    These two set up our win today with a fantastic first 20 minutes and being strong thereafter. I get the feeling that these two really enjoy playing together and they were one hell of a starting combination today.

    Jake also proved today that he should be getting no less than 50 minutes of time per game. Herculean performance and he gets my 3 points.

    All our forwards, with the exception of Hasson, were great. And to think we have BJ, Jesse and Horo in reserves to cover for injuries.

    Did you miss Starling???

    158 metres from the bench.

    Outstanding.

    I think Hasson was ok. One brain explosion, true. However it really didn't matter.

    MASON went hard, give him another contract. Jake Turbo also needs one of those 8 year contratcs me thinks

    I think Starling has arguably the greatest leg drive in tackles of all of our props.

    I'm dumbfounded that the club would be looking to move him on, especially given his age.

    Jake trbojevic has carried our forward pack all year. If we win its on the back of his performance.

    3rd time in the last 4 weeks since getting back to fitness after injury.

    He is 25 and coming up to 50 first grade games so should be hitting his peak. Looks a good man to have around to assist Myles and Jake as our 2 top line props. Starling, BJ & Lussick to fill out the pack/injury cover.

    In reply to the OP

    Completely agree that Jake and Willie seem to have clicked as a pair. Both really seem to enjoy each others company.

    27 runs and 274 meters with 26 tackles, according to the league live app. Between him and his brother they ran for almost 700 meters today, and scored 5 tries.

    Jake was the best player on the field bar none. What a fantastic effort

    The young bull and the old bull stood at the top of the hill, gazing down at the herd of prime Hereford cows grazing in the fields... The young bull, well he's pretty excited and starts snorting and firing up and looks at the old bull and bellows "let's run down there and f*ck some of those cows old fella"!!...

    The old bull?? Well he just lowers his horns, smiles to himself and says "young fella, let's WALK down there and f*ck em ALL"!!

    I don't know why but this just seemed appropriate to this thread :D

    I loved when a Warrior knocked a ball on into Willie's hands, and he just lobbed it over everyone's heads - a giant Willie :)

    Also a big thank you to Jake for scoring a try and Manly winning 13+ - my $1 became $71 :clap:

    For even thinking of putting that bet on, you deserve some serious creative credit. What a bet!

    I always back Manly 13+ and Jake was just itching for a try.
    Next week I'll tip Starlo / Willie to score :)
    Worth $1 to dream @:)

    Think it a bit sad Willie has been shown the door... always thought he would go even better as intended.... off the bench
