    Most important game of the year :D

    Yet again we are coming up against a side with some momentum and some desperation. But it won't be enough for Drugcastle …

    Fingers crossed King and Matai to return.

    After last night Drugcastle are sitting in 9th, and I am assuming Tigpies will have lost on Friday night before we play on Sunday, this equates to a Dugcastle win getting them into the eight.

    This scenario worries me as they will be motivated for the win, we need to make sure we turn up for this game.

      I dont think we will be ambushed like that again, and as long as we defend like we have the last two weeks then we should beat them. I am more confident with this match than the Souths match

      Knights winning well last night will ensure there is no complacency in the Manly team this round. It's great we've got the opportunity to put a big dent in Newcastle's finals aspirations this Sunday.

      Big Willie to be the villain, Snake the hero. Go Manly!

      Agree - JoeG was involved from the start.

      The 9 day turn around should have freshend up the Manly Boys :angel:

      Looking forward to Wolfie's 6 try first half effort, powered by the Silver Snake :p

        Hell Yes. If he gets 6 he will just about be leading try scorer in the NRL.
        Go Snake and Wolfie. Big games required boys.

        Boyd is the danger. He looks to be finally hitting a bit of form. Finally ..

        Mullen also has harmed us on occasion, it's lucky he doesn't have the spirit of someone like Foran because he certainly has plenty of skills.

          Nullifying Mullen, Boyd, and Gagai is key to winning this game.

          Agreed Boyd looks interested in playing now. Mullen will try to take the line on, Manly need to keep the brick wall D of the past couple of weeks going.

          I wish being full strength on Tuesday afternoon equated to being full strength on the day of the match. There are always changes.

          It's even more silly for Newcastle who played last night to have to nominate a team 18 hours later.

          Tafua v Uate will also be very interesting. I'll be at Brookie and I can't wait to see this match.

          Hmm no reserve prop meaning King should be right to play....

          Whare named means Matai still in doubt i guess...

          Exactly how I read it too. Hope Matai is back though.

          Mullen played a dangerous role last night but if he runs into Gifty a few times he may not be so keen skirting the pack.

          I'm a bit surprised by the big odds on the Knights for this game.

          The knights will shorten late in the week. Our best is way better than theirs but this might just be a let-down week for our players. 3 away wins against big teams was a seriously heavy-duty effort. 10 day break, back at Brookie, suddenly equal faves and everyone and his dog talking us up ... danger danger :s

          [edit: the dog is also talking us up]
