On the Radio tonight prior to the game the story was doing the rounds that Manly were flu-affected. Orford was said to have been laid low all week as was Burns.

I thought they probably were, they looked a bit flat. I heard during the week that they weren't doing a lot of training, but the reason given was the tough game against the Storm. It'd be interesting to know whether they were or weren't affected by the flu. I wasn't too dissapointed with the effort tbh, just one of those games.

Yep, one of those games that you just can't put your finger on the reason we lost.

However I reckon another 5 mins and we would have got it. Can't use that excuse though.

Player times on field aside....watch minutes 45-80. Didnt look like those on field were flu effected or lacking in intensity to me. we didnt finish off well in the 2nd half.
