Rhys Armstrong released by Manly



  • Came through the grades with Brooks & Moses. Looked great in his short appearances for NYC in 2014. Apparently Manly threw big money at him and got him for 2 years. Missed all of 2015 through injury and has now been released. Admit I didnt see him in NSW cup this year but could be worth a look.



  • A clever player and played five eighth when the TIgers won the SGBALl. It would be nice to bring him home (would have been nice to have Brown back as well).

  • There were big wraps on him at the time, but obviously not now. So many players with “next big thing” just don’t really do anything, won’t even bother starting a list of names, we can all think of 10.



  • 180cm. Too small, if we are talking second rowers. We need some size. I’d be looking at Abraham Papalii. Roosters have second rowers coming out of their backsides, so might be a while before he get a crack at the top level

    we already have players like this in our club, can’t compare skill just build.



  • is now with the tigers on a trial and train basis. hopefully he can impress and start to realise the potential he showed in the juniors.



  • Nice to know. Thanks FF.

    Good luck Lad. Fire up!
