    Rooster reptiles and performance enhancers

    This reptile smuggling saga with roosters links alludes to cordner and others having extremely high elevated levels of human growth hormone in 2013. Another nail in the coffin for that grand final. Ridiculous that they were cleared by the roosters’ doctor. Latest news Friday, Kennedy gaoled...

    RIP Damien Lovelock

    Sad to hear that avid Manly fan Damo died. He was usually on the brookie hill in his 50s big eagle jersey. A true beaches legend and great front man for the Rifles.

    Rex's 2018 end of season MW Summary

    Frankly I was flabbergasted at Manly’s woeful performances throughout a pitifully embarrassing season. For the first time in living memory no young players stepped up to fill the void left by the inept rabble that were Barrett’s men. Crucially the promise shown by many players in 2017 stalled...

    Some 1988 games

    Penrith, swinging arms, crusher, des go well. Trip by shearer. Parra destroyed I was at this incredibly tense match. An aged gartner playing for balmain.

    antique website

    Old timers may be familiar with Bryan Gaensler's original manly website. http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/~bmg/manly.html It is most likely the earliest rugby league website, from when the web was new. In recognition of this feat Bryan was made Australian of the year.

    Shocking journalism

    http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/removalist-dean-mcglinchey-charged-over-attempted-kidnap-and-assault-20170611-gwp4w9.html This is the sorry state of contemporary journalism. The journo clearly has no idea that this guy played a few reserve grade games for manly. The headline "manly star in...

    Velvets play Brookie

    In 1972 we had the Velvet Underground playing at half time apparently. Venus in furs and Sister Ray would have brought the house down. Makes the current half time entertainment look pretty pale. Good on arko for bringing in avant-garde NYC art rock.

    Myth busting - Orford announcement

    I clearly recall Matt Orford and Steve Bell being announced as having been signed, yet for some reason it is accepted silvertails' wisdom that we are still waiting for the announcement. I refer you to this link...

    The Nadir of Rugby League

    I put it to you that last night was the nadir of our game. Foran/Hayson news in the lead -up to the match. An appallingly dumb and inept performance by two teams. A Friday night blockbuster crowd of 8000. Most of whom were ugly and bigoted. The match result decided by a touch judge in the...

    KB Cup 1980

    This is of interest, despite the loss. A transitional period for Manly and a few reserves in for the midweek cup. Good Eadie footage. Many future Qld Stars playing too. Basically manly v Qld.

    Phil Blake 1989

    Forgive me for posting a souths-related link, but I came across this vid starting the great Phil Blake, perhaps our most electrifying local junior. While manly was struggling in 1989 I remember being conscious of his great try scoring feats across the harbour. A real dud decision of bozo to cut...
