    Undermanned and 16-0 down, that is a hell of an effort

    Anyone not proud of the guts shown from the side there has an agenda or no idea

    Yep. Some players didn't show up but Symonds, JSL and Lui made me proud tonight. Thought Lui has been one of our best pigs all year

    Yep, redeemed themselves in that 2nd half.

    How schizophrenic was it though ? Abysmal, 1st half and then that last 45 mins.

    Missing 4 from the pack and under the pump

    Say what you will about players going elsewhere you can not question the fact that tonight all the boys put in

    Oh and when dce was having a shocker in the first half plenty of the boys were there for him

    Ditto.

    I'm pi$$ed off massively Nein didn't show a replay of the "knock-on" that led to a Dogs feeding a scrum/ go ahead 17-16, field-goal.

    We set ourselves up perfectly to level it again and go to golden point. Just couldn't quite do it again at the death there.

    I'm absolutely gutted, but even more proud of our effort.

    Going to take a good while to get over this.

    Going to bed. "Sick as a dog" but rock-solid proud and appreciative of our team!.

    Eagles forever.

    It was an awesome effort from Manly in spite of the abysmal refereeing efforts once again. Dogs tries in the first half coming from absolute garbage decisions, Starling in the bin after the dogs try to dislocate his shoulder and then 2nd half they're allowed to lay all over us and then markers going early and not square when we were in golden point. Manly were great in the 2nd half but the NRL shows again what a piss weak organization it is.

    Great effort by the team to come back
    like that, it will be disappointing if it is an
    end of an era with mass departures but
    a lot of so call lower tier players really showed
    up tonight with the veterans.

    Scrappy, dishevelled, down 16 nil and out on their feet but never gave up.
    A Manly effort.

    Brave effort-but what a pop gun end to the season. Please Choc tell us tomorrow you are off to Parra so we can rebuild a team who wants to be here! Don't let the door hit you on the ass champ

    That final 50 mins was a great effort, and exactly what I wish they were playing like the last few weeks.

    I didn't think we'd have the depth to push to the GF this year, too many key injuries... But I'm glad to see the boys competing to the death and throwing everything they have at the opposition. If a few calls had gone our way we probably would have won. But alas it wasn't to be.

    I think this squad still has a mountain of potential, and a lot of the upset stars who want out are really just dead weight as far as the cap goes. I think we can rebuild in a season or two and become very competitive again.

    For this year though, up the Panthers. They're the only team left that I don't hate.

    I am so sick of Choc and hearing of his big mouth! If he used it to support the club no one would dream of having a shot at him!

    I choose to enjoy the effort of those who played rather than take shots at someone who did not... But then again that is just me

    Well said everyone. We went out with plenty of dignity and I think we can all be proud of that effort. Thanks boys for putting in.
