    To make room for Joel Monaghan. Not a bad CV for him either

    181 NRL games (Penrith and Manly) - played in the GF
    81 games for Warrington - 2 Challenge Cup Wins (one he scored a hat trick in - only a handful of players have done so)

    2 games for NSW Country

    Certain irony there...
    Manly wanted Monaghan to join the club years ago, where he probably would have partnered Chris Hicks in the backline, but he chose the Goosters instead.
    Now he replaces Hicks in the UK after being a caught out being a very naughty boy. How different might J Monaghan's career trajectory been if he had played with Michael at Manly?

    I really liked Hicks as a player.  A very good finisher.  I remember Bani making a break at Brookie and turning to a bloke standing next to me on the hill and saying, 'there's the bloke who'll replace Hicks".  Turned out it was Hick's dad.

    Did Mr Hicks take a swing ??

    I liked CHicks, good solid player, and great clubman.

    Still can't believe Hicks didn't play for NSW.

    Could've used him this year. Great finisher, and goal kicker.

    One of the best banners I've seen over the years.

    Good luck Hicksy.  I always thought it was a shame he wasn't there for our success in 08.

    Reserves for the panthers in 03.  That was the year Rooney and Lewis broke into grade and were on the wings.

    "FORMER Sea Eagles grand final winger and Wembley Cup final hero Chris Hicks is considering a stunning switch to the Warringah Rats in 2011."

    Hicks to Parra? They need depth in outside backs, have plenty of money to spend...
