    Sounds like Sticky has Hoppa @ 1 & Hayne @ 6 in his sights.

    Yeah I agree. I predict Rick will pick him as a captain this season. :sarcasm:

    We really are under playing our chances for 2013. Ricky is playing it perfect in the media to ensure we keep our under dog status ( which we do deserve as wooden spooners).

    Does anyone really reckon Stuart is not expecting a finals appearance this year ? Ricky hates losing.

    Hates losing but he and Hayne are being realistic about our chances. We have lost a mountain of experience and we have been very quiet reccruiting.

    If we get to the finals it will be a massive effort.

    Love that insight, agreed that he just sounds like a captain now.

    I'm sure we have talent that is yet to shine. I can't wait to see who stands up to be counted this year and I hope we have at least a couple of those coming through that end up the talk of the NRL this year. In my books that will be a positive we can build on.

    Finally he admits that he will be a 6.

    However, it sounds very Hindy like and he actually used to be in the team of talents side.

    Hope this captaincy changes his view on things and makes him a super player

    I reckon we will see some guys thrive this year and by the end we will posses talent we never thought we had

    Manly starting pack for round one.

    Is our starting pack really that bad? Are we really that far behind in playing talent ?

    We all know that Fui is one of the best forwards in the game and if Mannah plays like he did the year before last and Lussick and Allgood step up we will be sweet.

    I can see Horo having a great year and becoming the next Eel that got away. Buhrer is nothing better then a solid utility player, I don't know why he gets the wraps he does. Who is Brenton Lawrene??

    That is a very weak Manly starting pack. Good point made.

    Horo had his chance, good luck to him if he excels elsewhere.

    Manly are without King and Stewart, so keep in mind that's not their full strength pack.
