Very concerned with spine, worst in the NRL
I disagree.
Our spine of Tom Turbo, Dylan Walker, Cherry, and Fainu are the reason we were touted as premiership dark horses.
(If your're referring to our depth players, well yeah they are battling)

Pretty bad day when you play St George into form. We were dreadful, but can bounce back if the hunger is in the squad.

Are you saying our spine of DCE, Walker, Fainu and Turbo is the worst in the NRL ?
I guess they are considering only 1 is actually on the field is playing
To expect the depth players to be as good as our 1st starters, or other teams 1st choice spine that would make us the Roosters !

Major fallout I hear particularly with the senior playing group copping it.A few unhappy campers. Change is afoot if things don’t get better real soon. Plenty on notice.
Deservedly so !! The senior players are not earning their pay cheque’s!!

Expect more in a depleted team from the likes of DCE, Jake, Marty, Thomo, Siro, Moses. These are representative players!!

I think Croker, Taufua and Paseka have done little to justify their selection. They are not solely responsible for the teams misfortune, but they are not bringing anything to the table either

who do you think should/shouldn’t be dropped?
Dropped Elliot for Hoppa.
Dropped Parker for Schuster.
Dropped Jorge for Funa.
Benched Tomo for Guacamole.
Dropped out of the 21 man squad JetSki.

The current depth players. Of course if the other 3 are there, last Sunday does not happen and Manly are hovering around Top 4

An observation - when the team ran onto the field at the start of both halves, that our multi-million $ players in the stand didn't clap or cheer them on. Some were on their phones and oblivious to what was going on. I expected them to at least clap or give them some sort of encouragement. Did anybody else notice or was it just me?

Would not read too much into that , all of that group always seem to have a pretty carefree attitude off the playing field [ probably too carefree for a couple of them which i hope is a thing of the past now ] On the field they have been among our best and most consistent players and would be making a big difference naturally if they were playing right now and disharmony intentions seems the least of their general outlook .
