    i know it's not a Manly issue but Good luck to Matty Ballin this week.

    Picked in the Tigers NSW cup team after a long layoff.

    He's too good for that. Sad to see him in that grade. Get back to the NRL Matty.

    Good luck to that absolute legend of a sea eagle. Wish he was still with us.

    He is an absolute champion but change is part of life and like a few others from our peak period, the time had come. If he hadn't suffered that knee injury I probably wouldn't have minded the club passing on one of either Koroisau or Parcell and use Ballin as the back-up (brings great experience, etc), but he was already slowing down considerably even before the injury.

    I wish him all the very best.

    He'll be good for that club no matter what grade he plays. Could be a future Sea Eagles coach?

    You would like to think that come the end of Matts career he will be involved with the club. A true gent and although you are a tiger right now you forever will be an Eagle!!

    Much in the same way i couldn't fathom seeing Gifty in that feral green and red jersey, it is weird as **** seeing Matty in a black and orange jersey. Wish him all the best for the future.

    Ahhhh yes the Manly legend, Matty B, a true gentleman, with loads of integrity, down to earth, loyal and talented etc, etc.

    Really difficult to see him in anything other than the Maroon and White and knowing it was not his choice to leave, still upsets me to this day.

    Anyway, I really hope he has a bloody awesome game on Sunday and I wish him all the best with the rest of his playing career ............!!

    Would love to see him back at Manly in some capacity in the future.
