    Sea Eagles pushing for three wins on the bounce
    Andrew Prentice, Manly Daily
    July 20, 2016 4:33pm


    SEA Eagles enforcer Martin Taupau has vowed not to taper his trademark aggression ahead of Monday game against the Rabbitohs at Allianz Stadium.

    Speaking at the club’s Narrabeen training base on Wednesday, the Kiwi international revealed coming up against the Rabbitohs is always a game he looks forward to.

      I must have fallen asleep and missed that trademark aggression this year.

          Martin really needs to hit the line with speed more than once or twice a game.

            I hope he is saving it up, because I haven't seen much aggression yet.

              I can smell another 4 week suspension. Hope he doesn't get sucked in to believing his own hype.

                I reckon since that swinging arm suspension combined with longer minutes, it has taken away from his intimidation factor, though he still makes good yards & a decent physical presence - nowhere near what he potentially has - agree with many here that he is not deep enough winding up & trucking into those edges....THIS is what would scare opponents.

                  He averages more metres than any of our other forwards (125m), and makes 10 metres per run. He isn't going that badly.

                    Not saying he is going bad pjayz, and like him better at prop. But am responding to the tag "trademark aggression".

                    Apart from when he got the ****s and picked a bloke up and dropped him, I can't remember one good front on hit he has made all year. Nil intimidation factor.

                    My neighbors 10yo daughter fires up more when I turn the hose on her cat.

                        Yes, point taken. He could be a little more aggressive when running the ball or putting on some big 'legal' hits; however, he is still getting us up the field quite well.

                            I think if Marty and the boys really rip in and get over their forwards we will put a score on them this week. Manly 28 Souths 8! Jorge 1st try.
