    How can you doubt this guy, his composure on the line is incredible. I cant recall too many he has missed. He needs to be here at manly to finish his time

    Of course. One of the top 3 class acts to ever wear The Maroon & White.

    Never thought I would ever see a fullback as good as Graham Eadie.

    I was wrong.

    Some players just take the right option, and I would say that Snake and Killer are 2 of the best I've seen at that. If a try is on through a pass, they'll pass. If a run is needed, they do that. If a little kick is needed they do that.

    He has stuffed up a few in his time. But then, when you've played some 10 years in first grade you won't get everything right every time.

    He's scored and set up a hell of a lot more than he's messed up. And he's saved a lot more too.

    Yes he has, but he scores so many that we easily forget the almost tries :giggle:

    Snake is nowhere near Wombat in skillset or results. @:cool:

    Never thought i d see a Manly FB quite a bit better than Graham E, but i do every week, . . . Week after week, year after year. Different eras, different styles etc But call a spade a spade.
    Snake's speed, anticipation, defence, passing, and stats all surpass Graham Eadie. Hope he has a 1 club finish

    I thought snake over ran him a bit but Foz should maybe have passed a fraction sooner

    Brett is fantastic HM-much better than Eadie in many facets. But wombat played a vital role in Manly winning 4 GFs in 7 years. He is a mate of mine, and still supports the boys like he is part of the team. Let's say they are both great champions of this mighty club! We are so lucky indeed!

    I will lay my left nut that Tom ends up being better than both

    As of tonight, Snake has scored 85 tries in 90 games at Brookvale. That's 94.44%.

    He's also moved from =8th on the all time NRL list with Nathan Merritt to outright 8th with 156 career tries. He only needs another 3 tries to equal Hazem El Masri and Matt Sing who sit on 159.

    Our Don Bradman.

    I'll never forget the try he bombed in the 2009 WCC. Watmough couldn't have thrown a better pass to put Snake away but Snake spilt it under no pressure.

    But nobody is perfect and he will forever remain one of our best players. It's true when people say he's worth at least 12-18 points per game to our side.

    Pittwater, Brett scored two other tries in that match. Manly won by 8. 2 x 4 = 8.
