Update: 5:50PM HE is the king of the kids, the king of the competition and, come late this afternoon, he hopes to be wearing a premiership crown.
Maroochydore fullback Lasaro Manamoli, the 2013 player of the year, could be the decisive factor in today's grand final against Noosa as the Swans chase their first premiership since 2005.
The Fijian, 26, is in career-best form and has the potential to inflict severe damage with his running game, general-play kicking and goal-kicking.
But while his on-field exploits write the headlines, it is his off-field magnanimity that makes him such a good clubman.
Delivering for 80-odd minutes each Saturday is not enough for Manamoli (pictured) - he also gives back by helping develop the Swans' junior talent.
Maroochydore coach Simon Lewis said the No.15 was the type of player a club could build a strong culture around.
"He's just relaxed in that sort of Fijian way," Lewis said.
"He's a lovely young man. He spends time before our training helping out with the little ones' training, like under-10, and they love him. He's got a very gentle spirit. I think that is a good way to describe him."
Strong and elusive were, Lewis said, two other ways to describe him.
The powerfully built back moved to the Coast from Fiji in 2010 with his Fijian-born wife, Ann, an Australian citizen.
A native of Nukubalavu, in Savusavu, he returned to Maroochydore this season after an unhappy season with the Stingrays in 2012.
He missed Maroochydore's commanding preliminary final win over reigning premier Caboolture last Saturday because of an ankle injury.
While the ankle is not 100%, he says he will play today. That means former Premier Rugby standout Elliott Hagen, a fill-in at fullback for Manamoli against Caboolture, will return to the wing against the Dolphins and Alex Le Bris drops to the bench.
Manamoli said: "This year has been a really, really good year for me.
"I think it's just come through our club - the way they've treated me they're always there for me."
