Lots of bodies in motion when we're attacking will be the key with Schuster calling the shots. If we run good lines the kid could win it for us on his own. Own it Josh! Go Manly
Perfect game for Schuster to play in, he has complete control of our attacking plays, it's going to be entertaining to watch.
 
Can we lower our expectations a tad, otherwise I fear that this site will be in meltdown at 6 pm

Just sayin’
Id be very happy with a win, but Ponga might be up for it today. I wonder if the game plan for them would be to rush up on Schuster. Big game for Weekes to step up, not really expecting much from Johns.

Gambling companies are not in the business of giving money away - I would think those odds are about right considering our play in attack is mainly driven by DCE & Turbo and our ruck is held together by Jake.

On top of that even if we are not sure about their contribution we are also missing Josh Aloia, Kelma, Woods, Ben T even Zac fulton who may have been a change to get in.

So from the top 30 (i think zac might be there) through rep and suspension at least 8 players....who would also be the majority of our cap

Oooft some of you are lining yourselves up to be really disappointed this arvo. Just be happy if we only lose by 20 points or more. They are pretty much full strength, at home. Long story short, Croker is our Captain today. Take that in for a second.

Maybe a bit over the top but today is must win imo. In such a tight competition you could look back at the end of the year and not getting a win in 2 attempts against a team like the Knights could be the difference between making the 8 or not. If we can’t beat them without our origin players, then we aren’t beating some of the other teams we play over this period and we could easily be out of contention by the time it’s over.
This says it all. Come on Manly, do it without DCE and the Urbo's. Now's the time for Schu, Kaeo, and the young guys to shine. If we can't win today, it's going to be super tough to get in the 8.

Go Manly!
 
This is one of the most inexperienced Manly FG sides in awhile. About 850 FG games across the 17, with only Parker and Garrick each cracking the century.

If they can come away with a win, that will be quite an achievement.
If they keep the score close and still lose, Ill settle for it. But expecting a cricket score in favour of the Knights, with all that Origin experience.

Ponga, Gamble, Hastings will run rings around Weekes, Schuster, Johns. Huge mismatch in the spine. Knights by 26.

I give us a chance in this game. Inexperience a big problem, on the field and on the bench. Daly's long kicking game a big problem to replace. On the other hand, it is not as though Newcastle has been playing particularly well, regardless of how Ponga and Gagai might feel. Go Manly Get In There!
