    The mail is that he will be making his 1st grade debut tomorrow, on the wing.
    Anyone know much about him? I have seen him play a couple of times this year and he goes ok. Great to see a local jr getting a crack.

    Does anyone know if he is the son of the actor Eric Oldfield who used to live in Harbord?

    His first album was a critically claimed success. Mike Oldfield is a brilliantly talented - yet reluctant and shy - musician, whom was first discovered by Richard Branson. Now he's on the wing for Manly - great stuff :^)

    His second album, following Tubular Bells, was named after another Eagle great Hergest Ridge.

    And it was also a Number 1 in the UK.

    He goes really good on the wing, I saw one toyota cup game where he caught a bomb on our goalline, pushed off the defender and ran 100 metres to score. He's big for 20's, gets into dummy half and makes some runs. He will be up against a tough customer in Nightingale. Great to see another local boy in 1sts. People needc to remember he's only 19!! Anyway, as long as he does his best that's all we can ask.

    I think he'll go ok. Probably swap a bit with Robbo between FB and Wing

    Thta was the 1st game he played fullback and I wouldn't be putting him there. There is no one else other than Robbo!! We have to leave Matai, Lyon, T rex, Keiran and Hodko in their normal positions.

    It sounds like no one knows much about the guy. I suppose we will know in 24hours.
