Rugby league legend Ray Blacklock loses brave health battle aged 65


"My debut was against the Roosters and Arthur welcomed me to first grade with the best stiff arm I ever got," he said.
"I was seeing stars everywhere. The ref called Arthur over and I'm pretty sure he was about to send him off. But I bounced to my feet and ran to the ref and said to him, 'Please don't send him off - he's my hero!'

Sad news, I have great memories of a game vs Newtown at Brookvale when I was about 10. I was mesmorised by how good both Blacklock and Ferguson were on the wings - they both glided along and beat quite a few tackles, very exciting. Manly still won the game but those 2 were great to watch.

The curtain must fall on all of us but it is sad when people die young and tragically

Lets think of happy Manly moments like theses when our great Sea eagle speedsters were burning up the grounds and dominating the Premierships
