    Cuthberson definate faluire, however under Hasler i think he is a better player

    JWH - Dont know why we let him go  he has potential however slighlty overated but he is still only young, he had an OK season

    Jeff Robson - I think he has done real well in a crap team one of their more consistent players

    Travis Burns - Hot and Cold, but you gotta love that mongrel in him, Id still want him at the club

    Micahel Bani - hasnt set the world on fire but can be a Good Player on his day however Farrarr > Bani

    The one the always springs to mind is Aaron Cannings. Such a waste of a player at the Titans. Should have stayed with Manly like King and probably would have been playing 1st grade.

    Matt Orford went well........although he did'nt really leave Manly (Northern Eagles) and we got him back later. Can't think of any others at the moment.

    Shane Neuman played a few FG games for the dogs this year and so did Tim Browne.  Jeremy Smith played with Manly a few years ago and really kicked on when he joined the storm

    loads do go to England/France because they cannot get nrl contracts or not enough money. There hasn't been huge value in signings the past 2 years. Gulavou, Cross, Vaeliki, Seu Seu all come to mind. Like our players who left Neumann, Cuthbo we are quite happy for them to go. Knights fans were happy Bailey went to us (they knew) Most parra fans thought we were mad paying huge overs for T-Rex (jury still out)

    Robson was useless in reserve grade with us but played a nrl grand final with parra.

    However a few years ago we did get Robbo, Hall and Bryant (1 great year each)

    Perry was big dough but was great in 2008.

    JWH has way too much aggression in his game, i can see him getting wiped from it before his time is through if he doesn't learn to control it more

    Cuthbertson - See how he goes at the Panthers
    JWH - will be a great player
    Jeff Robson - solid but nothing great
    Travis Burns - has improved at the Panthers, shows what the Cowgirls do to players.
    Michael Bani - one good year at Manly but again the Cowgirls have screwed up his career. If he was at the Broncos he would be a star.
    Lama Tasi - ?
    Shane Neuman - absolute hack for Manly

    I don't think he did as he was known as technically the first Victorian Junior to play NRL, even though he is from NZ he played mainly in Victoria before joining the Storm

    Not according to wikipedia and about a million other sites.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Smith_%28rugby_league_born_1980%29

    "Although born in New Zealand and recruited by the Storm from Runaway Bay on Queensland's Gold Coast, Smith played the majority of his junior rugby league with the Altona Roosters club in Melbourne. Thus making Smith technically the first local junior to play for the Storm."

    I can not find any reference to him playing for manly at any level

    He played lower grades for us in 2002 when we were the northern eagles.

    It's certainly a concern for a bloke with obvious talent that he has been told to be an enforcer which will likely shorten his playing career.

    Possibly good "right now" coaching rather than anything else
