For all the doomsayers. Look at how quick Newcastle came off their line & got in our faces last night. Look at most Manly losses. Listen to a Brookvale home crowd boo & jeer their way through every home game. Do you see something? Every team is allowed to be offside against us. Even at our most dominant, maybe one guy rushes out of the line & the rest are back where a 10m defence would normally be. When we're in form, the gaps are plugged but our defence is NEVER up as quickly as the teams we play against. We just aren't given the same leniancy. We played against an enthusiastic team who controlled the ball. If we don't do the same, we can't win, our defence is too handicapped. That's the way it is & maybe that's why the team don't bother busting their arses in games that are beneath us. Maybe they're saving their energy for the big games, knowing that if we win them, that's enough for a premiership. I guess we'll find out on Saturday & then the following Monday.
