    Grand Final 2023 - arrogant P's v flashy B's

    Geeze. If Manly were in line to win three GF's in a row I'd be so cocky I'd have to wear a jock strap permanently.

    Kelma Tuilagi

    I'm always intrigued that such 'inside' information is gathered at a cafe/restaurant. Have you ever considered that such 'information' is intended to be leaked? If you want to keep something secret you don't blurt it out in a public forum. It's the first lesson you learn at KGB School!

    The NRL Finals Series - 2023

    You have to wonder about the merits of playing finals. Yes, they generate great revenue for TV and the NRL/AFL, but have a look at which teams are contesting the grand finals of the NRL and AFL... that's right, the teams that finished 1 and 2 in the regular season; the best two teams.

    The NRL Finals Series - 2023

    What has happened to the rule/penalty for deliberately passing the ball forward? I have seen it applied for many years. Is it still in the rule book? It would allow the Bunker to prevent such forward pass 'tries' from being awarded. The rules around the Bunker are a joke and invariably make our...

    No 1 position we need to fill for 2024

    I reckon Rueben Cotter would be ideal for us. He's an energiser bunny, can play prop, second row or lock. Never stops tackling, running and trying. If our pack had such a defensive juggernaut, along with Jurbo, we'd be able to hold any opposition forwards and then use our backs to attack. Our...

    DCE subtle dig at player managers

    You obviously know a lot more about this subject than me. But I've been wondering, what qualifications does a manager need? Do they have to obtain a business degree, an accounting degree, welfare checks? How do they develop their negotiation skills, knowledge of the media, PR etc? How do they...

    Jake Arthur

    He's still growing and, in time, will probably play as a lock as he has the necessary skills to link well with the backline. I think this was a very astute recruitment.

    I'm please with the extension. Brad is 100% Manly and you can't ask for anything more. He'll be a valuable utility as I'm sure he could fill in as a second rower as well as an outside back.

    DCE subtle dig at player managers

    Yep. The players need more help in evaluating the advice/direction their manager gives. I understand why a player - especially a young and naive one - needs guidance, but do they need a permanent manager? Why can a manager lock up a player for years? Why isn't there an NRL-sanctioned 'freelance'...

    MVP: Round by round catch up and 2023 MVP winner

    Interesting isn't it that our 'big' signings for 2023 -- Kelma and Condom -- didn't register a single point in the season. Good thing Doesn'tmatta recruiters didn't get to see this before signing Kelma (if this signing news is accurate). I'm sure most posters are like me: when we win it's hard...

    The NRL Finals Series - 2023

    I've always wondered why soccer matches incite such violence among spectators, in many countries. It's rare that you hear about such tribal violence in rugby, rugby league, AFL, American football... I've heard theories that it's because soccer is such a 'passive' sport with so few...

    Keppie told to leave, replaced by Tigers Alex Twal

    Tedesco or Moses? At least we got Woods. Unfortunately it was six years past his peak.

    Another Tiger? Aitasi James

    I'm happy with moving on Keppie. He has never fulfilled his early promise.

    Assistant Coach after Flanno

    Flanagan and Dymock didn't improve the team, did they? So who cares?

    Your preferred 2024 side

    Next season we will have, on paper, a top four backline. Unfortunately, there are questions marks over our forwards. The two most glaring are: Will The Shoe develop as a ball-playing second rower/lock? Will Burbo develop into a force, and learn how to keep his head out of the way to avoid...

    "Taking Unders", and the decline of the once-great clubs in the modern game

    Wayne Bennett has just released another book, penned by Andrew Webster. From an extract it details his deal to join Easts as coach. Apart from the salary, which was around $850,000 a season, Politis indicated that a sweetener could be a Sydney waterfront apartment . . . How is Manly -- or almost...
