    Allright lads getting nearer the biggy,Sunday cant come soon enougth.The weather's looking good for Sunday so your boys cant bitch and bellyache about the weather conditions.
      Whats the Manly forwards like,i know you've lost Kite,can we expect any of your props to stand up against Jamie Peacock IMO the best prop in the world without a doubt and Kylie not doing bad either.

      COME ON YOU RHINOS
     time to CULL us a sea eagle :D :D

    Josh Perry does not take too many backward steps and he & Minogue have a history so it could be on for young and old.

    Manly's prop rotation has been very constant - good metres and not a lot of room in the middle. The strength of last year is that whilst Kite is our best prop we didn't suffer much by the rotation. Our big men are all very mobile.

    Kylie would only replace rose in our pack.

    So even without kite our pack is up to it. Peacock didnt look like the best prop in the world the last couple of times i saw him play out here, not by a long shot

    Manly's missing two props from last year's grand final - Kite and Bryant.  Both huge losses.  The run-on side is still very strong indeed, but it remains to be seen how good some of the replacements are.  The 20-0 drubbing involving these backups in the first half last week does not give a lot of confidence.
    The press rate the lack of match fitness of one Rhinos player as a major factor.  Many of the Manly players have played only half a trial game, and the remainder only one trial game this season. That's Manly's biggest challenge in being competitive.

    Hey Rex,its about time they changed the format of the WCC not wishing to sound like im sucking up to you lads but the Aussie teams are at a disadvantage when they come over here.Travelling no competitive games leading up to the game,where as us we're playing in our own back yard played a few trial games leading up to our comp starting plus the 3 games we've played in our comp.
        Idealy iff there was a window of time to allow the teams to compete against each other 2/3 weeks after their finals,but thats asking alot after along hard season.Other solution would be to alternate each season,but from what i'm hearing the NRL ar'nt interested and it's more lucrative to play the game over here.

    its held only to promote the game in England so no point in playing it in Australia.

    No one pays much attention to it here unless their team is in it.
