Some interesting quotes from Big League:

"It was a great crowd and we didn't give them much to cheer about in the first half, but they lifted with the boys" Menzies said.

The crowd, which initially seemed like a dissapointing 14,047, really found its voice and carried the side home.

"You need the crowd to turn up and help you with that lift. If they weren't here today, we get beat, there's no doubt about that", lock Ben Kennedy said.

Let the record show:

The Hill indeed was a morgue. There were something like 20 AE louts on the southern end of the hill that roared themselves hoarse from the 30th minute to the 55th minute, trying to lift the crowd and the team.

Just before half time we confronted the crowd for being "dead", "a bunch of sad sacks", "like a morgue" etc etc.

So bad did it get that at one stage another Manly "supporter" threatened to "beat us up", though he was more piddle and wind than substance.

Take a bow AE. It appears as though we played our part. :clap:

Good work lads. While I was around the ground taking photos. You chaps were constructing a win! :clap:

But somehow I think Monas captaincy with BK & Tezzas leadership may of had something to do with that win. ;)

Absultely, but BK did give some credit to the crowd.

And there's no doubt we were the loudest mouthed bastards there!!!

It was a game of extremes. It was deadset a library early in the second half but I don't think I've ever heard it louder than when Stewart went over.
