    We havnt bought an established rep player since 2006 and we're playing in Grand Final #4 since then.

    Look at every other club. Buy a rep player every year.

    Reason supporting Manly is Awesome #32456

    You can buy any player you want but you can never buy culture or spirit and we are blessed with both.

    At least you didn't say Chris Bailey.....

    Of the current Manly squad, Joe Gulavao, Justin Horo, Brent Kite, Tom Symonds, Richie Fa'aoso and Jamie Lyon had rep experience before they joined us.

    Matt Ballin, Glenn and Brett Stewart, Anthony Watmough, David Williams, Jamie Buhrer, Daly Cherry-Evans, Kieran Foran, Steve Matai, Jorge Taufua, George Rose and Jason King all gained their first rep honors while playing for Manly.

    Of those players, 15 have been named in the team for today's Grand Final. Only Brenton Lawrence and either David Gower or James Hassan haven't played rep footy yet (at least, nothing from City v Country or above). And from what I know, BJ was an Australian Schoolboy rep in 2002.

    I disagree. Hoppa was Parra's best player this year.

      During the game rabs mentioned that there was only one roosters junior playing tonight....and that was for manly.

      I think of comments like these when trying to ease the pain of a loss.

      Supporting a bred not bought team such as Manly whose players take pay cuts....as opposed to the rorters;

      The ultimate soulless, fly in, fly out group of mercenaries you'll ever meet.


      Happy with my choice.

      'Juniors' are a deceptive term. The Roosters have just four junior clubs to draw from. When you compare that to even us, that is a distinct disadvantage to seeing any decent number of them develop into NRL standard players.

      A better measure is how many the club developed directly through their system or debut with the club. Not sure it improves the Roosters numbers by much, but it's a fair assessment to use.
