    He can look back on a good career with Manly.
    In the playoffs every year while he was here.
    Dally M player in 2008.
    Two grand finals in succession
    One grand final win with the largest point spread in the history of the game for grand finals.  Holding opposition to nil in that game.

    I hope the next guy can do half as much while in the halfback position.

    Love him or hate him, you cannot change the facts of what happened while he was here.

    The future looks good for the Bradford Bulls with the likes of Beaver, Orford, Le Strange etc.

    Thanks Ox, I've enjoyed having you here and regretted letting you go to Melbourne during the notorious Northern Eagles saga. :)

    There was always a risk the poms would decide they were over stocked with gnomes already.

    Good luck to him. Still remember the tackled he made on lima to dislodge the ball in the great '08 final.

    Is DSM5 going to wave him off at the airport?

    All good things come to an end.  I wish the best for him in England.  Maybe our halves will need time to get right, maybe not.  My hope is that drop outs go more than forty metres, there's some attacking flair near the money end of the park, and that the guys have confidence in the team captain, unlike last season.  My greatest fear in 2010 is that my applaud count will rise.
