What a frustrating game in many ways. Started super & should have led by more with direct running & support in all directions. Yes there was 2-3 held up, a shocking call against Matai along the way, but the attack went back to some bad habits as the game went on. Lost that direct running game from the opening 20 mins & seemed to be sideways, allowing their defence to really slow down the play the ball area. Seemed to want to go around them instead of through which early on , showed plenty of success & had them backpeddling. Then just as their walls were about to collapse in, started to drift across to help their cause. The scoreboard was not a true indicator & those piggy back penalties they repeatedly got 1st half on the 5th & 6th tackle, saved a 16 point lead to Manly at the break. In perspective Manly owned 60 minutes of that game but looking back, the attack that was doing the damage early, seemed to vapourise on the back of some bad calls, desperate Souths defence & general frustration.
