    I thought all our props were outstanding last night.  Kite left egg all over Bellamy's face with an outstanding effort - would NSW have lost origin with Kite in the side at White's expense?

    Perry was probably the quietest but was solid.  Bryant had his best game in Manly colours which is a high honour given the opposition.

    Cuthbo repeatedly bent the line and Hall showed he must not be dropped when Lyon comes back.

    Did Willo play last night?

    Agree on Kite, he was great..best on ground, even showed a bit of aggression when that cat Crocker needed a tap in the head. I was disappointed with Perry last night tbh, he didn't offer much in the second half. Maybe he picked up an injury I don't know.

    I was thinking to myself the same thing about LW this morning, he can be ok for us, but If where going to play aggressivly like that I don't think we can afford him a bench spot when King and Lyon are back, that said he was probably the best of the rest as far as choices go for a bench spot last night (i.e a better choose that J.A and Moorewood)

    Willo was solid in defense.

    Kite and Hall were the best props on the field.

    Kite and Hall were both ****ing excellent. I can't believe how well Hall played in the opening 20, and Kite was the best player on the field (possibly behind Slater).

    Kite was awesome, I said before the match that imo Kite and Matai are the 2 blokes that in the past few years have consistently stood up in the big games, and both lived up to that last night

    The best part for me was seeing 1 of the nicest blokes in the NRL, Kite, throwing a few at Crocker

    Kite was the best by a mile. How did Bryant come out after that dirty fantastic facial massage? - I hope that one makes the judiciary.

    Pretty much what I have suggested except I'd start with Cuthbo with Beaver on the bench.  We look smashing when Cuthbo starts and he plays a smarter game too.

    How can you have gone for impact when you have taken our most potent attacker out of his best position Ryan ?

    Beaver?
    Hehehehe
    Regardless of what numbers you put on their backs - I think that 1-6 would be the best, so that our 11-13 positions are optimised.

    Jatz, I could be wrong but I think he may have been talking about now with Lyon out injured, other than that I'm sure that it must have been an oversight by Ryan
