Totally disagree with the people who think having players in SOO will derail the Seaeagles Express next season. This was Bennetts whinging mentallity during the Broncos dynasty when they had 12 Broncos in the SOO team. How can you complain about having the best players in the world who miss 3 games out of the season?? Manly will have 3-6 involved in SOO & personally, I only view SOO as a high quality mid week game that does not get me near as pumped as watching ANY Seaeagles game but find it hypocritical to complain about having rep quality players. Keep in mind also - *Players come back more confident & usually go to another level after playing SOO. *Its a great opportunity to give fringe players & rookies a chance to show their talent & this can be handy by seasons end if called upon. * The old injury complaint can happen any time - thats footy.
