    SEA Eagles recruit Lewis Brown has opened up about his determination to lift his own game and help turn around the fortunes of the team that has lost their opening two NRL games.

    The Kiwi international also revealed the challenges he has faced at the new look outfit which started this season carrying so many expectations.

    “It’s been pretty tough not playing in the trials, I thought it was going to be a lot easier,” Brown said.

    “Your life and your career throws some strange things at you — coming to a new side and not gelling straight away is certainly one of them.

    “I’m pretty sure if you asked the whole team they wouldn’t be too happy with their form.

    I’m not too happy with my form and I can play a lot better and I will be putting my foot forward to make sure I do that from this week on.”

    Brown said he joined the Sea Eagles to help the club back into the finals and become more successful and he will be doing everything he can to achieve that.


    “It’s about putting my head down, working hard and making sure I am getting on the same page as the boys in my team,” Brown said.

    “It makes you more determined, I am one of those people that don’t like to lose, I want a successful team.”

    Brown said he has been in teams that have faced this predicament before and they have always found our way out.

    “There is a strong attitude here that we want to work hard and work together and all as one. And I’m pretty sure we’ll find our way out of it pretty soon,” he said.

    “It’s just all about staying together — your back’s against the wall and you’ve got a lot of pressure on you.

    We are playing a sport that everyone judges us … and it is a results driven sport.

    “We know what goes on inside these walls and we’ve got every confidence I’ve got all the faith in the boys that we can turn this around pretty soon.”

      We are trotting out players one after another saying how they are going to do better. Instead of telling us, just do it! This romance with the media is not Manly.

      Talk is cheap. Performance is what matters and is reflective of whether you believe in what you are saying

      Does anyone else find it more than a coincidence that both of Barrett's Penrith recruits, neither of whom had any game time in the pre-season (Nines or trials), have started both games we've played so far and neither have been all that good?

      I'm not saying that Brown and Koroisau are the reason we are 0-2, far from it. They have just been part of the problem. I am saying that it adds fuel to the thinking that Barrett is looking after the recruits from his old clubs (add Green and Vave) mostly at the expense of those who were already here at Manly.

      Brown as a current Kiwi international I can understand being in the NRL side, though he needs to improve on the field and not just talk about it in the media. But Koroisau, with what he went through personally and the fact that he didn't play at all in the pre-season, should be in NSW Cup.

      that Green has been selected again is unfathomable Vave was already here Brown & Koroisau have not lived up to expectations but nor have Killer, Jorge T, and DCE. I'd pick Parcell but wouldn't write off api and lewis just yet

      Lost me at 'I thought it was going to be a lot easier' seriously - why? You should have seen moving to a new team as a big challenge and throw everything you have at achieving great things. Pull your socks up and get with the program

      As I said last week, STFU and just let your actions do the talking.

      All this BS talk is starting to really piss me off.

      When players come out and say they will make more of an effort to perform they become more accountable to the fans and to the media.
      The talk from management is also on notice . Result driven business. Toovey not up to standard even though he coached Manly to a grand final and finals before just missing out on the finals last year with a massive injury toll.
      We have heard all the talk and we all will be waiting for them to deliver.
      What adds fuel to our fire is the way our Legend Toovey was harshly judged on his coaching performance and even tough its not Barretts fault Toovey got sacked it will be his fault if he doesn't get results from a very competitive team the great and incomparable and Immortal Fulton handed over to him on a silver platter.

      I would much rather that the players were quiet and not say anything through the week and play like the good team that we know they are. Too much talking like they are trying to convince everyone how good they are ( maybe themselves too). They will eventually get there as there are too many good players in the team.

      I also wonder if its a coincidence that Gould never put up much of a fight to keep these two that left with Barrett.

      Just for fun maybe these stories quoting players saying what they will do that appear during the week before the game should be read out to the playing group straight after the game, win, lose or draw. Kind of like a recap in front of their peers.

      We have scored 28 points against 64. The players should be in lock down until they actually have something to crow (or squawk, not tweet) about.

      To be fair I think our media manager ( not Couzo he's just there in name) is just trying to push out non stop good news stories regardless of the **** we are in.

      Not sure how he'll manage that if we 0/8 but you can bet they'll still keep coming as otherwise there's a LOT ( and by a lot I mean a truck load ) of kudos for what they have done on the line.

      And we just can't have Bozo, Mr Fluffy and ZtH looking silly can we???......lol

      This positive press is very un-Manly like, our team thrives on the siege mentality and believing in us against the world. Could this be another reason we have spiralled?
