Just to clarify the name Manly was inflicted on us by a Pom (English) explorer who saw a group of Koori (natives) and he thought they acted in a Manly fashion. Just to give you some idea of what they thought of THAT? One of them speared him in the shoulder.
(The fights been going on ever since.)

Good luck with the hurricane guys.

My frat house had a big black guy and he played the exact same role.

Don't get me wrong, we loved him and he was my Pledge Pop, but in a fight there is nothing better than a big black man at your back. Often times fights wouldn't happen just because he came out and 'cooler heads' prevailed. A 6'6" chemistry major. Smarter than most of us, but strangers feared him and he loved to come to our aid and scare 4 guys away with a look and a step.

In college my team had a lock who was 6'11, and probably 320 pounds. Biggest man I've ever met. Nobody messed with him, or us if he was with us.

I'm sorry, but this looked staged ... like some Battle Royale in pro wrestling or on the Springer show ..

Same thing happens in every hockey fight. Any rugby team would stomp any hockey team.

Isn't this like starting a dance routine in the middle of a musical? Or... a fight at a fight?

As much contact and venom as an NBA fight.... looked like play fighting amongst school children.

That's what I thought. When did the game stop and the fight begin?

Well.... we ARE talking about rugby league, which is a very different breed of cat from rugby union (proper rugby).

Yeah, a more honest game! Honest brawls rather than sneaky eye gouging and biting in the scrums and rucks. 'Proper rugby' my eye!

Sorry, a much more entertaining and overall superior game.
