Probably a bit over the top but has there ever been a better second rower than Beaver, for as long. Had he played in a strong team in the period from 99 to 2005 (and therefore played Rep football) he could be named up there with the very greats of the immortals. His tryscoring alone rates him up with the best ever to play the game. I feel honoured to have supported Manly with him in the team. He can play till 2013 as far as I am concerned.
