saulo, Jake Saifiti and Jirah Momoisea all look ready to step into firstgrade.
    If we could take a 500k prop off the salary cap, put in Jirah for 100k, and spend the extra 400k on the fullback/centre/wing we need, it wouldn't be a bad deal.
    If we could throw in Moga as well, we'd have some pretty decent money to spend in the next 2 weeks - just no one to spend it on.
