What a game !!!!!!
We were fortunate enough to be sitting in the Members Stand directly in front of the Manly dressing room. Great atmosphere in the Members Stand. When the players came off the field at 1/2 time , you could sense that this game was going down to the wire.
From 16-0 down with 5 mins to go in the 1st half , to come back to 16-12 down was a telling factor in the end result.
Great atmosphere throughout the ground , well done to those Manly supporters out in the concourse area. The feeling in the Members Area at full time when the Manly players came up the tunnel was unbelievable , the joy & relief from the players faces (close up) was unforgettable. We stayed in the Members Bar for 2 hours afterwards & saw the players leaving the adjoining dressing rooms to raptous applause.
In summary , a very enjoyable day/night at the S.C.G & to return home & flick on the news to hear that the 2 miners in Tasmania have been found alive & well just caps things off nicely.
Already looking forward to the trip out to Leichhardt Oval next Sunday. Myself & friends always look forward to this day out . Leichhardt Oval is a great football ground (not unlike Brooky Oval). As with previous years tradition , we'll be adjourning at The Orange Grove Hotel at 1pm for pre match drinks & then afterwards for post match drinks.
Hope to see plenty of Manly fans out there .
" Go you mighty EAGLES " !!!!!!
