    Does that mean a period of quarantine?

    WHO ARE OUR BEST 2 OF THE PAST 50 YEARS? .. WINGERS

    He had a fair turn of speed and could score, ....if he held the ball.

    WHO ARE OUR BEST 2 OF THE PAST 50 YEARS? .. WINGERS

    Les Hanigan used to board with my Grandmother when he first came to Manly. Nice quiet young man. He had a breakout year and ended up touring UK. Next year he came back to ordinary; I remember someone at a game querying "why he was playing 1st grade?" "cause he was a Kangaroo" was the answer...

    2020 Football Club Annual Report

    My computer security tells me it is not safe to open the link. Is there a virus in there or just a financial bomb?

    He wasn't a favourite of Brookie groundkeepers as he kept slam-driving opposition wingers into the fence.

    No AFB - who is our Intimidator??

    It will take some time to get him on the field, however I think that Zac Saddler will be our next scary monster. You can tell his intention by the look in his eyes, something that maturity will have to control, so not maybe 2021, but beyond. Should get some short spells though as part of his...

    New Rules 2021

    Yes, Rugby Union have been doing it for 20 years, to the extent that no one knows the rules and can no longer be bothered with the game. I don't mind most of the changes, but there are too many for players, crowds and I suspect, even refs to understand. There will be tweaks to these changes...

    Who will be our ‘Surprise Packet’?

    Tevita Funa's year got better every game he played. He learned from his mistakes and became more comfortable with his ability, the more he tested himself. This guy will be so good by the end of the year, we won't be able to afford to keep him.

    Keith Titmuss RIP

    I have been around a lot longer than most on this forum and have seen and experienced a lot of sad things. This is wrong. A young fit man of 20 should not go like this, leaving his family and friends (including his football community) with saddened hearts and questioning tears. He will be...

    Manly Sea Eagles 1998-1999: What happened?

    The figures anecdotally quoted at the time were "several million dollars", a lot more money then than now. Other clubs loyal to the NSW league did contribute other funds but I believe the bulk of it came from Manly and not repaid, as far as I know.

    Roosters emerge as shock contenders for Joseph Suaalii

    It has been revealed that the Third Party behind the push to get Joseph Suaalii playing for the Roosters is none other than Eastern Suburbs icon, The Wayside Chapel. It is surmised that the Charity would like Joseph to lead their Long Walk Home promotion from 27 Oct until 1 Nov., whereby he...

    NRL demands answers over Melbourne Storm cheating allegations

    How about utilising the unfortunate players selected at 18 and 19th players? They often don't get a game unless someone has failed a last minute fitness test or there is an accident in training. They can be the HIA replacement players, to be used only once, whether or not the original player...

    I am a relative newbie, over the last few years. Previously however I was a contributor to the old Football Club site until it closed down. From that point I was a visitor to Silvertails, but found that it was then very much a site for those that treasured their own image rather than the...
