    What is the most number of players Manly has ever supplied to a representative game?

    What and when was the game?

    Who were the Manly players?

    We had 6 in 96 play PNG, with beaver and sedaris injured.

    in 97 6 played in the game against the rest of the world - innes in the world team.

    But 95 was our year.

    we had 7 play in the aus vs NZ match.

    spud, cement, tooves, hill, beaver, toover and ridge.

    in the world cup that year there were a total of 11 players selected, 8 for Aus, 1 for NZ and 2 for Tonga.

    What about the State of Origin game in 96 when the Super League war was going on- I'm sure we dominated the squads.

    All wrong.

    Please note I said representative match, which is more than Tests.

    I wonder if it had something to do with City v Country in the SuperLeague war time. Virtually the whole Manly squad would have played.

    Indeed. I was looking at the team line up and didnt even notice him at Centre.......

    So Sigsworth makes 9 and to think that surely one of Kerry Boustead or Choppy Close would have been a better winger for Qld than Steve Stacey !

    Was Boustead injured that year ? He didnt play in any of the 3 origins in 1983 despite playing 2 in 1982 and 3 in 1984 ???

    You blokes amaze me. To think that Manly won a record number of games that year - were clearly the better team for the whole season but lost to Parra in the GF. It's a crying shame!

    That one as well. I was there and we were all over them for a while! A forward pass from Dymock - a try - they got their heads up and we were never in the game after that.

    One of the most miserable days of my life. I still have the Winfield Red hat from that GF and some photos of the pre-game activities. Few of the game though!

    I don't blame him as much as the fact that we dropped a lot of ball and didn't finish them off when we had our chances. Our injuries that day weren't great either. I felt like the only Manly supporter at the SFS that day - there were so many Newcastle supporters!

    I went to the SF prior to that and Manly smashed em. No different to the other tear though I suppose.

    Between Biscuits and Bob you're there.

    Sigsworth played but Gerard didn't. Total representation 8. I bet we still won the following weekend with half the team backing up too.

    Are you sure Gerard didn't play ?

    He is listed in the team at these websites:-

    BTW You were right. We backed up to beat the Illawarra Steelers 34 - 6 at Brookvale on 12 June 1983.
