    Dragging out the old 2008 GF t-shirt for a proud wear I noticed that there are only ten players of the 2008 GF campaign still wearing the maroon & white only three years later.

    Reknowned for minimal player rotation, Des only used 26 players in 2008. To have only 10 players remaining in just a three-year period is remarkable.

    My thoughts after reading the list above -

    Lucky we still don't have NEUMANN, Shane.

    But for the life of me I don't remember BRADLEY-QALILAWA, Nick playing for us, or even who he is.

    And JEFFSON, Rob wishes he was still with Manly.

    Gorgeous George was around too. Just that he was still recovering from that leg break.

    NBQ, tha koala. He was around for years, from back in the just post beagles days. I think 08 might have been a one off last stint.

    Neumann ended up at the Bulldogs, played a few matches there last year, got released and is now in the QLD Cup. You might be thinking of Paul Stephenson who could never get a start with the Sharks and is now playing country football.

    Of the players that left the club. Only the great Beaver and Perry would make this awesome 2011 team.

    What it shows is that we, unlike other clubs that shall remain nameless, don't rort the salary cap.

    It also shows what an awesome recruiting team that we have at Manly.

    And also shows the quality coaching that we have at the club, with blokes like Will Hopoate, Buhrer, Foran, DCE, Oldfield, Lussick all coming through since 2008...........what other team, apart from Brisbane, could boast the quality youngsters that this club has found in recent seasons?
