Will be great if Ben Turbo can find a spot in the starting 17 in the next few seasons with Tom and Jake . Has there ever been Three brothers playing at the same time for a Manly i st grade side ? I don "t think so .
I don't know that there has ever been 3 brothers playing for the club at the same time - let alone first grade. The 4 Walker brothers, Bruce, Andrew, Ben and Dylan never crossed paths.

I donโ€™t know or recall 3 Brothers ever playing first grade for Manly but of course 3 Hughes and Mortimer brothers all played in same team for the dogs. When you think about it that was pretty amazing

Did the four of them ever play in the same game??
Burgess Quartet Make Debut
But arguably their biggest moment came in Round 25 of the 2013 season, when all four took the field at the same time in the Red and Green, becoming the first quartet of brothers to play a match for the same Club since the Norman brothers โ€“ Ray, Roy, Rex and Bernard played for Annandale in 1910.

I still remember it from the 2013 Qualifying final. The commentators would not stop going on about it and showing close ups of how proud Julie was. Then we shat all over their parade :)

Pffft, match payments only!

lol

Hope Tom gets a few full seasons under his 'money' belt now.

If official, then yay, and also yay that the scumbag media can't keep making up rumours about them for a few years. Though they do it with dce so anything is possible (besides responsible reporting).


- the butt hurt from other team's fans in the comment section is like manna from heaven.

Do you reckon there is any friendly brotherly banter as to who signs the bigger contract ?? You'd think fullback money is better than lock money so I'm guessing Tommy will have bragging rights. Hopefully they've both built a little discount in there to help us retain little brother Ben
I've heard Tom in an interview say "as long as I get more than Jake, I'm happy!" - so probably.

OMG: To the surprise of no one @HappilyManly beat me to it!

lol @:D:eek::clap::cool:

I was trying to find the video, I think it was from an SOO Camp interview on the MattyJohns Show where Turbo said 'so long as my contract is $1 more than his...' :giggle:

Not being a wet blanket but all reports say 'expected to sign in the next few days'. No official quotes etc. 1 November is tomorrow and I am sure they will get some interesting offers thrown their way. I believe they will stay however why leave it so late? Manu from Roosters is unsigned and in teh blink of an eye resigns with the Roosters - just like that.
I wonder if it's possibly a tactic to see what players clubs chasing the Turbros are willing to cut loose to throw everything at enticing them away from us?

Could be a way of undercutting several clubs chasing the Turbros while we sign one (or more) of the players they're prepared to let go, safe in the knowledge that we already have Jake & Tom under lock & key.

Have a Rooster supporting mate wanting to know how we can afford the brothers, DCE and still sign some decent player without cheating the cap.

I just laughed and said your kidding, aren't you. Their fans are really deluded.
How are Manly going to do this with 3 players taking 1/3rd of the salary cap?

I was not aware Scott Penn played golf ;)
