    HE MAY have missed selection in the Blues side for this week’s Origin game at Suncorp Stadium, but Manly’s Anthony Watmough will achieve his own personal milestone on the ground on Friday.

    Well done Choc. As a club we have often been portrayed as not looking after our juniors and buying elsewhere, but I have the feeling that we are first (or close to it if someone wants to check) for having the amount of players to play 200+ first grade games for the one club. You don't get records like that unless you have quality personnel.

    Pretty sure you're right ME. By the Club's accounting (apart from the Northern Eagles thing - the League recognises Bob Batty and possibly Vautin as not having played 200 1st grade games for Manly, but just under that mark). This achievement will mean that Anthony becomes the 14th player to play 200 1st grade games for the Club.
    The others are: Bob Batty, Fred Jones, Bob Fulton, Graham Eadie, Terry Randall, Max Krilich, Alan Thompson, Paul Vautin, Des Hasler, Cliff Lyons, Geoff Toovey, Owen Cunningham and Steve Menzies. I don't think any other club comes close to that - but the David Middleton annual would confirm.

    Anthony is in some elite company.

    Terrific effort Choc. I didn't realise that there aren't many that make it to 200 games for the one club. This gives him more incentive to stick it to Stuart and the selectors for not picking him in Origin. NSW would be a far better team with him playing for them.
