    Just checked the 4 day weather forecast and not looking good.

    Interwebs said heavy rain and thunderclaps for the GF........

    Why cant we just have a dry fast paddock on what is to be a lovely Sunday afternoon?

    Lets hope so for all peeps heading to the game (me also)

    hey somatik by coincidence I just wrote a piece in another thread about this very thing. Being a competition sailor its my big interest :angel:

    Yeah very good chance of rain, overcast day, S/SE moderate winds, cool temp so bring yer raincoats and brollies.

    Hope it'll be like the 2008 GF and we won't need em and the rain will stay away

    GO MANLY!!

    If the Manly players have to play in rain and thunder then I'll watch in rain and thunder. If they can't run around with umbrellas, then I'll watch without an umbrella.

    If it looks like rain, then based on recent history most of the Manly fans will stay at home and watch it on tv, and we might only have 10 -12,000.

    Sunday 2 October
    Summary
    Min 11 Max 17 A few showers. Windy. Sydney area

    Out West a high of 18oC.

    Partly cloudy. Scattered showers. Winds south to southwesterly averaging up to 45 km/h.
    _________________________________________

    The 2008 weather was similar but the odd shower did not occur out west after 2pm, was just a bit of grey sky day in the end and what turn out to be a brilliant night !

    A forecast of 'scattered showers' is OK, the forecast you don’t want to read is RAIN or RAIN PERIODS …

    Better to have the rain now than on saturday or sunday - the ground will drain well

    Actually we have had far less rain in Sydney today than I thought after looking at the BOM charts yesterday - it looked like it would be lashing rain all day today but its been largely dry.

    ANZ would be in very good playing condition right now.

    However the BOM 4 day charts are starting to look gloomy for sunday, and although much may change between now and then they are forecasting a low pressure system to intensify off the NSW coast sat night and pump rain into NSW all sunday.

    see: http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/4day_col.shtml

    have fingers crossed that like today it will be largely dry on sunday

    For Manly fans to venture to ANZ is the same as a Warrior fan to venture from NZ. IT is a cost and a major sacrifice to a hard fought lifestyle to travel that far :D:D

    I think the rain will be good for us. The way the warriors throw it around, a greasy wet ball will bring on plenty of errors.

    I agree with DSM5 a wet track will suit us, not massive amounts of rain on game day but just a nice greasy track.

    I agree that the ball is going to be wet and greasy and that's going to cause the ball to slip out of their hands but the ground is also going to be very slippery. It won't just be the Warriors slipping on the wet ground, it's going to be Manly too. I just checked the forecast for Sunday on the Weather Channel, it showed a picture of a sun symbol with a dark grey cloud raining. Apart from just one win at Brookvale Oval when Manly came up against Canberra and it was raining, Manly doesn't really have the best record of winning games when it's raining.:s

    I can handle the rain, I just hope its not blowing a gale. Just makes the game a little bit more of a lottery.
