Amidst the disappointment of failing to turn up to play at Suncorp, it is important to note that form this year is topsy turvey and that any given team can beat any other on their day (or night!) Manly has beaten Melbourne and the Sharks who are in the top echelon whilst Brisbane were soundly flogged by Storm only a few weeks ago. There are crazy upsets and the form guide is virtually useless. To think that Manly would go through a season without a loss is ridiculous and at the start of the year most of us (who are realisitic) would have tipped the Win and Suncorp Games as expected losses. Our delight in the resurgence of Manly (well earned) must not cloud the facts that we are going to lose quite a few games here and there, we struggle to win away from Brookie and that we lack class and depth in a few positions. Instead of heading for the gap we should be thankful that we are still equal top, we are realistic (but by no means certain) top 8 chances and we should improve with a youngish team.
