    Koroisau DCE halves with Walker back at Centre? Think he has done enough?

    For the record i really did post it before the try. Manly look to be firing up now. Though their left edge attack looks poor and Taupau doing nothing. Lawrence has some pace.

    Looks more dangerous than Walker, if he keeps it up for a few more weeks then certainly.

    Yeah I feel like Walker's game has also done him no favours. Killed so many opportunities.

    I'd be shifting Matai to the wing Tafua out (Or dropping Matai all together) and Walker to Ctr with Api partnering DCE. But I'm an armchair so what do I know.

    Well it was a solid performance by Souths though no real offence after the first 20 minutes is worrying.

    Souths did enough to win but if they played anyone with a decent halves pairing that gave early ball or even just some ball to their best attacking weapons they wouldn't have won that game.

    but Manly are already set at centre ? matai to edge backrower ?




    i swear nate myles walks into the line these days, soft as butter with his runs. Manly turned it around when starling (who is a plodder himself) and vave replaced nate and lussick.


    rabbits pack not impressing anyone with how good they made vave and starling look imo

    Manly seem to be suffering from trying to fit all their best players in one team and having one too many centres. All of Stewart, TTurbo, Matai, Lyon, Taufua, Walker and DCE are too good to be playing NSW cup, hence Walker playing out of position. If Korisau goes well it will be at the expense of Parcell when DCE comes back, not Walker.

    parcell at hooker has out played api at hooker by a fair margin so far this year imo

    Even though they are still losing the Titans are looking pretty good at the moment and have throughout the start of the season.

    Really surprised that Roberts has stayed on the field for this long.

    I cant really get into this game. I think its because I know the Broncos are going to win, I just don't know by how much.

    22-4 right now. After the next try, I'm switching over to the PS4.
