In all likelihood this weekend represents Tezza's last game in the NRL and for Manly. He has certainly had a chequered career playing for Wests, Easts, Manly, Souths and Wests Tigers (Norths weren't round for the other point of the compass!) and certainly served NSW and Australia well. He will be well remembered as a Premiership winner in the marvellous Manly sides of the mid 90s, especially for his verbal antics. Always controversial he was sent off several times in the 90s, was involved in transfer drama, had issues with coaches (Sharp, Langmack, Lamb) at several clubs and was never far away from a newspaper headline. What endeared him to many was that larrikan touch that he provided to many a club, plus his fierce determination and will to win. Some were very against his playing for Manly this year and the jury is divided as to his contribution. He has certainly lost his pace and elusiveness but his fierce determination and will to win are evident to all. The amount of game time this year has also been a moot point. His signing was seen as a desperation ploy by some, a stop-gap measure by others and an important step in the development of the club by those who count. I wonder how his career will finish and how we will remember Tezza!!!
