    Ok so I was told this yesterday, weather it's true or not is another thing...

    A mate I used to work with who is a dogs supporter, I call him up to stir him up and he tells me his daughter is friends with a NRL touch judge who is doing the game tonight, he tells me the touchie told his daughter that the dogs won't be getting away with what they have all year tonight and that Manly will win....

    Take what you will of that, I thought I'd pass it on....

    Manly will win, yes. But it will have little to do with the refs, and more to do with their own abilities to play as a champion side.

    Touchie should be incarcerated for even talking to an associate of a dogs supporter.

    If he said that, you shouldn't post it publically. Officials are there to call what they see, not try to influence or make predictions.

    I believe you were told this but doubt 100% any NRL official would intentionally favour a team or predict a winner. We have been on the wrong end of numerous clangers & often copped the rough end of the pineapple, its not personal & who knows - we might get some good calls in the finals - just not intentionally.

    I find it absurd that any referee would intentionally favor Manly. Because we're Manly.

    You must be a dishlickers fan setting up excuses for tonights belting.

    it could easily be taken that the refs are aware of dogs 2nd man ploy and obstructions.

    And that he thinks Manly will win today.

    It's only by the way it was written that it makes the TJ look a bit sketchy

      Screw that. Manly will win through form, class and ability. Give the Dogs the refs like most teams have had against us most times this year, and I still call win.

        Well said Mal!

        Personally I think we will win and win easy, Manly 13+ and at $4.75 I might put some coin on that!

          I think dogs not only lick dishes but also smell bums don't they?

            Come on pal. I've seen the toilet paper add. They do sniff bums.
            (A little golden labrador advertising toilet paper.)

            In fact it was so bad there was a request it be removed from the TV.

            For anyone to suggest I am a dogs fan is ridiculous!
