    <p>He's a back-rower who can play five-eighth, but this is 2009 and Chris Bailey is hoping he can give Manly at least a little of what club legend Steve Menzies gave them in their NRL premiership year.</p>

    His defence has been strong, made about 30 tackles last week without a miss and he does improve flexibility.

    He has been a solid addition, seems a few of these articles are out to give the fans the knowledge that the guys do believe they are good enough

    I thought he really stepped up last week. He threw himself into every tackle right from the start. It looks like the team is definitely coming together.

    Bailey has been a flop. To even put him in the same sentence with The Beaver is an insult.

    Beaver made breaks. Beaver tackled like a machine. Beaver made a difference.

    Bailey is right up there with Tony Williams as the worst buy of the year - and is the reason I guess Des has had to move him out of 5/8 etc.

    I think Bailey has been solid all year. He is not Darren Lockyer and not the Beaver but he is a honest toiler that every teams needs. He does a lot of defensive work and gets his metres. He also runs straight and hard. A good buy in my view!

    The sharks carved Bailey up in defense. He can be a little slow getting across.

    I guess the old "If it ain't broke don't fix it" rule comes to mine here. Our halves were working and we toyed with them

    I think Beaver is a bit of a stretch, but perhaps more like Willo.

    Baily's getting better.  In the early part of the season I may have agreed with Ryan, but he seems to be poking his nose through the line, getting off-loads happening and supporting.  Takes time I guess.  Worth his money, which musn't be to much.  No Beaver but OK.
