    Back from a dirty weekend away :) which of coarse I interrupted to watch our Eagles go around ! Hahahaha..in fact, I pulled the pin on something I shouldn't have at the time - but priorities and all ;)

    [​IMG]

    JSL: That guy has some spunk. He has aggression. He has great tackling technique. Is probably one of our current top two props, plus he's 23/24. Lock him in Eddie, and by Eddie I mean Perry

    Starling: I've been a pretty harsh critic of his over the past few months, and to be honest, he wasn't great again last night, BUT, I saw in one set of six in defense, and one set in attack where he got pissed off, he lifted. I think if he can harness that aggression somehow, and maintain it, he'd actually be very handy.

    DCE: I want it to not be so, but it is what it is. He's probably the most important piece in our team at the moment.

    Hiku: Lifted - man did he lift....especially in defense. Excellent buy.

    Overall, excellent game against a pretty well full strength Bulldogs outfit. There's still a bitter taste in my mouth about the leaving Manly comments, but the team played like a team tonight, and looked like they were having fun.

    When we do that, we are at our best (I remember a time when B Stewart and Le'Strange did rock scissors paper in years past).

    I still hope we can somehow attain a 3rd party agreement for G Stewart, so he can turn his back on his souths contract. If I win the lotto, I promise I'll do it guys :)

    * "course"

    That's for you @Alan

    Ryan, your positivity sometimes makes me think you are tipsy.

    Kidding. I agree with your assessments and shall hold you to your lotto promise!

    Well done on your dirty w/e away, but isn't it only Saturday in Aust? As it's a long weekend...you've got a couple of more days to go!

    Get onto it!

    I think with DCE, FOZ, Hiku, Buhrer & JSL to build a team around, we have a very bright future.

    BTW Ryan. That's a pretty short dirty weekend away mate. It is only Saturday you know... Pfft young blokes these days. No stamina.. :p

    Mate, I totally agree with your opinions of Hiku and JSL.
    Brett Stewart is still the most important piece in our team IMO.
    Which comments about leaving Manly do you refer? Actual quotes please, not stories in the Telegraph.
    Glenn can't do a backflip now. It's too late as Round 13 has started. Start of round 13 is the cut-off.
    Does Toovey get any credit for the team's performance last night?

    JSL was organising the scrums late in the 2nd half which shows he has some kind of football brain to go with his frame. I could see him being a back rower/ bench prop rotation player for years to come.

    Guy I was happiest with was Snake.

    His games against the Knights and the Broncos were terrible.

    Great game from him last night.

    Yep, big time. I thought he had every player to a tee on the right wave length last night. Well played Toovey - happy to say it so as well.

    How did you rate Bells Ryan? It's only 10 mins from my place. Manfredi's is a super restuarant. We go there on Tuesdays a fair bit for locals night

    Hiku is guilty of the same defensive errors as Wolfie...

    You and going overseas, just man up, it's actually relatively inexpensive and of course you would stay here, kids all in one room, Leanne and I will take the living room/couch and you take our bed....just try not to soil it too badly
