The AE boys were out in force at Fortress Brookie this Sunday and appearances from Matabele, Flipper and Theresa added greatly to the great win that the Sea Eagles ground out in the last 20 mins. The Fluffy factor did the trick again and a Saturday night out, Brekky at the club, with all three grades scoring many points in front of the JM stand all proved fabulous. It is no coincidence that the miraculous comebacks in both Flegg and 1st Grade saw all the tries scored in front of us.

Credit to Mata and Danny for trying to rev up the crowd (who were totally silent) when we were in the depths of despair at 6- 26 and the fair-weather supporters headed for the gates!!

More reports on this great weekend to come! Flipper and Matabele have undefeated records at Brookie too! Both are talking about another trip this season some time! Great to have you there lads.

It was good but the crowd did take too long to warm up.

The afternoon will go down as an absolute classic. Manly's greatest ever comeback, warm rays, great friendship mixed with the usual BS and an inspiring set of chants from the AE crew to get the boys home. It doesn't get better than that!

Important to note that the AE crowd started the chants at 26 - 6 and tried to lift the team. The totally muted crowd didn't make a peep until momentum had well and truly swung! They scored all the points at our end - AE power strikes again.

(Deluding our selves of course but it is fun to think we had a part in stirring up the dead crowd and getting the boys over the line!!)

Watmough said it was the crowd that got them going and AE did just that. Des, we need a private box to keep up the great work.

It was a great day at the footy yesterday. Our biggest comeback in our history, 10 straight wins at home and all three games one.

Watmough was amazing. 29 tackles, 2 line breaks and he made 162 metres off just 17 hit ups and 4 dummy half runs.

Witt was also outstanding, two tries and his 6 goals led to an amazing 20 point haul, in his debut year for the club. He is an awesome defender and is particularly hard to stop close to the line.

Although Monaghan was a bit scratchy in his performance he made two important line breaks, the first one was a spectacular run through the Panthers line which led to him assisting Witt in going under the posts. It was our first try and came at a crucial time. He also scored a try, similar in Witt's as he terrorized the Panthers defense on their tryline. This try was also crucial and was apart of our fightback. Monaghan stats read 86 metres off just 8 runs, 2 line breaks. He, like Witt is also a magnificient defender for a halfback.

Overall, that comeback was a great team performance. We didn't have any luck but we showed amazing determination and skill to get back into the game, they should also count themselves lucky because Simpkins was a goose. He's been copping it lately but it's all justified.
