    <p>THE four months of torture, when boys become men in rugby league, hits home hardest to the mums when they tally up at the supermarket checkout each week. It is never so evident than at the Manly Sea Eagles, where coach Des Hasler’s bone and muscle training regime has now become a benchmark in the game.</p>

    Apparently there was a change of heart. Perhaps Manly decided to tow the party line on this one, rather than creating enemies once more before the season has even started.

    On the Bradford Bulls start for Ox, this snippet came from rleague.com. Looks like the Bulls are turning into a mini-Manly in more than just playing personnel.

    "Bradford Bulls have announced that for the pre season trial game against Leeds Rhinos at Headingley on Sunday their Full Squad will wear the new 'state of the art' GPS Monitoring System.

    This is believed to be the first time that an English Super League has used the modern satellite system in a competitive game in this country.

    The technology is the same as was used by the England Rugby League team in the recent Gillette Four Nations Tournament.

    Bulls Head of Physical Performance, Geoff Evans, said:

    "The use of this system will provide us with valuable information in regards to Rugby related Physical Performance Parameters. We will endeavour to use this information to improve all aspects of our preparation and performance for the forthcoming season."

    Bulls Head Coach Steve McNamara added:

    "Having seen the technology and its huge benefits in place at other organisations, both in Australia and in the Gillette Four Nations Tournament, we are delighted as a club to have the opportunity to use this system to enhance us both for the short and long term."

    Jeez - 14 reps of how many kilo's? I'm currently doing 10 sets of 10 of 40 k/g's about 4 times a week, and whilst it's not hard on the first 5 sets, it really starts burning for the last 5 reps.

    Look at the picture of Lussick in the Daily. He looks absolutely huge and is a very exciting prospect.

    My image of Ryan was very much affected by his effort in his undies out hanging out a window in the car park at the SFS following a Manly flogging in a semi against the Dragons in 2006. :) :) :) :) :)

    Undies?  He was starkers.

    As for the Weevil Boys allusion in the title of this article, let's hope the players have more substance on their base than an offering from that minority company.

    Sorry to get into the Pizza Wars and Mata's cheap shots at Cam/Cliffy but Mata leaving his last employment had nothing to do with the product and more to do with external factors. Both are you are missing the point with your cheap shots.

    [/quote]  Last I checked (from the mate who inherited the shops) one was taking more than your busiest Australian store (with the profit to match) and the other had household penetration you blokes could only dream of.

    Pizza Haven is dead (or rather that's what happens when you're bought out by the number 3 in the marketplace).

    When are you going to come and penetrate my house Jatz?

    Had some sensational independent Co. pizza in both Melbourne and Perth recently.  But I would suggest that Domino's commitment to quality in the last 2 years sees their Big Taste range up there with the best of the independents.
