My expectations for this year dropped substantially when we lost Api/Fainu.
I think a lot of people underestimate the impact that has had, along with Turbo.. thats where all our attack came from last year..
-Storm have beat up most teams this year.
-I think any win against a full strength roosters team is a good win
-yes we were robbed against a red hot parra team, no shame in that
-yes ordinary against Broncs, but still found a way to win
Not sure what you are getting at. Anyhow im as gutted as...
Believe me those players in those positions dont instill any real confidence in me either.
But lets rewind a bit, up until Turbo got injured (again) we were actually doing ok, and still seen as a premiership threat by many.
We are obviously all speculating here - ill add my bit of speculation, Albert had already agreed/signed with the dogs weeks ago, and based on that info Des/Manly decided to loan him out as a 'punishment'.
So was just revealed in a press conference today acting NRL CEO Andrew Abdo is a Manly supporter.
Apparently when he first moved to OZ he lived in the northern beaches and that's where it all started..

Im sure its been said already but anyway..
Lets be realistic here - this country was never in a full lockdown, so its not as if the NRL is taking these players out of the safety of their homes and exposing them to a high risk environment. I can guarantee you most/all of these players still get...
Yep worst thing is how they control kickoff times.. especially with Origin.
I dont know any other supposed professional sporting league around the world that delays a 'scheduled' kickoff time up to half an hour, well just cause it feels like it..
Think i heard they were doing to reduce fatigue as theres a possibility they might need to play midweek games too? Cant see it happening. Whats everyone's thoughts on NRL playing 2 games a week if needing to catchup, like the good old days. Again cant see it happening.. With a big enough roster...
First time seeing Schuster 'live', definitely has all the skills - a genuine ball player you don't see much of nowadays. Hopefully Des encourages him to play his natural game if/when he makes the top grade. I must admit i thought he was a bit of a bigger body (thats what it looks like when...
Yeah no issues with Kayo. Also if your a Telstra customer can get a deal for $15/month (saving of $120 over the year). Also applies to existing users, just cancel and reactivate.

Thank me later..
From what ive seen of him, he's more of an attacking player then Ballin, and speed isnt an issue for him (as also evidenced by youtube clip earlier in the thread).
Whats probably let him down till now is ability to stay in the game mentally for the duration of time on the field, and making the...
