ManlyBacker by name and a Manly Backer by nature. But I won't be throwing the readies on this week. Firstly, well done to Brett if he gets the confirmation of a start tonight. But that gives us Kite, Bell, Lyon and perhaps Stewart backing up. No starters are Travis Burns (pneumonia)a and Matt Ballin (groin). Add to that list the Ox, Choc and Matai all having the flu and Beaver having his first game in almost 3 months. I can see a win but this is not going to be a walkover. For those who are thinking all doom and gloom after the loss to the Panfers consider this, the bookies have us @ $1.02 for a top 4 spot. Now that makes me feel good.
