        That story gave me goose bumps. So exciting to know these guys are our future. Hopefully they are with us till they retire, they are special talent

          The gist of the article is great. Would have been nice if it was written by someone who could string a sentence together.

          Nice bit about Jake Uber....

                Cracks me up the bit about Jamie Lyon calling Jake to drive him home. The captain's apprentice.
                Good on you Jake for being such a good bloke.

                    Now now let's not be giving dad jokes a bad name!

                    On topic..

                    In all honesty I believe we are witnessing the beginning of a new era at Manly. The Turbo dynasty. I've always been loathe to give too big a wrap to young ones coming through, preferring to keep my cards a little close to my chest..

                    These kids? Best I've seen in years. Will represent Manly, NSW and Australia. And the rep duties won't be far away either methinks.

                    Impressive doesn't cut it. Neither of them "talk the talk", but I'll be damned if they don't "walk the walk" like none I've seen in years.

                    Sit back, relax, buckle in, grab a cold beer and hang on to your hats: this is gunna be AWESOME!

                      NRL.com which is obviously the official site, had an article about Jake and stated that he was 23 years old?! He is 21.

                        They'd dismiss the question, and it's an unfair expectation to put on them, but:

                        Are there two better role models in the game?

                        If Manly make the 8 & rip in we have to call another successful season.
                        Truth is, the emergence of these 2 champions has already made it a memorable 2015 imo
                        But wait...theres more...brother Ben who will make it 3 Manly Turbo bros in 5 years time representing the Seaeagles!!

                          Whilst its good to be hopeful, lets not put Too Much pressure on the Turbos. We dont want the weight of expectation drowning them ~ they still need need the space and time to develop

                            Which I guess is why Tooves has been a little more careful with their grading into the NRL. Perhaps he's learnt from the way Des managed Hoppa Jnr, to not rush them in and ensure that any permanent spot isn't to the detriment of their development.
