Oh! I like the Ray-man but I've just realised he's up against Coates. I think he'll do his best to belt him in general play but the high kicks that will be coming his way all night will not be good.

After Rd 11 Manly are on 11 points. No byes.
After Rd 11 in 2023 Manly were on 11 points. No byes.

After Rd 27 in 2023 Manly finished on 29 points.
That was 3 points behind the 8th placed team on 32 points.

There are 16 rounds remaining for 2024.
Manly has another 16 rounds to get 21 points to reach 32.

Manly get 4 points gifted from the 2 byes.

Meaning counting this week vs Storm, to reach 32 and 8th place Manly must win 9 of the 14 games (or win 8 & draw 1).

If Manly lose 5 more games, forget it. Game over.
We actually have three byes this year - Rounds 13, 17, & 22 so that's 6 free points.

Storm won't risk Hughes for this nothing game. It’s not worth the risk because they know they'll make top 4 easily. They can beat us without him and Munster judging by our halves efforts the last 3 weeks against rookies.

Last year we had a bye in round 2. Don’t we have 3 byes left too? Good insight though. We can’t afford to lose games where we should be winning like last week, raiders, warriors etc. Hoping they’ve just hit a flat spot considering they’ve been travelling so much and been playing every week.

We've been missing Croker tbh, he's that typical Des prototype tackle-pass-bot. His absence has exposed some of the bigger boys lack of lateral speed, it's massively visible behind the ruck in our defensive line.

Idk if we still do the weird centre numbering but I wouldn't be surprised to see Garrick at the back with Koula next to Saab. I was reading somewhere that having "those two who can keep up with each other" is actually a crucial aspect of our attack.

Then again I can see us run out as named, hope Ray puts on some big hits if so. I don't mind if he crosses the line and gets binned, the dude has to be terrorising his side of the field like he does when he's switched on.

Is it me or do others notice that GCKT has a slight delay before delivering the ball.(playing hooker) he seems to hold the ball on the ground for half a second, then passes it. This just slows down the attack.
I think its time to give Humphries a go as an interchange player.

We’re giving the midget a last chance to make it happen,..
