Mundine had a bit of flash, like a touch footy player, but like Sterlo said (to his face) on the Footy Show when he switched over to boxing (in response to Mundine's claims that he was a better 5/8th than Fittler and Daley) - week in, week out, Mundine simply wasn't consistent enough at the position to force Daley and Fittler out of the SOO and Test sides.

The blown try vs Melbourne in the '99 GF is testament to what Mundine was all about on the footy field.
Will have to politely disagree and change topics.

Who is Manly going to drop when the full strength side is back...God I hope it isnt young Hoppa. The fend on Jnr Sau represents just the beginning of this young mans career
