From today's Manly Daily. They have a pic of Josh with the following "Manly's marquee signing for 2008, Josh Perry, is looking forward to getting back to playing his best football with the Sea Eagles. " Marquee signing? John Greco 13Nov07 NEW Manly prop Josh Perry has declared he is ready to resurrect his representative career by starring for the Sea Eagles in 2008. Perry made one appearance for NSW in 2003 but a run of injuries and a drop in form has meant the Newcastle junior has failed to add to his tally. After a difficult time at the Knights last season, Perry is confident his best football is still ahead of him and believes working with new coach Des Hasler will help his return to the representative arena. ``It's definitely a goal of mine . . . it was too long ago now,'' Perry said after half of the Sea Eagles squad began pre season training at Narrabeen yesterday. ``I want to get back to rep footy and I'm really focused on playing my best for Manly. Playing Origin again is something I spoke to Des (Hasler) about before I came here. I've got a lot of faith in Des as a coach and I know he's got a lot of faith in me. ``I think the next three years will be my best and hopefully I can get that Blue jersey back.'' First the 26-year-old will just be hoping to crack a spot in the Sea Eagles engine room that already boasts representative quality in Kangaroo prop Brent Kite and Jason King. Manly will also be expecting local junior Adam Cuthbertson to continue his development in 2008 while forgotten prop George Rose is making steady progress from a broken leg. ``It's half of the reason I came here,'' Perry said. ``I want to better myself and I know I'm going to have to be playing my best just to get into the 17 let along the starting line up. ``There's so many good forwards here it's only going to be good for me and the team. ``It's not going to be easy but it's a good move for me and probably what I need.'' Asked the most exciting thing about his move to the peninsula, Perry said: ``It will be good to get back into that winning culture. Just the whole feel about the place is a lot different compared to what happened at Newcastle last year.''
