    watching the 2007 prelim final and watching one of his finds Michael Bani and it reminded me of some of the talent he brought to manly. Not all of them were superstars but I guess that’s the nature of that role you win some and you lose some.

    I have to say I’m a little excited to see what young talent we see at manly over the next 3-4 seasons with crusher back heading up the recruitment.

    How good would a couple of outside backs and ball playing back rowers be.

      With the amount of players we have off contract, Crusher will have reams of cap space and rosters spots available next season.

        There's good reason why the Crusher will always be a success in the recruiting....
        Some of the best Natural footy players are from the bush and the Crush has spotters on every corner....
        I am 100% that over the next 1-5 years we will have some absolute quality and a mass advantage in plucking the very best country talent on offer.
        Good thread btw Cambo, exciting times ahead with our best signings for 2019 - The coaches and staff...welcome back Crusher !!

              Wade Graham a potential Ben Kennedy in my humble opinion.

              I think he’d have a profound impact on the young brigade.

                            Who did he unearth for us?
                            ok, Jamie Lyon* from his Parra service... then?

                            * and he was an established star at that point

                            Great team ! Who needs the Crusher when we have Ryan .
                            Landing Jimmy the Jet at Brookvale oval would be a speedy recovery for our back line .

                            Problem for cleal these days is the power of the internet and the ability of recruitment managers to browse players from any area at any time.

                            Gone are the days when a gem could be found that no-one else has seen. All the best players are snapped up so young now. They all have an Insta account with an online presence.

                              What do some see in the Jet ? Well if you blink feathered friend you wont see a bloody thing
                              Check the the video on the 46 second mark .
                              That is 46 seconds from disaster for the Melbourne Storm .
                              The jet blasts off from inside his 30 and he has Addo Carr and the rest of the storm players giving chase to no avail .
                              Now Addo Carr is known to run down players but the Jet is no ordinary player . The Jet is a flyer .
                              Have speed and you will fly like a Sea eagle . Sea eagles were meant to fly !

                                The NSW selectors love him. Picked him, and we win a series. Says a lot. Better than Ferguson and Dugan.

                                  To be fair, he was NSW worst by a mile. He does have some toe though.

                                      I really want to see him active now... there are critical weaknesses to cover. Yes, it will take time to build to top 4, but we do not yet have a top 8 roster.
