oh crap half our squad is already missing in action
Does make you think though...how many really physical players have we had in recent years? Probably only Watmough, Matty Ballin and BJ Lawrence that clearly do a lot of extra work in the gym. Certainly won't hurt the team spirit to have a guy doing 300kg deadlifts in the same gym as the rest of the squad!
Didn't really help the tigers.. they probably thought that Marty could do all the work for them on the field!
True, that. Look at Souffs though, or the Roosters, and they all look more pumped up than Manly have in recent years.
Aggression, size, intimidation
Forget the backs
They will come into there own on the back of this pack
Throw in Parcell - the buy of the year & its a serious team with a coach who has little respect from most....but plenty from the most important ppl ...the players.
Agreed! Its almost criminal how well placed we are for front rowers all of a sudden!
Just need Chuck Norris in the team. In fact, just have him on the field on his own. We'd still win.
We can talk about this forever. The names of players count for something but so does heart.
Over the years there is evidence of how "heart and soul" have won the day over superior names eg the first year Fatty coached QLD, some of the NZ sides over us etc.
The side has been drastically changed and who knows how they will gel. The support staff (10, 20 ?) have been removed less then graciously.
I would be shocked if this team fired at the start of the year.
You don't remove Matt Ballin, Donny Singe, Tooves, and all the back room staff and expect things to be ok. They might have forgotten but the big factor is that they are real people and not just names on paper.
Separate names with a comma.
