Manly has had a rubbish year and I thought I would help the coaching staff by stating why. DEFENCE! Please have a look at the following video. It's a bit old now but as relevant now as ever. http://m.nrl.com/the-breakdown-with-matt-elliott-defence/tabid/10959/contentid/757593/default.aspx After viewing this have a look at one of Manly's games and hit pause every now and then to see where our players are. Our problem is the opposition is allowed to get up and play the ball too fast which in turn doesn't allow our defensive line to get set and push forward. Simple stuff, but it's been like this every game. Whoever the new coach will be should instill the mantra "hold them up, push them back" so our defensive line can get set and then come forward.
