    I have mixed emotions about it all. I am sad that after this year Beaver won't be running around for Manly but at the same time i am pleased as i am moving to the UK at the end of the year and i will be able to see him off in his final ever football match late next year!!!!!!!!!

    Nice tribute piece, Matabele (like your signature quote too).

    Stillman, I'm already living over in glorious Pomland. will have to change my allegiances from Warrington to Bradford (and get a bit more interested in the SL which is only on sky anyway).

    Just remembering beaver slide through those openings cliffy could winkle out of a defensive line, turning up at the exact moment, will be my lasting memory of him as a player (eg. twice in a semi v. cronulla in 95...)
