    Heath L’Estrange will not be returning to the Bulls after the club released their joint captain from the final year of his contract on compassionate grounds.

    The Australian hooker’s wife, Jessica, gave birth to the couple’s first child recently and the couple are keen to raise their young daughter, Grace, back home.

    It is not yet clear whether L’Estrange will find a new club in the NRL but the 28-year-old, a hugely popular figure with supporters, has certainly played his last game for the Bulls.

    L’Estrange began his career with the Sydney Roosters and went on to join Manly, whom he helped to Grand Final glory over Melbourne in 2008.

    He joined the Bulls ahead of the 2010 campaign and established himself as one of the best hookers in Super League.

    Not sure where he would fit in with our current rotation. Wouldn't suprise me if the Cowboys try and get him.

    I never forget those shows-and-goes he did at Brookie in the QF against St Merge for the Wolfman to score in the corner.

    I think Hodges will fill the role of ballin's deputy now, Heath WAS great for us no doubt but we are trying to build a new generation now and bringing back players in their late twenties probably don't meet the strategy

      His pass to Kitey for the 5th try in 2008 is indelible in my heart:angel:

      But Heath's time has gone, Manly needs to build for the next 5 years+

        Wouldn't be surprised if he ended up at Cowboys because he was very close to Glenn Hall. But I'd love him back at Manly if possible.

        After I heard the news I was thinking how healthy could the Manly local comp be:
        Chad Randall back in Aus,
        Mark Bryant back in Aus,
        Beaver back in Aus
        and 52 of the Hoppa clan (unsure if that's actually how many Hoppa's there are)

        You guys are kidding if you think Willow has any say in how that team is run. He would have next to zero influence on recruitment and structure.

        I must be missing something. I read this no-news thread out of boredom. I can't find any mention of Willow in here.

          Ian Roberts is returning to Oz after 7 years in the US.

          Now that man could tackle and offload - would love to see him back in some capacity teaching the forwards how to hit like Skivi :angel:
