Manly recruit Tony Williams could fill Steve Menzies vacancy | October 10, 2008 http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/sport/nrl/story/0,26799,24472560-5006066,00.html PREMIERSHIP-winning Manly coach Des Hasler last night predicted new recruit Tony Williams could fill the sizeable vacancy left by the club's departing champion, Steve Menzies. Hasler said Williams, a winger at Parramatta, could also play centre, back-rower or come off the bench next year - similar to Menzies. Williams walked out on the Eels and could now become a sensation at Brookvale. "He has that X-factor and has so much potential," Hasler said. "Tony can off-load and will be a real impact player. I reckon he can turn a match. "He has versatility. That will benefit the side." Williams said he was ready and willing to replace new Bradford Bulls forward Menzies. "It's a good opportunity for me, to play where I want to play," Williams said. Former Norths centre Kelly Egan is favourite to become Manly's new assistant coach. The current assistant, Dennis Moore, has returned home to become director of coaching with the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles, Manly's feeder club, who will play in the Queensland Cup next season.
