    Klemmer has been a bit down on form recently.
    I'd like to start with a couple of angry Saf's and throw out Klemmer with a point to prove after 20.

    Dan was trash today, if anyone is going to the bench it's him

    It would be interesting to know if any of the reserves had a blinder.
    I noticed Moga and Saulo both warmed up with firstgrade, so I suppose they didn't get a chance to put a case forward.
    Jones and Randall or probably the only two who could have forced the coach's hand by having a blinder.

    Randall to hooker, McCullough/Hoy to bench. How McCullough is still starting hooker after Randalls debut, and his lack of ability is beyond me. We crucified Levi for less. No running game, terrible service & seriously, how many times are our forwards going to end up at first receiver in attacking position.
    Only thing he offers over Randall is experience, and at the moment I don't see it.

    Best in for Shibs, and at this stage im not seeing Hoy offer anything off the bench outside of utility value. other than that id 100% let all the forwards make amends in a week. im positive OBI will be ripping them a new one

    3. Moga 4. Best 14. Crossland
    Lee, Pearce, McCullough all need a rocket, DSaf needs consistency across 2 halves. Most of team struggling really. Broncos game wasn’t as cruisy as they made out

    Most of all the line breaks and sneaky ruck plays have been all our forwards in the cowboys game. I really want to see Pearce and Ponga combos happening. Its like they in second gear since the break.
    We saw some of the plays in the Tigers game but for me now playmakers have to step up (we alittle predictable). Our forwards have been great all year the best i seen in a long time the flashy playmakers need to reward them.
    Credit to the Cowboys came in with a game plan which no doubt Manly will use to limit Ponga with the ball.

    5. Hunt
    6. Mann
    7. Pearce
    8. Klemmer
    9. McCullough
    10. DSaf
    11. Fitzgibbon
    12. Barnett
    13. Ese’ese/Glasby

    14. Randall
    15. JSaf
    16. Sione
    17. Jones/Guerra/Glasby (pending HIA)

    Best auto pick over Shiba, Barnett straight back in to stiffen up our defence, Randall on the bench to give Hoy a rest, Ese to start at lock and Jones on the bench for Glasby if he’s out.

    Ponga, Lee, Pearce, McCullough, DSaf need a rocket up the anus after that Barry of a game.
