I have come to the belief that Manly will win back to back for the following reasons. 1.We genuinely have the best roster of the contenders 2.The boys are very motivated to prove it wasnâ€™t all just Hasler 3.We are about to get our full strength side on the paddock at the right time 4.The signs are there in recent weeks that they are starting to click in both defence and attack. 5.We have plenty of gears to step up when the finals begin Compare this to the contenders: dishlickers: They are playing their best footy now and have no improvement left in them. Shut down Barba and they have very few points in them. Their inexperience will count against them big time. souffs: They had a glimpse last Friday night of what they will be in for in the finals. They too donâ€™t have any additional gears to go to and will wilt under the pressure of expectation. purple scum: They are soft in the forwards. They are apparently back on track after beating penriff & GC (Woopy do), but Iâ€™m not buying it. We will see how they go against a weak donkeys outfit. Nth Qld: The biggest threat in my view, but they just canâ€™t win in Sydney. Forget the rest. This Premiership is there for the taking.
