    Looking at the 72 team yesterday I got wondering who has won the most for manly. Is it eadie with 4 (+ losses in 82 and 83, and a draw in 78)? I don't think branighan was in 1sts in 76, although he came on in 78, so he may have 3?

    Bozo 3 as a player, 2 as a coach.

    If you ask that question in 3 years the answer will be Geoff Toovey with 3.

    Graham Eadie has played in the most 1st grade GFs for Manly - seven (4 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw).
    Terry Randall and Ian Martin - six.
    Cliff Lyons, Bob Fulton, Steve Menzies, Alan Thompson - five.
    Fred Jones, Max Krilich, Bill Hamilton - four.

    Only Fulton, Eadie, Hamilton and Lyons weren't local juniors. Only Lyons played for another Sydney club before joining Manly, he left Norths when they sacked the caoch, Greg Hawick. So much for buying premierships.

    Yes and no. You're right about Cliff, my mistake. But Krilich had retired because of a chronic neck problem some weeks before the 1983 GF. Ray Brown was the hooker in that one.

    Robbo played in 3 - 07/08/11
    Tom Mooney played in 3 - 76/78/78
    Danny Moore and Craig Hancock only played in 2 out of the 95/96/97 games. Can anybody confirm if John Hoppa played in all 3?

    I am not sure that the GF replays in 78 count as two Grand Finals? I remember each of these so well and am very grateful for Dvds and boring days for a chance to relive the moments. The joy in my very young heart in 72 and 73 was something to behold, though being at the ground for 87, 96, 2008 and 2011 certainly beat the despair of being at losing games in 82, 95, 97.

    Great thread this one!!!
