    A PACT between the Sea Eagles forwards to lift their game has been the secret behind the team’s revitalised defence, which has added to the team’s impressive arsenal leading into the finals.

    haha I haven't heard the term 'arsenal' used in conection with Manly since Des famously commented on Michael Monaghan's matchwinning chip and regather:

    "Most halfbacks have got a good kicking game and have got the chip and chase in their arsenal and Michael really pulled it out of his arse...enal," said Hasler with a wry smile

    These are 'feel good' stories that every club could write every week. Parra has a pact to lift for Hindy; Titans have a pact not to win the spoon; 'Riff have a pact to make the eight... it applies to other sport,
    Aussie opens have a pact to blunt the new ball bowlers; Aussie cyclist have a pact to protect Evans in his quest for glory etc.

    It extends to politics: Labor has a pact to do it for Julia; Oakshot and Windsor firm on their pact . . .

    No harm done with the Manly story. The journo has filled some space and everyone is happy. But it is just spin.
