here is a bit of fun to pass away the down time, lets come up with OUR OWN BEST Manly side, each to their own and theres only a few rules ( 3).
1- the players you select in your side (17 and two reserves Include a coach) you must have seen them play.
2- The players chosen must have...
When I read the post header, it got me thinking, the game needs an overhaul and if there was one major it would be a reduce team comp.
I think the game would be best served with 14 teams , playing 2 proper rounds and the player pool will be divided up with two less clubs , so basically 60 odd "...
1- Brett Stewart
2- Will Hopoate
3- Jamie Lyon
4- Steve Matai
5- Tom Trbojevic
6- Keiran Foran
7- Daly Cherry Evans
8- Brent Kite
9- Matt Ballin
10- Martin Taupau
11- Steve Menzies (may not have been playing for Manly last decade but was still playing and will always be Manly)
Yeah, agree and its now been pointed out that the Mole has written something along those lines.
i was just reading through various posts and the thought came to mind so I thought I would share it and get some conversations started... it is the boring off season!
These are my thoughts but Des is also known for implementing new changes to how the game is played
(strategically) especially from an ATTACK minded strategy.
We all know his DEFENSIVE system and that works so he wont play around with that , but the attack I can see him looking to make a few...
Imagine what Tonga would be like if they had Frizell and David Fafita Jrn, Both Tongan heritage and both would be out of the Aussie side.
then take away Papalli and Haas to the Samoan team and International Rugby League really starts to look serious, and the Aussies would still be Number 1 but...
I think we only have to look at what we may have saved for 2020 and beyond to justify the roster we have.
Walker (pay cut) around $100 to 150K
Thompson ( pay cut) around $100 to $150K
just there its over $1.4 to $1.5 Mil
Yeah, Im 100% on the source and its a player manager, he has players in our first grade squad now and others coming through.
I dont think I should tell all on who it is as he is a client of mine and we all know there are a few journos who get their articles from the mighty Silvertails forum...
No it's not Isaac and yes we discussed this... It looks like a certain player manager may be deregistered and there will be a huge amount of players looking for new representation... So to answer your question it doesn't seem Isaac is everyone's friend as not much good was said.
Yeah, that was in the back of my mind also, I actually didn't know that he was a Sports manager, Ive been doing some work for him on his house and we caught up for dinner last night and it just became part of the conversation.
Had dinner with a player manager last night, he has a few player on our roster.
The interesting info that I can pass on is.
Ben Turbo- is a future NRL star, he believes as good as Turbo in attack and defends hard like Jake
Sione Fainu, Had 12 clubs chasing him hard, 2 of which offered him NRL...
He's a Sea Eagles supporter growing up, followed the mighty Eagles religiously with his Nan..his living his boyhood dream so money isn't the issue.. Actually no different to any of us Silvertails we would dream of pulling on the Manly Jersey and run out in FG on Brookie. And we would do it for...
