No NSW cup has hit us harder than most because Des is so reluctant give them a go. I'm sure if they were playing a few of the young guns would have forced Des' hand by now. He is just a stubborn old man
I am a Des fan, make no doubt about it....but every man has his cryptonite and Des's is being stubborn...and not prepared to roll the dice of change when needed, as in now...

I like Des too but I love winning more and I dont like our Proud Manly jumper being stained like it was last night . I am only loyal to the competent Manly greats that make our Manly Jumper great .

Here's my team and it's just great:

1. Elliott
Best 1 we have available. End of story.
2. Taufua
Top try scorer and great hair.
3. Funa
Centre through and through. No more trying him at wing, give him his spot!
4. Suli
Shines at centre. I like the bloke.
5. Garrick
Until we have a more powerful ball runner we can't drop him. Iceman also kicks our goals.
6. Cust
He's good.
7. DCE
Our best and only half back.
8. AFB
Our best prop.
9. Levi
Our only recognised 9.
10. Jake
He's a prop not a tackling machine lock.
11. Guacamole
Will be the future second rower of choice at Manly so just get him some game time now.
12. Thompson
Love the guy. Wish he was signed for another ten years.
13. Schuster
The future star. Get him some game time please. Would be a great ball running lock.

14. Croker I guess, someone to spell Levi as he fades at 50 minutes.
15. Marty needs to be on the bench as impact.
16. Paseka
17. Keppie

Waddell, Sipley and Boyle reserves.

Bench of three props because it's my list and that's what I want. Also, our best position is prop so why not. Just rotate through Schuster who can move to second row etc.

I predict Des will go with this though:

1. Elliott
2. Taufua
3. Funa
4. Suli
5. Garrick
6. Cust
7. DCE
8. AFB
9. Levi
10. Taupau
11. Thompson
12. Waddell
13. Jake

14. Croker
15. Huamole (?)
16. Paseka
17. Keppie

Which is also fine.

Our centres need to be better, I seriously wish we had a backline of 6'3" fast monsters with footwork. But such is life. Perhaps Funa/Suli can lift.

Garrick is pretty much essential as he can kick goals ... I just wish he was 10 yards faster and 5 kilograms heavier. Jorge is great and I won't hear a bad word against him.

DCE & Cust is our best halves pairing.

Our props are some of the best in the game and we have great depth. Using this to our advantage could be the key to success this year and next. Use them!!

Outside of Joel I worry about our second rowers. Is Waddell good enough? Will Haumole going to step up? Schuster, is he the answer?

Pretty much the way I have been thinking other then Harper, I don’t know much about him.

Would like Paseka to start and Marty off the bench to add the energy when needed.

As we saw last year, Garrick definitely has the pace and is a quality finisher, just needs more quality ball. Too many times this year Siro has come back on the inside instead of going wide with a draw and pass.

So I've seen plenty of opinions on who shouldn't be picked ... can posters please let me know who you DO want (full 1-17 please)??

Unavailable for selection:
  • Dylan Walker (foot, TBC)
  • Brad Parker (head knock, round 14)
  • Curtis Sironen (knee, TBC)
  • Tom Trbojevic (hamstring, round 15-17)
  • Albert Hopoate (knee, indefinite)
  • Manase Fainu (stood down/shoulder)
I think we can put together a decent Silvertails 17.
Maybe we should just forfeit...at least that way we won’t get any more injuries ....and I won’t lose more money at the TAB.

Haha there may be another way ... I haven't lost a cent at the TAB all year. Ask me how! (Secret comes at a cost of $5 per text send and receive).

I was going great until Mark at Brisbane picked Manly and changed his pick in the st George game. I am more superstitious than Steve Waugh!

But we all know des won’t have a bar of that team, far to many changes for his liking.

that team you listed would be a breath of fresh air and I think would win on Friday night.
