    At last count there were 53 players to score over 100 tries in a first grade career. 7 of them played for Manly for all, or part, of their career. Can we name all 7 ? (try it without Google, although there is only probably one that might test you out)

    You got 4 right jjai.

    Yes Stewie is an obvious one given his little "Gallop" to celebrate the century.

    Well Irvine and Menzies are pretty obvious as they hold the records for overall, and for a forward respectively. Stewie we have also established cracked the ton this year.

    Of the others you named, you could say that one will live for ever on the try scoring list, and the other is staring right at you about to pass you the ball.

    Of the final two, one scored only one of his 137 tries in Manly colours, but won 9 premierships and represented NSW and Australia. The other played in our 76 and 78 GF's.

    Fulton is definitely one - and as far as I know only three players have scored more than 100 playing for Manly.

    Yes Beaver, Bozo and Bullet are the only players to score a hundred tries for Manly.

    So we have in order

    Irvine 212
    Menzies 180
    Fulton 147
    Blake 138
    ?????? 137
    ?????? 112
    Stewart 108

    Of his 137 tries, Eddie Lumsden only scored 1 of those in his brief 4 game career with Manly. Lumsden moved from Kurri Kurri in 1955 to play with Manly. After just four games he was ruled ineligible on the grounds he didn’t reside in the area. He went onto to have a 158 game career with the Dragons, between 57-66, winning 9 premierships over that time.
