My thought's on that game 1st of all, I have to get this off my chest. Glenn Hall. I was very shocked on a few fronts with the bloke. 1st of all was his efforts before the game in the change room on National Television, where he had pulled his pants and underdacks to the side, and was picking what appeared to be hair from his testicles !!! LoL...Besides that - oh - my - god. What a player !!!! Fast, mobile, strong. I have to say, I'm very impressed. Jamie Lyon is all class. We already knew it. He didn't even have to confirm it. But he's a gun. Enough said on this front. We have all pretty well been concerned over King, Stewart and Willow. All had great games, and I hope they can keep up this consistency. Stewart was a stand out with great line breaks, and an ability to offload to our centres. I think tonight showed Monaghan can be an 80 minute Hooker, with Willow on the bench in case Monnas gets injured. With Matai gorn for a while, Burns should be a definite starter, with Lyon in the centres. Burns is a gun, and has carried his form on from last year. That's saying a lot because there are a heck of a lot of players that have a 2nd year syndrome, and while Burns played a snipet in 2005, I consider this his real 2nd year. Manly now have the ability to create try's from anywhere. Stewart, Willow, Hall, Bryant and Rose all created 2nd phase play. The forwards as a whole were excellent, and dominated The Canberra pack. That's saying a lot considerring Kite had a very quiet game. If Matai is out next week, I'd have all faith in including Hall again on the bench. I'd almost go with:- 01. Brett Stewart 02. Michael Robertson 03. Jamie Lyon 04. Steven Bell 05. Chris Hicks 06. Travis Burns 07. Matt Orford 08. Jason King (great game mate !!!) 09. Michael Monaghan 10. Brent Kite 11. Anthony Watmough 12. Steve Menzies 13. Glenn Stewart 14. Luke Williamson 15. George Rose 16. Mark Bryant 17. Glenn Hall In perspective though - we were playing an injury ravaged Canberra, and we will need to improve substantially to trouble the good sides. That said, it was shocking conditions, and I thought we did well regardless. If we played Melbourne tonight, I think we may have still scratched a win. In signing off - I have to say - the light situation at Brooky was disgraceful...I know it can't be helped...but perception would be that it was quite unproffesional. Lets get an upgrade of facilities eh !!! Come on David Barr - get the pen moving....or we will see a labor govt. dominate the local elections. Have to say - I'm happt overall. There's still a long way to go, but the signs are there for a decent season. It looked as though Beaver, Watmough, Orford, Stewart should all be ok for next week.....Matai - not so good.
