    I picked the Cows for the comp at the start of the year. IMO they have one of the best on paper sides going around. They have the best half in the game, the best starting front row, a fantastic fullback who's in career best form, a backrow that has both impact and hardwork (despite the loss of Tariq) and edges with speed power and experience. Obviously the game isn't played on paper but I reckon they're a real shot this year, possibly the best chance they'll have for a good while.

    Yeah I put a huge bet on them not far into the season at massive odds; it's a running joke on another forum that I'll be able to retire if they win the comp. I still don't think they'll actually do it because their defence is poor in a very areas and they inexplicably turn to **** whenever they travel to Sydney, but they're certainly a better chance than the 32/1 or whatever odds I got for them.

    They have trouble in Sydney, but Manly hardly bring the biggest, most vocal crowd in the business. If they get through that they won't be back in Sydney before the GF.

    I'm sure if it didn't take 2 hours to get to SFS more Manly fans would turn up. It actually quicker taking double the distance to go to ANZ, then SFS.

    I'll be there as I was with 15k plus that made the trip to ANZ and made the trip to SFS last year for the corresponding game.

    The public transit issue is all the locals fault here as they don't want a train line in the area. But if they had a direct bus to SFS, I'm sure more fans would make the trip across. Anyone that doesn't work in the city is going to struggle to get the game before kick off from Manly.

    It is all a moot point as it finals and should go to matches to support our team. But the NRL and SFS should make it easier to access the ground.

    Loving the us being written off, was danger going into the finals as favourites.

    Burher will play in the centres for Manly and Oldfield will come onto the wing and Whare in the centres. It not Lyon and Matai, but they are all first grade standard, definitely not premiership though. Reckon we can get through one game without them. T-rex won't get moved into the centres. They play K.Foran in centres before him and his brother in the halves.

    That may be the single worst video ref decision ever made. Unbelievable.

    Yes, it has a place...but the bod going to the attacking side doesn't. It's something I just can't understand.

    I won't comment on the 1st one as I haven't seen it, but I perfectly understand the 2nd one being given BOD. As the AFL review system has shown time and time again this season, it's ****ing hard to positively identify a slight touch of finger onto the ball...my problem is that if you can't be certain it's a legitimate try, you shouldn't hand it out. I'd flicked over to the NRL so I was watching it live, and as soon as I saw it was coming down to the touch of the finger on the ball, I knew it was being given. You just can't be certain.
