    He sounds like a good kid. I still think his nickname could end up as "pinky" though as in, little finger.

    But stilla  good kid and I thought he had a solid debut and did not look out of place at all

    His old man was a ratbag on the field, but there's been worse than him going round that are revered these days. Noone could question his courage and you'd like to have him in your side when things were tough.  He would always be ready to take the ball up the middle when you really needed some yards. I thought he was executed by the media more than anything else at the end; he deserved a lengthy spell but the nrl clearly wanted to rub him out for good.

    I loved watching Hoppa Snr play. I'm sure Pinky(great nickname Dan) is a future Manly captain as well keeping us entertained for years.

    There was a loud roar from the faithfull at the post match function at the leagues club last weekend as well. In fact the cheering was second only to Matai's reception.

    Pinky is good as it leads to calls such as "sink the pink" and "show us your pink bits"

    We have all been waiting for a replacement to Beaver and all the double entendres that went with that.  .

    If he lives up to expectations then one day a headline will scream, 'William the Conqueror'. Bit long for a nickname though. Conky?  ;D
