    How many ex-Manly players who were touted as potential great players?

    Anyone remember Jamie Olejnik over 5 years including one year at penrith, A year with the Westerns reds and 3 years at Manly for a total of 39 1st grade games. Out of the 3 years at manly he played 21 1st grade games.

    There are the likes of Aaron Groom and Luke Dorn. Just for a bit of fun who else can you think of?

    Tasesa Lavea, Paul Shaw, Ashley Alberts, ??? Lennon, Cuthbo, ...it's  a long list. Might be able to add DCE to it at the end of this year as well, but let's hope not.

    I watched a game from '93 the other night with Olejnik in it. He was getting a big wrap from the commentators with the usual "this guy will be a star" etc etc
    So too was Jack Elsegood.

    Shannon nevin can go on the list, he impressed a lot of people when he filled in for mathew ridge in the mid 90's.

    He was good, until he got picked in 1st grade, then it was obvious he was just a good reserve grader.

    No shame in that, still better than most on here.

    Like Phil Moorwood, couldnt quite handle the step up.

    You only have to Google a list of past players to see how many there are, the list would fill a page BUT that would be the same at every club I imagine
