    Yes Hunt needs to practice more on passing. I am sure that McInnes and he are working on it.

    Not a bad prediction, although Aitken didn't score two tries, just the one

    Honestly, ever since that horrible Bulldogs loss where it appeared Mary was gone any minute and they took away some of his influence, the team has actively improved in just about every area. Even in defeat against Roosters and Canberra we were well in the match until late.

    While not pretending we are a threat just yet, we are in the mix for one of the lower top 8 spots at least. We have a pretty alright draw coming up too

    First time in recent memory i've been compelled to replay an entire match. Maybe we are just starved of good footy but it was even more impressive on the re-watch.

    I could watch the Dufty, Lomax and Norman try on loop for an hour straight and I’d be a happy little vegemite. Maybe throw in Ravalawa’s bone rattlers too

    “ Geezese H Chrust ! Some of you plonkers talk as if we have one hand on the premiership trophy already . If there is one thing that I have practiced in my exemplary coaching career and that is to take small steps at a time . “

    “ Between you and I ( and no damn further ) , I have now just about ‘ Marynized ‘ that scallywag Flanagan into my way of thinking , so from this point on you will see a marked improvement in each of our games . But remember - don’t put the carrot in front of the cart - or is that the cart in front of the donkey , er whatever you know what I mean , as the premiership will be ours - one of these years . “

    “ See ya at next weeks game - yuk , yuk . :no_mouth:

    Hoops said on 360 that Flanno was originally the defence coach but has since been handed the attack role also, which explains my opinion of the added excitement from Flanno standing over McNOIDEA's shoulder.
    Not saying McNOIDEA doesn't want to win. He just wishes it was his doing......

    Flanno is the coach .
    Mary is the Clayton's coach (the coach your having when your not having a coach)

    Would you say Flanagan is now "Marynated"?

    It seems to me that the more influence Flanagan has on the team and the less influence Mary has on the team, the better our team performs.

    I'd say we have just been starved of a good coach for the last 9 years. Flanagan is > Price + Mary.

    Bennett was pre-occupied with his move to Newcastle in 2011. Although I do recall we were odds-on to win the 2011 premiership prior to SOO and were favoured so much that the Bookies were paying out at a discount so early in the season.

    Same and the thing I noticed most was the visible uplift in intent after 20-odd when Kerr and Merrin came on.

    Good signs.

    Not that Vaughan wasn't good, he was, particularly in his second stint...

    Vaughan has been on beast mode lately. 53 mins vs Manly, let’s get him up to 60-65 mins each week
