Overall: Not to worry. This is just a good hitup, you could never have expected Manly to win on a 5 day backup. A decent performance under the circumstances and a chance to get Cuthbertson some fitness, L'Estrange, Hall, Bryant and Co. some fitness as well. Will only do us good in the long run. I'd rather we get easily beaten and not exert too much than get hurt than bust our guts and lose by two points and then lose the next two weeks.. I don't think this game will do Manly any harm. The Negatives: The referee: DISGRACEFUL - you saw it, no need to comment further. Archer makes me sick. He is the worst referee in Manly games and is a bona-fide idiot. Matt Orford: C'mon everyone, how much evidence do we need?. This guy is an ordinary footballer. Solid but unremarkable. The reality is, if Manly want to make the next step [win a grand final] get rid of this guy. He's predictable, limited, and boring. I wish he wasn't here. We have such a great footy team capable of top notch defense and some decent backs. This guy is our archilles heel. And if I see his [un]inspring tale in the papers again I'm going to do a ritual burning outside of Brookvale. The halves: What do we do?. Any suggestions?. This aint working. The Postives: L'Estrange: Very impressive!. Great speed from dummy half!. This is the guy to take over from Ballin who is ordinary. Do it now. Greg Hall: This fellow needs a suntan, but what a great footy player. I was also delighted with Cuthbo who just took on the line and held the ball this week, and Bryant was great too. Jason King: Great game! NYEagle P.S: Billy Slater is off the charts. He'll get the Aussie jumper. I hope they put in Stewart as a utillity, but I doubt that will happen.
