    Good to have another couple of points in the bag, 1st half, outstanding, 2nd half, average

    That 1st half really excited me, King, Kite and Galuvao set a fantastic platform for the 1st 20mins then our backline showed off a lot of skill moving the ball from side to side. Impressive considering Brett isn't around and Lyon isn't doing a lot at the moment

    Hopoate, wow, what a game. We have 2 future superstars in our side in Foran and Hopoate. Just so hard to tackle and always has some leg drive, and for the 1st time showed a bit of extra skill with the ball tonight

    Foran matures every week, a very sound match from him again tonight. DCE was a bit quieter but continues to show good touches

    Up front, Galuvao, outstanding once again, just eats up metre after metre and has great footwork at the line. King, again really, really aggressive at the start and Kite was much improved as well, thought he had a good game. Put Rose in that category too, added a lot when he came on, Mauro was solid as well.
    Glenn was all over them with his skill and had a great game. Watmough was far, far quieter than I thought he would be. Buhrer continues to really impress

    Robbo and Oldfield were both solid. Lyon quiet again but didnt put a foot wrong, Matai had a great game, he always does against the Warriors

    For all the criticism of the recruitment and retention of Des and Crusher, every week they seem to be vinidicated a bit more with the way this young brigade is performing

    We have a pretty good run for the next few weeks. Just need to keep building and winning every two from three. Our depth is awesum this year.
    GO MANLY

    Des was relaxed from the outset of the season.

    Don't under estimate the task in front of us next week, Penrith at Penrith has never been easy for a Manly side

    I know Kiwi Ive had some terrible nights at Panther stadium, Preston Campbell killed us a few times, but I think Penriff ane worse this year then for a long time.

    A win next week would set the season up nicely. By my calcs we would then need to win 9 or 10 out of our remaining 17 to make the top 4.

    Yup another win would just be great. Like you say it means the road ahead is a lot easier. The log jam starts to clear from about now so the top 5 or 6 teams usually wind up in the final top 8.

    Manly are certainly looking like they will make a decent account of themselves. I am confident going into games which is day and night above last year

    I'm loving watching us play this year. Reminds me of 07 and 08 and even 95, 96 and 97

    At the moment (about 60 mins) when that peanut Laurie Daley said manly's effort was very professional tonight the whole game changed into a mistakeathon from both sides. it's definitely a work in progress but it's good to see the positives keep coming. Like KE says, Hopoate excellent. There can't be any question of him not being a regular starter now.

    Fantastic game and completely dominant in tough playing conditions. 5th tackle finishes near their line weren't perfect and that is reflected in the score. Very, very happy with that performance from almost everyone and a solid win. Plenty more of those to come.
