    Media Agendas

    I came across this Twitter Fox Nrl headline with the below comments attached to Des and his criticism of the refs: "Yawn." Des Hasler takes aim at referees for thwarting Sea Eagles comeback against Eels. Yawn?? WTF. I could be wrong but last night was the first time I can think of that...

    Attacking shapes

    Seems the last few weeks the opposition have really set about shutting down our long set block plays. It seems so obvious when watching (arm chair expert) from home that 1 of the opposition is about to rush Turbo/Chez/Walker but we still insist on running the play often resulting in losing...

    How many more games to make the finals?

    Interested to know how many games we have to win to be assured a finals spot? Worst case scenario is getting though on p/d.

    Magic Round

    Anyone going to Magic Round? I’ll be there behind the goal posts (mate left the ordering of tickets too late and that’s all that was left). Any other Silvertailians in Brissy this weekend?

    Rumour mill

    Just heard a pretty serious rumour about a current NRL player who's club has had to cover up for him due to his off field behaviour. Some within the media are aware of it also. If true, the player will be gone for months (strike 2 drugs). If the club is proven to have attempted to cover it...

    2019 Captaincy

    Interested to hear others thoughts on captaincy in 2019? Personally I'd go co-captains with Jurbo. His passion is 2nd to none and I think that's what we lacked in 2018.

    Involved in the Sharks cap drama?... This could be very very very very bad if he is proven to have known about the cap issues... I hope not.

    Extra $350k before June 30

    https://www.zerotackle.com/manly-hoping-to-unearth-fainu-34224/ This came out of the same article... Apologies if it's already been brought up. This comes after the The Australian Rugby League Commission formalised a plan earlier this month that provides clubs to spend $350,000 outside of...

    Future back 5

    Was just contemplating what Bazs vision is with our future backline... 1) Turbo - locked in. 2) Suli - just upgraded (Tafua won't be around much longer) 3) Walker - locked in . 4) Wright - Baz has stated he wants Wright at centre. 5) Kelly - Does Wright at centre push Kelly to the wing...

    Which half should we target?...

    With DCE clearly showing that he is struggling without an organising half to take the game management responsibilities away from him, who do people think we should target? Hodkinson is a stop gap depth half for next year. That's great. We need him. He will add alot to our club. Moving forward...

    Broncos Burgers

    This may have already been mentioned and if it has delete the thread but has anyone else heard how Broncos players each get $20 free Macca's per day in Brissy? Beau mentioned it on the footy show and I've heard it before. $20 X 30 players is $600 per day. $600 per day for a year is just under...

    Haslers Case

    Recently reported that Des Haslers legal team has subpoenaed sensitive information from rival clubs to help in his $3mill court case.... Why would Des need info from rival clubs? I can only assume it's to prove that he didnt deserve to be sacked because he wasn't the cause of the issues at the...

    Lyall Gorman interview...

    A good 15min interview of Lyall on Inside the NRL which can be watched on the Nrl website. Some notable comments were that there will be a couple of player announcements in the new few weeks. Sounded like they wouldn't be developmental as they can't bring in kids if they're not ready. Said...

    Hastings to 6....?

    Is it time....? Croker to 14.... I know it's only round 3. I know Croker wasn't the cause for the loss... But from what I'm seeing, Hastings may be the answer to the organisation that we are lacking. He seems to me to have completely embraced the organising/mature role that I thought he lacked...

    Areas for improvement...

    Some key areas I think the guys need to work on to take us to the next level: - Defusing last play kicks. - Lapses in defence. - Forcing passes when we have all the momentum. What are some others so when Baz reads Silvertails tonight he'll know what to do at training tomorrow?...

    So Fox are reporting that Maloney said in a press conference he was waiting on the Panthers to sort through a TPA for him....why hasn't this been pounced upon by the NRL. The Panthers have clearly broken the TPA rules. The NRL is apparently going to knock it back but surely this would warrant...

    Theres a slight list of suggestions from Mole on Twitter that we have gone cold on Pearce by implying Pearce's options are Sharks, Roosters or Newcastle. And also we cooled on Thompson because "Manly chasing bigger fish" and are going after "one of the halves about to come onto the market"...

    Other crucial games...

    Obviously winning on the weekend will go a long way to securing a finals birth for us for the first time in 3 years. Although its not a popular sentiment with everyone, I am happy to make up the numbers and have a feeling that if we can just make it - the shackles/pressure will come off this...

    I have to admit, at the start of the season I had Manly tipped finishing somewhere between 5-12th. Don't think I recall many people predicting higher than this range but do recall a lot saying it could be lower. Some added pressure this year. - 23 man squad. No other club was limited to this at...
