    I so want manly to win the Minor P. It's worth a 100k. Perhaps I just don't want the money to go to the club with bottomless pits of cash: the storm.

    How many points ahead is enough? I am thinking 43. So we need to win by 35. Doable? The Panthers have nothing to play for, so hopefully they will roll over like kittens.

    Come on manly, lets see some touch footy :)

    Beer & bourbon bribe for Panthers


    By Dean Ritchie | September 03,
    http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/sport/nrl/story/0,26799,24284592-5006066,00.html


    IN an old-fashioned Aussie gesture, Melbourne chief executive Brian Waldron has offered Penrith two kegs of beer and a case of Jim Beam bourbon if they can topple Manly in Saturday's match at CUA Stadium.

    A Penrith victory would almost certainly hand the Storm their third successive minor premiership and Waldron has offered to provide the refreshments for the Panthers' Mad Monday celebrations.

    The Storm are in a three-way dogfight for the minor premiership with Manly and Cronulla. But should Penrith win and Melbourne defeat Souths at Olympic Park on Sunday night, the Craig Bellamy-coached Storm will again have the title.

    Waldron will telephone Panthers chief executive Mick Leary today with the offer. "As long as they drink it responsibly,'' Waldron said. "If they want, we'll even make it light beer.

    "Our No.1 priority is to make the top two but we'd love to win the minor premiership. It would be our third successive minor premiership - no other club has done that in the NRL.
    Related Links

    "It will also be Matt Geyer's final premiership match at Olympic Park so we'd love to send him out with a minor premiership.''

    Manly chief executive Grant Mayer laughed off Waldron's offer. "The 'Great Waldo' has struck again,'' Mayer said.

    "We have no problem with the offer - as long as it goes under the Storm's salary cap.''

    Panthers v Sea Eagles Preview
    NRL.com
    CUA Stadium
    Saturday 5.30pm
    http://nrl.com/News/Latest/tabid/10244/default.aspx?id=52708

    MINOR premiership fame and glory, not to mention the $100,000 prize money that goes with it, goes on the line for the Sea Eagles when they travel to the foot of the Blue Mountains to take on the Panthers.

    Fortunately for Manly fans the Knights’ victory over the Storm last weekend did the Sea Eagles’ chances of taking the minor crown a huge favour but unfortunately they still will have to sit back and wait a tad over 24 hours to find out if they are no.1.

    The Manly boys currently occupy first rung on the NRL ladder, just eight differential points better off than the Storm, who play South Sydney the following evening.

    Here are the possible scenarios for the Sea Eagles:

    If they win, they are guaranteed a top-two finish.

    That finish would be first if they defeat the Panthers by more points (or anywhere between one and seven points less) than the Storm beat the Rabbitohs, or if the Rabbitohs cause an upset and beat Melbourne.

    It would be second if the Storm win and finishes with an eight-points-or-better winning margin.

    Should the Manly side lose to Penrith, they could potentially still finish anywhere from first to third.

    To stay first they’d need both the Storm and Sharks to lose.

    To be second they’d need at least one of those two teams to lose but if they falter and both the Sharks and Storm win they will end the regular season in the number three slot.

    Now… the Panthers can’t make the finals but they can get themselves a couple of free kegs and cases of ‘refreshments’ should they finish off their year with a victory over the high-flying Sea Eagles.

    That’s the carrot being offered by Storm boss Brian Waldron as he hopes to see his side win their third straight minor title.

    The home side welcomes back Brad Tighe at centre from the side that lost to the Warriors, which sees Maurice Blair go to the bench. Daniel Penese has been handed a starting jersey in the second row which sees Matthew Bell back on the pine and Toyota Cup Hooker of the Year Masada Iosefa has been added to a bench of six.


    Manly have named the same side that downed the Gold Coast on Monday night; however Steve Matai will likely miss a week due to a high shot.

    Watch out Panthers:
    The Sea Eagles’ defence needs some extra practice in the lead-up to the finals, knowing full well that the big games will have some brutality when it comes to collisions.

    As the Panthers might not provide the physical confrontation without provocation, look for the Sea Eagles’ big boppers to start whacking hard and often (legally of course).

    They will invite the tough stuff because if you come into an elimination clash a week from a grand final with nothing but soft wins and time off under your belly, you can be easily ambushed.

    Watch out Sea Eagles: Three Panthers desperate to score tries will be the trio of Paul Aiton, Daniel Penese and Frank Puletua, as this represents their last chance to get a four-pointer this season and avoid the big duck egg and ‘punishments’ that go with it.

    If a chance arises near the line the Sea Eagles should be extra watchful of these guys as nothing motivates more than the prospect of being the centre of attention in end-of-season high-jinks!

    Where it will be won: Desire.

    The Sea Eagles are likely to have plenty and the Panthers next to none.

    Internal strife has been continually mentioned throughout the season at Penrith and now they don’t have a finals berth on the line you might not see much resistance.

    Hopefully that isn’t the case and the Penrith boys show some pride as they say farewell to their loyal fans for the season.

