    I am shortly to put up a poll for Manly's best ever halves?

    Apart from Toovey and Hasler who else would you rate?

    Geez, can't go much past those two (and definitely can't remember past Hasler). Was Blake always a fullback?

    Crusher he was very good in the early 80's I think he scored around 27 tries in one year at halfback. Better put in John Gibbs as well CW

    Tooves by a fair margin. Give Dessie a run on the bench.

    Toovey just from hasler

    Blake (who was my first fav manly player) lost the plot in his later years at manly after an awesome 82 and 83 season

    The best 4 I've seen in my time as a supporter would be :

    Geoff Toovey
    Des Hasler
    Johnny Gibbs
    Steve Martin

    Fairly sure they all played for Australia.

    From all reports Johnny Mayes ( early 70's ) was a handy player as well.

    Gibbs went on the 1978 kangaroo tour.
    Martin also played in '78 kangaroo tour. and '80 NZ tour
    Hasler played on and off between '85 and '90
    Toovey played between '91 and '96.

    I guess Toovey would be my pick

    I remember Tooves debuting in 1988 or 89? against the touring Lions. Did he not play grade again 91?

    For me its Tooves, im to young for anyone else.
