    <p>This occasion was made-to-order for Manly.</p>
    <p>It was a cold night, their team was near full strength, they had plenty to play for and were playing a lowly rated team with zero top-eight credentials and a very poor record away from home.

    I thought Gould said on the roast that he did not watch the game, after reading that tripe I believe him.

    his point was that Manly had everything in their favour and by far the more to play for, but they farked up and blew it to lose to what was the "lesser" team.

    2 sloppy passes killing what should have been a very healthy halftime lead was where the game was lost for mine

    It really reminded me of the Titans game earlier this year. We looked like we were on top for most of the game but threw a couple of intercepts and couldn't convert enough chances. Not that we were great and one of their tries was soft as but it was hard to see were we went wrong

    Realistically we should have gone into half time 16-6 up, luck hasn't been on our side for a while, really when was the last time we scored against the run of play?

    Look the intercept is a speciality of the Raiders especially Monaghan.  We should have known that and not got into catch and pass mode near their line with them in ours.  I think the pass was from Farrah and he needs to be smarter.  I'm not a fan of his game.  Stay at fullback and catch the bombs and tidy up.  Forget the Brett Stewart impersonations.  You're not quick or smart enough.
