    Broncos were trying to get Brad Thorn for the NRL 9s. So how about Manly give the Beaver a swansong in Manly colours? It has no salary cap implications & if he stays reasonably fit over summer, why not?

    Depends.

    If it affects our salary cap or not (probably will)

    Beaver is a legend.

    He is too old and slow for nines.

    Can't see why. 9s has nothing to do with the NRL premiership.

    the 9's are a waste of time so we might as well send beaver, cliffy and bozo as part of our team

    I doubt the 16 NRL teams don't see it as a waste of time when the prize money for winning it is worth more then winning the actual premiership o_O

    They will think that it is a waste of time when one of their stars goes down with a long term injury which is bound to happen.

    We wouldn't be happy if snake played and tore his hamtrsing

    I don't know about that, in my book he has a pretty impressive career across two codes. Not much he hasn't achieved, NRL Premiership, SOO, Kangaroo Jumper, Super Rugby title, European Rugby title, Rugby World Cup title.

    Pretty impressive CV if you ask me.

    I thought I read somewhere that each team was committed to playing a minimum number of their 'stars' to this comp. Otherwise many teams would be doing exactly as you propose above.
    I am sure each team would love to give all their players a well earned rest before pre-season starts but I doubt player welfare is of much importance to the nrl, they will have promised the promoters a star studded event and teams that don't comply will be screwed over, well some of them anyway, us being top of that list

    If Beaver made an appearance at the Nines half of Manly Warringah would travel to Auckland. That would be quite awesome !

    So you would have Blair in the squad before our leading try scorer for 2013?
