    Because we haven't got a game the week before, it might be a good chance to take the top squad for a short camp before the game.
    Getting away from all distractions for 5 days or so might be just the way to start the season off well.

    To be honest I just want to see visible improvement and the boys competing hard for 80 minutes

    Not to worried about the result

    Win, lose or draw I just want the opposition to limp away knowing they were in a game of footy.

    RHugh89 100%

    Just want to see a stern resilience in defense. I expect as as minimum standard to see as lot of effort, and im hopeful but not confident of seeing technical improvement in how they control the ruck and communicate in defense

    I would be stoked to see the boys defend like a quality side. More than if they were able to score heaps of points

    The signings we got for this season makes me feel more promised about our younger talents. 2018-2019 we will be a good side and to the future.

    What's the bet we get stuck with Henry Perenara...

    I think it's inevitable we'll struggle to win this game but as Rhugh said if we show signs of improvement especially defensively and stick it out for a solid 80 minute performance I'll be happy.

    Yeah thats what worries me Johnson is a freak but not a general ...Foran imo is both and with Foran playing the leader Johnson could be anything. Im a big Foran fan and i think he is just what the warriors have been missing ...The warriors will be a completely different side this season with Foran there....imo Manly let the wrong half go if they had to let one go at all .


    Luke , Johnson , Foran and RTS that's now a complete spine how would you like to have that spine at the Knights ....I hope Foran doesn't get to start his season till rd 2 ...

    Unfortunately for Manly they actually let Cherry go and put Foran as there number 1 man, foz then used there offer to get the one he wanted at parra whom he then kicked in the guts and walked out.
    Great player but a bit of a crunt if u ask me.
    Manly were then very desperate and threw the bank at cherry whom is laughing at them now cause no matter what happens he will get 10mil over 10yrs with or without being a star he can be.
