    Manly have had over 500 first grade players. What is the most common surname amongst those players ?

    There are 3 surnames that have had 5 players each playing under that name.

    My guessing would be Fulton,Bailey and Williams
    Fulton must have 5,to bad all but one sucked ass
    Bailey has 2 useless pricks but is very common
    Williams has 2 current and probably more due to common

    Robinson would also be close as would Stewart spelling subjective

    Im sure Fulton made it to atleast 4

    Williams is one. Graham 1971, Greg 1979, Darrell 1987, Wolfman 2008 and T-Rex 2009.

    Only 3 Fultons that I remember, Bob, Scott and Brett

    Walker is a good guess, that was my original thought when I wondered about this topic. Bruce (Goldie), Andrew, Ben and an Alan back in 1952.

    Smith was an obvious guess, but only 4 of those as well, similarly only 3 Jones.

    3 x Thomson and 1 x Thompson.

    4 x Baileys

    Of the other 2 answers, one is a colour and the could be a first name as well as a surname.

    Well done UP, Kelly it is.

    Pat (1964), Peter (1965), Ken (1984), Martin-John (1996) and Bradley (2003)

    Can't say I remember any of them to be honest.
