    Man, what a bloody heroic victory. Pretty much half a man on the bench after Williamson got knocked out, on the wrong end of a 7-1 penalty count, some ordinary general play calls from the ref and the touchie and, to sum it all up, it was against Parra!

    I thought LeStrange was brilliant tonight, give him the starting hooker spot to shove a rocket up Ballin's ass as he seems to have been a bit careless lately (been giving away a stupid penalty each game). Hope Menzies and Bani aren't out for long though.

    Can't remember being so happy after a Manly win in recent times. We really, really deserved it tonight.

    Never in doubt that one, all week. Parra played like their normal lazy/error prone/retarded game and the ref did everything to give them a leg up. Very good win when you live with two Parra supporters.

    Great watching it in a pub in the city & I am the only Manly supporter in the place.  Four tries to 2 says a lot about the game, to overcome the injuries, penalty count etc is a great effort.

    We could be in trouble next week, no Choc, Beaver, Bryant, willo, Bani

    I made a late decision to come over for the heritage round, and **** it was worth it
    Bloody sensational at the ground, the effort was enormous and it was a proud day to leave the ground as a manly supporter

    Went into Peter Wynns this morning in Manly gear, and he came past and said "Thats the wrong jersey for in here" :lol:

    Never in doubt, even at that point, probably the most confident I've been about a Manly game in 10 years at least.

    Was great at the ground. Manly fans there were fabulous and we shut the Parra slimes up for most of the game. All they have is that canned chant.

    With a poor (NRL, footytips, oztips etc.) tipping round last weekend for me, I however do have something to be stoked about:

    Sure, it would be heaps better with a couple of extra 0's at the end of those figures, but a Sea Eagles win over the Eels at Parramatta stadium is always real, real shweeeet!
