    Spoiler Alert-Some of you ain't going to like this some of you

    Manly played the brand of footy that is manly!!!! Well almost... But who cares 2 weeks of negative nancies (mainly me) need to see the positives. Here are the positives for me:

    -How good are those Stewart boys! Oh wait I mean Trbojevic bros they are our future along with walker, Parcell, DCE and Taupau.

    -Snakes return was everything for us he made us look like the side we are meant to be

    -Lyon started poorly but slowly turned it around

    -Walker starting to work out his roll and look good also leave him at 5/8 I see

    -Cherry still looks a out of from IMO! Jokes he looks like he is enjoying having more ball players around him like snake and Mateo

    -Parcell needs to stay hooker played awesome he was our rock he was so consistent through that match and scored a great try

    -Symonds was awesome and Mateo was awesome as well how lucky are we to have him on the bench

    -Vave and Lawrence provided great impact off the bench

    And here are the negatives, pretty hard to find really bad ones just little tweaks:

    -Starling looked a little soft but nothing to bad, he was solid

    -Taupaus brain snap is set to cost us he was one of our best he will probably miss 1-3 games

    -Lyon and Matai look a little old no offence but they were still good in the end they are just making those little mistakes

    -Cherry is still making to many tackles for a half but he didn't miss one

    I reckon we played very well and the defence was great

    Here's some talking points for you to think about:

    -Snake was playing 5/8 in attack and walker at fullback I really like that move by baz

    -Mateo should be re signed he is just what we need off the bench

    -And re sign symonds he has a great combo with DCE

    -Who drops out for Buhrer maybe brown? Or starling

    -Here's a real taking point Tafuas defence was Matai like when he moved in but he struggles at wing defence and under the high ball, he should be switched centre he is a great defender when he is close to the infield action, and is a meter eater. When Lyon or Matai retires we should move him to centre.

    There's my wrap by the way if there was a "told you so" icon I'd encourage use of it on this post coz DCE showed a lot more than I gave him credit for he played well accept for the miss on kicking for touch

    GO MANLY!!!!!!!!!!!

      I agree with Taufua. If Baz is willing to think outside the square a little more interchangeability between our centres and wingers could be a very good thing.
