    Did you notice in commentary last night the commentators were running through a list of places you DON'T want to be playing a semi final.

    I ticked off seven places mentioned, including Canberra - the one not mentioned was Brookvale despite us being in pole position for third place (and possibly even second if the Bulldogs really get the staggers with their injury).

    I'm quite happy that we're not being talked up as I rate Manly higher than I do the buffoons from the national capital!

    I'll put my neck out again - if we avoid injury we are in this comp for the winning.

    YES YES YES - I thought exactly the same thing. I kept waiting for them to mention how tough a semi at Brookie would be but .......nothing.

    A lack of respect for Manly can only work in our favour.

    Manly have won 60% of home games this year - 5 from 9 at Brooky (55%) & 1 at the SCG.

    So much for Fortress Brookvale this year!

    Canberra have won 64% of their home games - 7 from 11.

    I know teams hate travelling down to Canberra as it is much colder than in Sydney.......

    Ah yes, the tundra of Canberra Stadium. Many a brass monkey afternoon spent there.

    yeah we have dropped some games at brookie which is disapointing however
    we have also picked up some good scalps on the road
    we touched up the dogs at telstra
    out played penrith at home, pipped the knaughts at twoheadsville and we got the chooks and souths away aswell.

    Not many teams tend to win like that away from home.
