    Thats what I see in him & I think he will get his chance in the centres at the Roosters in the not too distant future.

    He reminds me a lot of Ryan Cross and Kane Linnett....all 3 just happen to be rugby union juniors, intelligent, solid outside backs - if he stays fit he'll make it somewhere.

    I remember prior to Ricko’s debut their was a full page article in the DT of him and his father both playing for the Eastern Suburbs Roosters,great article and picture of both of them..
    He went on to become a true legend of the Club!

    Watched Billy on the weekend and he was super impressive! 3 tries and looks to have the goods.

    Manu has played a lot of wing. On his day, yes he is a very good centre.
    Where do we play Smith, Manu, Bmoz, Hall and ikuvalu?

    Lats kicks goals

    on other matter, if you don’t like Brian’s hearcut they wax your nostrils. Who’s had that done? Scary

    Only being able to resign either Lats or Manu will be an interesting situation when both are out of contract. I don’t know who I would prefer to keep. Probably leaning towards Lats.

    Yep, I think playing guys out of position so far this year hasnt really worked for us.

I believe we recently resigned him too - wouldnt think he would be on too much $ at this stage
    I agree. We wont keep Manu.
