I had good days and bad days. The club signed other players and I was concerned that I wasn't in their plans. </p>

    Manly could have dumped this guy.  Many clubs would have.  Says it all about the club no matter what others say.  I hope he has a blinder and stakes his claim to be in the side permanently.

    George just had the ability to connect with the fans when he played, I guess it is just the sight of a guy being able to play NRL with a bit of gut that gave us all a bit of hope that maybe we too could have mixed it out on the field.

    It was just great to see him out there working hard last week. After the sight of him lying there with his leg going out at a crazy angle...tough buggers play this game.

    yeah i was just thinking that how impossible does it feel to have somehting that broken be able to walk again let alone run at a competitive level.
