    As I've watched a whole bunch of up and comers sign for other clubs this season and now with our great white hope Gillett seemingly extending with Brisbane, I wondered what on earth would be appealing for a player to come to Manly.

    I'm at a bit of a loss. The traditional reasons:

    A winning culture
    A coach who could further a career
    A fortress for a home ground
    The chance to play with X player
    A great fitness regime
    Good facilities
    A chance to be a part of an exciting young team
    The beaches lifestyle
    We're not Newcastle

    Apart from the last three, I'm at a bit of a loss.
    Come on Silvertails, cheer me up and tell me why!

        After the last 5 years of internal disruption and infighting, I guess we are on the nose again. Des took us back to the top, and the Penns have managed to demolish it in 5 years....Simples

            Our training facilities are the prettiest in the League - and not far from the beach.
