    That wasn’t forward but why throw it? He is nowhere to go.

    Manly have a very average backline apart from Tom Turbo, but their forwards push hard and fast and get them in position to finish.

    Simple really, that's what we do to recruit in age football in the juniors.

    By the way, Mau is a pelican in defence these days , pretty much like Tepai.

    I have no problem with it being called forward, but I totally agree - why throw it?

    There was nothing on for Parry.

    Jorge Tafua is handy.

    Moses Suli is a beast, and would walk into our backline, imo.

    Parker, and the other dude, are average.

    We need to get forwards who can control the ruck.

    No, no - I don't think it was forward.

    I meant that I had a bigger issue with Moses throwing it in the first place, because nothing was on.

    But who cares if he threw it? Players throw balls all the time hoping for the best, we were desperate and hoping for anything to go our way.

    I sometimes think we like to criticise players for the sake of it, how many times do playmakers touch the ball a game? Thruston used to throw plenty of stupid passes too but when the ball goes to you all the time you are not always going to produce gold........
