    Interestingly he made the NRL team of the week. I thought he went well but just wish he would do it more consistently. 247 run metres. The pundits on this site stated it should have been a win for us. Oh well..

    Agree his best game for the dragons.
    Did well except rushing in and leaving his wing for the first try.
    But is definitely improving.

    Manly have speed to burn. We will get thrashed. Dufty and Hind deserve a go. Dufty to replace Milne and Hind to replace Sele who makes silly errors although he runs and defends well. If Packer is injured bring in Ross.

    If we hve any chance of beating Manly, we need to close down Korasai and limit the influence of DCE.
    We will probably edge them in the forwards but that will not be enough.

    With Vaughan back he will start with Ah Mau.

    If Aitken is back he goes into the centres with Lafai.

    You would think Frizzell maybe back to so he would start with Sims to the bench.

    Dugan you would think may not play but who knows.

    Milne should drop out and Mann will probably head back to the bench.

    You're a bloody champion Blood Shot Eyes! Love the positive outlook. I'm with you. We probably need a little luck but I think we can win 4 of the last 7 and make the eight!

    I hope you two lunatics are right.
    I'd love to say I was wrong and be more positive about our team.

    I was listening to paul kent and gordon tallis - two intellectual titans, i know, but you know what they say, a million monkeys on a million typewriters etc - talk about the Dragons and why they've gone away from their power game that was so successful earlier in the season. They said it basically comes down to the general wear and tear that comes from that style of footy. Frizzell and Duges are obviously busted, and DeBelin's shoulder has more strapping than I've ever seen. The sideways thing is coming as a result of players not wanting to exacerbate pre-existing injuries by repeatedly slamming their bodies into the opposition, and no amount of coaching is going to stop that mentality.

    The overall point is this: basically, most teams have this problem, but they have enough size and strike out on the flanks, coupled with finesse and skill in the halves, that they can accomodate a busted forward pack. We simply don't have that luxury.

    That being the case, Taupau and wife bashing human excrement Fonua-Blake should have an absolute field day against us.

    I wish we could wind the clock back to Round 6, both teams were on a roll with 3 wins on the trot.
    Widdop was excellent, first try sneaking past DCE in the memorable play the ball saga. A field goal later on then another sneaky try at Turbos' feet at the end.
    Even McCrone set JDB up for a nice try.
    Nighty was FB, Mann on the wing scored.
    Aitken was also on fire with two tries.
    Only glitch was Taufua scoring two tries that MacDonald and Aitken really could have done more to stop.

    Anyway, Barrett will be looking forward to this one, sweet revenge and cementing into the top 4. McAnchor will rev the boys up threatening a tougher boot camp over christmas when we drop out of the 8.

    Manly by 18.
