    I agree that it's sad for the Sunny Coast, but I believe that we have played out of form players because they have a wife & kids and couldn't easily be sent to Qld to play. At least having a local NSW team it will be far more accessible and there will be no excuses for not dropping out of form players.

    Positive for me as it should allow us to have more depth with a bigger squad

    The QLD cup is a much stronger comp than the nsw cup. Looks like the club will have fork out some cash to field a team.

    They scapped it in the first place in favour of the under 20's and now they've seen their mistake and want it back. Unless the some unfer 20's players are allowed to play in the nsw cup then we'll be fielding a very ordinary team.

    The whole reason we linked with the Sunshine Coast was that Manly couldn't afford a nsw cup team, wasn't it?

    Anti-competitive.  We should be able to play a team in any comp we chose really.  What seems to be the problem with the NRL.  They seem to want to antagonize everyone.

    I will still barrack for the SCSE & drop down to see them play on occassions, but my interest just waned somewhat.

    Same Jatz - It gave us a chance to follow a team up here. I hope the club stays connected as Sunny Coast have some potential first graders in their squad.

    Makes me wish I pinched that SCSE sign when I was up there earlier this year.  Bugger.

    At the end of the day reserve grade is all about getting players ready for first grade, I'd swap a reggies premiership win for 2 points in first grade.  So if the team is successful or not really doesn't worry me too much.

    Personally, the Sunshine Coast almost seemed like a sister city to Manly Warringah, both north of a major cities, beautiful coast lines (silvertailish) in it's feel.
    I'd always clung to this strange idea of us having a regular foothold in the area...I thought our little joint venture could have been beneficial to both clubs.
    I must admit to being somewhat pissed off with the NSWRL for being so pigheaded regarding this situation but for some reason sadly not to surprised.

    Aren't the NSWRL clowns being shipped out to form the Independent Commission?  Ridiculous ....

    Agreed.  As I have stated before no point having a new commission with the same old management and operational structure in place.

    To quote Will Shakespear - ' ... a rose by any other name...'  or to put it to NRL terms an archaic system by any other name is still archaic.

    There is no way we could field a full team in NSW cup anyway, where are these fringe players coming from? Belrose, Asquith?? It's a stupid decision by the people running the game. Is it Mounties Parra that we are supposed to be merging with? If so, what if Parra have injuries and decide to pick a form player in the merged NSW cup team like Vic Mauro or Darcy Lussick. Could this potentially happen?

    The contracted manly players would be picked up by manly if there were injuries, just because its a joint venture say with parra it doesnt mean they can run freely picking our contracted players in their squad. If we go with a joint venture neither club will be benefited with an allignment of a NSW Cup team, due to the fact that 2 NRL teams will be using it, its a strange strange world, well done NSW RL you pack of absolute clowns !

    Ripped off SC, and ripped off Manly. No winners thanks to the NSW RL. Busterds.
