    13+ for me.
    Even without Packer.
    Someone else will come in with a point to prove.
    Benji himself said he had a soft game this week, another point to prove.
    I f**king hate Manly - we have a point to prove.

    ;)

    Big game

    Packers a massive loss and they’ll likely have Tommy Turbo back which makes them a 12+ better point team. ET should be back but he doesn’t bring what Rusty does.

    Nice 8 day lay off for us. Hopefully we don’t get raped by the refs like last time we played at Brookie. I’ll go is 20-12

    Manly are not to be underestimated, not playing to their potential atm and can blow teams off the park when they turn it on

    First game this year I'm genuinely worried about. If Manly turn up they will punish us. Packer is a huge loss, whichever prop we bring in will have to play out of their skin. I'm hoping to see Sue on the bench and having a blinder

    Manly at Brooky & Tommy turbo expected to play should provide our robust defence with our toughest test yet.This will b a ripper of a game on a forecast sunny Sunday arvo.

    We have a reserve grade with a lot of hungry players just waiting for a shot at the top grade. We are the one club that can afford a few injuries as we spread our cap
    Evenly over the whole roster. Although it will be a big test as people now expect us to win

    The betting agencies don’t expect us to win as per usual as we r outsiders again this wk v manly.

    We should b able to frustrate the heck out of manly by limiting there ability to score.They r nowhere near as strong as the storm in the middle.If Benji & Brooks were to both play well we win this comfortably.

    I think it will be Josh and Luke starting and Benji on the bench. I am not sure if Benji's body is holding up to the rigger of 80 min games every week these days and Josh was our star signing. We will know today however.

    I wonder how Reynolds is going to play. He was ordinary in the trials. I hope he comes good because he has a 4 year contract.

    matched or at least I hope, the enthusiasm of a guy who brings that to his game and has been waiting for his 1st game for his new team. Plus AloIai to get more minutes and go out trying to keep his place in the 17 when Packer comes back (and having all players fit).

    Just hope that Reynolds is 110%

    Tom Turbo will be out to make sure the Blues selectors have him in their minds.

    I did initially pick us 1-12 but I have a nasty feeling they will look to go wide early in numbers to try and isolate our edge defenders. They have the team capable of doing it.

    I thought he was alright against the cows, everyone was shit against Cronulla. We’ve seen how much having Liddle back has helped the halves in the last 2 games.

    Josh will take a backseat and let Brooks control everything. He’ll be fine.

    I hope I’m wrong but I have a hunch that Liddle will go back to reserve grade for match fitness if reynolds is fit for this week.Hopefully Godinet is the one who makes way for reynolds but I can’t IC dropping him just yet.

    Eisenhuth should start as prop & Et will b lock.

    Hopefully we don't have to kick too many goals as I have 0% confidence in Marsters' kicking ability at this stage.

    Interested to know what’s going on with Tui, is it hammy or form? We’ll miss his goal kicking whatever it is.

    Glad to have Nofa and Grub back. Liddle will star at 9. Wonder who gets the 17th spot out of Grant or Sue, whoever it is gets a great chance to shine
