    Clive Churchill Winner: Lyon, though Perry if he knocks out Crocker or White and I think there a fair chance that’s on the cards after the bad blood the sides seemed to have last time they played. I also think without smith getting Melbourne going forward creatively that Melbourne will be trying to play a mugs game of bash and grubby play, I’m expecting fireworks !!!

    Penalty Count: 9 - 5 Melbourne's way

    Here's a prediction:

    At the 78th minute - Melbourne 14 manly 12.  Storm spin it wide - looking like scoring.  Matai comes up with an absolute bell ringer and knocks the ball out of Crocker's hands about ten out saving a certain try. Crocker is ko'd and doesn't move. 

    Brett Stewart swoops and picks it up one handed already at full speed and is away down the sideline to about halfway.  Cover defence comes across and as Snake slows down sends a flick pass to lyon.  Lyon is well covered and trails across to centre field.  As he is tackled he gets away an offload to an absolutely flying Menzies about 30 out who is headed straight up the middle and only has Slater to beat.  Beaver treats him like a speed hump and scores under the posts creating pandemonium. 

    Manly fans at the ground can't control themselves and all run on to the ground, forcing the ref to simply call full time. 

    As a result Bellamy has a MASSIVE dummy spit and is led away in handcuffs. 

    Meanwhile Crocker still lies there motionless, and in the middle of the pandemonium is given a "Carney" by a quick thinking ST poster. 

    That's what is going to happen - I know it.

    CC medal: Jamie Lyon

    Penalty count: 6-7

    I'm expecting an absolutely brutal and nasty game.

    Perry, Watmough, and Kite to have blinders from the front.

    Stewart, Lyon, and Bell from the back.

    Manly 22-10

    CC Medal: History suggests it'll come from 1, 6, 7 or 9, due to the amount of times they handle the ball. However I think I'll go for Glen Stewart, who'll hopefully set up some nice tries and maybe score 1 or 2 himself down the RHS.

    Penalty Count: Who cares as long as there isn't a controversial penalty that turns the game. For the sake of this, let's say we'll win the penalty count 7-5.

    That was exactly the first version of my post, but then sense prevailed when I reminded myself this is a family forum.

    Not sure if I am happy to hear that things I write cause grown men to shoot their loads. 

    I would have included a few other goings on but then it would have just gotten unbelieveable!! ;)

    I pretty much dreamt this yesterday - and I never remember my dreams  except for this time, so I am taking that as an omen.

    PP's in front with 5 to go, Billy brings it out from his 25, swerves, beats Choc and Perry and makes 45, then looks to Inglis unmarked and flips a 20 mt pass. Inglis collects but Brett hits him with a rattler, the ball pops out and he regathers and runs to Geyer who tackles awkwardly and is left with a dislocated shoulder. Snake turns it inside to Lyon, who passes to a screaming Hall who bulldozes through Croker to score under the post. Thank you ref, thank you ballboys. Lyon is hurt, Matai has a bung shoulder and can't sit up, Ox is hobbling so the ball is tossed to Kite. He lines it up and puts it over.
