    I played 2 seasons with Manly
    ... but Manly is not the only major club I played for.
    However I never played against Manly!
    I did play finals footy for Manly
    ... and I also played some rep footy.
    The year after I left Manly they won the comp!
    I am one of an exclusive group of only 8 players in regards to one well-known aspect of my career.

    I'm sure you all know of me … My name is . . . ?

    but no.
    The exclusive group is nothing to do with NSW/Qld - but it is connected with where he came from...

    Grail is correct, it's Gary Stephens!

    I played 2 seasons with Manly = 1976 & 1977

    ... but Manly is not the only major club I played for = Castleford Wigan & Halifax

    However I never played against Manly! = never played for any other Aussie team

    I did play finals footy for Manly = 1976 & 1977

    ... and I also played some rep footy = played for England against Wales and for Great Britain against New Zealand and Australia

    The year after I left Manly they won the comp! = he left after 1977 and we won in 1978 (of course we won with him in the team in 1976 but I conveniently forgot to mention that!)

    I am one of an exclusive group of only 8 players in regards to one well-known aspect of my career = Gary Stephens is one of only eight Englishmen to have played in Australian National Rugby League Grand Final winning teams

    He was a pretty good player too.
