From http://sportal.com.au/league-opinion-display/no-fairytale-for-eels-94856 While Parramatta has its fair share of worries, I can tell you life ain't all peaches and cream at Brookvale. The Sea Eagles are out of the eight after four losses in five games. I don't think it is crisis time but we need to start winning from Saturday against the Sharks. I'm not worried about making the eight but history shows teams need to finish in the top four to have a realistic chance of winning the title. Manly forwards have absorbed some heavy criticism this week but have copped it on the chin and realise their only place to answer the claims they should be wearing skirts is on the field. There have been a few distractions in recent weeks, with much speculation on the futures of Trent Hodkinson and Steve Matai. While Hodko is off to the Dogs next year, I hope Stevie stays, but it remains very much touch and go. I don't think money will be the final decider.
