    That’s 3 tries all from forward passes.

    MVP: Rd 23 v Roosters

    3 Ola 2 Vaega 1 Sipley I am a Schuster fan, but aside from his 2 kicks, he was woeful. We are fortunate that there are teams like Tigers, Bulldogs and Dragons that are marginally worse, or we would be in line for our first wooden spoon. Shudder to think what Panthers and Warriors will do to us...

    Tommy Talau

    We also have Faulalo from NSW cup team scoring around 13 tries this season but can’t get a look in. Talau is another dud signing from the worst team on the comp. We have become a joke of a club when it comes to recruitment, coaching, and being accountable from the top down.

    Game Day: Manly v Roosters [Round 18, 2023]

    Yet somehow we give Woods another year.

    Tommy Talau

    Look at other teams; Souths make one signing and it’s Jack Wighton, and they’ve already got a top squad. Don’t try and tell me Brooks is a marquee signing, while Paulo and Talau are barely first graders. Would rather a gun front rower or hooker, if we had cash to splash.

    Let's get behind our mighty club

    I have followed Manly since 1969 and have not felt as bad about this club since the Northern Eagles debacle. At least we bought players like Matt Orford, Steven Bell, Jamie Lyon, Brent Kite, Ben Kennedy to help turnaround the team, as well as integrating exciting youngsters like the Stewart...

    Latu Fainu

    I should be shocked by that news, but given our recruitment policy in the past few years, it just seems par for the course. I don’t understand why all the good and promising juniors we develop are so quickly discarded, yet so many big average players are signed from other clubs. Let alone...

    Tommy Talau

    I understand we discarded Feledy long before we signed Talau; but it does relate to our recruitment policy, when he have a talented local junior in our ranks, and 12 months later are buying another clubs up and coming centre, for probably more money, yet has less upside, and less affinity to our...

    And we let Josh Feledy go for this dud

    Another underwhelming signing; why bother developing Humphreys then refuse to play him for the couple of matches that DCE is missing.

    Game Day: Raiders v Manly [Round 12, 2023]

    2 stupid kicks by DCE; the 7 tackle set just before his chip and chase. Why not kick long for Saab and keep the ball down their end with a minute to go. He never has these brain explosions for QLD, but always seems to find them for Manly

    Tommy T Injured - usa bound

    He was gassed, as I noticed him make those tackles then move to the wing. There was a passage of play in the first half when Hynes made a break up the sideline and Turbo rounded him up very quickly, so I think the speed is still there. As for the fitness, the whole team seems off the pace, when...

    Croker should be 13; keep him in there for defence and leave the ball playing to Schuster and Lawton/Gordon

    Other Games [Round 11, 2023]

    I think the non penalty try Melbourne should have got for the Walsh shoulder charge on Olam was more crucial. It was a 12 point turnaround as Brisbane got their penalty try straight after.

    Pre-Game Manly v Sharks [Round 11, 2023]

    Souths have been doing that against top 4 teams for several seasons. We only do it on the odd occasion except for Turbo’s breakout year.

    Pre-Game Manly v Sharks [Round 11, 2023]

    The thing is we have 2 first grade coaches yet we look even worse than last year. Compare us to the way Souths play in attack and defence and we seem light years from a premiership.

    Lock for the rest of 2023 and beyond

    Croker has no idea in attack at dummy half let alone putting him at 5/8; he is a gutsy player but is one of the reasons we struggle in attack. Would rather blood Fainu if it came to it, but only if Schuster doesn’t come good.

    Tommy Talau

    Harper was one of our better players today; Parker is more of a liability, and Woods and Keppie should both be in reserve grade. Croker is great in defence but does nothing in attack. API showed what we have been missing in a 9.

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

    Not sure about a reasonable game, as he butchered an easy try in the corner by not using his right arm, therefore keeping Gutherson away from his put down. Also dropped a bomb late which kept Parra in it till the end. If the jamming is coached then that’s another issue, bit otherwise that side...
