They need 2 more years to become stars.Interesting though from that year -2015 - they only had one player make the NYC Team of the Year and he was on the bench, Brent Naden.
Kikau played for the Cowboys and Pangai Jnr was a Raider and Addo-Carr was a Shark.
Tom effectively carried us in 2015.
Also got to remember our 2017 NYC side came 8th so effectively had a good month to win it.
We didn't have any make the team of the year.
5 of the GF squad have gone onto play 1st Grade but none are what you'd call superstars.
Agree, I forgot to add yet... but many expect the bulk of a premiership winning u20's squad to kick on into 1st grade immediately. Some of these guys never ever see 1st grade and others like Turbo can step straight in.They need 2 more years to become stars.
I am pretty sure Paseka was at Western Suburbs SG ball in 2015? He arrived 2017.Not defending the Roosters here but delving through the archives quite a few players changed clubs in NYC.
Did you know that Paseka played for us in 15 but the Tigers in 16? Either did I.
I'm sure the Sharks can lay claim to Ramien as coming through their system even though he played 2 1/2 seasons for us. Six months later he debuts in 1st grade.
I've still got my fingers crossed that we will have Garner back next year.Might be worth pointing out that from our 2015 Holden Cup GF side we only have Tom left.
I think it was a missed opportunity especially when we didn't keep Jesse Ramien, Luke Garner, Nicho Hynes and others.
But hopefully the core of our 2017 winning squad will be with us (and stay on the park) for a while.
Would luv Liam Knight back. Good motor, good mouth and a bit of attitudePatience is a virtue.
I've still got my fingers crossed that we will have Garner back next year.
Doesn't hurt to consider that Liam Knight was back training with all the Manly boys between Raiders and bunnies contracts.
In this day and age Comradery is unfortunately lost on some in this game these days.
Paseka will fill the hole left by AFB and make it his own.I reckon the way Paseka improved in 2020 was 1 of few bright sparks for Manly's season.
Actually started to realise his own size and power as it went on and even in some hefty losses, made some great charges with the ball and an area that has been swept a little was his defence, bashed a few in the middle and missed few tackles....
