    When we play Easts.....

    Wally O'Connell was denied to play for us for a season because of them.

    1972 we won our first premiership against them.

    They brought Bozo of us and a few others.


    So this year marks the 40th anniversary since the first premiership.


    I hope merchandising have a special jersey made for the ocasion when we meet considering we meet twice this coming season

    I think of the roosters as the wannabe manly. They try so hard to be successful buying players but the still only have 1 premiership
    Since 1978.

    When you think about it in 40 years we have played in 13 grand finals winning 8 of them.

    more like 1975, they have the cash, but not the winning culture.

    Or more like three premierships to Manly's eight since we entered the competition in 1947. Or their five wooden spoons to Manly's zilch in the same timeframe?

    Oh did anyone mention that we weren't a part of the competition from 2000-02? Making Manly's efforts even more impressive.
