Â I see the Panthers forwards as being a good test to assess where the Manly forwards are in relation to strength and their go forward ability. Â Tim Grant is killing it for metres gained. Pritchard has his second-phase play going, and Waterhouse is popping them as well. And of course, Luke "hard man" Lewis is...well he's just tuff! The bloke I think Manly should go after is their interchange forward Sam Mc Kendry. He would make an excellent replacement for Perry. Sure Lyon and Matai will be missed, but it won't mean S**te unless the forwards step up.
