    Still injuries but some new faces back. Ben Farrar is back and it looks like we have bought Troy Savage (former Wenty player) who has been playing in France adding depth to the centre position.

    Sam Short from the 20's makes an appearance at 7. Dane Chisholm to FB. Don't know much about the players on the bench.

    Manly Sea Eagles Vs Mounties
    Brookvale Oval, Saturday, May 25
    Kick-off: 3.00pm

    Broadcast: www.nswrl.com.au’s NSWRL Match Centre Scoreboard

    Summary: Two sides clash here that both currently sit outside of the top eight and should be desperate for the two competition points. Mounties sit in ninth on 10 points however a win here and losses to the Jets and Cutters could see them move into seventh by rounds end while Manly currently sit on the bottom of the ladder yet a win here could move them to within two points of Mounties such is the compressed nature of this year’s competition. Mounties would be smarting following their 42 point loss to the Wolves last week, which not only saw them fall out of the eight, but also knocked around their for and against somewhat. Mounties have been active in the player market during the week and have brought in the highly regarded Ryan Carr to help anchor the clubs halves for the rest of the season. Regardless of whether or not the Raiders send back, Williams, Cornish or Picker on any given week, Mounties will now know that they have a classy commodity in Carr to help steer the side around the park. Manly have had to call upon a number of fringe players given the clubs crippling injury toll however there is some good news with Dane Chisholm and Ben Farrar returning from injury while former Wenty player Troy Savage will also make his debut for the club.

    Talking Point: Casualty ward – The Manly recovery session this week would have resembled something similar to a scene from M.A.S.H. The Sea Eagles only finished the game with 12 players last weekend, with five players going down throughout the course of the game. A number of these players have been ruled out for this weekend at least and as a result Luke Williamson has had to search high and low for troops to take on Mounties. With the likes of Peta Hiku, David Gower and George Rose all already in first grade covering for the likes of Brett Stewart, Richie Fa’aoso, Jason King and Joe Galuvao, this test of depth probably could not have come at a worse time however a home game as part of a NRL triple header may well give his young side enough incentive to fire up.

    Prediction: If Mounties new halves can click, they can register their fifth win of the season. Mounties by 8.

    It'll be good to see Bani running around again even though he's playing for the opposition. He did us well when he was with us a few seasons back.

    I'm pleased to read that Dane Chisholm is back. He is a top footballer and would surely be playing first grade at several other clubs. It must be incredibly worrying for a fringe player such as him, not being given a chance to show if he is up to NRL standard.
    With Tooves rarely using his 17th player perhaps it's an opportunity to select Chisholm on the bench in 1st grade because he can cover every backline position, and possibly even play hooker/dummy half.
    Thoughts?

    FT here at Brooky and Manly have come back from 20-4 down in the second half to win 24-20. The match was turned on its head when Sam Sauiluma got sent off around 10 minutes into the half. Manly will move off the bottom of the ladder with the win.

    I got to Brookie in time to watch the last 10 minutes which started with Dana Chisholm cutting the defence to shreds in a 90-metre burst that again reinforced what a great attacking player he is. Gagan then scored in the corner and Chisholm slotted the goal for a fantastic victory.
    Well done guys.
    They should be playing before the first grade, not the Under 20s, where 12 tries were scored in a one-side game of football. It seems that every time Canberra wanted to score they did. Our guys tried hard but this competition shouldn't get priority over the NSW Cup. I watched Jamil Hopoate closely and was disappointed. Jake T is strong, and we have some big outside backs who are good with the ball but not too committed in defence.

    Chisholm played really well and is pressing his claims for an NRL spot should DCE or Foz fall over. I'm not sure about him playing hooker though as he sometimes is brushed off in defence. Jason Seage would be a better option at hooker - a real mongrel in D.

    Plenty of goers on the weekend and we never gave up. Mounties smashed us in a game about 6 weeks ago. Blake Ferguson played that day after he was dropped following the roof debacle with Dugan. But we hung in and got the points.

    Manly Sea Eagles 24 (D Strickland, D Chisholm, J Gagan, B Musolino, J Williams tries; D Chisholm 2 goals) def. Mounties 20 (M Bani, R Goldsmith, S Sauiluma, S Mataora tries; S Williams 2 goals)

    Chisholm could get a sniff if DCE is picked by Meninga for Origin.

    Foran and DCE are fearless in taking on the line which leads to some great tries but they have both won us games this year on the back of stinging and desperate defence. I do worry for our defence if either becomes unavailable.

    I vote Chisholm to fullback in 1st grade until Brett is back. We need an extra point of attacking spark.

    Yeah i agree with your point on Reserve grade being played befor u/20's. However the U'20's is a national comp like the NRL therefore it gets preference. But playing before the young blokes is a bit of a kick in the teeth for the wealth of good players in reserve grade.

    Geez, this bloke doesn't like us much. Mounties lost the game and the fight. Shane Shackleton certainly came off 2nd best!

    Manly run home over the top of a 12 man Mounties

    Mounties have lost a controversial match against the Manly Sea Eagles at Brookvale Oval on Saturday in what will surely be a turning point in their season after losing centre Sami Sauiluma in the 44th minute of the game through a send off.

    Mounties looked in control of the match early when big Sam Mataora broke the line in the 9th minute and crashed over next to the posts for Mounties to lead 4-0 after Sam Williams missed the conversion and were in again in the 14th minute when Sami Sauiluma pounced on a spilt grubber kick by the Manly fullback to increase the lead to 10-0.

    The game then went end to end with both teams making costly errors and no one gaining the ascendancy until the closing minutes of the first half when Manly were given four sets on the Mounties line after what appeared to be several knock on’s went unanswered by the officials to give Manly a glut of possession, which eventually led to a try in the 35th minute for them to take a 6 point deficit into the break, Mounties leading 10-0.

    It was in the 44th minute when the game changed for Mounties, after bombing a scoring opportunity a brawl erupted when Shane Shackleton was set on by a group of Manly players and in the ensuing melee which involved all 26 players Mounties were reduced to 12 players for the remainder of the match when Sauiluma was sent from the field while the instigator from Manly who was identified by the sideline official was inexplicably given a 10 minute rest and allowed to return to the play.

    From the ensuing penalty, which went in Mounties favour, Michael Bani was able to capitalize when he crossed out wide after receiving a nice cut out pass from Jarrod Kennedy to make it 14-4 after Williams’ radar was again offline and from the kickoff Mounties powered downfield and crossed the line when Reece Goldsmith did it all himself from dummy half to give Mounties the lead by 20-4 and looking comfortable.

    From the return of the sin binned player for Manly the game changed considerably with the home team again receiving a glut of possession and were able to run the tiring Mounties defensive line around eventually scoring in the 63rd and 69th minute to reduce Mounties lead to 20-14 and with injuries to several Mounties players adding to the insult, Manly were able to cross for a try in the 72nd minute before finding the line again in the 76th minute to give them the lead.

    Mounties were valiant in their effort to hold out a team with an extra man and a lot of positives could be found in the loss after the match despite the general feeling that the team had been given a bad deal out on the field.

    Shacks tackled Ligi (arguably late) and they scuffled on the ground. Our Dylan Hill (16) ran it and served it up to Shacks with some great uppercuts. Hill got sent to the bin but the Mounties bloke was sent off.

    Yeah I was looking on the NSWRL site on how to comment on that. His by-line has NSWRL under it, but clearly he is writing from the Mounties point of view entirely. No real journo would be that one sided. It's a joke really. Many aspects of the game are ignored, such as we scored 5 tries to 4, and our players are all nameless.

    Often the Newtown stories are the same, written by the Jets honorary media officer Glenn Dwyer, and published online as if they are NSWRL stories.
