Good post!I could have them all in my number 7.. Tooves is my all time favorite Manly player for his courage and competitive spirit, love the guy for what he has done for manly and for what he stands for as a Manly man pound for pound toughest in the game!!!
But my vote goes to DCE, if we are looking for a halfback that can tackle, take on the line, has a passing game, kicking game , scores trys, kicks goals, captained his state, played for Australia, Won origin series, Won premiership, has been a match winner on multiple occasions under huge pressure for the mighty Maroon and Whites, Captains our club with immense pride and has a will to just keep getting back up after all the crap that he has been put through via the media, DCE could go down as one of the best players we have ever had. keep in mind he's still playing and has a few more years ahead of him to further build on who he is to our game and our club, I can see him being the next BK to our young stars coming through for another decade of dominance.
What other player that is still currently playing would even come close to being the best for us in the last 75 years? this alone shows just how good and valuable DCE is to our team.
Yes we will get some disagree but its easy to pick flaws with a current player who is still playing the game, we don't always win and he doesn't always fire ( he is human after all) but the very same thing can and WAS said about every other player on this list.
for me I hope we have a vote on a utility bench spot for this side as I would have Tooves as that player, he covers 7,9 and 6 and his overall game and skill set would be better suited as our utility not our halfback when we have someone of DCE's skill set at hand.
just my opinion!.. I'm also so happy that we had ( have ) both these guys and the others on this list at our great club.
