This untested backrow of Green & Brown will have a huge impact on the outcome Friday night The boys up front in Jake, Myles are reliable & will hold their own - proven on form from 2015 Kapow is just a brute & will simply play tough footy & imo, roam about creating chaos in tight & on the edges - right & left , though that supreme right fend is best used on the left edge.... Thing is - Brown played much of 2015 as a utility often shifted to the centres & his 2nd row partner was a centre/winger - mainly in NSW cup!! Its a scary thought that these 2 outside backs are facing off in the 1st game in the forwards!! *Shows a few things - Barrett has plenty of faith in the toughness of the other big boppers to handle the muscle of a rugged pack in the Dogs. *The coaching staff at Manly are giving players a go on form - not pet favourites *Barrett has a game plan that can expect high tempo - quickness across the park & meeting an area we have recently gone downhill - keeping up with the speed of todays game - often looking slower than our opposition... Brown has played for NZ in the backrow & could really prove a super buy & Green....well maybe be that bigger faster backrower who can actually break the line. Add Leary to that replacement backrower & he also adds that agile style. Really keen to see Brown & Green do well & be a massive part of the new Manly side come Friday...I know plenty are apprehensive with Barretts call, but imo he has it right & will prove that in 2 days.....burning the Dogs with game speed, particularly late in both halves.
