    Fantastic team effort from start to finish. Energy was great all night, 91% completion rate in the wet!!! Regardless of who the bloody coach is or whatever rubbish that is going on I just want to see my team have a bloody dig every week and tonight that was bloody brilliant. Not one bad player and effort like that will see the team win a few more games and shoot up the ladder. Well done The mighty red V. EAD Manly :thumbsup_tone1:

    On today's performance YES! I've always said, new coach and everything would be much better. The only problem is that the Club can't announce that Flanagan is pulling the strings because of the terms of his suspension.

    Tonight's performance even further convinces me that Ravalawa would make a great centre.

    That was the best game of footy I have seen from us in a very long time.
    The balance of the team looked right, the forwards built a platform, the defense was strong, no dumb forced offloads, few handling errors, the kicking game was astute and Hunt and Clune steered us around the park beautifully.
    And almost nothing beats the joy of seeing us lap Manly at Jubilee Oval.
    Another thing, for me, that comes out of this game is that we must re-sign Josh Kerr, He is a beast.
    Well done to all 17. Bloody great team effort.

    Great effort from the boys and we jump four other teams in 11th. Our defence won us the game, the combo of Hunt at 9 with McInnes at lock has really tightened up our middle. Hunt 51 tackles, no misses where at 7 he missed about 6 or 7 tackles a game, born hooker.
    Just a shame it wasn't 34 - 0, the Thompson try could have been a penalty to us because Ravalawa was held back and prevented from a clean shot at what could have been a try saver if he got there a second earlier.
    I know Tariq is just back from injury but he needs to pick up his workrate quite a bit or make way for Fuimaono and play off the bench.
    Have we turned a corner, our defence is on the up even in the games we've lost and we showed tonight we can trouble the scoreboard off the back of that defence. Good signs. That wasn't Maryball they were playing out there, that's obvious.

    Great win tonight.
    Was a good feeling towards the end there when they finally laid some points on.
    We don't see that too often these days but hope there's more of it.

    Hunt, has this great ability to steer a team around the park, when he plays 9.

    He has this calmness about his play from dummy half but keeps up a good ruck speed pace and can explode at will.

    I've noticed this in his rep games at 9 and I saw it again tonight.

    He just ran the show.

    He owned the second half.

    Well played Sir...

    When we got to 18-4 I loved the freedom they played with.. Shades of 2010 , eyes up footy in attack backed by solid defence..
