ok i may be going nuts, but i thought that brisbane had so much ball that we did well to hold them to 30! they also got about 20 of those in the last 15 mins of first hald when our blokes where exhausted.

Its how brisbane got so much ball that worries me, we made more unforced errors than phillapousis on a bad day, how many times we dropped the ball cold! Poor stewey, felf for him, hes allowed one bad day, but donald and hicks ???

Whatmore and Beaver tried there guts out, but im afraid fellas, that wasnt a team with 8 rep players!

Pepsi i have to 100% agree with you,

clark gave us no chance

Watmough and beaver were fanfurekentatic in a losing side.

Both should be shoe ins for city/country


but when we are in it after 20 and clark goes and ****s all over us we cant do anything about it

Matabele at the game said that Manly looked good in defence for the first twenty but silly errors and weight of possession cost us dearly.

I think we defended alright tonight, we definitely didn't capitulate. Brisbane were just ruthless.

exhaustion would have simply set in, the guys never stopped trying especially in the seond half, but they will only learn about big matches if they play them! we get very little out of thrashing souths at brookie apart from 2 points! only gives us false levels of our abilty. If broncos had that much ball against souths they would have been 60 up at half time

Did you see that sign in the crowd - "Pretend you're at Brookie". They should have added "and pretend its daylight"
