    NOW HAND PICK YOUR 2nd Squad .. is it better than the firsts ?

    Higgs was starting in the early stages in Manly i st grade and doing O K but then aggravated a back injury which pretty much stuffed his ongoing Manly stay as well as his career . Eels obviously were aware of his injury problem , Manly simply took a punt that it would come good but...

    NOW HAND PICK YOUR 2nd Squad .. is it better than the firsts ?

    like the back line but would put Gartner [ Frogs eyes was simply electric ] just ahead of Matai and Innes . Cleal and Lowe i n the 2 nd row , Kosef at lock but hard to omit B K and Fatty ] , Mal Cochrane at 9 , Spud at prop. Bench Phil Blake , Bruce Walker , Boyd and Harvey [...

    Josh Aloiai

    Fortunately there is some depth in the front row stocks so if there is some delay in his [ Alioia ] recovery ,should be no big deal . Think that there is going to be a fair bit of consideration whether Paseka should start with Marty in any case even if Josh is ready to go at season start...

    NOW HAND PICK YOUR 2nd Squad .. is it better than the firsts ?

    You are right ,, could realistically pick another 5 teams and still have pretty strong line ups . Just thought of even more outside backs that i did not include previously [ and some were utility types as well ] Close , Daryl Williams . John Mac Donald , Sigzworth ,Matt Burke Danny Moore ...

    “He’s definitely the best coach I’ve ever had.

    Certainly have a lot more aptitude then me getting that type of accurate detail . Actually ironically [ or maybe not ] Reynolds probably played his best footy under Des

    Hooker for 2021

    think that it is only reasonable for Croker to be given plenty of encouragement as things now are but still a bit of a wing and a prayer expectation that Cust and Croker will be able to get the job done for a good part of the season . And of course , unless the club has a bit more insight then...

    SILVERTAILS TEAM .. NOW ..PICK YOUR COACH

    Buscuits went on to coach the Balmain Tigers for a couple of seasons after his Manly commitments , maybe Ron Willey as well and do recall Willey at the Panthers in 1988 . Ron must have had a very long i st grade coaching career , in charge of Manly sides in the early 70 's and still again...

    NOW HAND PICK YOUR 2nd Squad .. is it better than the firsts ?

    Fatty was a top player , was certainly noted for his very reliable and solid defence but had a good turn of speed and more then a capable attacking forward as well Came to Manly in 1979 and left at the end of 1989 i think , so an 11 year career there and again with an impressive record

    NOW HAND PICK YOUR 2nd Squad .. is it better than the firsts ?

    Could pick four Manly sides from that time line and still not much between them . Just look at some of the alternative Full backs - Snake , Shearer , Ridge , Turbo and Branighan , Wingers - Ribot , Robbo , Mooney, Wolfman , Elesgood and Hopoate [ John and Will ] centres O Conner ...

    SILVERTAILS TEAM .. NOW ..PICK YOUR COACH

    Ron certainly deserves a tribute being the i st Manly coach to crack a premiership and easy to underestimate his contribution . That was in the era of just one main coach having almost full responsibility and not the assistant coach arrangement in most recent eras . Still would opt for Des...

    2020 - 2021 Big change in pace !

    Still have to show that they would be up to consistent i st grade standard but has to be a real benefit bringing in these type of outside backs and especially wingers who do have genuine speed though would not be surprised again for Tippytoes to be groomed more as a centre over time ...

    Dylan Walker

    Let "s just see what happens or transpires with his approaching legal matter , of course not the best record with some of his behavioral issues but he is not a thug and if he can hopefully return playing [ or is available to play ] for next season , surely realizes that any more poor conduct...

    SILVERTAILS TEAM .. NOW ..PICK YOUR COACH

    Bit concerned about some of last season's coaching and post 2011 G F outcomes but think that i will have to go with Des Hasler on this one . Patiently and methodically built a i st grade team up to premiership level after he first had the coaching reins and with the difficult N th Eagles...

    SILVERTAILS' TEAM ... NOW PICK YOUR #14 ..

    I looked at this particular position in the contest of for instance a best perceived last 50 years Manly side opposed to best 50 year Roosters or Saints sides or Dogs or Eels and they would have pretty competitive line ups as well . Then who may be the best bench utility to make the most...

    Hooker for 2021

    Guess that i am one of those that always or generally rated Monas well and recall quite clearly that he was regarded as a good buy and acquisition when he was lured away from the Raiders . Also thought again that he was a quite consistent and well performed half [ and top kicking game ] for...
