I keep hearing this poppycock that Moanas has done so much for the club. Nonsense - the place is being turned around off the back of blokes like Kite and Kennedy et al. What has Manly done for Moanaghan? Remember when we signed him all the bleating from Daddy about how he didn't want to leave Canberra and how he'd been stiffed? And now we're hearing the same crap 18 months later? The Monaghan must have Public Service careers in spin doctoring! The reality is we took a punt on a bloke who was 23 and couldn't hold down a position in the top grade. We gave him confidence in his abilities, surrounded him with half back experts legends like Hasler and toovey and invested in him. We gave him an opportunity at captaincy where most clubs wouldn't and we gave him oodles of time to establish himself where Canberra hadn't. Then we offered him $240k per season for three years and that wasn't on a par with what he could get in England apparently? So much for loyalty. Where would Monaghan be without Manly? Probably with Cooma in the Monaro Cup.
