  1. Jamie NEVER played for PARRA Reps he came to Manly as a 17-18yr old and played NYC
    He played for his school Patrician Brothers Blacktown then he played for Hills District Bulls-
    which is a Parramatta District junior.
    So to answer the question.. to come home would be the Bulls- but as a NRL and junior representative player would be Manly.

  2. Was it Jamie Buhrer that was eye gouged by DCE in in a manly – newcastle game in 2018 ? It was a Dog act that was quickly buried due to Jamie not reporting.
    Manlys been robbing the Parra/Penriff nursery since 1947.
    I reckon the Turbo boys will NOT reach their full potential at manly and need to move to a decent club and benefit from the professionalism they don’t have access to atm.

  3. the warriors should sign slade griffen , he made it into the kiwis before that horrible injury tbh , dont know how he is going with recovery he hasn’t been mentioned all year , he might just retire , then again going after another injury prone hooker probably isnt the best idea , but when he was fit he was a machine

  4. Kenny-Dowall- more errors and missed tackles than any other winger, good riddance
    Slade Griffin- very good player when fit but unfortunately his knees are cactus and he will probably retire
    Jamie Buhrer – a solid bench player or reserve grader but not up to NRL standards anymore
    Ross Dog – always tried hard but physically stuffed now
    Zac Woolford – reserve grader at best ,no big loss
    Aiden Guerra- was Knights best forward 2018 but injuries finished him earlier than expected

    Now we need a 5/8 ,a good winger and another centre and we SHOULD improve next year
