    - sarcasm added for the benefit of some.

    <*sarcasm>
    Is that one of the cattiest sounding forward packs you have seen?

    Kidwell is the only decent one. Our forwards should have it all over them.
    <*/sarcasm>

    Slater matching up against Stewart will be good though.

    Ok Daniel you obviously haven't seen the Storm play before. Johnson and Hoffman are both excellent players.

    I have seen them play but up against Kennedy, Menzies. i would much prefer their experience.

    Just because the storm wracked up a big score against 2 very very very poor teams doesnt mean they are going to do this to us.

    As long as Hill and Kennedy arent out then it should be fine

    Yeah I rate Johnson. Hoffman is reasonable too - though a contender for "ugliest man in the NRL" now that it looks as though Hoppa is on the way out.

    Manly must dominate the forward exchanges as our backs are going to lack some stability. However we now need to prepare for life Post Hoppa. With Alberts, Mullane, Hicks to come back in the inside backs it gives us some options.

    Their starting pack is ok - but the bench is a bit weak

    I am a big fan of Matt King, would love him in a Manly jumper.

    Hoffman also looks good for a young bloke.

    johnson and hoffman are two of the best young forwards in the comp..kidwell is an international.orford and hill are easily the best halves in the comp.if nsw picked a side on form over trials and first 2 games orford should be half-he destroyed the broncos up here.pace to burn out wide.their problem may be forward depth over a long year although robinson is due back soon.we must belt them up front big time to win this one.no way can we hold their backs if orford is given room.having said that i think we can rough up their pack and sneak in if things go our way.
