    Played for Moore Park and Balmain Police Boys until I found out I wasn't that good. But I'm a damn good coach from this side of the monitor. Followed Manly since I was 5. Have been invited into Fulton's place and have gotten to know Marty Gurr, Max Krilich and Ray Branighan previously. Have a lot of video of Manly and bit from President's Cup & SG Ball form the early 90's. Any Silvertails played in the games with either Scott & Brett Fulton, I may have something for you.

      I understand the 2 acls and early retirement, but I don’t get why you didn’t instead simply sign a four year $2m deal with the eels?

        Your other alternative @The better Robbo would have been to get acl transplants from Michael.

            Yeah for some reason he never got injured at Manly and I had every injury known to man.. did you know after he retired from NRL and Super league he played 1 game of 1st grade local in Canberra with my younger bro and broke his leg. Luck of the draw I guess.

              I was a late convert to supporting the Mighty Eagles after having been a Bears supporter for 20 odd years.

              I couldn't get into the joint venture so was lost in the wilderness for a few years with no team to support then moved to the beaches in 2004.

              Started seeing Manly players out & about, including at my kids' school (Tooves & Choc) & realised I had a local team to support again as long as I could overcome the age-old Bears vs Sea Eagles rivalry within me. Also thought it would be good for the kids to have a local team to support so jumped wholeheartedly onboard.

              Have no connections to any players or the club but did play a couple of seasons of futsal against Gene Ngamu a few years ago & always say g'day to Tooves when I see him out & about despite him always looking like he just wants to be left alone lol.

                Oh, also played 11 a side soccer against Cliffy about 10 years ago. I was playing for Narrabeen, he was in goals for Beacon Hill & we could not get anything past him, he was a great keeper.

                The only goal we scored against them in 3 matches that season was from a penalty kick & our striker apologised to Cliffy after because he felt bad about ruining his clean sheet haha.

                  Is there nothing the great man couldn’t do. Did he have a cig in his mouth while in goals?

                    My last days of my footy career were with the Belrose eagles. We just missed the semi,s in my last year but we continued to meet up with some other guys a couple of times a week and play at Grahams Reserve, where I did my knee, so that was it for my League career lol. I played a lot of Touch footy in my later years when I moved up to Penrith, But my heart will always belong to the Northern Beaches where I grew up in my early years. Manly4life, always have been, always will be, through thick and thin and the good times and bad times.

                      Great to have a bunch of ex-players here.

                      I played breakaway in the under 7's for the Collaroy Plateau Magpies union team for 2 years then moved to league for the Kingfishers to play under 7's one more time. I think it must have been the inaugural year for Cromer league then as my dad was a Manly rep and he wouldn't have had me playing union if there was a local league team. Not absolutely sure.

                      Started at 5/8 and moved to the 2nd row after about 5 years. Made the SG Ball squad at 16, but never got a game. Too slow! Probably not good enough either.
                      Shone for 10 years due to love of the contest and work-rate. Top tackler every year but tall, skinny and not fast enough was not good enough.
                      Played with Glenn Ryan and The Bug and met a lot of our Golden Era players.

                      Loved every minute of it and am Manly for life!

                        Liam Knights old man was open with who he was and was a great contributor on here for some time. It was rather disappointing that a little more respect and appreciation wasn't shown to him by a small minority on here.

                          Pretty good at most sports, master of none. Too interested in the beach and hanging out with friends to take team sports too seriously ... work and lifestyle also made it very difficult to commit to team sport. A few good mates and acquaintances associated with the club.
