    TONY WILLIAMS has crashed into countless defensive lines as the ''T-Rex factor'' for Manly during their grand final campaign, but the dents he has made are nothing compared with the hole expected in the coffers of the NRL club that signs him.

      I hope we can resign him for next year, he's an incredible talent.

      I hope he gives some consideration to us sticking with him when he wasn't exactly living up to all this potential.

      This. It kinda ****s me to TEARS that a club can spend so much time and effort working to realize the potential of a player.... Only to have them sniped by a cashed up club as said player finally hits their straps... Grrrrr...

      The Dirty Dogs will probably throw a mill at him, only to see him go back to his **** form.

      Can't get out of the habit of T-Rex whinging?

      Get over it.

      He filled in positions he wasn't bought for, and wasn't suited for, for the good of the team. He was the best option Des had in those positions. He didn't cause the long term injuries to Snake and Wolfman that put Manly in a hole.

      Plus anyone with any knowledge of the game realise big players often only bloom later. Compare Petro's progression with T-Rex's and you'll see remarkable similarities.

      Some supporters stayed true, others repeatedly knifed him in the back. Wonder which ones he considers when choosing whether to re-sign?
