Smokin Joe, never seen such poor refereeing in all my days watching league. The SG Ball boys were seriously duded. They would have easily won in a canter in that 2nd half with an unbiased ref. On a positive note, I was quite impressed with our other centre Simon Tito. Local guy?

Toulu looks fast just standing there. Would loved to have seen him stretching out. Is he the fastest at the club?
Yeah,I think Tito is not far away(tall unit and quite a player I think),thought he might be in the side but the outside backs are not too shabby.Nah,he is not a local, played with Eels juniors and a season with Roosters.Yeah the reffing was not great but they had their chances tho.

Thought Humphries may get a run
Yeah he is rated but hard to drop Harris/Lawler/Gibbs for him right now,they deserve their spots..Reckon he will get a shot as long as we get him re-signed for the future as he is off contract.Thought Fotu might be in the mix but not sure if he is suspended(had a sinbinning and dangerous tackle charge I think),fiery dude who has some mongrel and gets in the mix of things,not a big unit but got to love the way he plays.

i think he copped an injury to his knee , had it strapped through half time i think he caught a bad cork in his knee so maybe thats why

I've heard said that Koula is the fastest in the game, and a rep sprinter. Any comments Smokin'?

Bloody Whingers up to dirty tricks again. For starters If I remember we played Wests in the Prelim final not the whingers so what on earth is it to do with them to cite one of our players for a game that did not involve them? Ah thats right we play them in the final, come on boys not that you need any added motivation but please put the whingers to the sword on Saturday!

I agree with all the praise that the young Fainu is receiving. But another player caught my eye.
I watched Josh Feledy play last weekend and I was struck by the similarity with the great Jamie Lyon. That's a huge comparison, I know, but Feledy has similar attributes for one so young. He is a centre; solid in stature but not big or bulky; he is fast but not lightening; he hits the holes; he is smart; he finds the tryline somehow, some way; he tackles strongly; he's a real competitor . . .
Let's hope he continues his progress.

Hasn't the coverage of Manly in the telegraph of the matthews and ball cup been non existent. Today's paper has nothing on the matts. Yesterday the teams were listed only for ball.
Every week no mention except for when it was a write up of who was playing Manly.
Poor,poor,poor

We have the same ref that killed us last week refereeing the Matts final, the commentator lost any credibility he might of had by saying and I quote. "The Ref had a great game last week" I could not stop laughing when I heard that!
