    I saw this article in the DT today, and just had to post it. Guys you are legends, fantastic work!

    SEA EAGLES WILL UNITE TO HELP OUT BRAVE LITTLE ROKI

    THE walls might feel like they’re crumbling around Fortress Brookvale with star halves Kieran Foran and Daly Cherry-Evans departing at the end of the season, but it’s important to put things in perspective.

    A host of Sea Eagles past and present will converge on The Collaroy Hotel next Monday, where Manly are hosting a fundraiser for 17-month-old Roki Mills. Roki suffered a severe lack of oxygen during birth, leading to brain damage and was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy aged five weeks.

    Through a radical form of stem cell therapy available in India, Roki’s parents have been told he may one day be able to crawl and then, possibly, walk. It costs $40,000 per treatment.

    Manly icons Steve “Beaver” Menzies, Matt Ballin, Cliff Lyons, Max Krilich, Johnny Gibbs and David Williams will all be on hand to help try to raise enough money to fund Roki’s next treatment.

    The Collaroy’s general manager Paddy Flower told us: “One of the prizes includes watching the
    2008 grand final with Beaver Menzies and half a dozen players from the
    side who beat Melbourne 40-0, at The Collaroy.”

    Nice to see a positive story involving the guys. Awesome work for them to be involved in this.

    Funny, they put Mark Bryant front and centre in the photo but not even a single mention of him in the article.
