    Those two 2 point losses out of 3 also speak volumes about this year.

    I'm glad to hear someone finally talk about "vertical planking".

    "Horizontal planking" gets all the publicity, but from what I have seen "vertical planking" (also known as "standing") is much more popular.

    A whole bunch of people were doing some synchronised vertical planking outside the ticket office when I caught the train this morning.

    I was looking at that yesterday. Our defense has improved markedly on last season and we are now able to win the close games confidently. The Cowgirls were lucky to get away with one and Manly should never have been allowed to get out to such a lead. I'd be interested to see stats on how teams score points by quarters, Manly have scored a lot of points in the last 20 minutes of matches this seasn which is in stark contrast to last season where they could barely cross the tryline in the second half.

    Not only can we come from behind in attack but our defense seems to go up about 10 notches when we do fall behind, i think Gus mentioned this during the game :) This is why we are only losing by small margins when we do lose.
