DCE needs to learn to commit to the line if he is going to run the ball. Everytime he runs he stops and goes around in circles which kills the momentum. All in all great effort backing up and leading by example.
Thing is he beats the first tackle most times

Remember in his early years he had two different dummy moves he did?

He ran the ball more in his early years which is great to see. We just need him to somehow find that again especially on the coin he is on.

I remember when he used to run the ball...

I remember when he had great defence....

I remember when he was one of the best 7's in the game...

Something like Cleary is now.

Lucky I have a good memory.

I hope we are already looking for a replacement to take over the day his current contract expires. He rode on the backs of Foran, Killer, the Stewarts etc., and now is only surviving riding on Tom's back.
If our forwards can dominate it will be ok otherwise we are screwed because that’s DCE

he was trying to step, and he usually beat the first one and often two defenders, then palmed a few, and went again then off loaded. pretty sure didn't kill any momentum, he was just trying to stay alive. he could take the tackle though, but I prefer him to keep trying to attack and look for support back on the inside if the outside has been shut down.

Right on full time you could see it was so draining on DCE Wednesday night he look drained but yes he could of very easily gone into his shell tonight but he played one of his better games.

He and the boys can now rest the rest of the long weekend and get ready for the titans next Sunday afternoon.. another long break then orgin bye weekend where the NRL goes into bye weekend with origin on June 27th then we play bulldog down at Bankwest Saturday 3rd July 3pm.

DCE just needs to be committed to what he is doing. To me he takes the wrong options at times.
Every player does.
What no-one can dispute is his durability and love of Manly. He was inspiring tonight. I just don't get why he attracts so much negativity. He is one of the top two halfbacks in the comp, and has been so for the past eight seasons.
