    No Moylan and probably no Edwards.
    It will be a big ask but surely we play better than last week and Manly feel the effects of last weeks physical effort.

    In my opinion: at most we play with heart but still lose.

    I wonder how many bombs we will put up? Will it be more or less than the amount of times we get tackled with the ball on last?

    I'm feeling pumped for this.Manly will do a St George and wilt after a bruising encounter.And with Manly's Lussick tripping charge,he will miss next week because of priors.

    A different Panthers mindset will turn out on Saturday. And after that win,we play either Easts or Brisbane...hopefully with Moylan making a special guest appearance.

    We seemed to have returned to the old 'stand so flat the ball cant get past the halves" structure so I predict we will play a little better(its hard to get that owned two weeks in a row) but still look clueless with the ball and lose comfortably.

    Thats my concern. No Moylan and no Edwards = clumsy in attack.
    Cleary can't do it all. I wish he would stop getting tackled on the 4th.

    That'd be nice. He looks genuinely lost on the 4th most times.

    Drop Wallace at the least. He's clearly not fit. Play 1 of Rein Katoa or even Egan if they must but we need a fit 9.

    Do Manly really have to overcome a bruising encounter. Didn't look all that bruising for them.

    Hey guys, doddsy here.
    I saw mez at the club on Sunday arvo and I asked him who he would prefer to play.
    Straight away with no hesitation he said manly.

    The team are pissed off with what happened. I'm not confident at all but I must say his comment instilled me with confidence.

    Got my tickets, bring on Saturday - I predict EDWARDS will play

    Second half suggested that Manly looked spent.I doubt they'll back up for next week.

    Yes they'll also have to get past the mental part where they feel like they've already done enough.

    Prevention of stupid dumb penalties that will piggyback Manly downfield.

    A decisive kicking game. Griffin needs to coach both Wallace and Cleary in their positioning during the 3rd and 4th tackles,to prepare and decide who is going to take the optional 4th or 5th tackle kicks.

    At times,Cleary does get ahead of himself,and gets a bit flustered,so he has to be mindful.

    Kick to the corner and peg Manly in to force errors.If properly implemented,those errors will come,and come often.

    And unsettling tactics. The likes of CHN and the other young team players need to show restraint if the niggle gets put on.Their inexperience could be a telling factor in this game if they get caught up in retaliation.

    In hindsight it really was a masterstroke from the GG Bros to punt TMM.
