Hey haven't posted for a while but check in every now and then to see what's happening. A few things I would like to put up for discussion. Firstly manly look tired. They played busted and without stars for long periods this year and despite the lack of origin reps we still played games without our star halfback and had a very good forward missing through representation and suspension. Even rothfool commented on the crappy draw we got from nine after they picked and chose the last six weeks. Secondly our front rowers need some rest/help it doesn't mean they are soft just buggered. A big game will get them up again but they can't be expected to continue unphased when Lui Horo Gift have been missing for long periods and we stack back/front rowers on the bench (and sorry people as much as I love him Rose is not the answer). Also our wingers have been disrupted. This hasn't helped getting out of trouble or finishing. If watmough and snake want to go ( and I am not saying they do) then they should. You can't have two second rowers taking up twenty five percent of your cap unless they are burgess and SBW. Unfortunately gift and choc whilst still super players and club legends are it at that level. I would be sad but happy if Steve Matai left for a big pay check at the warriors next year. He will be missed but hiku needs to be groomed and make way for Gutherson and the turbo Cessna so those two aren't swiped. I wish Lussick had stuck around in our system and T Wrecks had left before he destroyed our 2013 campaign. Lama Tasi would be a rep player now too under us. This is the most controversial and it hurts to write because if I weigh the both up I like Foz more. But if keeping DCE means we lose Foz then that's what has to happen. In a perfect world we keep them both because snake Matai gift choc and killer come into retirement and we support them with a good front rower and the youngsters coming through. Roosters and cowboys are a worry. Rabbits showed they aren't up to it if not allowed to wrestle and those big boppers get tired. We are in this up to our necks stop fighting and guessing at the motivations of the players. Stop wishing we could keep everyon who has played for us it just doesn't wod like that. GO MANLY!!!!!!!!!
