    Good play Gutho, really showing your leadership with that fourth tackle kick.

    I was speaking to my uncle the other day, and I mentioned that I'm genuinely concerned that I will never witness the Eels win a Premiership - and he agreed with me.

    Mind you, he's a Raiders fan, but still - it speaks volumes, imo...

    Imagine if he’d have been off contract when we were coming off a spoon year ...

    There was a comment that our forwards are big enough, just not good at the wrestle. Junior is the one that measures up, Fonua Blake, Sironen and Thompson , even Paseka are considerably bigger that our forwards. It's a simple game, Manly have used iit effectively all season. Get field position from the big forwards and go from there, unfortunately we are In the game when it's fast moving and even possession, today shows what the problem will be in the finals of we get there.

    Recruitment has to acknowledge this. Doesn't help when Fainu is one of our juniors who make the bus trip to Brookvale.

    That was me, mate.

    I'd hardly call Tepai Moeroa, Shaun Lane, Kane Evans, or David Gower small, tbh.

    We can’t defend our errors so there’ll be a try in thirty seconds.

    Sivo’s defensive positioning is shockingly bad

    On the back of a stupid pass from our half.

    Honestly do they want to play in the finals?

    After this performance they dont deserve to.

    I've tried to be positive, and glass half full, like you and Gronk (in fact, I admire your stoic positivity)...

    However, I cannot cop this garbage.

    I know Manly are playing very, very well.

    But we have shown nothing, bar a short, 5-minute period where we threatened to look halfway professional...

    Well, Manly will easily hit 40.

    Can we stop them from scoring 50?

    Can we score any further points?

    Keep tuned, and find out!
