Season Review | Joseph Manu

Joseph Manu had another season to remember with the Tricolours in 2019 and contributed with some outstanding highlights on the right edge.

Manu finished off what wound up being the Steggles Try of the year in Round 4 and pulled off what was arguably the tackle of the year on Jarrod Croker in Round 21, proving himself to be a weapon on both ends of the field. 

He was twice voted as the Fan Man Of The Match throughout the season and impressed when stepping in for James Tedesco at fullback for the first time in his first grade career. 

The Finals saw Manu playing his best footy to date, and his new-found combination with Brett Morris was lethal in the back-end of the season.

His form saw him receive another New Zealand Kiwis call up for the end of year test matches and he leaves Roosters fans itching for more in 2020 and beyond.
