Im with you on that one gavsta72.
New coach, new players and hopefully some newly injected pride should get us back up there.
I think he's referring to the NSW Blues, not the Auckland Blues.
Unless you were also referring to NSW.
But they shouldn't change many players next year, they were so close to beating QLD at home, they'd be silly to change anything. They were just unlucky.
But gavsta72 is a Manly supporter I believe, so I can't be nice to him this week...
Go The Warriors
So that makes it 2 in the blues column to disappoint this year.
Lets make 2013 the year of the blues!!!!
Nothing wrong with a bit of friendly NRL banter.
Manly sadly have had the wood on the Warriors for a long time. I've managed to destroy the memory of the Grand Final last year through alcohol abuse.
Playing in Perth makes it almost a home game for us, there are so many Kiwis over there these days!
It's a big game for both teams, if we lose it's almost a season ending loss realistically, and as you said, Manly need it to maintain their position.
Brett Stewart has travelled so I'd be surprised if He's not a late inclusion.
Manu as captain is an interesting choice, I love Manu but don't see him as captain material. He already leads by example so doesn't need the (c) next to his name to do that. Hopefully it makes him play better, but we'll have to wait and see.
Blues seem to be cursed at the moment, but at least they're getting closer.
I was expecting some gloating in this thread gavsta
I don't know how a team can lose 2 games in a row after being 18-0 up in both of them. Unbelievable.
It happened 3 days ago and I'm still furious about it.
Big game tonight......Manly take on the Rabitohs at Gosford (Bluetongue)......neutral territory
Will be a good game, the Rabbits are doing very well this season (for once) and Manly need to win to stay in the top 4. I'll be watching it in 3D to see how good the 2D to 3D conversion is on my new Sammy, and cooking up a big batch of popcorn
