    It's pissing down rain here today and everyone is bored ****less.  My young bloke has been digging around in his room and found an official teams album from 1999.  Here is how we lined up for the season, in no particular order.

    Anthony Colella, Jamie Olejnik, Jim Serdaris, Alf Duncan, Scott Fulton Craig Field, Adam Peters, Daniel Gartner, Andrew Hunter, Neil Tierney, Graham Mackay, Steve Menzies, Nik Kosef, Damian Driscoll, Andrew King, Owen Cunningham, Albert torrens, Adam Hayden, John Hopoate, Geoff Toovey, Brendan Reeves, Andrew Frew, Steven Crouch, Terry Hill, Luke Philips.

    Coach - Bob Fulton.
    Assistant coach - Peter Sharp.

    Some handy players in there.  How many, if in their prime, would you like to see in the team for next year?

    OJ was all heart.
    Andrew King was a good player.
    Garts was ok.

    Kosef
    Tezza
    Hoppa
    Tooves (as a hooker)

    These and Sedaris as well. Remember him tearing it up in the '96 Grand Final

    I remember being at the Broncos game at Brookie that year when after looking gone..... they scored a couple of quick tries, to tie the scores late in the game..... what an amazing atmosphere!

    They then scrapped & fought their way to around the 40m line and got off a horrible kick at drop goal that never had a chance. Only for the Broncs the effortlessly work their way down field, to about 20m out for Lockyer to have all the time in the world to kick one for them. It missed.... but only just and the game ended in a draw. I had $100 on a Manly win too.....

    Oh boy...... 6 months until next season! It feels like a lifetime.
