I journeyed up to Skilled Park to watch the match. There was a 13K crowd and half of that was our fans, great turn up, good stadium. They charged 37 bucks to see the game, I was gob smacked. No wonder the Titans fans stay away. Would love to have a stadium like that at Brooky. The boys were slightly off their game. It was hot and humid and all the early defence had an impact especially after half time. The great positive is that Manly stormed home and have that relentless hunger in them again. Stevey Matai and Foran turned the game and when you look at it, we gifted them 8 points. It was a tough game and the Titans will be a force this season, I left the ground feeling that we will really be right up there this season. DCE will get better, hes still young and learninig. The guy to watch is Foram who is in great touch. We look potent down the left side in attack. Defence is still really solid, one try conceded through good play from the Titans and the other from a bad error. When we get Gift back will be a very dangerous team. Tom Symonds will be the buy of the year for us, hes a great find and always good in defence and attack. Tigpies will be a tough challenge, we have to avoid it being a game of touch footy, thats what they like, defence will win the game on Thursday night.
