    Annesley admits Manly should have been given a penalty in his opinion

    Or let's go crazy with this, what if Brad Parker had pushed Cameron Smith in identical circumstances?

    The one player you'd choose to come to Manly

    After this weekend's games my choice would be Api Korosau sigh

    Centres and winger - are we happy now ?

    Maybe we can put this myth to bed, but not based on stats IMO. I mean really, counting "Errors" is such a hopeless statistic. A fumbled ball deep in the opposition half, 14 points up on the scoreboard, 5th tackle play, 2 minutes on the clock. That's counts as an error. So does a fumbled grubber...

    Player Ratings - Round 19

    You're kidding, right? How many grubbers does Jorge have to mess up (sometimes for tries) before he drops to a 7/10. He's running hard, working hard and tackling like a brute, but I cower every time a grubber goes behind him. Anyone can be made to look silly by an awkward bounce but IMO Jorge...

    cliffy Lyons or Thurston?

    One thing that Thurston is just amazing for is driving a bunch of respectable/average first graders to perform above where their abilities apparently lie. Seeing him live the first time was a revelation. He played his own team (and even partly the opposition) like chess pieces. He uses each...

    Favourite player that never played for us.

    I guess he's trotted out as a bit of a laughing stock these days at SOO time, but I liked watching Raudonikis when he was playing for Wests. Super competitive, was fabulous at driving a team of players to play better than most people thought possible. Not the most talented half of all time by a...

    Thoughts on Other NRL Teams

    With other teams I find that I'm ok with them one season and hate them the next. Just depends who's playing with the team. Adding a d*ckhead to a team I was ok with will usually see them moved to my hate list. Having said which I can't stand Soward, but I really like how Penrith are going...

    Judging Players on Yardage

    Good points, and I feel exactly the same about cricket stats - is a great batsman one who can nudge and deflect for 2 days on a flat track for a double hundred for no result, or one who digs in on a lively "away" pitch for two days to save the game and be not out on 50 or 60? [hr] Agreed, it...

    Judging Players on Yardage

    I see people quoting player's yardage figures all the time when judging their performance. Can anyone tell me whether yardage figures are adjusted for the following: 1. How long the player is on the field? 2. How long the team had possession? 3. Whether a player's meters gained were easy...

    Brett

    +1 I think it's only now that it is really truly sinking in with some of us what a loss Joe was. Straight, hard, bent the line on every carry.

    Dugan suspension

    I can't recall who said it, but someone said that they are messing with the very fabric of the game, and it's dangerous stuff. The way they are going they won't be satisfied until they've turned it into touch footy

    "Studs up grub": Slater mega thread

    But you're all forgetting - "It's not his 'go' to do stuff like that" (hiding)

    On another note, Matt Ballin

    Well I may be wrong but I don't recall anyone criticizing MB when our forwards were actually running toward the opposition tryline instead of parallel with it like now. I think it is very easy to criticize halves and dummy halves when forwards aren't going forward, they are always the ones...

    Where to from here?

    Agree about the effort / execution comments. But the score line I think is very flattering to us unfortunately :( The close score is because we had the ball for most of the first half (and did pretty much nothing with it), and the few times they had the ball they scored, including the...

    Lessons Learnt ?

    Agree with all the comments about our attack, but sheesh have you ever seen a softer try than Friend's? I felt sick watching it.

    Where to from here?

    Enough possession in the first half to win 3 games. Letting in the softest try of the season (Friend's), and generally a lot of good players playing badly. If I was a young guy busting my @ss in a lower grade I would be very discouraged to see Gift still in the side. It sends a terrible cultural...

    Matai Charged

    I believe Skiv's charge will be "using a head to the elbow of an opposing player"

    I agree. Choc is awesome, but those passes as he hits the line ..... he's gonna put one of his receivers in hospital. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
