Vodafone Warriors head coach Andrew McFadden paid a special tribute to Simon Mannering when he talked to the media today.

"I've come across players who can give everything but I haven't met one like Simon who can do it under a fair amount of duress," he said as the club prepared to honour Mannering when he makes his 250th NRL appearance this Saturday.
