Apart from us being Manly and expecting and are used to success lets have some perspective whether we like it or not. At the beginning of the year most of the pundits and so called experts labeled us an ageing squad on the decline with no depth. We'd lost Kite, Joe, Richie, George coupled with Snake, Choc, Gifty, Matai etc were a bunch of old crocks and we hadn't bought anyone of note. We would struggle to make the eight let alone make the top four they said, we were like a punch drunk boxer getting in the ring against the young buck, yesterday's team they said. Well, we finished equal 1st with the competition favourites and reigning premiers. We are Manly and we've done it again, given them all the big middle finger and it's our time of year -semi final time and the experts are again righting us off again. We've only got to win three more games to take the title and even if we lose tonight we've still got to win three more games. Bring it on and keep enjoying the ride people, whatever happens over the next few weeks they've given us another stellar season.
