    Noticed the other day that Chris McQueen's dad is a Manly diehard (obviously not when Souths are playing us) and an offer was on the table for Chris to join us in 2008.

    McQueen goes under the radar because his surname isn't Burgess, but he is better than any of the brothers.

    We made a play for Sam initially, when he was playing alongside Menzies.

    Also, I believe Gallen came quite close to signing with us.

    Wally and Gene actually signed but got out due to a clause


    Know when Lowey was coach apart from signing Ridge (who oddly signed because he felt he wouldn't be a full All Black - the other bloke signed with a European club) we also signed some bloke named ZinZan Brooke

    The Wynn brothers. Arko could have signed them to a package deal before one headed off to Parra and the other to Saints.

    We also signed up Billy Moore from Norths in the early nineties, only for him to have a change of heart and Graeme Lowe said he wouldn't hold him to it, no big loss
