McIlwain ruled to have bounced the ball in trying to ground it chasing his own kick. It looked like it could justifiably have been awarded as a benefit of the doubt try.

First Grader
Asostasi - possibly gone for the year.
Tonga - doubt for the rest of the season
Myles - Doubt for the rest of the season.
Willie Mason - on report but there was nothing in it.

A lot of bumps and bruises and very littel to play for, though technically Manly could take their place in 2nd with three big wins and if they lost the lot - It aint gonna happen.

However - it is going to be tough for the Dogs.
Reserve Grader
What a shame for the Bulldogs !!
(tears of joy)

Whatever happens they can't lose 2nd position on the table , but it certainly gives Manly a great opportunity to grab a victory next Friday & a top 4 spot.
Winging it
Nice to see the dogs in trouble ahead of our clash, but no way was last night good news for us. Thanks to a pathetic display the Broncos picked up 30 pts in f/a, something that may be incredibly dangerous for us. I would rather the dogs won.
Journey Man
we are a very outside chance of making 2nd now , but we would have to win all 3 remaining, plus pick up a lot of f/a - if we can put 30+ on them next week it will be interesting.

I still would have prefered the dogs won, im just hoping they play like that next week
