BIFFS HALF TIME REPORT!

Funa - love him runs hard defends well and backs up for an offload.

Slowfua - meh

Parker - same needs to go

harper - very good debut nice try and good defence so far. Tall and strong!

hoppa - some solid runs so far

The Schu - why did we wait so long

Dce - great involvement and kicking, playing well with the schu. Bad pass at the end though. Watch him give jetski a crash ball for a try in the 2nd.

The forwards are all playing well.. levi having a decent game. Still runs at the wrong time and goes the wrong way at times. We need a better 9 (obviously)

The new left edge of waddell jetski and Parker will be heavily targeted. I have faith they will hold up and we will go on for the win... unless the ref starts to "manage" the game

We have some trouble coming in the second if the Tigers start getting their share of possession. I would love to see us start playing like a footy team again. The drop off the cliff is predictable every bl00dy game. We look decent and competitive for the start and then suddenly and inexplicably turn into a rabble.
The good news is they will be gassed late. Next to score is huge tho. Two bloody crap tryโ€™s against us really. They have nofo thatโ€™s about it.

I have no confidence in this team. We will lose this one if we donโ€™t put the pathetic **** away.

Im surprised people aren't happy. We knew we'd be leaky and a little bit unreliable with the youth in our side, but our attack has begun to be revamped for the first time in years (because we are playing with two genuine halves and a young, energetic backline).

I anticipated a lack of resolve, but I think they actually showed some promising defencive signs on our line until that late try. Taufua cheat code got activated for the Tigers' first try and outside of that i'd say its been overwhelmingly positive
Hahaha taufua cheat code. X Triangle X Square Circle

This should be an easy win but when the leader can't take control once again then we'll throw this away again.

All important who scores first if we do we will go on with it but tigers score first we will get the tips.

Don't want to rehash the same old, same old, but Cherry has to be better than that. After holding the Tigers out and finally getting the ball back, all we had to do was get trough the set and boot it downfield. Cherry, of all people, should have known that. Instead he throws a pass to no one that gifts the Tigers possession and a try. It's just so very, very stupid.

Croker comes on and defence in the middle is a mess. My god some of these blokes need to be booted so far from this club. 14 points up and we are throwing it around and offloading in our own half 10 mins before half time, what fFFFingh planet are these idiots on!!!!!!!! AAAAARGH so frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Croker is amongst the worst players I've seen play for Manly.

He can't leave soon enough.

I also don't understand Des' persistence with Jetski. Hand his jersey to Olakuatu

Perenium is already doing that. Watch for the 2nd half fiasco. We'll blow this. Tigers 36 Manly 24

Not his fault mate we had an injury to our winger. He gets a leave pass on that brain snap.

I prefer Jetski to Waddell. Jetski has a decent combo with dce and Waddell gives me anxiety every tackle he makes because he literally takes a year to get off the player and doesn't seem to have any common sense.

Nice kick DCE. See that Biff?
He has been good except for that wayward pass but hoppa and harper should of cleaned it up.. watch him set up jetski in the 2nd with a crash ball. Actually it will probably be waddell as they have moved over one. I had a feeling dce would come good in these last rounds. Thats why i have him in my supercoach matey :)

I can see a dce cutout to Jetski running a strong inside line to score
