There's many things players can enjoy about joining Manly today. The lifestyle - great area - beautiful beaches, ultra modern training facilities & part of the most successful NRL team in recent times. There is another massive cherry that seems to "fly under the radar" - players become better at Manly!! Recent times players like Lawrence, Bryant, Hall, Rose,Le Strange were lucky to make grade at average clubs & look like rep stars at Manly...then add Wolf, Taufua from Parra to rep stars at Manly...T Rex went from lazy to gun ...now back to lazy, but at Manly, played some powerhouse games at his peak showing that even the worst attitude could be transformed at Brookvale....plenty more could be mentioned like Matty B who was released as not good enough at Bris, to be 2nd only to Cam Smith as the games best 9. Plenty more like Kite who was good at Illawarra but Great at Manly also - this in itself should give players considering the future, who want want to forfill their potential - an easier option.
