    My favourite moment last year came during the Perth match against the Warriors - our grand final opponents from the previous year, who were desperate for a win. We had forfeited the Brookie home advantage, were coming off 2 losses, and were training 0-18 just 10 seconds before half-time.

    On his own 10m line, Foran put through a perfect kick for Tafua. Jorge got it. He did not swerve. He did not fend. He just ran. Tupou and Locke both had him in range but weren't strong enough to knock him off balance. That try got us back in the match, which of course we went on to win, and set us up for a strong finish to the competition.

    Makes me laugh every time I watch a replay of it!

      Mine was the length of the field try at Suncorp, with Wolfie, torn hamstring and all, scoring the winning try :)

      So many Players handled the ball, so many Broncos supporters were booing, so few of us to counteract all the negative energy - barely no voice left to chant Manly, Manly !:D

      The elation was unsurpassed even by the Perth win.

      Lots of great moments on the field, as per usual, in 2012 but I particularly enjoyed the victory song after the Anzac Rnd win against the Dogs. Probably because the way Snake spoke and the atmosphere in the dressing room indicated to me that Hasler was not going to be able to take our best players over to the dark side.

      Oh yeah. How could I forget that. At their home ground too. Reminded me off Oldfield's try after the bell at Shark Park.

      Off field - Fozzy signing with the best team in the world after being strongly pursued by the enemy.

      On field - Suncorp win over Broncs. I seriously did loungeroom acrobatics.

      Coach moment - Tooves throwing the water bottle after the Suncorp victory.

      Special mention - team spirit in the dressing room after defeating the pups in their own pound. Be Manly, don't be a dog!

      I've probably overused my quota. My bad.

      The Hand of Foz. Good to see us get a decision for a change. Pissing off the Cowgirls was a bonus.

      Sitting on the hill with mates, watching a dude in full Bulldogs gear and flag walk around the ground at a Manly Vs Titans I think game it was, as the friendly taunts, jibes, and (friendly - hehehehe) projectiles were hurled his way :)

        So many memorable moments from last year for the Manly fans but for me when the hooter went at the 80th minute of the 2012 Grand Final and the Dogs had lost it I just thought - thank christ for that - massive relief to the NRL as a whole.

        There was no way I wanted Des to win that.

        GF'12-True. I laughed at how frustrated Barba was getting with being pinned downtown by Cronk's kicks.

        Yeah, I can't go past the Wolfman scoring that winning try against Brisbane. I've watched those last few minutes many times and everything from the smirk on their coaches face to the crowd booing and laughing when Choc went off injured.....Next minute.

        Not only that, but the Bulldogs got done by the Titans there on the same night as well.

        I'm with you Tooks. Dogs NOT winning the GF is definitely up there.
        Both the Warriors and Broncs wins were against the odds and great to watch.

        I'd say our first half at Brookie against the Nots ranks up there.

        But I agree with the other contributions.

        Was so relieved to beat the Dogs in Rd 8.
        Watching them lose the GF and the ensuing suspension of Graham.
