    Get rid of Willie Mason and you have a pretty good side. Baily to starting prop maybe Webb or Crocker on the bench to add some mongrel

    I agree with that side Ryan- maybe Mason off the bench but I still rate him.

    Definites for Manly's best team:-

    01. Matt Ridge
    02. John Hopoate
    03. Terry Hill
    04.
    05.
    06. Bob Fulton
    07. Geoff Toovey
    08. Paul Vautin
    09. Max Krillich
    10.
    11. Steve Menzies
    12. Terry Randall
    13. Ben Kennedy

    14. Cliff Lyons
    15.
    16.
    17.

    I'd say Ken Arthurson, Allan Thompson (both) & Crusher have to be in there somewhere.

    Des Hasler was good, but not great. So was Jim Serdaris.

    Different coaches Fonz.

    Like O'Donnell - He'll definately be a blue if his club coach is the coach for example.

    No Byso, That's way too tough...I know my players...but that's an impossability...HeHe..

    One thing I'd like to say about City / Country though, is that I'd like to see 4 players in it from Manly that weren't last year.

    01. Matt Orford
    02. Steven Bell (actually - he's a QLD'er forget that) - he might be a SOO bolter if he is made captain of Manly though.
    03. Phew - and here I go - Michael Monaghan at Hooker like I said if everything goes to plan.
    04. Brent Kite - He's now our senior prop. I hope he is made a leader by Des, and he raises the bar from a very impressive year this year.

    PS: I anticipate Choc will be a definite.

    I dont know if there is any point having dunley on the bench if monas is in Hooker. Monas can play the full 80

    That side would cause the biggest stink north of the border since Terry Fearnley was the Aussie coach (not that I disagree with the selections Ryan).

    While Stewart's got the skill, he's just not big enough & should't be picked while Beaver & Watmough are in the team, as they are two of the smallest/lightest 2nd rowers going around as it is.
