After a horror start in the top grade effected by injuries, contract talks ect - Manly were being tipped as wooden spooners - though not a good result last w/end have come back strongly enough to still be final 8 contention. Many sides would have copped out & started preparing for 2016 but not this team. The NSW Cup side in recent years has been pretty ordinary but now have tasted some great wins in 2015 & seem to want more. There is some quality players in the side & they can score points with the best of them - just need to tighten up defensively & will give any side a shake. Top 8 = 100% The young guns are a top side with talent in key positions & if Tom & Demitriou are getting plenty of the footy - can challenge for the title. Top 8 = 100% After what seemed a nightmare season - the positives are there for all to see with results improving big time in Holden Cup & NSW Cup.....plus the top grade fighting back into contention, with a few young stars already in the nest & some astute signings the future again is bright. Looking forward to supporting 2 or 3 Manly sides come finals time - great overall result under tough conditions.
