Turns out it's a wonderful opportunity, not an exciting opportunity, eh that's pretty close :)
Seibold doesn't sound confident that either Sipley or Waddell will play, which isn't a shock of course, but highlights what a mountain for Manly's patched up team to climb.
So what's the chance of following up last week with what would surely be an even more famous win against the odds?
(actually it's $2.69 on sportsbet, I thought it might be double that)
Suspect we'll learn a lot ....

I reckon we are in for a hiding and it’s a shame because we just had a galvanising win and jumped teams to enter the 8…it’s all coming undone due to Origin and injury.
This team has struggled with consistency for years, so even if we had our best players available, there's a good chance we'd follow up a strong, gritty win with an absolute clunker of a performance. There's been a lot of banging on about the squad's improved depth, and expectations will be very low, so we may as well just enjoy watching the younger players get a shot. If they do manage a win, it'll be Manly's best fortnight in quite some time.

Wish I agreed but any team with Lawton as 7 and a middle rotation of Atasi James, Ben Condon, Navale, Sipley and Bullemor is going struggle against a team with Cody Walker, Jack Wighton, Koloamatagi, Arrow, Burgess, Moale, etc.

Yeh the potential is there for many outcomes mate, but I will be suprised if Lawton plays as advertised at 7.
I since posted again concerned about the South's halves creating havoc and the ONLY remedy to this outcome is controlling the middle which is a big ask with the outs, but I'm staying positive based on the guts of last Sunday and feel they will have some loose defence also, making it unpredictable, but I'm really looking forward to the game.

If Waddell is not fair dinkum 100% fit - put Lawton 2nd row, and bring in Humphreys. Could be the game that is the making of him (Humphreys) as a first grader.
Yeah but somewhere we need people that can tackle. The Souths pack is not small and thats a big ask of Humphries

I don't see Humphreys as much as a defensive liability as some. Our attack (if you call it that) was predictable and one-dimensional. What may Humphreys have added? We will never know - now. The game was probably there for the taking with more spark in attack. Souths were ordinary overall.

Me neither. I thought the whole point of playing halves as hookers was to toughen up their defence, and he seems to at least hold his own. I was hoping he'd get his debut, but maybe we'd hit our debut limit for one week…
