    Not a lot to be happy with tonight so I'm focusing on something I enjoyed.

    I thought Starling showed that tonight mattered. He chased Inglis there at one stage (and tackled him when he got slowed by others). He got the strops a few times and did a few after the ball hits. And just generally kept getting involved.

    He is no superstar, but to me he really got stuck in.

    Absolutely.

    This isn't a backhanded dig at others. I'm just highlighting Starling as I think he's just a real trier.

    Lui
    JSL
    Symonds

    These 3 had a real good dig tonight. A good showing for the future. And these 3 have been re-signed.

    Obviously someone has their head screwed on.

    I don't want to knock the guy, because I do think he is a good honest toiler, but he missed his assignment on the Dylan Walker try early in the second half. He should have gone in with a lot more intensity that close to the line, but was caught clutching at thin air; a jersey grab.

    Napper's stand outs are why we got slaughtered. The benchies played better than most of the "superstars".

    Yeah, Starlin showed some real passion as did King, JSL and Lui. Plus Hodges was a super effort to play on.

    I thought it best to say nothing about Kingy-he is not first grade standard anymore. Love his passion, but he is a shadow

    Starlo would have been a great player off the bench in our heyday. Unfotunately like most of our forwards at the moment they are young and they are reserve graders at best at the moment. Horo has dropped off big time and JSL has no mongrel about him and crabs constantly. Lui is getting better but still only just above average and Hasson for some reason doesnt get a run??. No experience in big games and it showed tonight. And they wont learn anything from King.

    Starling is a tryer but the alarming fact when you look at his stats for this game, an average of 4 metres per hit up, he needs to do more as we are so struggling for any go forward. Too many busted forwards I am afraid!

    Starling is a forward that just adds depth for a team that has a good starting forward pack, not what we need at Manly right now but may be in the long run if we develop or purchase quality forward stocks.
