    A friend sent me this info, not sure if someone has already posted it and not sure of the source but I am open to be corrected but hope I don't need to be

    1987 - Bennett's last year at the raiders - Manly win the premiership
    2008 - Bennett's last year at the broncos - Manly win the premiership
    2011 - Bennett's last year at the dragons - Manly win the premiership
    2014 - Bennett's last year at the knights -

    Fingers crossed

      I wasn't aware of this unique statistic...

      History repeating (Manly win the comp) is enough for me...lol.

      But everything and anything that supports that outcome is fine by me!

      Thanks @MissKate

        Not gonna lie, this information has got me so excited I've started saving up for the Grand Final ticket and memorabilia. I love stats like these. Thanks for sharing.

          I always knew there was something I liked about Wayne Bennett......(no seriously, while I admire his record, I'm not a fan).
