Good to finally see Mikaele, Giles and Pap back. Only need Lemuelu back now.
Having Doolan at halfback is still a worry. Big ask for young Garzaniti. Surely there’s an actual halfback in the squad somewhere?Probably the smallest halves combo in the NYC, makes it hard in defence.

they really put in against newie and were unlcuky to not beat the side coming 4th. hoping for a similar performace against another top 8 side in the eagles.
Tigers up 10-6 after 27 minutes. The cubs have dominated possession so far.
Manly hit back. 10-10 after 35 minutes, ktc.
Manly go back to back on halftime, 14-10 ktc.
Manly up 16-10 at halftime. Tigers coming up with some silly plays prior to the break.
Papenhuyzen tore his hammy early on too.
Seyfarth has a tendency to give away silly penalties…
Manly in again, 20-10 ktc after 44 minutes. Tigers looking shot now.
Manly in again, 24-10 ktc after 53 minutes. Silly errors and a lack of options in attack hurting the Tigers.
Tigers hit back, 26-14 ktc with 18 to go.
26-16. Manly definitely have more talent and power but the Tigers are hanging in there.
Manly up 32-16 with 10 to go.
