    LEADING into 2017 few would have predicted Manly would be favoured to advance to the second week of finals.
    There were too many question marks. They lingered over their head coach, their star halfback and a recruitment drive littered with gambles on talented players horribly out of form.

    Not to mention the clouds over the health of club legends Brett Stewart and Steve Matai, who we now know would never take the field, leaving the Sea Eagles short of well over $1 million worth of talent

        Ferris copped a hammering here when he first arrived!

          No one liked poor Ferris. Haha Especially Ryan. Whilst prep is very important i still think lack of injuries or an increase in injuries is 80% luck.

          I also remember all the criticism on here when it came out DCE won the 2km race and that our wingers should have won it so they are obviously sh!t. I really wonder if people think before they type sometimes.

            Although in saying we only lost 2 games to muscle tears and strains - isn't that what kept Siro out for 10 weeks?!

              6:30 for 2km is a pretty decent time, especially for a bloke who is muscular rather than lean like a runner.

                they mean tears resulting from sprint load

                  Siro's injury was due to contact & not a strain or tear as such!

                    Well, to be fair- Ferris was part of an article claiming you could judge his success (and this was claimed by him) by the longetivity of Lyon, Matai & Stewart (who all retired that very season !!). I've posted the article a few times. You then look at The Titans success (when he was there), and where we ended up last season, and there were many variable parallels between the two clubs.

                    https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nr...s/news-story/6f3ecac1a3631bbea7cff1d34ac0d808

                    There have been a few times Garts, that I've thought our team has looked gassed (even this season), where we fade in & out of games.

                    That said, kudos to all the coaching staff (including Ferris). The team have been amazing overall this season. Most teams (apart from the bloody Slimy Storm) have peaks and troughs in a season. There are times I think our team is unbeatable (both Chooks games), then there are times (Tigers & Dragons) where I think jeez, our boys look cooked.

                    Pretty sure Ferris took the reigns on the Gold Coast in 2011 (after being in their junior system since 2007), then joined us in 2015. That's 7 years in the top grade as a Head Conditioner. In this 7 years, this is his 1st ever finals series, with his teams finishing 16th, 12th, 9th, 14th, 14th, 13th & 6th.

                    I'd say there is enough quantified information for someone to make a hypothesis about his current & past record. I also think everyone, including myself made an obvious distinction between injury & fitness. Ferris can't generally control injury. It's the fitness that was the area of concern.

                      Great work from the off field team.
                      I'd still add Donny though just because.

                        If they're saying he "blitzed" it then I'd assume the rest of the players weren't close which is disappointing. You'd expect some of the backs to be thereabouts as it's only 2k's. I ran a 5:00 mile on minimal prep at 38 and I'm only a couple of kegs lighter than DCE.

                            Players who get injured in warm ups and at training are the result of poor physio's / trainers who don't know what they are doing.
                            Very encouraging article to read.

                            Hello Fate, we've just run a story about how injury free we've been all year just before the semis.
                            What do you think, tempted?

                                Maybe you should read the thread again. He was an integral part of our winning premiership side of 2008 and 2011. Donny laid the foundation.

                                Donny was a big part of our golden run but he did not lay a foundation, all he did was an excellent job on behalf of the team but truth of the matter is any body in donnys position in that golden run would have had the same sucess.

                                  @Turbo1, Mate reason I said he laid the foundation is that from memory I think he was there from 2003. Everyone associated from that time on, players and coaching staff did lay the foundation of a winning culture after the disaster of the Northern Eagles. Something special is happening with this current side. It might not be this year but I sense another premiership within the next two years.
