Manson has got to be in contention, would Grimmer be in with a shout?

2nd Danny Grimshaw
3rd Barry Banks
4th Steve Lane
I may have forgot someone in the pecking order , below the last two. So please feel free to tell me.
But , Paul Mansson beats Danny , only on his kicking game, those inch perfect kicks , over the top to Richard Baker , our fast winger , when it mattered to win such important games. Both players possesed the same speed in attack, just Mansson had an extra string to his bow, and that's why he has to get my vote only as the number one.

As a young kid I seem to remember him being a points machine and possibly picking up representative honours with U24s. It may be my rose tinted glasses though.

Both Bob Gaitley and little Stevie Lane warrant a mention both great players. Lane esp scored some wonderful tries.The mysterious Kiwi Ian Cameron who played a season at the Greyhound Stadium was probably better though, an absolute class act.
Cameron was the tops, better than Mansson. Never rated Lane at all, he was just a support player whereas you need creativity at half back. King was also a support player so playing two in the same team wouldn't create anything.
than to open your mouth and prove that you are.

although he only played a few games Josh Weedon was pretty good and warrants a mention, as does Steve Langton.The unluckiest stand off of all though was Trevor Benson who was getting rave reviews in Queensland and promptly broke his hand playing his last match before setting off to play for us, i think we got 2 games out of him.....
Agree with that Steve. Weedon oozed class in every department and had he played for us longer would have been well up there.

For our older viewers we once signed a kid from Wales called Phil Morgan, now what a stand off he would have been, unfortunetly his jaw collided with HKR,s Frank Fosters forearm and that was that im afraid....( from the Parkside days )
