    Thanks mate - (he's playing for The Storm tonight if anyone is interested)

    USING club legend Steve Menzies as an influential go-between, Manly are hoping to snap up promising Bradford Bulls forward Sam Burgess.

    The highly-rated Englishman has expressed a desire to play in Australia and it’s understood Sea Eagles officials are hopeful Menzies’ friendship with his 20-year-old teammate will help lure him to Brookvale.

    While Manly have confirmed the signing of Melbourne prop Matt Cross for the next two seasons, they are eager to add another quality forward to their roster.

    Glenn Hall (Bradford), Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (Roosters) and Adam Cuthbertson (Sharks) are all big men leaving the Sea Eagles at the end of the year.

    And Menzies, who confirmed last week he will play on for a second season with the Bulls in 2010, believes Burgess would be a big hit in the NRL.

    “I’m pretty close with Sam over here,” the evergreen 35-year-old said.

    “He’s a great young player.

    “He’s probably one of the most talented young forwards going around in Great Britain.

    “He does have aspirations to play in the NRL so whatever club is after him is definitely going to be a great acquisition.”

    The Sea Eagles got a first-hand look at Burgess during their World Club Challenge trip in February and were immediately impressed with his skills and workrate.

    Meanwhile, most of the Sea Eagles squad will return to training Tuesday after coach Des Hasler gave his troops three days off following Friday night’s impressive win over the Knights.

    Manly’s Origin contingent have been given an extra day off while star fullback Brett Stewart is likely to have a light field run with his teammates later in the week as he continues his recovery from a knee injury.

    Tickets for this year’s NRL Grand Final go on sale to members of all NRL clubs from tomorrow morning, with tickets released for general sale on Thursday, August 13.

    Gulavao, Dean Whare from St George Illawarra 20s and Matt Cross from Melbourne are the current signings.

    At this point L'Estrange, Cuthbertson, Waerea-Hargraves,  and Hall are for the departure lounge. Probably others - will depend what happens to our relationship with the Sunshine Coast.

    He's also just broken his leg in this match so doesn't look like he will be much use to us early next season

    Apparently Cross fractured his lower left leg in the game just now, not sure how serious but hope we can get him right for a good pre-season.

    Can't be all that bad, they didn't even have to use the medi-cab. With any luck he will be right by about Round 15, 2011.

    Thats a 6 - 8 week injury - He'll get a nice lay off / break before he's due back for training.

    They have ruled out a fracture now, looks like ligament damage "only".

    Either way he is out for the season which is good for us. Rest up for 8 weeks son, then get stuck into pre-season. Nice and fresh for round 1 2010.
