I have noticed quite a few of the players that most of us want gone have just recentky been signed for another 2 years.
Taufua, Parker, Suli are 3 examples
Is Des too loyal to his players at the expense of Manly winning comps or does he see something we don't?
3 points - Tommy Turbo
2 points - Sirro - powerhouse 2nite
2 point - Walker - awesome performance 2nite, passed well but also took on the D
Special mention - Suli was v good and even doing the 1 percenters in defence - well done
Is young Turbo still posting on silvertails?
Although I did not agree with a lot he said, he is a passionate supporter.
One thing I will agree with him thou. Tommy T the player is awesome. I just hope his D play this year improves like it should. He is our no1 attacking weapon!!

Interesting read in the tele today by Kenty.
Dogs have up to 16 players with back ended deals which cover the 2019 salary cap with 800k to spare.
Next year they have to sign 14 more players for under 800k. Even at min wage of 85k - that leaves them 390k over the salary cap.
How has the NRL...
Interesting watching NRL tonight and how Paul Crawley stated as fact that the first penalty on the 3rd set of the game vs Tigers was NOT an offside penalty.
He reviewed the refs overhead feed and Manly were 12 to 13m back and did not jump the gun. Penalty was BS. Called by the pocket ref...

Corruption and collusion...
Just watched the 1991 semi final between Manly and Canberra. Great game. Manly had Ian Roberts, Des Hasler and Geoff Toovey out injured.
Cliff Lyons had an unbelievable game, killed Laurie Daly and head and shoulders above anyone else on the field. There was one ball movement in the 2nd half...
Jake Trbojevic facing an extended stint on the sideline with a pectoral injury out of the England test match.
Walker, now Jake injured while playing for Australia
I liked it better when Manly had no rep players.
When are we announcing all those signings? We need them.
Manly have the most potent right side attack in the NRL
Why did DCE or Green not pass the ball to Walker in this semi final?
Walker is a gun and Uate can steam roll close to the line.
Instead, time and time again we went to the left to Kelly and the NRL's slowest winger Wright...
Bring them back for the last 5 weeks and semis.@:cool:
After all, we are paying for them in the salary cap.
Matai in for can't jump, can't catch Kelly
Stewart in for Wright. Tom T can stay fullback for attack. Stewart, fullback in D. He can teach Tom T a thing or 20 in positional play as a...
I have been through the first 9 rounds and Manly has
Lost 7 penalty counts
Won one against the Dogs
Had a draw against Melb
Does Manly have a discipline problem?
Do the refs have a problem with Manly?
This is an area we do need to improve, as it is no coincidence that Melb and Broncos are the...
The Sea Eagles have lost eight games straight twice — in 1950 and 1998-99.
Facing the North Queensland Cowboys this week we have lost 7 in a row. The last 5 last year and first two this year.
We are no chance to beat the cowgirls so we will equal our worst ever losing streak of 8.
