Can't believe the negative talk after last night!!!! Only Parra supporters would praise DCE one week and then turn on him the next like some on our forum. Very narrow minded! Half back is an important position and DCE will need time to mature and develop. I have seen enough to say he will be our half back for a very long time. Think he is going well and has shown he has a brilliant kicking game. Snake and Wolfman were huge losses. SnakeÃ¢Â€Â™s organizing at the back is very important especially for our defense. We have a stack of Brilliant kids at an average age of 20. As 'the mauler' posted we had Buhrer (future Origin player) out of position where a few soft tries were scored. To become great players our rookies need games which gives them experience. They might drop a few during the season but I am sure when we get our full squad back we are going to be top 4 bound. Players will also be fighting for positions which will increase performance. True Manly fans never doubt our players or Dessy, so stay strong Dessy will have our team over-achieving as per usual!!!
