What I find amusing is how 100% correct Matas and CW were on this one. But very funny looking back

Manly played them into form in that night game half way through last year.

Don't remind me of that nightmare. I went to Leichhardt and can still remember the touch footy for the first 20 mins and 18 -16 and then they started to play tackle.

At that point in time the Tigers pack were indeed ****. Even Harris rolled over the top of them.

Steppa made their backs look pedestrian.

Mind you - go back and look at the comments we made after the Gosford Roosters trial. Just as funny considering what has happened since.

My main recollections were:

1. Ballin and Cuthbertson should see a lot of first grade. I still hold to that.

2. Matai is a liability in defence (as I so bluntly stated much to your horror). This opinion has not changed either.

they came storming into the finals last year and knocked off some big name sides. dont think there was any luck involved but I guess you could say they had limited injuries coming home.

they finished outside the top 4!

all were rated as a lot of upsets!
They hardly won off the weight of their powerhouse forwards. They werent the benchmark last season matas was right

Parra much more abenchmark especially when forwards were concerned
