He's the first manly player I've actively despised, others like Craig Field for instance I just wanted not at manly
I think you'll find the Captains challenge was utilised so the boys could have a breatherI was stunned at Parker’s glacial pace for the second try and the wasted captains challenge. Surely Parker knew he’d touched that.
He did some fine cover tackles but I think his speed is becoming a bit of an issue in a fast paced game.
This is what lost us the match. Early on i am all for piling on pressure ... but when the game is that close take the fkn 2FWIW, Gus on twitter was outraged at the forward pass call but also pretty gobsmacked at both decisions not to take the 2.
“Clear Try”?? What BS"Manly were robbed a certain try to Tom Trbojevic when referee Chris Buttler somehow found a forward pass Brad Parker in the 30th minute."

Apparently not entirely Manly's fault - some of it - but not all.
The annual chat about forward pass technology will fire up this week after the Sea Eagles were denied a clear try by the officials.
Head office has mentioned the idea of putting chips in balls for years, and the same old questions will resurface after Chris Sutton found a forward pass from Brad Parker that rubbed out what would have been a spectacular Tom Trbojevic try.
The problem was the pass was perfectly legal and should have resulted in four points for the visitors midway through the first half.
Tied at 6-6 in the 30th minute, Manly’s Brad Parker made a break down the left side of the field before offloading it back inside to five-eighth Josh Schuster.
The 21-year-old then quickly passed it on to star Tom Trbojevic with only one man to beat for what looked like a certain try only 20 metres out.
However, referee Chris Sutton didn’t let the play unfold, calling Parker’s pass to Schuster forward to deny a “wonderful try”.
Fox League’s Dan Ginnane and Greg Alexander were both extremely critical of the call, believing Manly were robbed of crucial points.
“Well that is a wonderful try that has been denied and the Eagles are incensed,” Ginnane said.
“At that no stage did I think there was a forward pass in that movement,” Alexander said.
“No, no, no. No way was that forward, what is wrong? That’s a let off for Souths.”
What else could he say, he‘d be a class clown he even tried it any other way, sad part is declaration doesn’t help us and doesn‘t change the result, it may be a very important 2 points come the end of the season.What goes around comes around. Yeah, sure. 2020.
“The pass out of the hands of Tom Trbojevic went backwards. The ball did float forward but it should have been a try,” Annesley told Fox League.
“The call was wrong. The decision was made by the touch judge but the rules state the ball only has to go backwards out of the hands.
