They have to start tonight's game with that useless poweder puff Ian Donnelly at prop. Partnering no-name White.

I reckon you'd rather have Mullane at halfback ahead of Orford than have to start with that useless lump of lard.

Expect the Storm pack to go backwards at a rate of knots and Orford to struggle. Let's just hope he doesn't get injured.

He's already managed to get in the way of a long cut out from Orford!

Orford isnt playing well.

A useless kick on the third, and a grubber with no chasers.

Not trying to defend him, as I too think Monaghan is ordinary, but Orford was flat tonight behind a soft forward pack and without another playmaker. Scott Hill went awol after the intercept and Orford was left to do everything.

This should serve as a warning to Manly, not to Orford or Monaghan, but to the forwards, stand up and start to show a bit of ticker.

There is only one half back who can look good behind a beaten pack and that isn't Orford or Monaghan.

I agree that unless our pack can get some go forward happening next year then we are not going to get the best out of our backline.

That means ballin and Dunley as hookers and Burns as 5/8.
