Please Register to view. If we're debating whether or not he should be an immortal (based on merit) I'd say no, I don't think he's THAT good a player. If we're debating whether he should make the Kiwis team I say definitely, he's one of the best and most versatile players we have and has a tonne of experience behind him. If we're debating whether or not he deserves a statue I say absolutely. No one at our club has ever epitomized toughness more than Mannering and that's the quality we should be looking for most in our players.
