Apart from D C E" s top all round game last night , his alertness level seemed to really stand out and this is what is really needed every time he is expected and needs to lead the team around the park well . Thought that when he recovered from that kick charge down to race back and support Elliot in the later stages in particular was really important and indicative of his serious commitment level . His 2 nd clearance kick then denied the Eels some crucial territory . Point still remains that when D C E is switched on and on the top of his game like last night always does help the side to do so much better . Of course a very valuable player for Manly but the consistency and game management factor is a valid point . Sure that there will be very few criticisms of him and as our highest paid player if his first class performance against the Eels last night can be the regular norm or close to it going forward .
