How good is it to see....



  • The boys just playing footy this year…. They look like they are enjoying themselves and believe in themselves and their game plan. The body language is far, far better. A far cry from last years mind numbing stuff.

    Were very, very dangerous all over the park with this game plan in 2016.

    Moses has 7 try assists I think in 2 games. He is a freak.

    Luke Brooks short kicking game looked very dangerous.

    Kev and Nofo are getting early ball and are electric.

    Our forwards are ripping in and having a crack. Chris Lawrance was outstanding as was Grant.

    Still some poor efforts in defence however Manly got plenty of piggy backs.

    Its all about balance and were getting close to the right mix.

    Still don’t want to be leting in 24 a game, however were outscoring teams at the minute and the defence should get better as the year progresses.



  • Agree 100% Eddie, well said. Just need to work on the D and cutting out the cheap penalties which are hurting us. Loving the attack and the extra space around the ruck is helping our pack make good metres up the middle.

    I think it’s the cheap penalties that are killing us at times. Our centres are guns. Our halves may turn into guns. Our fullback is a weapon. If the forwards keep rucking it up hard I think the halves get space and they have options outside of them.

    It’s hard not to get excited.



  • The game has quickened so far this season with the rule changes which helps us immensely. But its been our forwards that haven’t taken a backward step that have propelled us. Full marks to every forward and especially Tim Grant imo

    The thing that impressed me the most was we for the most part defended penalties and errors…We gifted Manly plenty of possession and scrambled well for the most part…

    At the ground you could feel we were never going to just turn it up …it was another game we would have lost in the past…

    Credit must go to the S & C staff …I have never seen them fitter…again we win a game with 16 men for almost 80 min…



  • Tim Grant could be the buy of the year, another strong game, 133 m from 16 runs, 25 tackles, 1 MT :slight_smile:

    But it will take its toll Geo and that’s what concerns me

    Things like that don’t show up straight away

    Any truth to the rumour that Farah is an outside chance this week

    The game will slow down a little as the season rolls on and that is when the grind starts to take effect, but unlike plenty of other teams we have fire power and that can get you out of plenty of holes. We also have some depth for a change

    Farah was interviewed by Danny weidler before the start of the game , says he’s hoping to be back for the Parra game .
    So he won’t be signing your flag on the Gold Coast 😦

    Sure 😒



  • The League Media will focus on our backs and the opposition forward packs. Some opposition packs like Dogs, Souths, Canberra have been great. Going under the radar is our pack. We aren’t steamrolling teams with dramatic plays. But we are running hard and doing clever switches give us plenty of metres .



  • We are looking good no doubt! Throat is pretty sore today from the cheering last night…

    We’re still leaking too many points to trouble teams like the broncos, but I’m hoping we’ll tidy that up as the season drags on.



  • Backs are good, forwards are good, bench is good, depth is good - it’s all good.

    oh, and coach is good too it seems.
