    RELEASED WTF? - viliame fifita and alec tuitavake

    Flanagan has lots of mates at Fox pumping him up at every opportunity. Fox have done the same for a few other coaches who were in their ranks in the past too including the 'great' Anthony Griffin and even Tooves. They'll pump up Flanagan's tires at every opportunity if Manly win a few games +...

    Is the Manly pack much improved 2023 ?

    Bulldogs and Eels had injury weakened packs and whilst we got on top for long periods it wasn't a great test. Even Souths this week are missing quite a few and we are basically at full strength. Paseka has definitely stepped up so that's something and I don't think we are missing Marty at...

    Pre-Game Souths v Manly [Round 4, 2023]

    I find watching Souths the game is usually pretty simple. If you give them field position that left edge of Walker, Mitchell and Johnston will carve you up. If you deny gifting them field position and then also make Latrell Mitchell chase kicks and make him do extra defensive work then...

    Post-Game Discussion Manly v Eels [Round 3, 2023]

    As soon as we look fatigued our defence falls apart. Been our them le.for a while that we can't defend when momentum is against us. Remembering Parra dropped bucket loads of ball tonight we've still let in 30. Positive side the attack is very impressive.... are we in for a roller coaster year...

    RELEASED WTF? - viliame fifita and alec tuitavake

    Don't even joke. That's the only way this deal could get EVEN worse. We'll be a laughing stock if we take Woods.

    RELEASED WTF? - viliame fifita and alec tuitavake

    It's tough to keep them all so I have some sympathy for the position the club is in but we don't seem to make retaining and blooding most juniors a priority so you'd wonder what the point is in recruiting them in the first place. Particularly when a guy like Tuilagi is recruited in from of...

    I'm just happy he's no longer collecting massive $$$ for his mediocre ( at best ) efforts. And also happy I don't have to scream " don't pass it " every time he spins in the tackle and considers a flop back offload and also happy not to say " don't drop it " every time he rises to his feet...

    Thomas Flegler

    Jessie Bromwich has been mirroring Marty Taupau's downwards trajectory for several years now. The Storm should have paid his cabfare to the airport.

    Do you smell another Manly Dynasty coming ?

    I'm not convinced of a dynasty by any means but am hopeful of jagging 1 premiership with this group of emerging players so long as you know who stays fit. That's the hope anyway. I think this year will tell us if we are on the right track or not. Think it's all still up in the air.

    The Top 8 / Wooden Spoon, your choice VOTE NOW!!

    Yeah I think the Sharks and Roosters are my standouts - leaving Parra out entirely was harsh but I had to shoehorn us in somehow.

    How Many games will Schuster play in 2023

    I'd have my money on Johns based on experience + the fact I reckon Weekes would be a super number 14 to play multiple impact positions just while he's finding his feet in first grade off bench after the early heat comes out of the game . But who knows how Seibold thinks. Johns would have...

    The Daly Cherrygraph

    DCE at 34 isn't going to start to want to dig into the line and straighten the attack to create space for our outside runners all of a sudden. I wish he would but it ain't gonna happen. As for what DCE averages in Supercoach or whatever the Dally M's say or how well he plays for Queensland...

    Kaeo Weekes

    Weekes was very impressive everytime I watched him in reserve grade last year. Yet it was not enough to get him a game until the season was cooked. The most exciting thing about the new coach is that you know the same old blokes aren't going to be trotted out every week. There's a chance for...

    Does Burbo cement a Top 17 spot in 2023 ?

    Yeah I've yet to see anywhere near enough from Burbo - happy enough to keep him in the squad at the bottom end of the top 30 for a rainy day and let him develop....... but he's yet to show he's anything better than a handy back up yet for mine. This is really his year to step up - maybe...

    Brown-Harper player swap

    Being arguably slightly better than Harper is no great recommendation. I didn't much rate Brown even when he was a Parra regular and had some hype about him. He'll be 30 soon and doubt he's going to set the world on fire. That said, these rumors are hardly likely to be totally made up cause...

    Tommy T Injured - usa bound

    Yes it's frustrating all these injuries but when Tom is fit he changes games and turns us into a genuine force almost single handedly. Why on earth would we consider swapping him for some other bloke who plays every week BUT with half the ability. Lose Tommy and when the whips are cracking in...

    Tommy T Injured - usa bound

    Heaps of time to recover before Round 1 - let's not send for the Plastic Screen and the Green Dream just yet. Get back soon champ.

    Club News 2022

    This Fulton news bothers me more than the Des news. Cause if there's one thing I know about the Fulton's it's that they hold grudges... and they'll square up some time.

    The reality of it all.

    Indeed. Don't get all the doom and gloom. Des record with us in this second stint was just moderate for me given a pretty good roster. Don't get all the hand wringing about his departure. My best guess is with Des in 2023 we'd be a fringe 8 side again next year most likely. The Schuster's...
