The Tigpies aren't as bad as their ladder position suggests. And they did lead us 16-8 at one stage last time out so I wouldn't be taking today as a sure thing.

I think we can win and win comfortably, but this side can be dangerous if they get on a roll.

Manly by 20.

Should win today Only thing is Tigers have nothing to loose and will do plenty of offloads which seems to worry us the offloads and running up the middle seems to hurts us as the team starts to get on the back foot when defending .So hopefully the offloads go to ground and we capitalise and run out convincing winners
GO Manly
Good point. Off loads really disrupt manlys defensive line. Start missing and leaving gapping holes up the middle. Control the off loads and be committed in defence and with a smart kicking game should control the game and have enough points in us. Hope the ref doesn't get two carried away. Doesn't suit our style.

I would be MORE than dissapointed if we lost today through " complacency ", they have no reason to just think they are going to win, this is going to take a concerted effort!

Come on boys I know you can do it.

The team appears to struggle wrapping up players in defence not sure what the stats are but wondering how many teams get more offloads against us compared to other teams

Wish the boys all the best today, no complacency and they need to focus on completing sets and getting as much possession as possible.

Have a great afternoon fellow Silvertails....!!

Go the Mighty Manly Sea Eagles......!!

Go Manly! Expecting a focussed 80 mins today spearheaded by our forwards. Backs to run rampant after a closely fought first 20 mins.
