Against the top side at full strength.. an 18th man in Klein and we still had them on the ropes. Key mistakes cost us especially jake dropping the ball over on their line. All up this is a great indication of where we are at.. we took it to the top side and just lost. We still aren't close to full strength and are still gelling with new combinations. If you arent excited about this group of players then GET EXCITED LADIES AND GENTS! bring on next week at brookie for Tommy's 100th game ( unless im mistaken) and mothers day!

Edit: we scored more points against panthers then any side so far...

I loved Penrith last season. This year, they are bordering on becoming the new Melbourne for me. As soon as Manly started taking it to them, they grubbiness, the cockiness, the unsportsmanlike play and all the bull**** that comes with it came out. They are such a great team to watch, but when they start pulling that **** out I just can't stand it.

But still a great game from Manly. Best effort against Penrith all year.

Considering how quiet Turbo was. Great effort.

Morgan Harper is the new KING. Porn King that is. :)
He is light years ahead of Suli with his tenacity in defence and getting better in attack. No longer is Manly’s right edge a turnstile.

Neither Walker or Suli will get back into this side right now. Reubens had better games but that happens. Warriors next week. Bring it on.

I honestly think Croker is the reason for our issues when attacking. He just doesn’t capitalise on a quick ruck at all.
He’s gassed mate. It’s not him so much as the fact he’s tackling his ass off. Des needs to reflect on how he’s using Cust. Again today leaves it far to late to put him on. Needs to come on at the 30 for 25-30mins.

I love Ron Jeremy! See how pumped he got when the boys threw to'o over the sideline?
Only time suli gets that excited is when he's at macca's

Yep Tom's 100th next week.

You know that felt like the storm game of 2008 when we lost but you knew we gained more from the loss than the win.

We had no walker, no fainu or lawton. You add walker and one of the others in today we would of won.

Today showed me why I love this team. Panthers playing like they did today would of put 50 on the tigers dogs and Broncos even cowboys.

Probably bottom of the top 8 is where we will finish this year, but there is so much promise for the future with this team.

Finally loved the Des spray at half time, he has clearly not lost the dressing room.

I'm not often happy after a loss, but I'm feeling pretty good how we fought today.

Penrith capitalise on everything, and we didn't give them much. A couple of individual errors were the difference.

Defended very well in the main, except for their 2nd try in the first half.

Two premierships in 54 years. Great return for the Penrith LC’s investment.
