Manly's Attack A lot has been said about our defence this year and justifiably so - it is very improved. (It needed to and well done to Des and the boys for making it happen.) Our metre game is also improved. What I have noted though is that all our tries bar the turnover against the Warriors have been scored from plays in the opposition 22. It appears to me that we are not as much of a long distance threat and that our backs are still not combining effectively as yet. It seems to me that with the potential and speed of Stewart and Donald plus the wide running ability of Menzies and Watmough we should be much more potent.
