    Over at LU there is constant banter about Manly will be bottom half of the 8, miss the 8, even run 2nd last because we wont be able to cope with the loss of Monas for next season, there is a great post from Jatz as I have cut n pasted below
    I reckon this is spot on , let the other teams and supporters believe this, let us be the sleeper and get under the radar again LOL

    We won't miss Monnas at all and in fact will be a better team for his loss as Ballin will shine this year.

    However we will be ****ed if either Lyon or Orford are injured during the year as we have no backup in the halves.

    Props like King, Willo and Bryant don't impress as they are plodders and lack impact.  Manly need a couple of smokeys amongst the younger players to step up and put these guys in PL. 

    It is a make or break year for Halfasanga who really needs to step step up this year and show that he if FG material.  Also hopefully the SBW look alike to provide impact off the bench later in the year.

    Melbourne showed up on reserve players as being pretty ordinary last week so we cannot afford any long term injuries to the first 17 (except Willo, King and Bryant).

    I watched about 30 minutes of Monaghan today on Fox, every pass he threw either went above or behind the receiver and stifled the entire backline. The commentaters seem to rave on about him.

    Hicks on the other hand looked to be in great form.

    I'm very much looking forward to Ballin, he will change the dynamic of the side I think, would love to see a proper 5/8 in there too though.
