    Good to see him conducting the player interviews for the MWSE site. He's a lot more animated, and polished, than some that have tried. Plus he would know the players really well. And, of course, he was a legendary Sea Eagle.

    Like a lot of us the years are catching up...LOL.
    Gone are the long gold locks etc, but it was good to see him on the mike...and I'll never forget watching him as a kid. Geez he was a star.

    Neil Evans was a loss so I too hope he keeps this gig.

    Johnny Gibbs was coaching a team I played against as a kid in a district tournament at the Central Coast and was kind enough to autograph my oversized shoulder pads. Problem is I still had to wear the shoulder pads so the sweat started getting to the ink. But I meticulously traced over his signature after every game I played for the next three seasons, just to make sure he was still with me.

    Johnny Gibbs was my favorite player - as a little kid I remember the blonde hair and the speed off the mark....and of course the hammy injuries. The whole reason I started going for Manly....good to see an old legend back.

    The first game I ever went to as an 11 y/o he was playing under 23s. Socks down, head back, simply carved up the opposition (the roosters). I remember the number on his back was number 53 or 55 - good grief that was nearly 40 years ago
