    I have it on impeccable authority that Matt Orford will be sidelined for the next four weeks.

    He has had his leg placed in a brace and is also experiencing unexplainable blackouts. He is not a well boy at all.

    This further explains Des's selction of Clint Haldin on the bench.

    If he was experiencing "unexplained blackouts" then how could anyone offer a recovery timeframe of 4 weeks ? :lie:

    Ballin should be halfback

    makes sence since we like to play all our half backs at hooker, Dunners, monas, burns, groom

    Monaghan has adequately demonstrated that you don't need a brain to be a half back in Manly colours.

    If this is true, I would rather see Monas go to half to give Ballin the spot.
    Nothing against Halden, he is solid but Ballin is a standout & in my opinion deserves a run ahead of him.
    Looking to the future MB is more important to hang on to than Halden as we have Groome to play halfback (not hooker! !!!).

    Why Halden? how old is he? He doesnt look that great in PL... dont know if hes the future... id rather blood Groom.. why play him at hooker? Why play Groom at hooker in PL now that Halden is out?

    Whos making these wild decisions.

    Jungle King I have been a Manly supporter for 30 years and joined this website membership about a year ago.

    My information is from someone extremely close to Matt, somone who he would talk to about his health.

    If OldBoy is who I think it is, then he's shared a beer with me without knowing. ;)

    Like a previous poster said, how can you put a time frame on an 'Unexplained' problem???

    My thoughts exactly. The only reasoning that i can come up with is that it seems having players be able to play in multiple poistions is the flavour of the month among some of the clubs. Tigers Storm Broncos etc. I think Des maybe on this track aswell.

    But still, have to agree with your surprise about Groom to hooker in PL. Makes more sense to allow him to gain valuable experience in the PL #7 before trying to make him a utility type.
