    MANLY has written to the NRL demanding immediate intervention over an anomaly which will threaten Brett Stewart's looming attempt to become the Sea Eagles greatest-ever tryscorer.

    This has been going on for years. I think they have got buckleys chance of getting the records amended to reflect one club. As disappointing as it is for Beaver, Northern Eagles weren't Manly. They don't do it for any other merged club, so why should we be special ??

    Either way, he will most likely pass Menzies at 180 anyway.

    Yet all the Balmain supporters carry on like the West Tigers are Balmain.

    Saint Merge won the grand final in 2010 and the media said that was the first time since 1979. So why do the get counted as one club when it suits

    "Throughout the Northern Eagles debacle, Menzies always held a Manly-based contract." Well then technically he was playing for Manly.

    The statisticians have their own rules, but not many people really care about what they say. Every Manly fan knows Beaver is a one-club hero, so who cares what Middleton & co think? Menzies is a legend, they are not.

    Just another reason to deny the bears rejoining the competition, bring in Perth instead.

    This is just ****ed and so disrespectful to a man who should be paraded as an ambassador for the game. Ask him who he played for and let him decide

    Benji Marshall has only played for the Wests Tigers

    :S

    Menzies never left to join another club and never played against Manly. That could be enough for them to change the records. I can't complain if they don't though, as I never followed the NE because I didn't consider them to be Manly.
    It's different to counting St George Illawarras premiership as St George's because for almost 20 years both St George and Illawarra were competing as separate clubs, effectively giving the merged club two shots at adding to their tally had either of those clubs won the title. Menzies was not doubling his chances of scoring tries.

    Yeah I missed the bit about the nrl wanting to make changes and exemptions to keep Beaver in the nrl or was I just imaging that. I guess he never achieved as much as folau, sbw and bungi ever have, so not deemed worthy as well as being such a bad role model

    They have all treated St George & StG-Ill as the one club.

    Good to see the media trawling this site for stories too. We were talking about this issue on Sunday night. http://www.silvertails.net/forum/Thread-Snake-now-2nd-to-Beaver-for-tries and earlier this year http://www.silvertails.net/forum/Thread-Snake-s-record-attempt

    The simple and doable solution for Snake is to hurry up and score the 182 try :idea: :)

    I don't believe that Beaver cares for statistics.
    He knows that he has always been a Manly Warringah contracted Player who had represented Sydney City, NSW, Australia and the Northern Eagles.

    I understand both sides of it really

    Technically Northern Eagles was a new club, Beaver never changed clubs to play for them so I consider him a 1 club man, same as I regard Rod Wishart as a 1 club man as Illawarra moved into their merge

    A lot of people here say they never watched the Northen Eagles because they weren't Manly, so it's a bit of 6 of one and half a dozen of the other

    Let's compare the same source denying Beaver's Manly record when it comes to the records of the Joint Venture Dragoons.

    Lets see the media who trawl this forum for news take up that.
