    Manly swoop on Broncos young gun Delroy Berryman

    BRISBANE Broncos prodigy Delroy Berryman has been snatched by the Manly Sea Eagles.

    A star for the Redcliffe Dolphins in the Intrust Super Cup, Berryman will head to Manly in November after signing a two-year deal with the Sydney club at the weekend.

    Berryman, 22, a winger with exceptional pace, was signed by the Broncos on a second-tier deal after an outstanding 2012 with the Dolphins.

    He played in two of the club's pre-season trials, but failed to impress enough to secure a place in their NRL team, with Josh Hoffman and Lachlan Maranta ahead of him.

    Berryman's manager, former Maroons Origin fullback Clinton Schifcofske, said Manly gave his client an opportunity the Broncos could not match.

    "The Broncos were great during the negotiations, but Manly have given Delroy a real opportunity to crack the NRL," he said.

    "It goes to show how strong the Intrust Super Cup competition is that Sydney clubs are prepared to back players from here."

    Berryman has a significant chance in making his NRL debut at Manly, with winger David Williams tipped to be moving clubs.

      He has some serious speed. Hopefully he will be a great pickup.

        I hope not. ASADA will be all over this if true.

        Serves the Bronco's right this is what happens when you don't pay the Berryman.

        He is obviously ok if he has made it this far with a name like Delroy. What are some of these parents thinking when they name them !!

        Brett, David, Steve, Glenn, Jason, Anthony, Matt, Keiren, Tom etc, all good quality strong footy names. Daly is just passing muster but Delroy, good luck to him

        Nice pick up. Young Delroy looks like a youngster with a lot of gas and a natural finisher with a knack for try scoring.

        The Broncos rejected Matty and Chez, so Delroy should be a winner for our Recruiters as well :)

        Zero speculation on Wolf around brookie at present. He's here to stay, and in great form.

        Every club needs a Delroy, KE. Anyways, all names allowed after Fui Fui, Feleti, Lopini, Ziggy, Bronson, Aposai and Inosai... shall I go on?

        When a fella called Darius played Origin, league started to lose its toughness. The island names are a different kettle of fish ;)

        Look at the immortals, Reg, John, Robert, Graeme, Arthur, Wally, Clive and Andrew, all good solid male names :p

        Never liked Andrew. Hard to come up with a reason not to keep Wolfie. Going great at the moment.
