In real terms 2015 was a major disappointment.... Fact is , still finished mid table above half the comp, many satisfied with their results after finishing lower than us. The bar has been set so high at Manly, that anything other than finals is poor & this is a good thing. Would ANY team with so many crucial injuries & internal turmoil have done ANY better - I think not. Sometimes a tough all round season can get back that missing fire, no doubt these experienced blokes in Stewart, Lyon, Matai will have that extra bit of fire to claim top spot & the new boys & rookies will imo - buy into it. Yes 2015 gave a heap of lows but under the circumstances, was not as bad as the table suggested. Are the Maroon & White glasses painted on here or does 2015 considering the cards dealt - put Manly in a good position for 2016??
