    HE stands in the shadows at Brookvale but is the man consigned to halting the giant South Sydney forward pack.

    Sea Eagles forwards coach Brad Arthur was on Tuesday identified as the man who put the steel into Manly’s forwards this season.

    Manly prop Brent Kite claimed Arthur - the former interim Parramatta coach - has the Sea Eagles pack "firing".

    Arthur is being considered for the vacant North Queensland coaching position.

    “He has us forwards firing. Like a lot of good coaches, his best stuff is behind-the-scenes working with individuals," Kite said.

    “Brad is a bit old-school. He has a belief what the forwards can bring to a game and that is something we all like.

    “We may be a bit smaller (than Souths pack) but we have had a pretty good year.

    “We have had Brad specialising with the forwards this year. That has made a massive difference.

    “He is our forwards coach so will we do lot of our stuff with him. Skills at the start of the session, video sessions where we focus on ourselves."

    Manly’s forwards will to be at their very best to contain the rampaging Souths pack, led by the Burgess brothers.

    “Brad has come into a new club and I have to commend him on what he has done," Kite said.

    “He has the respect of the guys. Not ranting and raving but just having integrity and following through what he says he is going to do.

    “He also keeps us to account. I also like his humility. You never see him talk over the head coach."

    Once again Parra didn't realise what they had till they lost him. I hope we can hang onto him but he does deserve his own team.

    Yes, one only has to look at the steely Eels defence of 2011-12 to see why he deserves all the credit for our forward defence.


    He is a good coach though, which is why Tooves hired him. The Cows could do worse.

    Hope he does a few sessions with the backs as well :idea:

    It would be great to see Wolfie take down Flipper GI, like he did the Beast :angel:
