    Jack Wighton free to negotiate ...

    I can’t wait to see which reporter has the clackers to put the spotlight on the elephant in the room. Sticky has been there 9 years and finished outside the top ten 5 times. He clearly upset his 2 co-captains a season back. Hodgson moved on and the resistance of Stuart to elevate Croker earlier...

    Lachlan Croker

    Last years best and fairest was sorely missed last night, his ability to shift the ball long on both sides of the ruck is sometimes overlooked. Makes our boys work a little easier and the defenders a bit harder and cleans up in defense time and time again. Fingers crossed he is not out for too long.

    My 2 things from last night ..

    Best win we have had for a long time , the tussle around the 20-30 minute mark showed real heart from our side , we won the arm wrestle off the back foot. Very few forced balls and we really respected our possession, thats culture.

    Manly in Crisis (a mega thread)

    Penn, Dessy and DCE. Of the 3 if you had a choice to select on a fit for purpose basis in purely leadership skills, who do you pick ? Which one attracts a marquee player to the club at MARKET price or unders ? God knows if we pay overs for one more we are screwed for another five years !

    The Daly Cherrygraph

    Its ALWAYS about him. Remember the last play he put on against Melbourne when we beat them last round this year ? We were up by six with 20 seconds to go and he is going for a try assist in the corner. The week before we lost through complacency againt the Cows after being in a position were we...

    Quick question- Hooker in 2023 ?

    More importantly, who are our front rowers in 23. Croker was our 9 last year and we played off for a GF slot. He has tried his gutz out in a team on the back foot every week this year and been one of our best. So before you throw the baby out with the bath water, best open your eyes and have a...

    The Daly Cherrygraph

    He is the current Qld and Australian skipper and doesn't attract fellow guns to play along side him in search of a premiership, says it all. I think he is a good guy and a great player but his lack self awareness lets him down as a leader. Penn the same , the Jersey fiasco started right in the...

    Deep deep doo doo

    Nailed. We over analyze a real simple game of inches at times, top for sides mostly hold the best big boys that revel in the tough stuff. Lazarus, everywhere he went so did the Winfield Cup. Who's our leader in the engine room that's going to dish out better than we are getting in that real...

    Croker Experiment OVER!

    So……..we go from one game from a GF to this ****fight, and you want to blame the bloke who has made the most tackles for the team for the year. Then , after running backwards tackling his guts out makes it to nearly every play at dummy half for the next set over and over for eighty minutes...

    The No-Look News (Schuster Chronicles)

    It was a case of if you don't laugh, you cry. What about the the one handed cross field run and the no look back handed flick pass when nobody was there ? It should be on replay on his bedroom TV from now until next season, if that's how much he values possession he aint no good to us !

    Who is in the jumper.

    We have players who believe in their jumper, we know who they are and that's the reason we walk through the turnstiles and part with our hard earned at the gate. Their journeys earning the right wear those jumpers are individual and each one unique, just like the person who wore that jumper...

    The No-Look News (Schuster Chronicles)

    Genuinely , I hope the people close to him have enough intestinal fortitude to advise him he needs to work on his fundamentals. His talent and gifts may have held him in good stead in juniors but not against men. Its the big show now and he is coming up short , i really hope he understands god...

    Game Day: Dragons v Manly [Round 19, 2022]

    The way he is officiating its obvious why betting was banned on sports other than racing.

    Lachlan Croker

    I recall him scoring 2 tries and being our best against the Raiders a few years ago at 5/8. I have no doubt he follows instruction and plays within himself selflessly, you can see the respect from his team mates. The ten minutes he put on against the Cows the other day shows he still has those...

    The Bruise Brothers

    These two accounted for 25% of our tackle count again last night with Schmole right up there. Knights came out strong early and were camped in our half. These guys ate really laying the platform for us ATM. If another couple of forwards can raise the defensive bar , we will be right up there...

    Josh Aloiai re-signs until 2025

    The Bruise Brothers

    I think thats a bit harsh, been a few others aiming up out there too. The object here is to highlight an obvious combination doing a great job in defense.
