    First time I watched him play in our under 20s, I knew we had a special talent coming through our lower grade. I made a promise to back him then. That is, he would be forgiven for any error whilst developing and I would cheer loudest at any act of brilliance; and he has already given us plenty of memorable acts of sheer brilliance.

    His effort last night ranks with the best ever seen. Injured, in pain and restricted with any lateral movement, he took the field to give us his best. He eased his way into the game letting the sore knee and hip joints warm up. His kicking game was sublime and he kept us in the game. His defence was brave. Then, wow, pow, 10 minutes of sheer brilliance.

    His continued combination with Foran gives me sheer delight. I have always said that we have the best halves combo bar none and last night was another reminder that the QLD and AUS half back in waiting and his mate, the youthful veteran captain of NZ are far better than the incumbent NSW halves. Last night proved that we are the current premiership favourites.

    The DCE bashing over our salary cap issues has got to stop. The fourth estate can write whatever rubbish they like but I don't buy into any of their crap. Snake was loving every minute of the romp yesterday. Our veterans played only as they have ever known; the Manly culture of toughness and mateship is well and truly alive. I don't believe a word of the current rubbish published by the Daily Telegraph. There were plenty of players rushing over to the refs after one of the dirtiest of plays had taken DCE out of the game.

    The Daily Telegraph can suck on lollipops all day for I care. I predict that DCE will stick with us until he retires ... And we will enjoy the fact that he is one class above all the rest and that his mates love playing with him.

    Paper in fire too! Which is where all these newspaper reports should be.

    Good stretch, great stuff @mozgrame

    John Cougar Mellencamp is a fave of mine.

    The real small town ''boss'' although I love Springsteen too.

    Nice compliment to Saturday night footy there mate.

    Cheers.

    OT: Stating the obvious, if we can have Cherry fit come finals time, we're in this up to our (turtle) - necks!

    I think the runaways' song is better.

    They sound like the chipmunks Shoe!

    Lol......Or maybe it's those beers in my ears again.

    Good fun for karaoke though.

    Surely you guys jest showing that lame John Cougar song.

    Lita Ford and Joan Jett in The Runaways singing the only real Cherry Bomb classic.

    Re-record and pump this out at Brookie

    Can't play nrl, said a pack of tools
    My folks say 'Don't worry, they're fools'
    Headed to Manly and knocked on their door
    I'm the gun they've been waiting for.

    Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
    Hello world! I'm your wild card
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!

    Stone age plays and strange wrestles too.
    Come on, baby, let me get to you.
    Brookie nights causing visitor blues.
    Get down boys, we are too tough to lose.

    Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
    Hello world! I'm your wild card
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!

    Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
    Hello world! I'm your wild card
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!

    Hey, street boy, want some style?
    Your dead end dreams don't make you smile.
    I'll give you something to live for.
    Tough it out maroon and white until we're sore.

    Hello, daddy. Hello, mom.
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
    Hello world! I'm your wild card
    I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
    Cherry bomb!
    Cherry bomb!
    Cherry bomb!
    Cherry bomb!

    Something for the ladies on a Saturday night. At only 30% Alc/Vol, I consider it a ladies drink ;)

    Bump

    Only because I can't get the song out of my head and I think I did a half decent job slightly tweaking the lyrics. Do yourself a favour, play the Runaways clip, read my lyrics, think of DCE running out to take the field at Brookie, sip on a low carb beer and tell me you are not having a great weekend.

    DCE is the ch ch ch ch ch ch cherry bomb!

    All sounds good and enjoyable @silvertail

    Though I think low-carb beer is just another marketing ploy ; especially for middle-aged blokes trying to watch their weight......

    A bit like peeps who have Diet-Coke with their pizza or Hog's Breath Cafe feast!

    Whatever gets us through the night, I guess!

    That would be fantastic! I'm on board.

    But no way to the low carb beer.
