Tipping Comp 2021
I think it's July. Covid has played havoc with court timetables so hopefully no more delays. 'Justice delayed is justice denied', or so we've heard.
Thought it was early July, an August trial doesn't leave Manase much game time if proved innocent. A couple of warm up games in reserves, then hopefully onto the bench in 1st G for the semis. Surely Penn as a bit of sway in high places, need to get an earlier trial date, this is getting to be like the Brett Stewart case on steroids.So his trial is August 2022 sometime ??
Or is that just a smokescreen and in reality it could well be anytime , even up to 2023 /24??
How is Manase going ?By the time he is fit and available .. he will be no walk up start to replace Croker ... another 20 games at hooker and the frog will make that position his.
Last I heard, the opp was a success, and is training with the team but not full contact as yet.How is Manase going ?
Has he recovered from his operation ?
Is he well enough to resume fitness and contact training ?
IMO if he is in full training with the boys and getting fit and strong,
A place on the bench with short stints building up to longer ones could be the go .
We do need more from our current number nine and more competition from quality players will improve the quality of our team
Thank you for the update @Eagle 1Last I heard, the opp was a success, and is training with the team but not full contact as yet.
This guy is all class, you can't teach this. Des knows what he is capable of, why would the club be going through all this drama if he wasn't.Thank you for the update @Eagle 1
What I find most inspirational about Manase is his resilience and never say dies effort in never giving in to the incredible pressure, misfortunes and adversity he is facing and he is not giving up but giving it his all to get back on the field
Talk about strong character at the highest level !
Manase is one of my favourite Manly players for many , many reasons !
We have a high quality hooker in our development squad and it wont be long before he stamps his high quality class in our teamEvery squad needs two quality hookers and a couple other players that can fill in if necessary. Faniu and Croker are two different styles of hookers which would work very nicely in combination. Our squad would be well served with both Croker and Fainu fit and available.
You acquire young talented players with great ability, potential and skill and nurture themMakes me wonder….. how do you develop a high quality hooker?
