Hoppa is gone and I believe that there was no alternative. Whilst his career was controversial there were some great moments and I am sure that a good list could be produced in memory of this infamous Manly man. I remember the three tries he scored in Canberra in a top of a table clash. He ran the length of the field for one and carried us when we had 11 on the field for 10 mins. Manly won against the odds and Hoppa was sensational.
