    For & Against: Tom Trbojevic will be Manly's best ever fullback

    If he ends up better than either Snake or Wombat then happy days for us. Both of those players were best in position during their relevant eras I posted an interesting stat in the Turbo injury thread the other day which shows how crucial Tommy currently is to this side. The full article is...

    2021 in general

    40/20 was good, but he's always been good at those. Must admit that I was a little distracted whilst watching the game but he didn't stand out to me. Just a solid enough performance without being great. No try assists (unlucky on Guaca's yes) no forced drop outs, no line break assists, no line...

    The Daly Cherrygraph

    I disagree. I think Pearce would have worked out well here to be honest. He would have been the perfect foil for DCE, good organisational half with a good consistent kicking game. Let DCE concentrate on the attack and Pearce drives the team around. I'll happily admit I was disappointed when we...

    The Daly Cherrygraph

    Just throwing it out there...but maybe you just proved we have no idea when it comes to recruiting young halves ??? at least with those other ones we limited the damage of our misjudgement to 2-3 years. :) Look we all know that you can never categorically state that we wouldn't have ended up...

    What is going on in Schusters head?

    That's not a bad comparison actually. Mateo at his best was one of the more skillful backrowers I've seen, just too much mediocre rubbish and laziness in between. Josh has that similar skill set but I think he has a more acute competitive edge and seems more engaged in his effort over the 80...

    2021 in general

    It's been a season of two halves. Before Tommy we looked woeful and genuine spoon contenders. Injuries ripped through us and it was shaping up to be a tough season, looked like a repeat of the pitiful performances we put in to end last season. Then along came the messiah Tommy and his new found...

    Turbo injury, injury, (healthy) update

    I think Tommy has got a certain angriness in his play this year since coming back. He looks more fired up then I have ever seen him on the field, like he has something big to prove. Maybe all that criticism he copped for pulling a hammy and all the talk of him being injury prone has made him...

    Players who have improved under Des

    It's funny how Tommy makes everyone in the whole organisation seem surprisingly competent all of a sudden. We looked like busteds on the back of a pathetic finish to 2020 and diabolical start to 2021, with no Tommy Turbo. There were aspects of yesterdays game that were concerning and you...

    PRE-GAME DISCUSSION: Manly v Broncos [Round 10, 2021]

    If Kapow is fit then he comes straight back in. Just a matter of whether we drop the bench warmer Suli or Saddler. I'd be inclined to flick Suli and run with the 3 forwards on the bench. Des might go back to the same set up from the last few rounds with Keppie starting on edge and Guaca coming...

    PRE-GAME DISCUSSION: Manly v Broncos [Round 10, 2021]

    Marty back hopefully, but with the short turnaround Paseka might struggle with HIA protocols. So we could be looking at the same team just a swap with Kapow and Tent. Although Siro would look better on bench than Suli, especially if he is just warming it for 80 minutes
  12. Chip and Chase

    Suli played well

    It's an interesting conundrum for Des. Suli warms the pine for 80 minutes today, does that indicate that Des won't change a winning side ? Kapow back this week you would think, does Suli drop out of 17 then ? You can't drop Harper for him I don't reckon, a try today and a try assist.

    Some upcoming Milestones

    Dominant performance from Tommy Turbo today to bring up his century of games. He was the difference between the two sides, and has been an absolute stand out this season since returning from injury. If you look at the following stats then you can see what a key part of our team he is. Since...

    MVP: Rd 9 v Warriors

    Turbo - 3, 2 and 1. You want to talk lifetime deals on the richest contract in the league, then that's what you should be getting for your money. Another dominant performance. I'm still astounded how one player can take us from a very ordinary football team to one that should now make the 8 if...

    Do we move a back to edge forward ?

    There we go, as suspected no need to try and turn an outside back into a forward just for the sake of it.
