    Who was the Manly Junior who played in the 1970 winning President Cup side and then played played a key role in 1972 by replacing gun new Centre Ray Branighan when he was injured for three months during the early part of the season? He played a fair bit of first grade through his career but struggled to find a regular place ahead of Fulton, Branighan, Ken Irvine and Max Brown.

    Spot on Larry. Flip - I do pray to move from here! Believe it or not but 270 acres of green to the North of Parra is not a bad place to live. It's not downtown Parra or west of there which is a different matter altogether!

    My kids were born there! Nothing wrong with Hornsby - Sydney's North Shore starts there and we have lived in the North West. Great suburbs around Beecroft, Cheltenham, Epping and Pennant Hills!

    Hornsby is a fair bit north of parra.

    I was born there as well, and grew up in the area.

    and it is actually a rather good hospital, better run than RNS and RPA. (mums a nurse that has worked at both) Probably because its a bit smaller.

    My eldest daughter was born at Hornsby in 87! (Note year!) She came to watch me play in my last grand final of footy (in a baby capsule!) Nurses were very cute.

    I was unhappy with the timing of the birth as I ended up missing going to Brookie for the Cronulla game where we smacked them and Shearer and O'Connor cut them to pieces out wide courtesy of Sir Cliffy Lyons.
