    Another desperation tackle down the sideline on a back. Did the same thing a few months ago I think against Soufs. What a champion...nuff said!

      Really starting to show the praise that he had in the lower grades was well warranted. Glad Manly snared him

            Did the same last week when they brought on their young gun, Lolahea? Picked our Starlo but he reached out with his big mit and reeled him in. Reminds me if a young Matt Scott.

              Starling was also the player who got the great offload away to Jamie Lyon who was then able to kick for Hiku to score.

                Josh Starling. Another no-name player who we signed who has turned out to be a very good player for the Sea Eagles.

                While other clubs are falling over themselves trying to sign star players in a bid to buy a premiership, we keep getting these no-names and turning them into stars. Starling, Horo, BJ.

                But Manly is always accused of being the one trying to buy a premiership. Some people can't get over the 1970's.

                    I wrote him off. Of coarse that means he'll play for Australia and represent his state.

                    Lol

                      Starling is staring :angel:

                      Crocker was on some NRL News show and he said that Starlo just absolutely loves it at Manly. He has really taken to the lifestyle and can't believe how welcome the Senior Players made him and other newbies feel. :)

                        That kinda dispels the claims of oversized egos (at Manly) too, doesn't it.

                        Josh is just going from strength-to-strength, and in fact reminds me of another no frills, no fuss, quality 1st grader... Matty Ballin!

                        If he can continue in this vein, and end up with a similar career, we're onto another champion folks.

                          Which was that Wunderkind Hunt :huh:

                          Didn't see anything brilliant from him, apart from our Players continuing their slips catch practice.

                          Hunt was forever trying to grubber into our in goal :huh:

                          Copley being run down by our prop Starlo, was payback for Jorge being run down by Tagatese :)

                          He needs to be upgraded from a plodder. Cover defending props are all heart

                            I'm a big fan. He gets stuck in and does a lot of those 1 percenters. Very underrated.

                              Manly has the quickest starling props!


                              But we'd have to be pretty close.

                                Starling was great against Brisbane. Bent the line at will. Really improving

                                  I've mentioned it a few times this season already, but he is yet to go missing in defence this year, which I find really impressive from a relatively young and very inexperienced first grade prop. Outstanding the way he puts his body into his work, and must have wonderful fitness, and/or concentration to keep turning up the way he does in the middle.
