    I wondered about this after stumbling on the fact that Syd Fischer OBE, famous as one of Australia's foremost yachtsmen in Admiral's Cup, Sydney to Hobart and America's Cup Competition, was a Manly junior who played for us in 1949 & 1952.


    (Like a few others this topic could be considered trivia but there isn't much happening at the moment! )

    Toovey is one of the most brilliant accountants this country has ever produced. We will never have a salary cap issue with Tooves in charge.

    Yes good one! He was outstanding in Eastwest 101. I understand he's been doing a remake of 'Killer Elite' with the likes of De Niro, Clive Owen and Jason Statham recently.

    Yeah, I was also a Sanitation Engineer in those days, worked for the same mob. Went surfing during the day, pub when the sun went down, started work at midnight and got some sleep on the way out to the tip. ( It worked for a while).
