Great! One of the worst defenders in our team defending in the middle for 50 minutes against one of the best packs in the comp.I thin Keppie will play 13 for the first 30 minutes and then Walker to play there for the rest of the game.
Think we will truly see his value to our team and how much we miss him.Jake is rarely out of our team.
Will be very interesting to see how our middles hold up in defence and how our attack will look like as Jake is our link man.
That is why in my eyes tomorrow is such a crucial game, we don't win we drop right back to the team's fighting for the 8, we win as you said it gives us some very much needed buffer from the teams below us.Win and we are two games clear of 7th and one game from 5th placed chooks

Lawton to 13 and Kelpie starts in the 2nd row. The path with the least team disruption is best. Let Walker play the last 15 min and Give Kelpie a rest.
There are a few must win games each year but this isn't one of them. The focus for Manly at this stage is improving as a team and individually.Even with Jake out if we are serious about playing finals footy this is a must win game for us
Agree, He’s going to be best in the last 15 min of both halves when the touch footy starts.My goodness 40. I didn't think Walker was one of our worst defenders. Not our best certainly, but he filled in at 5/8 which requires heavy work in defence and he didn't let the side down. Mind you I don't think he's a good 5/8, fairly reasonable at best and a little small for lock so on those grounds I agree.
Crucial game perspective.......That is why in my eyes tomorrow is such a crucial game, we don't win we drop right back to the team's fighting for the 8, we win as you said it gives us some very much needed buffer from the teams below us.
Big big game tomorrow

The fact it is not a must win game actually makes it more of a challenge!
Interesting to see De Luis come into the starting side at lock. Certainly a work horse that could make Jake’s tackle count.
