The Homebush Hares played OK today against the Dragons. I'm sure they'll fire up for the Manly game. I have horrible memories of last years corresponding clash at Aussie Stadium when the Rabbitohs gave us a touch up. We were in a corporate boc on the 1/2 way line & all I recall is Ray Martin ( in another corporate box ) waving his scarf around for most of the match. "ugly scenes".
Will Steven Bell be back for this match ?
Also heard today on 2GB that Gower (Panthers) will be out for 4 weeks & Tim Smith ( Eels ) out for up to 8 weeks with injuries. 2 of our next 3 opponents.
It's imperative that Manly win their next 3 games ( Souths , Penrith , Parra ) . These 3 victories followed by the BYE will have us well placed for the Finals Series.
