And we would totally get one.
Yes, Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will wear a special “Heritage” jersey for the “Remembering Bob Fulton” match against North Queensland Cowboys at Lottoland on Friday night.
The jersey – which will come emblazoned with Fulton’s name and that of fellow Manly Hall of Famers Roy Bull, Eddie Lumsden, Ken Irvine, John O’Neill, Graham Eadie, Kerry Boustead, Cliff Lyons and Steve Menzies – was originally scheduled to appear in the round 21 match against Melbourne Storm which celebrates old boys group the Golden Eagles.
Fulton’s name will appear on the back collar.
Fulton, who sadly passed away in May and was born just a month after Manly entered the NSWRL competition in February, 1946, said early this year that it was “a tremendous honour and privilege to have my name on this Heritage jersey”.
“I am sure all of the NRL Hall of Fame players from Manly who are on this jersey feel just as proud as I am to be associated with the Club’s 75th year anniversary,” Fulton said.
In a press release Sea Eagles Media said the club was planning a “special evening” to honour Fulton and his family.
Jerseys worn by players will be signed and auctioned after the match, with proceeds going to one of Fulton’s great passions, the Sea Eagles Pathways Academy.
