    We should play Orford off the bench, as he only can be bothered trying for 20 minutes.

    All the Monas, Burns knockers - as least they try the whole whole game. Orford doesn't talk, he doesn't try.

    Why the hell is it when Manly pays big bucks for half backs they suck.

    Something needs to be done.

    I was never for the drop him to PL option but after today it has entered my mind as a viable alternative

    Do this...


    Have a look at Manly's halves combination for the last 4 years... I'm sure you'll find we had more points in us and a better winning percentage with Monaghan/Burns as our halves then any other combination.

    Can I be annoying and ask how many games these combinations have played this year?

    I already stated it.. that I think we have a better FOR when monas/burns are our halves and a better winning percentage than any other combo we have had in recent years.

    Yeah, the problem with that, and the stats I provide is that they aren't quite comparible.

    What I mean is you can look at Moanghan as say he has won 4 from 5 games this year in the halves and then look at orford and say he only won 7 from 11.

    The problem arrises from Moanghan not having the same number of games and therefore reducing his chances of failure.

    The same goes for points f/a with combos.

    You can't compare a havles combo from 4 games to that of any other combo more than that many game accurately.
