It could be said that Manly have had some good fortune in the season so far: Warriors: We played the Warriors at home with a full squad - before they got going (still haven't) Sharks: Played without Kimmorley and two other key forwards. Melbourne and Canberra: We covered the loss of Terry with Matai who surprised. Bye at a good time Played Brisbane and Saints with them minus a few stars Souths: They had injury issues. Wests: The only game where we were worse off with Rep and other injuries. Dogs: They have a weakened squad. Overall good home form and a bit of luck (up until last week) has allowed us to get on a good roll. We have made the most of our luck and deserve to be where we are. Time to stand up in the next three weeks now though!
