The off season recruits have been well above expectations for US this year but how must they be feeling? Brenton Lawerence unwanted by the Titans who didn't make the top 8 Justin Horro unwanted by Sticky who collected the spoon David Gower not required at the Goons who didn't make the 8 by a country mile and is now staring at a GF bench spot. Peta Hiku would have been behind Locke and tomkins at the cuzzie Bros, has now played finals football while NZ missed the 8 Jimmy Hasson escaped the sharks season from hell and shirley looking at an England jumper and maybe a GF spot Richie FA'aoso cruelled by injury and one game from back 2 back premierships while melb folded like the house of cards the club is built on Honorable mention to Chee Kam who has has a careers worth of injuries in one year. ( yes Canberra went ****e too) Those guys must be so happy to be part of the family at Manly considering that if they had stayed at their under performing clubs of last year they would have been on holidays a month ago. The more I think about it the prouder I am of this great club and the coaching/ recruitment. Manly makes you a better player!
