    Yet gain fails to find touch and Canberra score on their next set

    Shifts momentum when the game was in the balance

    He has been going well of late .... but in all honesty it not acceptable

    The kick on the first tackle just before halftime wasn't pretty either

    Particularly as this is the 3rd or 4th one this season. (2 in one game at the beginning of the year) The superstar status aside, he is a recognised talented kicker (long and short), and that stat for this season is both unbelievable and unacceptable.

    DCE was woeful today. Error after error. wrong options, missed tackles, brain explosions. He is a shadow of the player he once was and for 1 million a year the club is being short changed. DCE MUST lift next season!!

    Can only agree with this assessment. I was pretty much going to say the same thing. Once a season is poor, but you could say 'ok everyone makes mistakes'. But this is at least the 3rd time, which is very ordinary.

    DCE has 1 glaring issue as team leader....lacks the ability to influence a game with his presence in the middle....watch Thurston/Cronk - All over the packs to lift & who needs to be where....DCE almost too nice....the quiet boy who gives the teacher an apple....personally think he has much more & if he improved this area , will go a long way toward getting to his top shelf potential.....

    It absolutely is his go. He's been making that error since he came into first grade. He tries to kick it too far and it doesn't go out. He does it many times per season.

    He's a lone ranger out there. Put a decent 5/8 next to him, and a good hooker and he'll be firing again.

    yep he farked up trying too hard for metres.

    Its not like there was any breeze out there either, the raiders were 10 times as bad sleeping on the kickoff watching it go out over the sideline.

    Would it be fair to say DCE is out of touch ?

    I really want DCE to just have a breakout game....season....era????....

    But to put it simply, he just isn't achieving value for money. Our boys slog their heart out week after week - but as the marquee player he needs to offer more than effort. He needs to lead through his actions on the field and he's doing the opposite. 2 weeks ago I saw him give up on a run chase - it shocked me. Like he didn't care.

    And making simple mistakes like not kicking the ball into touch would have the rest of the team questioning his salary worth.

    I understand Green might help his game but if he doesn't, Manly seriously needs to never again sign such a long contract with a player. Or if they do, there must be some type of performance related clause.

    This single signing, I believe, has really limited our club for a good part of the next decade.

    Ah fluffy.... I never said to get rid of him. I said it's disappointing to see your marquee player not chasing when he clearly could have. If you saw the play against Parra you would have been just as disgusted.

    Turbo gave up today cause he wasn't fast enough - fair enough. But DCE didn't even try in the play I am talking about. That was my point.

    I've done nothing but defend this guy and his signing - but you've gotta repay the faith and not kicking out into touch is just rookie. Not marquee. Rookie.

    It's easy to knock DCE because of his price tag.But......
    The amount of times he was left stranded in the 1st half without a runner is a problem that the coach should address. And I'm watching a replay and said the same during the match.
    If he was playing with better players he would be far better, not to mention his ankle and the tackling he has to do.

    So maybe if he had more runners or was playing for the storm ... he would have kicked into touch :)
