    I think there is a real underlying problem with fitness at Manly.

    Last year we had problems with:-

    01. Terry Hill had weight problems
    02. Daniel Heckenberg had weight problems
    03. Jason King had "build" problems
    04. Jim Curtis was struggling with pre season fitness

    We have now bought:-

    01. Sione Finefeuiaki ballooned out from a winger to a prop
    02. George Rose is the worst of all. Even to the point that articles are written about it

    Then there's:-

    03. Kane Cleal has had to work on body shape

    I know the club were advertising for fitness instructors on its official site. Does this mean there is a changing of the guard?


    Wheel - Notice Des Hasler has said Rose will be good back up if necessary. I think that means Dessy won't have him in the 1st 17 to start with.

    Most clubs have a fat squad.

    LOL Fonz! Yes, its up to the players too to discipline themselves. No good going out there and training hard all day and then go home and having a thousand big mac's! They are given guidance and advice, but they still have to take it on board and do it themselves.

    No i mean every club has their share of fattys. It's got nothing to do with fitness (Manly would be one of the fittest clubs) and it's got nothing to do with diet (all clubs have dieticians). It's about individual players and their bodilly reactions to these training methods. Which is why manly are gene testing. To maximise training benifits hence maximising potential.
