Where will the boys play penrith in the first round of the finals?
NRL Finals makeup needs to be settled prior to NYC scheduling
I'm predicting Pepper Stadium or ANZ. 99% chance it won't be at Brookvale.
We flogged the Sharks 6-52 today!!!
Go Manly!!! Let's do some damage! 3 or 4 wins to go!
Pretty sure that the games will be played prior to the first grade at the 4 venues.
We should know by lunchtime
I went to to the NRL home page and clicked on holden cup news and all they have there is 2014 news how pathetic is that
But i have found this
Qualifying Final: Friday, September 11, 7.55pm, Allianz Stadium
NRL: (1) Sydney Roosters v (4) Melbourne Storm
Holden Cup: (6) Sydney Roosters v (7) NZ Warriors, 5.15pm
Qualifying Final: Saturday, September 12, 7.55pm, Suncorp Stadium
NRL: (2) Brisbane Broncos v (3) North Qld Cowboys
Holden Cup: (2) Nth Qld Cowboys v (3) Brisbane Broncos, 5.15pm
Manly should be at ANZ as either the Rabbids or the Dogs will get a home semi
That says it all !!!
The NYC side will play the Panthers at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 3.10pm prior to the Bulldogs v Dragons game #GoManly
Live on Foxtel, so get to your local Club
I will be watching it Live in My Manly Mancave
Is our NSW Cup Side out now after Saturday
Now I know the game is on Foxtel many of you will just sit and watch it at your homes or the local club but the boys need our support.
I will be heading out on Saturday to support the boys at ANZ and I hope a few more manly supporters join me.
I just had a look and noticed that our NYC team finished 4th.
Thought it was a real eye opener that the best attacking team in the competition (the Rooters) scored 591 points. The best attacking team in the Holden Cup.....(Nth Qld) scored 923 ! Clearly defence is not a priority. Highlights the chasm between the competitions.
In fact, the top 9 NYC teams have better attack than the Rorters. Well statistically anyway.......
That's why I love watching the NYC play. No structure, just raw talent and lots of tries
Hope the kiddies go all the way and I will get to use my GF ticket

The scoreline indicated a huge thumping but it wasn’t the point scoring ability that impressed Manly Warringah Holden Cup Coach David Heath last Sunday.
Having secured fourth place and playing a lowly placed opposition, the Sea Eagles crushed Cronulla Sharks 52-6 at Remondis Stadium. It was such a dominant performance the Sharks only scored their points in the final minute.
“I was pleased with our mental application. We spoke about it a few weeks ago about taking each game as it is and that’s how we are doing it this week,’’ Heath said, ahead of Saturday’s first qualifying final against Penrith Panthers at ANZ Stadium.
“We are treating it as it is our only semi-final chance and that’s what we want. We are not thinking there is a second chance. It means you go in with a red hot go attitude.”
The winner will earn a week off and advance to the preliminary final. The loser will face a sudden-death clash the following weekend.
The Sea Eagles face much stiffer opposition in the Panthers – a team they lost both games too in the regular season.
The Panthers claimed the minor premiership following a shock loss by the North Queensland Cowboys, who finished second with Brisbane in third place.
“Both of us are in form. Penrith have been super consistent. It is the same with the Cowboys and the Broncos, they have been the most consistent teams. But the 20s is not always about that, the most consistent,’’ Heath explained.
“Penrith are a very physical team who rely on their go forward from their big men, in particular props Oliver Clark and Moses Leota.
“They have a good young half (in) Nathan Cleary, full-back Brent Naden, and their lock forward Tyrone May, who is very skilful too with the ball, so they have a couple of attacking weapons.
“They play tough, they want to get at you, and their aggressive in defence.
“You are not minor premiers if you are not good on both sides. There are certain areas we want to target and we need to make sure we do them well.”
Kick-off is 3.10pm and the game will be shown live on Fox Sports. The match will be played prior to the Bulldogs-Dragons NRL clash.
