Re: Round 16: 30.06 (Thu 19:50) Manly Sea Eagles v Melbourne Storm

Would have been good if Nelson and Brandon did that in the first half and not when the result was sealed.

Re: Round 16: 30.06 (Thu 19:50) Manly Sea Eagles v Melbourne Storm

Paps has earned the right to be the goal kicker when healthy but it was odd to see him take over at the end there after it looked like the plan would be for Meaney to take the kicks. Maybe it was Paps trying to take ownership or some responsibility?

Re: Round 16: 30.06 (Thu 19:50) Manly Sea Eagles v Melbourne Storm

Was there anything about Tui being injured last night? He wasn't good but only played 25 minutes. He's not really kicked on as much as I thought he would. There were signs in previous years of him being the workhorse of the forward pack but he's just another guy out there for us atm. Outside of Nels...

Re: Round 16: 30.06 (Thu 19:50) Manly Sea Eagles v Melbourne Storm

I hate to call it but this team’s completely lost its identity. Even at their worst a few years ago the Storm wouldn’t be leaking tries like this and would fall back on defence and grit to grab a game back. Everything now is about the cute plays - the attempt at an offload close to the try line, th...

Feel like this is easily our worst defensive team for a good while.

Re: Round 16: 30.06 (Thu 19:50) Manly Sea Eagles v Melbourne Storm

Will be pleasantly surprised if the attack looks on song in this one given everything going on. I doubt he will play but Nikorima would give us an actual half option and someone who can take the pressure off Hughes on 5th tackles. Happy Paps is back. Hopefully it doesn't take him too long to find hi...

Re: Rep Round

QLD actually handled themselves alright in the stretch of random calls and being a man down. They couldn't turn the tide though and everything got a bit too much. Felt like the entire second half was played inside their 40 metre line. Klein is such a bad ref (for both teams). Always feels like he ha...

Re: Rep Round

Howarth is a strong ball runner and had a couple of nice passes but looks pretty disinterested on defence. He’s at times actively not gone in to make a tackle.

Some nice touches from Pezet with NSW really dominating the play since their first try.

32 mins for Smith. His second stint was only the last 10 minutes and was at hooker.
31 mins for NAS. Came on in the last 4 minutes to finish the game.

Be nice to know what's going on there.

Re: Storm v Broncos

Harry’s passing has been average at best tonight. Not much zip to them and a ton off target.

Re: Storm v Broncos

Has Olam forgotten how to tackle? Can’t work out why he never realises that if you give your opposite number room on the outside they’re going to eventually step back in and beat you. He’s been pretty fortunate so far with Staggs. This is by far the leakiest defence we’ve have for some time. We’re ...

Re: Storm v Broncos

There’s one of those kicks we have so much trouble with.
