Lol yeah like your boys sloting a cowards 2 would have changed the result

Don't care if it changed the result, it's just this little movement by Penrith fans that they get flogged by the refs and that's the only reason other teams can get close to them is a load of horse shit

That was a bad call. Kline made some stinkers today too, he really is shit. That Cleary "high" tackle was diabolical

Who said shit about ref's being the only reason teams get close to us?

Manly played pretty well today. You guys played very well two weeks ago. Newy were decent energy wise as well. Mid level teams are lifting against us as you'd expect from a team on a roll like ours, we're a bit off the pace as well. I'd rather fight for victories at this time of year than breeze through so its all right by me.

The refs stuff is a natural reaction to a few bullshit calls and a bit of banter (going both ways mind you). Not worth getting triggered over.

The tap on knock on near the end might have gone forward, but none of the angles shown were the slightest bit conclusive. The challenge should not have been allowed.

What seems to be happening is that teams following us in the draw get an easy game.

Out of curiosity, checked Manly’s opposition, 6 out of the 7 teams we’ve played are in the Top 8. (Penrith twice)

Tough draw so far.

Also helps that you’ve only played one game against a team in the Top 8. Most lose the next week because they’re shit.
What top 8 are you talking about? the top 8 from last year, the top 8 from this week, or the top 8 at the time the game is played. Gotta be precise when you quote stats. Manly were only out of the top 8 for this game because we beat them by 40 a few weeks back. If we'd only beat them by 2 in that game we'd be a better side, is that your argument?

Why would last years top 8 be relevant in round 8 this year?

Doesn't matter what you beat Manly by. A shit team is a shit team.
