    The current group need to find this kind of quality and bond between players if we are to make it back to the top again.

    You could see Skivvy was having difficulty managing it, he's not a public speaker anyway but that would be bloody hard to do!!

    Best thing about this video is we have Skivy for another year other wise he'd be having a farewell week celebration as well.

    10 years of having the best centre pairing in the competition. It doesn't get much better than that !

    And 2 top blokes to go with it. Players like them make me proud to be a silvertail.

    Well done to Matai, bloody great message and I had a teary watching him.

    Made me think how fortunate we are to have had both in the maroon and white at the same time, the two best centres in the world.

    Then I started crying more when I thought about the players that may be our centres for next year......no comparison what so ever, different league, different class. (And if the boys ala doorman want to reach the heights of legend status take a look at these two, nothing less will be considered great IMO.)

    Yes I am a hard marker, but when you have had the best the bar is high and nothing below that is truly acceptable.

    Love Killer, love Skivvy and I thank them both so much for giving us something to cheer about for such a long time and for being Manly men.

    Would have loved to see the pair of them play back in the style of inside and outside centres.

    To have seen a deep set backline running on to the ball at pace with Lyon inside Matai and wolfie on the wing would have been sensational.

    Aww Stevie.
    I just want to give him a cuddle.
    Minus two Premierships without those two champions.
    There will never be anyone like Killer. Legend.
    I think this video indicates The Matai is staying onboard. Fantastic news I reckon.

    He's had a lifetime of pain already, do you think that's going to magically change ??
