We were the better team for MOST of the match. Dominated the first half despite only a 6 point lead, had a devastating period in the first 25 of the second half which inevitably was the killer, and finished well on top for the last 15. Many positives to come out of the game IMO, a good 30% better than our performance against the Sharks. 5 more minutes on Friday, and mark my words, we would've won.

We lost the game because we lost an 80 minute player and best defender in the first tackle of the second half. We struggled to make the adjustment and Manly pounced. That was the difference between the two teams.

Hate this comment "one of those days ,or one of those games" We went into the half time with the game at our feet and went back into our shell How often in the first set after half time do we make a silly mistake or turnover ??

Someone mentioned about injuries and it is a common story we were well in control of the game v Cronulla when Tedesco went down also and lost the plot and control of that game as well
