    Hi All,

    Last time i can remember us being this busted with a game to play was the 1991 semi against Canberra

    From memory Cliffy Lyons kept us in the match (and the Canberra forward scored 3 or 4 tries??)

    Shame is we do not have Cliffy this time

    I remember Graham Lowe in tears in an interview aftere the game. The tears were because he was so proud of their effort. That could be the case this weekend, we may lose, but our effort will make us proud.

    I don't expect too much as long as the boys put in, can't ask for much more than that

    mark coyne scored four,the winner from a long range chargedown i think.i think we were missing oconnor and toovey and one other star.

    kevin iro had a blinder as did the legend cliffy.oh for cliffy in the 2011 team.

    I remember that game. NO ONE gave Manly a hope before kick off.

    But it was yet another inspiring Manly effort that came to an abrupt end under Bill Harrigan.

    We were getting on top when Kevin Iro (I think) was pinged for passing the ball after Harrigan called held on him all too quickly.

    Then Jughead Jones was knocked out in a desperate tackle on our own line, but was pinged by Harrigan for not getting off the tackled player!!! He was unconcious!!!

    Harrigan then let them take a quick tap while CLiffy was spewing to him about the penalty and Coyne (I think) just dived over for a try.

    Was an early tackle in that game that Toovey was knocked out and couldn't play on.

    The difference between 1991 and 2010 is there is no one comparable to Cliffy. Maybe Killer perhaps?

    and they had 3 or 4 out.not 10.

    someone did rip geoffs eyes out.ridge had a blinder and kicked a lot of goals.we had such luminaries as franky stokes and danny russell running around that day.oj was sensationa that day.

    one of my favourite games.occonnor was definitely out,maybe tony iro as well(no loss).paul shaw wasnt on the bench so we struggled with tooves in trouble.

    nasty exit though.the bears flogged us the week before which wasnt nice.

    Win, lose or draw, this scenario certainly has the capacity to build character in our side (something which has been sorely lacking at times this season in my opinion).

    Who knows - The young players who deliver us the premiership in 2011 might look back on this game and say that was what put the fire in the belly...

    I think Des was out as well (knee injury like snoz)

    I remember Brett White playing?

    I tried to find the highlights and found this gem....

    If they put in and restrict the score to less than 20 margin I will be massively impressed with Manly

    Chris White - whenever he came off the bench you knew that a knock-on / missed tackle etc was imminent. If the internet was around in 91, there'd be whole threads devoted to him. I could never understand why bozo/lowe kept bringing him on

    Well done Isz. I've been thinking about that game this morning and was going to look up some info on it. I remember watching it in a packed Harbord Diggers auditorium. One of the clubs gutsiest efforts and we were still in it right up until that dodgy quick tap try near the end. OJ's best game for the club I reckon and Cliffy was the maestro. It was good old Ricky Stuart that ripped Toove's eye out very early on.

    Final Score
    Canberra 34 beat Manly 26

    We still had some handy players but look at the difference in the packs!

    That was the proudest I've ever felt after a loss. Do the club and it's supporters proud on Sunday boys.
