Most 'Manly-like' performance this year!
No duds this week at all IMO
3 - Snake
2 - Killer
1 - DCE
Snake is definitely back to his best. Killer too, he makes a big difference out there in both attack and defence. I went for DCE for my third vote because I thought his kicking game was good (unlike Foran's) and because he showed his class by playing footy and not letting the booing get to him.
It was good to see our forwards playing like forwards tonight. Jake T, Willie, T-Red and Mateo all played well (even though Mateo's passing wasn't the best). Hodges had some good runs from dummy half and Starling and Burgess gave some good go-forward when they came on.
Turbo Tommy still needs to learn defensive positioning on the wing and Killer saved a situation late in the game when he went for an U/20's intercept, but good on the kid for grabbing two tries. His attack I can't question.....but he is still learning the wing in first grade.
Special mention to Mateo and Jake T.
3 snake. (Awesome)
2 Mateo (looked dangerous all night)
1 killer. (Another captains knock, who else got a woody when he made that break?)
3 Tom Symonds
If Willie wants to go around again we should keep him. He's been gold the last couple of weeks.
1 - Jorge
3) Snake. Dangerous every time he touched it, rock solid in defense, almost faultless game: made their "speedster" look pedestrian lol
2) Big Willie. Some huuuuuge charges put us on the front foot, lots of energy and really involved. Best game he's played for Manly.
1) Killer. Captain courageous is baaaaack!! Some good line breaks and actually showed some speed again. Awesome!
3. Jake Trbojevic
Jake T was fantastic tonight, enabled the backline stars to do their thing.
Maybe, just maybe the season isn't over.. Can't think of a poor performance tonight. For me thought T-Red, Mateo and Jake with Killer, Snake, Horo all very good.
Snake Killer Mateo
Snake - daylight second
Taufua - up yours to the knockers...he took some crucial high balls and was devastating with the ball in hand
Jake T - outstanding defence and took the ball up strongly. I actually think it was one of his best performances of the season.
Tom Symonds and DCE were solid on the right edge too.
Taufua, Brett, Lyon, with mentions to Horo, Symonds, Lyon, both Trbojevics, Mason, DCE and Matai. There were no bad performers tonight though, some just had more impact than others.
Separate names with a comma.
