    How is the embarrassing?

    He would slot straight in and give such an edge with his intensity.

    So many wins came last year on the back of him just giving the team passion and a mental toughness, imagine that with the team this year?

    Feck Willo off, BK to lock and menzies and backrow.

    You can be embarrassed all you want, flip.

    I'd have him back in a heartbeat.

    I would have no problem giving BK a contract if he was to show up every week and play 60 mins.

    The problem here is we have given a $3 contract to a bloke who works in a fruit barn just in case of injury. He hasn't been training, playing... nothing!

    This is a result of our club not being able to pick up any forwards this season. As great as BK is, he wouldn't have a contract right now if the club could have secured another signature.

    what a champion- while it's unlikely to happen I'm proud that after such a short stint at the club (relatively speaking) he is so loyal to the place. I'm with you Nutz- I'd have him back in a heartbeat.

    Yeah Flip - stop being a tool, taking a contrary stance on something just for the sake of it.

    You know damned well BK is superior to blokes like Willo and Cuthbertson even if he has been packing fruit boxes for 9 months.

    I'd take a fruit packing BK over any other forward in the comp any day.

    Really?

    Am I the only one who can see he's been away from the game in a fruit barn for 9 months doing no training at all.

    If injuries occur we expect him to be there at the drop of a hat and just slide into NRL level like he never left?

    I hope it works, but my brain tells me its not as easy as it seems.

    Great news, to be honest it's great we have such a champion like BK to have played for our club. Even better that he feels more loyalty toward Manly than Newcastle.

    IMO he has made a greater impact to the club than Beaver.

    Should I put my flack jacket on?

    IMO when Manly needed Beaver to shape up and show leadership 4 years ago he simply drifted and offered little.

    BK bought back the killer instinct into the whole club, as soon as he started. There's know way Beaver could ever do that.

    In fact BK rejuvenated Beavers career. By giving him a competitive edge back into the club.

    Its a good point byso.

    IMO beavers hanging around during the times of the Beagles makes him a legend of the club. More than anything Kennedy did.

    But BK did bring back the fire to the team. While beaver doesn't make a good captain he is streaks ahead of BK at the manly club. IMO.
