    This needs a thread. Well done Josh! First NRL try! Well deserved and great to see.

    I've liked Josh ever since he came to Manly, he tries his ring out and I think is fairly underrated. But is a valuable member of the Sea Eagles.....and a try scoring machine!

      Bump!

      Agreed!

      Well done Josh and eliminating yourself from the nudie run (do players actually still do that?)

      Hopefully he'll realise he should take a hit up 2 metres out some more...and score some more!

      I said after last week that it was the first time I had seen him trying to physically dominate his opponents. Last night he continued in this vein.

      It is a new, more mature and confident Starlo we are now looking at.

        Disagree - saw that in the second half of last year but it is fairly recent

        I like Starlo and I think he should be in the 17 somewhere, but I still think a marquee prop (like Tamou) is the missing ingredient moving forward. There has been lots of talk about signing a backrower, but Ethan Lowe is proving that you don't have to be the most talented player to be effective on the edge and we have Symonds, Buhrer, Brown, and Taupau. Now that Taupau is playing wider, we need a big, fast, and aggressive prop to steamroll the middle before Vave and Starling come off the bench.

            Josh has tweeted that this weekend will be his last game for Manly.

              From his insta:

              Been a great 3 years here at manly but unfortunately this weekend is my last game for the club. Thanks to everyone who has supported me and wished me well over the last few years it's been amazing. Made some great memories and friendships that will remain with me forever.
              Blake Leary replied that he'd miss him, which I worry means that he's staying.

                A few on here knock Starlo, but I think he gave his best whilst here, maybe he's not a superstar but he never stopped trying!!

                Good luck with whatever life holds for you Josh!!

                  He really played well in all the games I saw him live, mostly against souths

                  He's been a great clubman for the past few years here at Manly with plenty of community work. Unfortunately I think this had to happen, he was solid but hasn't shown enough progression. All the best for him and hopefully a change of scenery may help his career progression.

                  Every team needs a Starling. Wouldn't have an issue if he stayed.

                    Was like Vic Mauro. Could've been a bit player in a premiership team. Should've stayed at Souffs.

                      He was our starting prop through 2013 and into the GF, so definitely more than a bit player. I liked him. All the best Starlo.

                      We've got an interesting few months ahead.

                        Good player for Manly i beleive Toovs got him here when he had limited budget and filled the spot that was needed
                        With the emergence of AFB and the signing of Meehan i believe those 2 bring more to the pack
                        THANKS Josh

                          I do agree that in recent years he gave his all and that's what made me love him as a player, but I was just disappointed in him not showing that same drive this season. Sad his leaving but know with the bench forwards we will have next year in Meehan, Lane and Knight that it is the right move. See ya starlo, appreciate all the effort you've put in for us over the years :)

                            He came over in 2014 mate, but very solid nonetheless.

                            my mistake. Confused with 2014 when we tied for first in the regular season.
