    MANLY management and the club's coaching staff are having to decide whether to put financial reward ahead of player welfare. Dean Ritchie fires up with another negative Manly story.

    I'd say the form of 2009 had more to do with the season launch than the WCC.

    Interesting debate. In 2009 we were run down a lot of times by opposition teams, having started well in many games. It was put down to innovative fitness training (abandoned the next year) though the WCC could have been an issue, along with the 2009 brouhaha.

    In the WCC we took a lot of young players over and played a B team in the first game, so it is hard to quantify the assertions.

    Is the travelling the big issue for the players or is it the conditions itself?Maybe 2 hard games before season launch is to much? It would bring in some much needed funds for the club, but player injury must also be a concern. I would like to see it happen. Maybe rest some of the bigger names against St.Helens especially the boys on the kangaroo tour.

    Incorrect, that was 2010. 2009 was when we lost the first 4 games in a row after losing Brett to a suspension. By Round 6 he had injured his knee. He was back by year end for us to lose to Melbourne in Melbourne in the first week of the finals.

    2010 we started off playing Tigers and Parramatta, got to good leads, then lost them. Parra was the infamous Gridiron pass that "wasn't forward" and the Tigers game was when Brett injured himself again.

    We only brought Donny Singe back this year. We did the Scientific stuff for 2009 and 2010.

    2009, and my reasons for the losses, were the Season Launch when we lost Brett for 4 weeks, and the fact that they welcomed in the 2 ref system in the off season. We didn't get used to that system for a while because we didn't have the trials to get used to it.

    Whether we play our trial(s) in the UK or in Australia shouldn't/won't matter. As long as they are trained up into it, and well rested the week after before going back to training after a week at home to rest, they should be fine.

    It really does not say how much of a financial gain it is, how about giving the players the extra $ not sure how that can get around the cap

    If the club could record this trial it would be awesome!
    Definitely would buy it.

    Might mean we would possibly be the first team to play at St Helens new ground!

    I read the article and thought 'why would coward loser ritchie actually write ritchie does another negative story on manly?' - I actually went online to the dt before I went "d'oh". Ahh brain farts, where would we be without them?

    Step 1: See what manly is about to do.
    Step 2: Make up a neg story about it.
    Step 3: Submit story, eat 5 hamburgers and marvel at how well my career and life is.
    Step 4: Go to lunch.
    Step 5: Repeat until fired.

    Insert step 1A: If Manly isn't doing anything, eat 3 hamburgers to cure sadness, troll silvertails.net, find a story to steal, eat 4 'I'm happy again" celebratory hamburgers and continue to step 2.

    I think Ritchie tweeted it the other day which prompted the thread about Parish joining.

    Sorry ge, that was my bad for putting it in the news item. I almost never do that but saw the story and thought exactly like your step 1,2. They missed doing one yesterday so maybe they had an extra long lunch on Tuesday.

    Typical Ritchie rubbish, of course they should have a warm up game. The WCC game is unique and for the players a big deal. They should give themselves the best preparation possible and a warm up game is an important part of that.

    You have to feel sorry for Ritchie, the guy is a complete zero.
