"I left (Manly) becuase I didn't agree with the way Peter Sharp operated. He asked me into the boardroom at the club and said he needed my support in getting rid of players like Geoff Toovey, John Hopoate and Nik Kosef. Anyway I said, "have you told these players what you're thinking?" Peter said, "No, but I need you on my side". I said, "You can go and get stuffed!" I'm a loyal person and there was no way i was staying at the Eagles under his coaching and I joined Wests Tigers".
