    Is it just me, or is he getting back to his blistering best. I almost am starting to think anything big can happen every time he gets the ball. Reminds me of him in 04.

    Hicks is underrated and perfect for where Manly are heading. He is thriving in bits and pieces at the moment. He has someone of quality inside him yet this team hasnt perfected its backline moves yet.

    Its coming and i think Hicks is perfect to be on the try scoring end of it when it does.

    Rumor has it he is our quickest too. Apparently Stewart is quick over the 30 - 40 but over the hundred hicks has it hands down.

    Im very impressed with him.

    On another note, just quietly im very happy to have rose to replace leuluai. If he sheds 5 - 10 kilo over the off season he will be devastating.

    For Manly his try scoring rate at centre is almost identical to the rate when he's on the wing, roughly a 1% difference in favour of the wing.

    He's overcome the hesitancy under the high ball and playing really good footie. Always carts the ball well and makes metres away from the line. Our form back.

    All our backs are in good form. Compare last years:

    1. Stewart
    2. Donald
    3. Matai
    4. Hill
    5. Hicks
    6. Witt
    7. Monaghan

    To this years:

    1. Stewart
    2. Robertson
    3. Matai
    4. Bell
    5. Hicks
    6. Burns
    7. Orford

    The halves combination is 10 times better, Bell > Hill and Robertson > Donald (I still remember his horror game against Penrith) and the other 3 who are still there have all improved on last years form (Matai especially).

    I still worry about Matai's decision making in defence. He makes good metres but gives up two tries a game through rushing in!!!

    Hicks is great and Robbo is sensational. With Wimma here next year he will show his class.

    yeh every time a play goes down matai's side he rushes up to put a big hit on and normally misses

    also i still think stewart would be quicker than hicks over the 100, wat happened to that fastest man thing they were doing on the footy show??
