Yep the reality is that Manly dominated that game.

Of course, it is a worry that they almost blew it (again)

But they have beaten 3 top teams and have been in every game except for one. That is progress amongst the frustrations.
Thing that excites me is that Brooks is only going to get better playing with his new team/structures… he was very good (again) last night and hopefully the spine is settled and Brooksy is full of confidence and tearing opposition defences apart by the time finals roll around…

So just take him off for periods that the opposition are not going to score? That should be easy enough for the coach…

He took him off when we were on top and brought him back on 9 min later in response to a try from the drizzle… Jake played 71 min but that is not enough?

I would suggest that the coach simply cannot win in the eyes of some… played a kid at FB that killed it, introduced new attacking plays (Chez’s switch, angled run to Burbo) that came off (not crediting him with Jake try as that was all Chez), brought Gordy on at a time that he could be effective etc etc…

I could care less, we won a tight game against a quality side and I hope that Seibs coaches that “poorly” for the rest of the season…
You do it on circumstance. We had gone up 12 with half an hour to go, and we have a history this season of giving up leads. As soon as I saw him sit down, my first thought was we will let them straight back in, and sure enough they start killing our middle. He comes back on, and immediately it settles down again. If it is a must that he comes off, I would have had him defending at least 3 more sets so we can consolidate a 12 point lead, or even extend it. The middle D is already weakened without Croker

Agree with your points about our middle but I reckon Seibs probably brought ‘fresh’ forwards on seeking to ram home our advantage while we were on the front foot… he then responded immediately to the threat when the drizzle scored…
If our replacement forwards step up then it is a genius move… as it was we conceded points but I still think it was the best time to rest Jake…

I too didn't bother watching last night.. I don't regret it either .. wife wanted to go out and see a band, and after the last few weeks of manly garbage I decided my time would be better spent going with her and having a good night out ..

Glad manly won, glad they showed some heart, but again, this is one of my main gripes with this team... Show up against the likes of storm and Panthers, but get rolled by useless hacks like the raiders (missing 3/4 of their spine) dragons, dolphins (with their best guys out), broncos with 3/4 of their spine out etc etc etc

Been doing it for years, put effort in against top teams and play absolutely deplorably against no hoper teams

I take your point about the annoyance of inconsistent effort/results but, to be fair, it is only two seasons ago that we were beating up on the crap teams but everyone was saying we are not a realistic chance because we could not beat a top 4 side…

So I guess that means we ARE a realistic chance now…

Seems the next step in this progression is beating a top tier team away from Brookie.

After that, consistency of performance.

I guess that means we're about half way there.

I watched the match today. Good win, although we tried to spoon it with stupid errors in the last 7 minutes, but good D at the end.

Good to Seibs is reading my posts and trying not to be mediocre 😁

That said, Melbourne were schiit with the ball in hand and so many " Manly Like " handling errors.

Hopefully we learn and get better.

You missed it @XV-1!!!???

Not only did we beat a top-2 side but Seibs coached a kid to one of the best debut games in a looong time!! At Fullback no less!!!!

Man, you would have been so proud 😜🙃

Good win.

B careful with those debut game statements.
Remember Schu and Benji's best ever debut comment 😢

I was careful not to make the claim that young Hopper can be “the best player in the game”… 😉😂 (Schu has already claimed that position for himself)

In all seriousness it was a nice debut though, looked very confident and strong for a small-ish kid… but, as you rightly point out, it is ONE NRL game - the work has only just begun if he wants to turn a successful game into a successful career…
