      I thought Gower was under-rated. He was not given enough game time at Manly. He'll be a regular in 'Matta's top 13, so good luck to him.

        Agree, not quite Manly material, but an honest toiler.

        Thanks for the memories David :angel:

        Never really big enough for first grade.

        At least when he retires he can say that he played in a grand final. He won't get that chance at Parra

        Parramatta, a place where rugby league players careers go to die, you would have to be desparate to play for them.

        Joining any ESL club would be better than joining Parramatta and being replaced by some talented youngster. At least in the English competition an average player could have a decent career.

        We won't miss him, best of luck at dozenMatta anyway, looking on the up and up there.

        Really? The guy is massive.

        Never really good enough is more accurate.

        I too thought he was big. Underutilized is right. He could poke his head through and offload, but I think Hasson showed more promise.

        He seems small in comparison to other fg props.

        Certainly no bigger than Sao and Jake T and they are much younger.
