    This can not be a good sign

    it's a shame because he was sounding like a decent prospect

    That is the kiss of death for the bloke. 

    The last rookie that was tagged the second fastest Manly player was Adam Luchetti.  He is now making pizzas for a living.

    I am still more concerned with matai giving someone tips on defense....I am guessing it went something like this

    "ah bro, what you want to do bro is that you want to make sure you are about 2 metres from where you should be, then to cover it up rush out of the line and try to put on a big hit bro, if you miss it's ok cause everyone just thinks you were putting on the big hit bro"

    Hopefully he can overcome the 'bro' connection and also seek out some tips from Jamie Lyon. And Des for that matter. I watched Whare in one tv match late last year, pretty sure he played on the right. He scored a dazzling try using footwork balance and speed, but did not impress in defence.

    He put off surgery to play in that falacy known as Intrernational Rugby League. He should have had surgery straight off the bat. He needs that neck of his sorted out for more reasons than football (and thinking longer term).

    “Steve Matai has given me heaps of advice about positioning myself in defence,” Whare said.

    Having an average day today but that line made me smile. Enjoyed your expansion of the conversation Dan and I reckon it wouldn't have been too far off the mark.
