    I'm willing to bet my left nut that Inglis will play. After all, the man's a hero. He prevents harm to women, remember? He doesn't cause it.

    Boy, I'd really hate to see you lose that bet. And not so much for your sake, but the thought of Sportsbet or Centrebet amassing a cache of unlucky punters' left nuts would put me off my lunch.

      Odds on he'll play I'd say, with Gallop mute.

    We ought to stop calling the Storm Purple knobs, as it suggests they're virile.

    Wow, we've never won a game down there. But this team has been breaking hoodoos for the past couple of years on a regular basis so I'm betting we can break another.

    I thought our ship for a top 4 spot had sailed but it seems that we may still be in contention provided we beat the Storm.

    The boys should be made to watch last years grand final on match day. To analyse the things they got right and to help fire them up.

    Here's hoping for the same line up that faced the Roosters.

    Never fear, SeaEagleRock8, I only bet my left nut when I'm reasonably certain of its safety. Unfortunately I'm far more casual with my right nut:)

    will this game see the Return of Brett Stewart ?

    This here is our season, we lose and we will be lucky to make the 8 and will be just making up the numbers IMO

    No 4th interchange, not suss at all. Not hard to guess who'll be the 17th player

    Left vacant to keep us guessing? Also they have to work out a replacement for Cross who got injured.

    Perry - we're not scared of anyone

       * By Dean Ritchie
       * From: The Daily Telegraph
       * August 19, 2009

    http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/perry-were-not-scared-of-anyone/story-e6frexnr-1225763502020


    THEY are confronting an 11-year hoodoo in Melbourne, but Manly prop Josh Perry yesterday ensured an explosive build-up to Sunday's match against the Storm by declaring: "We're not scared of anyone."

    The Daily Telegraph can reveal that premiers Manly - and the previous Northern Eagles - have never won in Melbourne since the Storm's inception back in 1998.

    During that period, the Eagles have lost all seven games - six at Olympic Park and one at Etihad Stadium (formerly Colonial Stadium) - but Perry is unconcerned at his club's miserable record in Victoria and believes Manly can still secure successive NRL titles.

    "We are right in the thick of it, despite everything that has gone on this year," Perry said. "We'll still finish fifth or sixth.

    "But we're not scared of anyone. There is still a lot of confidence in the camp. We have the team to go back-to-back.

    "The Storm and Dragons look pretty good but anyone in the top eight can do the job. We're looking forward to the big one against Melbourne. I'm not sure how many competition points will get teams into the finals, we just want to win all our games.

    "We have played against Melbourne in the last two Grand Finals - there is always plenty of rivalry, especially down there, where we haven't won for a while."

    Manly are adamant injured fullback Brett Stewart will not return for this game, with his comeback likely to be against Cronulla next weekend at Brookvale.

      Gee this statement worries me.  There is a lot of work to do just to qualify for the finals - we must beat one of Storm or titans, preferably both to be sure.  Perry seems to think it is a fait accompli.

    Unless he's been talking to Dan.
