Here is an interesting picture. One of the footings of the merchandise shed at the southeastern end of Grottoland:

An accident waiting to happen. Sort it out Sea Eagles.

That's disgraceful. I mean, who drinks VB..????

Being in the construction industry this is not uncommon for temporary site sheds or containers, although this is quite extreme for a temporary structure that is accessible by the public.

Not much risk unless some kids crawl under it.

on second thoughts that is quite likely with the amount of kids that wander around at the game.

I see no issue, those bricks have been there for probably 25 to 30 years and they have stood the test of time - look at the pyramids, well placed rocks are there for a long time not a short time

Agree not that uncommon with temporary buildings and providing the ground base is fairly stable but a bit of concern with a bit of a slope and elevation with some of the supports in this instance . Certainly would not want any excessive ground movement there but most local councils are quite strict so guess that this is in the acceptable category

That was my first thought when I saw splitting timber on an angle. - That could probably hold out for as long as the pyramids!

Ok kids.... off you go and start building your play fort! (oh...and leave the vb...lol)

Here is an article from the Big League 1975.View attachment 16764View attachment 16765
Interesting interview . Hard and tough and proven competitor at all levels and was a key in those first lot of Manly titles . Not too sure about the suggestion that being a close knit unit played a bit part in that impressive run of South 's titles back in the late sixties , early seventies , more like that they were choc a block with internationals . Also not too sure about any suggestion of disharmony in the Manly camp just before he left , especially at that professional level , do not have to be and not expected to be best mates with all of your team personal , just expected to put in every match and play as a team . Really no different now or any time

Could it be a junior Daniel Ala - see posts #1543 and #1549 here - both have similar strapping on same knee?!
Looks a good size and training with the top squad. Not named as a development player but appears to be featuring heavily. Interesting.

Sounds like he was not popular with the boys, and possibly punted.

I know from my dad that the manly team of that era were staunch mates and got on the piss regularly together. I guess lurch wasn’t invited.

edit: yep, the young blokes in 75 Eadie, gartner, Randall, krilich, Thompson etc weren’t hanging out with the oldies like O’Neill. Freddy though was hanging out with the young blokes still.

So, just three development players which I think we already have.
Does that mean we have only one spot remaining in the top 30?
Could we simply promote, say, Tenterfield to the top 30 and add one further development player?

It says a minimum of three development players ... which I read as you can have more ... but they won't be funded by the NRL grant ... ???
