Just reported on Parra website http://parraeels.com.au/news/news1833.shtml
i honestly dont think they have a point in them against us without mateo. Maybe a try from a kick with a lucky bounce
like the Sharks did
Denis Fitzgerald: Manly could beat Parramatta by 40 http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/sport/nrl/story/0,26799,24013208-5006066,00.html
other injured Parramatta players would be assessed today including prop Josh Cordoba (abdomen),halfback Brett Finch (hamstring strain) as well as prop Fuifui Moimoi (corked knee).
just like the roosters smashed the titans last friday....
I don't want to be too cocky, but Mateo is seriously the only player in that side creating anything in attack. Without him I can't see how they are going to score a point on current form. Complacency is our biggest enemy this week, I hope the boys can stay up after the big effort on Saturday.
looking over the past two weeks, manly have played really good football, football that you normally see sides reserve for the semis, Dessies attitude of 1 game at a time will help the team stay focused when they play team of less skill.
One thing about Parra is their two guns from last year are playign well below their best; - Inu has 2nd year syndrome (ableit due to injury) - Hayne is still having nightmare about his Kings X incident Apart from that their forward is ordinary, fui Fui has come to the pack due to the reduction in interchanges whislt the others are way past their best.
