    Manly Team of the Decade

    Would have to give Turbo top ranking for obvious reasons and i guess that criteria for the others can be a bit subjective then . Not doubting the Wolfman's and even Hoppa "s achievements to rep level but Robbo was never far of rep selection at various times and his consistency and endurance...

    Manly Team of the Decade

    Think that Robbo would have earned a wing spot not just on performance and consistency but also durability. , Can hardly recall him missing many games at all . Also played quite a few games competently at full back when Snake was unavailable for long stints

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    Fair enough and i guess that it all a matter of context but am sure that pomposity is a trait that neither @urulion or myself possess . Don 't have any British ancestry in any case but quite partial to the better type of British comedy

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    Cheers for that . Actually the koala population [ poor buggers ] have been doing it tough in my part of N Q for quite some decades now . Apparently quite some time ago, some lethal form of an eye skin disease wiped out huge population swathes and really depleted the numbers . Plus all of the...

    Manly Team of the Decade

    Realize that some of this is just in mainly [ light hearted ] jest but i certainly would not put quite a few of these guys mentioned here in the downgraded list . Definitely Myles , Feleti maybe Green but thought that most of the rest definitely had a good go and generally gave reasonable...

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    Thanks for your very interesting and even fascinating reply , good to get a broad perspective and insight on such a wide ranging topic . Probably just as well in the Falou matter that it was settled in that manner , as you alluded to , a complexed issue like that could have dragged on for...

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    Interesting and informative post. , Would you venture to have an opinion then how this could relate to the Falou matter in regard to R A upholding the [ or their ] affirmed ] terms and conditions of Izzy"s contract or conversely Izzzy "s claim of unfair dismissal

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    At least Izzy should or does have the opportunity to ply his trade in French Rugby or other overseas locations . Certainly a high price to pay for this N F l player for expressing his opinion and with obviously much less or very limited sporting code options . Living in the land of the free in...

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    Seems Actually on a serious note I am making available a section of bush area [ forested ] on my humble land holding to a local koala protection group to try and help their preservation . Hope that there can be more of it taking place . As for the drinking and fornicating in the same habitat ...

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    Looks like the whole Falou saga is going to be [ or now is also ] part of the culture wars syndrome and with primarily divisive and agenda driven society groups determined to try to influence the controversy to their particular way of thinking and viewpoint . Certainly is going to require...

    Player signings - Almost funny

    if the reports are accurate at least officially , Storm has the highest T P A amounts in the N R L [ around some 850 k , almost 3 times Manly "s reported figure last season . A big advantage in any sense . Also probably is going to be still many moons into the future before Manly are able...

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    Still seems a fairly significant point that this outcome was essentially an out of court settlement with no actual prevailing or contemporary legal ruling or interpretation applying . Also still does not seem in dispute that Izzy chose to not comply with the terms of his contractual conditions...

    Brayden Musgrove

    Not doubting his ability to be able to play in other positions per say , many young skillful mobile type players with a bit of size can manage back row , centre even 6 but for his and Manly "s best scenario situation , where can he be most effective and all current indications are as an edge ...

    The Folau Saga ... or Castle's Catastrophy

    No doubt the ongoing and mounting legal bills would have had a significant influence on R A position to settle on even a basic form of a palatable settlement with Izzy . Izzy still probably had the benefit of some or much of the proceeds of his Go Fund public money to prolong his legal case...

    Brayden Musgrove

    What"s the go with suggestions of young Schuster being tried as a centre ? Maybe i have missed something but i really can not recall one instance of him ever playing there , in the Manly juniors at least ., Talented kid of course and not denying his versatility but would only expect him to...

    Brayden Musgrove

    Naturally could be a range of reasons for his decision or preference to seek a release . Maybe the prospect of most likely spending the majority or all of next season with Black Town was a major consideration also . Probably was just on a minimal contract level but would still free up some...

    Any concerns about the Manly 2020 squad ?

    Probably would come with an increased price tag now which would have some limitations but a focused Hastings probably would be quite handy to have as a bench 9 or utility right now . Maybe there was a well founded reason for letting Parcell go but got the impression that he still had...

    [Resurrected] No Dogs 10 year deal for Latrell (and contract dramas)

    Easy money for much less effort then and more overseas travel if that eventuates for Latteral but would be a shame to lose a real talent [ when he is at his best ] from the N R L

    Centre of Excellence - you can help

    Wonder if small medevac [ or whatever ] type vehicle access to attend to on field injured players can be part of this proposed ground upgrades or a separate improvement or measure required ?

    2020 hooker (and Fainu disc.)

    Quite a few converted halfs of course for Manly who made the transition well , Tooves , Monas [ even Des at one stage, Shane Dudley , maybe even others . Even A P I was a converted half . . Fair enough most were high calibre players but on a positive, both Cust and Croker are still...
