Well, we all know Canberra have been touted as Wooden Spoon morals blah, blah blah. We also know this means they will lift in the face of adversity - with a point to prove. I've been thinking on it, and if I'm a betting man, I'd suggest that I bet our forwards are going through exactly the same scenario. The fans, The Commentators, The Critics etc etc have ALL said our forwards are our weakness. I know that if I was King, Rose, Bryant, Stewart, Willow etc, I'd want to go out, and absolutely prove everyone wrong, and DEMAND respect from the opposition and the fans. So what may be a blessing in disguise for Canberra, may well be a blessing down at Narrabeen Sports Academy as well. Thoughts guys? NB: Whenever Manly is under the pump, even in the very lean years - one thing I noted was our fighting spirit (after being smashed by Panthers, coming out and belting The Knights the week after for example). I know I'm a pessemist, but I bet our forwards will go out this year with a point to prove, as well as playing for their personal careers.