    It is the last game for Luke Priddis, Luke Rooney, Rhys Wesser and Tony Puletua in the club’s colours and despite all the dramas over the years you’d think the 2003 premiership quartet would like one more win to celebrate.

    Manly make no secret of their desire to win the minor premiership and need to win and win well. They’ll be dripping with passion.

    The History: Played 69; Panthers 24, Sea Eagles 44, drawn 1.

    The Sea Eagles have won three of the past four including a 30-10 victory earlier this season at Brookvale.

    At CUA Stadium the Sea Eagles have the edge 18-15-1 – although worryingly they have won only one of the past seven against Penrith at the venue.

    Conclusion: It should be a case of Manly-by-how-much.

    The fact they played Monday night might have them a little heavy in the legs but as one of the fittest, if not the fittest team in the competition, they should be fine.

    Penrith are capable of an upset, but it is highly unlikely considering what is at stake for the Sea Eagles.

    Once the game is in hand the Manly boys will go to town in an effort to make the margin as large as possible, giving them the best possible shot at finishing the year on top.

    Manly to challenge Matai loading

    September 03, 2008 MANLY will contest the penalty handed out to centre Steve Matai in a bid to clear the New Zealand international for Saturday night's crucial NRL clash with Penrith.

    Matai is facing a one-week ban for a careless high tackle after league officials belatedly added loading to his charge based on a similar offence from last year's end-of-season Test match against Australia.

    The Sea Eagles plan to enter an early guilty plea but will argue that Matai's Test indiscretion - which earned a two-match ban - should not carry any loading into club football.

    If successful, the move would free him to play on Saturday as ladder leaders Manly battle for the minor premiership.

    Manly coach Des Hasler was confident the club's case would prevail and Matai would be able to play against Penrith.

    "We're leaving it in the hands of our legal eagles," said Hasler.

    "I'm confident he will be playing."

    The Sea Eagles are set to be boosted by the return of star five-eighth Jamie Lyon, who has missed several weeks with a knee injury.

    Lyon only needs to pass a late fitness test to be included against the Panthers.

    It's set to be a busy session at the judiciary this evening with Warriors full-back Wade McKinnon and Newcastle's Matt Hilder both facing spitting allegations which could impact in their clubs' finals aspirations.

    Jamie Lyon fit to tackle Panthers
    By Todd Balym
    AAP
    http://nrl.com/News/Latest/tabid/10244/default.aspx?id=52718

    Former Test star Jamie Lyon is set to make an early comeback from a knee injury on Saturday night to boost Manly's fight for the club's first NRL minor premiership.


    Lyon hasn't played since straining knee ligaments in Manly's round 19 win over Parramatta but is almost certain to make an early return to face Penrith at CUA Stadium with the Sea Eagles desperate for their five-eighth to get some game time ahead of the finals next week.

    "I'm very confident. It feels really good and it's healed good and I'm just raring to go pretty much," said Lyon.

    "It's healing well and a little bit ahead of schedule but it feels great and I'm 100 per cent with it.

    "I still have a few things to do. I have to see the specialist and our doctor and get through a few drills and that sort of thing but I'm hoping to play.

    "I've been training for a few weeks now in the gym and doing a bit of running and I'm looking forward to doing a bit of ball work with the boys.

    "It's a big thing for me. I want to get a couple of games under my belt ... hopefully it will be a chance to blow a few cobwebs out."

    The likely return of Lyon is a huge boost to Manly as many had written off their title credentials when he was struck down by injury six weeks ago.

    Manly coach Des Hasler said he was keen to give the 26-year-old a run before the club's home final next week.

    "We would really like Jamie to play this weekend," said Hasler.

    "He certainly brings another attacking dimension to our game and the players like playing with him."

    It's been over a decade since Manly finished top of the table at the end of the regular season, their last minor premiership won during the split competition season of 1997.

    Hasler insists he isn't concerned with the JJ Giltinan Shield and $100,000 prize for winning the minor premiership, he'd just be happy with a top two finish.

    The Sea Eagles, Melbourne and Cronulla are in contention for the top place going into this weekend's final round with Manly in the box seat and just ahead of the Storm by eights points on for and against.

    Hasler doesn't want his men thinking about piling on points to ensure top place, but rather simply focusing on a win so they don't give the Sharks an easy path into the coveted top two.

    "Our focus is on winning. It's about securing one-two because that gives you the opportunity to have a rest the second week into it providing you win your first (final)," said Hasler.

    Meanwhile, prop Josh Perry has hit back at Gold Coast hooker Nathan Friend who claimed the Sea Eagles had stepped over the mark with their intimidation in Monday's 28-10 win at Brookvale Oval.

    Friend threw a punch at Perry during the game because he was upset at an apparent swinging arm from the Manly forward and later said the Sea Eagles weren't premiership contenders.

    "We're not playing netball, we're playing footy," said Perry.

    "There was definitely no intention to go out there and hit them high.

    "I'm not too worried about them. They will be celebrating Mad Monday on Monday and we'll be out training for the semi-finals."

    Let's hope the infighting keeps up this week. They've been playing terribly but on paper they're fielding a very good side. If they want to, they can play. Fingers crossed they just don't want to:)
