Just a rundown on 2016 with the addition of 2017 signings. Keen to see the ratings out of 10 based on THIS years efforts from the forwards. Healthy debate is good & always like to see others point of view.... Jake T - 8/10 - Massive work rate with the best tackling technique in the game. Some doubt him as a Captain but this local junior will grow into those boots 100% Kapow - 6.5/10 - Started his Manly career a little slowly due to positional changes & adapting to longer minutes but really came good in the last 5-6 weeks - Big, powerful, massive metres - will only improve in 2017 & shown he has a top offload for WILLING support players. Lussick - 7/10 - Copped a bit early in the season, but had won the support of most Manly fans by seasons end as the Packs most intimidating player - making strong charges with the ball & his contact in defence was a highlight in a team that often lacked energy.... AFB - 6.5/10 - Only young with his best ahead, but was a handful running the ball & has some aggression which was good to see...2017 will be in rep contention imo. Myles - 3 - Decent defence, but looked flat from game 1 in all honesty...slow & predictable & did not give near the Origin style leadership Manly were hoping for.... Buhrer - 7.5/10 - No suprise after coming back from long injury - the team improved....quality player who has added steel to his game....a big fan of this bloke. Leary - 4 - Personally think this blokes a decent player but in reality, is a poor mans Buhrer - not ideal to carry too many lightweights, or be prepared to be dominated. NSW Cup Starling/Burgess/Brown - 2.5/10 - Brown the pick due to utility value but really...a massive disappointing 2016 by all...Starling has gone backwards, Burgess lives on Sam's rep & Brown not up to it. Parcell - 6/10 - Showed some spark but his injury plagued season stopped any consistency & looked a little lost at times....expected more, but maybe needed this season to adjust....also his key strength of exposing back peddling defence did not show due to a lack of urgency by our attackers to play the ball quickly in the ruck. Korisau - 5 - Some great plays spoiled by poor passing & poor options...unconventional style not helped by lack of organisation across the park - to fit in needs more organisation in the halves otherwise gets lost. Can't fault his effort - great commitment. Vave - 6/10 - Great attacking impact in many games, offloads were good also, but caught out in defence on many occasions trying to keep up with the game, especially laterally. 2017 - Lane - ? - Big lump is a top talent who will add plenty to those edges in attack & create opportunities - this should also help Walker & Tom T who will cash in once he regains confidence lost, playing in NSW Cup in a country he obviously didn't want to be in. 2017 - Meehan - ? - Absolute monster who has great potential - if he doesn't read his own press & gets serious with his attitude, has the attributes to be up with the best...has abused his natural gift with poor calls in the past - 2017 will make or break him.
