    I want us to fight on if we get another chance also K E, but without Lyon & Choc it's going to be very hard mate.

    Hey BE

    19 missed tackles by halftime. Thats pathetic.

    Dessie has to remind them of their credo last year and not looking at the opposition. How about Wolfman markining is man in defence?.

    I want to see Manly play again. Storm were brilliant tonight and Slater white hot, but that cam off a ton of possession due to Manly errors, and these were not Storm pressured errors, they were 'our heads weren't in the game' errors.

    I want Manly to play next week and to go back to that simple, patient, dire football. In the early part of the game after the first try they made good metres, but eventually were drowned out errors and the pace of Slater. Add to that brilliant coaching by Bellamy to produce error free football and tight, shallow support and attack to dumbhead Wolfmans wing.

    A better gameplan next week and clearer heads and neither factor will be a worry. They were outcoached today.

    Chin up BE - grab a bundy and enjoy super saturday!

    Choc will be fine

    If we are there next week, it will be because we have won more games this year than the teams which will bow out

    1999 week 1, Storm 36 Dragons 6, Drags made the GF
    2005 week 1, Cowboys got 50 put on them and made the GF

    As bad as we played, and injuries permitting, every chance of winning next week if we get through.  And from there ... who knows what will happen?

    A week is a long time in Rugby League.

    Who knows? We've played both rubbish and well this year. If we stay in maybe it's playing well from here on in....... (fingers crossed)

    It's  finals time you optimists.  Get real.  We don't play the Sharks next weekend, if we play at all.  I didn't see a game plan out there last night and so i  guess there is none.  Last time we played the Storm we targetted Finch, and it worked.  What happened to that strategy?

    We couldn't hold onto the ball long enough to target anyone DSM.

    realistically no we shouldn't be playing again, but the way the top 8 works we are still in with a crack if other games go our way, and like it all not that'
    s footy now days.

    Footy is a strange game,we touched up the titans  last week, got touched up by melb this week. As mentioned a weeks along time. You never know, Dessy might bite the bullet and drop orford. :D

    We can only hope that we cannot play that badly again this year and the storm cannot play that well again. 

    I wonder how much Hall's wife losing her baby actually upset the team as well.

    Probably quite a bit. Our bench was unbalanced and it would have had an impact on the players. We know we can play football and it didn't happen last night. I am sure this was one factor as the effort was there - just not the control or execution.
