    Must say Great win tonight by the boys. But if Wolfie was quick the nail would of been in the coffin alot earlier. Blair's a big lad but lacks speed also, and Horhay is a power runner.

    Not sure if they are the slowest, but one is the worst.

    No names.

    Yeah we are not a fast team but we have not had the fastest wingers for years now and we have been very successful.

    I think Lyon and matai are faster than the wingers.

    The Snake used to be super quick and score from anywhere. Speed is an asset that can win games.

    I agree

    Seriously, do we need to find fault with everything?
    Did they get stood up , outpaced, outplayed? If they did who gives a flying #$%@ anyway right now.
    FFS we're 3 from 4 with the loss in extra time.
    No Snake, King, Horhay, Gift - I 'spose all the doomsdayers will come and say see we don't need Glenn afterall.

    Really, just bask in the glow of being a Manly supporter for a few days at least or question yourself if you really are!

    Agree stuboot it's less than 10 minutes after full time and were ripping into a backup winger. Jorge is quick and Wolfman is coming off a leg injury.
    No Snake,Gift, King and Taufua that is 3 players that have played SOO and one for the future. Gutsy win

    I think Blair should get the spot ahead of the Wolfman when George T returns.

    Absolutely agree! The criticism is a lil' harsh. At least give those blokes credit for WINNING the game!

    Yes,we have concerns in certain areas, but every team does.

    Some ppl need to remind themselves what the term SUPPORTER actually means.

    Were our wingers in 08 and 11 the fastest in the comp?

    That's what I thought....

    Who cares?! After a gutsy win like that one, surely find something to be happy about.

    I thought Blair had a good game tonight. He really went looking for work which is what he'll have to do to hold his spot with Jorge and Snake coming back and a probable backline reshuffle.

    I love Wolfman and his ticker to come back from injury, time and time again. But I'm not saying anything most people don't know when I say he is one of the worst readers of a play in defence in the comp. For someone who should be so composed because he's playing outside the games absolute best defensive centre, he is so erratic and makes calls way too early.

    I have nightmares about our wingers being in a footrace to chase down an opposition winger. Bring back Scott Donald and Hicksy! Fast as lightning!

    Wingers are wingers they must re-sign Peta Hiku he is a great player would make a fantastic centre for the next 10 years go Manly.
