Has the club confirmed who will be departing the club this year?
Bellamies and other big name coaches have looked ordinary when star players were not available
Personally I'd give him a 7 based on his performance with the cattle available and look forward to the 2024 feeling confident of a very competitive year.
Yep. Look at the forwards that played last night, and then compare it with our pack......it's really night and day.Just an opinion..,.
If Ivan Cleary coached Manly this year, I think we end up running in a similar position regardless. Penrith are just in a sweet spot with their roster. They've got the best 7 in the game (the most important position) and a host of great athletes across the park. When Cleary was at the Tigers, they came 9th because as good a coach as Ivan is, that Tigers squad has deficiencies much like Manly do at present. Tom never really got going and then missed the back half of year. We had a massive injury crisis in an already average pack of forwards.
If we can stay injury free, I think our roster can make the 8 next year. I don't think we have the forwards to challenge for a premiership. Our coach is not our biggest problem moving forward.
I reckon the Penrith fitness is the collective variable fitness of each individual. They have a roster that’s high on lean muscle and fast twitch so they’re quick across the ground and don’t gas…we probably train just as hard but some of our guys are heavy with small engines. I could be wrong but yeah I just reckon each club trains it’s guts out but there’s more to it…no two individuals share an identical physiology and thus will not attain the same fitness levels with the same amount of exertionYep. Look at the forwards that played last night, and then compare it with our pack......it's really night and day.
We really need ours to be injury free, and play at their very best, to make it to the finals.
And the squad as a whole needs whatever fitness regime the panthers are on......they somehow find another gear when they need to.
Never a truer word was spoken. At least not since the last time it was spoken. Or written. Or typed.It's not Siebold's fault. It's Penns. He keep hiring flakes to replace Manly greats... Penn has brought nothing but mediocrity to this once proud club.
Put it down to Donaghy and Ikin who put the right people around Walters and cut out the old boys that weren't adding valueGeez Walters has turned that club around makes Seibold look pathetic
