Date of Birth: 28/8/1986
NRL Debut: 2005
Previous Clubs: Wellington
Honours: Junior Kiwis 2004
Bio: Simon Mannering was the only player to debut for the Warriors in season 2005 and he did not disappoint.
The tall and powerfully built centre showed plenty of promise in a handful of opportunities and will push hard to win a starting spot in 2006.
A product of Nelson, Mannering played for Wellington in the Bartercard Cup before making the move north to link up with the Warriors.
2006 Outlook: Will push hard to partner Clinton Toopi in the centres. He will battle it out with Tony Martin and Jerome Ropati for the spot on the Warriors right side attack.
