    Talakai and Ronaldo combining for about 8 points in the second half is a reminder of what can happen with outside backs.

    Sheer craziness from Fitz. They should have put up 60 points, not heavily lost the 2nd half without scoring again!

    Well that was insane. Well done all who got on Talakai. 

    I won’t be chasing him though not at that price.

    Teams will be much more heavily marking him now too.

    More TBs and Offloads Smile

    Looking forward to him having God-like status and getting the extra imaginary points that Cleary, Turbo and Teddy get Smile

    Must have been watching different games
    Manly played with the wind and had more energy in the second half
    Soft tries in the middle with Mcinnes/Rudolf off (Williams/AFifita didn't play well)
    Take the win and move on or as the old cliche is a "Game of two halves"

    The only difference was, first half they passed the ball to the left edge, in the 2nd half they didn't. Would have just kept on trucking if they followed the first half game plan into the second half.

    Have you ever played into the wind?
    Manly got on a roll and had all the field possession and momentum

    Sharks were having complete sets in Manly's half without Talakai touching the ball! Not sure what game you were watching. The commentators were talking about it.

    Booze is right. Sharks clocked off in defence for two early tries and Manly got a roll on, that was the difference.

    Sharks still went left often enough when they had the ball but Manly also cut off the Kennedy to Talakai pass better and Koula wasn't on his heels like Harper. And that was in ten minutes of coaching from Des not a week of preparation.

    But the main difference was Sharks' middle defence not its edge attack.

    Key takeaways from Des' press conference:

    -Schuey due back in the next couple of weeks, no delay in the rehab but had a big operation on the ankle
    - Turbo round 9 at the earliest
    - Morgan Harper "lives to fight another day, Des admits he was abit underdone from covid but still no excuse"
    - Dyl Walker and Paseka won't play next week

    Well done Talakai train riders. (especially Matt who has been pumping him up since the Knights game).
    Another missed cash-cow / potential keeper, along with May for the Bludgers.
    This is where my Fantasy chops break down, identifying the players who are on a hot streak early enough to pick them up cheap. (I remember missing Ponga in his 1st season, Hess and To'o) 
    Went with BroJo instead of May.
    Mann rather than Talakai as well.
    I won't be using 2 trades to get a high $600k centre. 
    Stick to the plan, it's Rd. 7.

    Time to change the scoring to bring Talakai back to the pack

    Nerf every scoring category and put kick metres back up

    Des went the whole interview without saying the name Talakai once, unbelievable! Totally ignored him and the influence he had on the game....until the last 15 seconds when pushed on the topic by the journos.

    I'm really tempted to bring Turbo in when he is back. Has 2021 vibes about it, could easily have a season of 2 halves.

    Fitzgibbon blaming second half on the 5 day turn around. Trying to downplay the first half and Talakai too as well lol under the radar he’s trying for but they’re not....


    Also said Talakai might not stay at centre spoke highly of Tracey has good combos there etc..... and that playing Sifa in different positions can be good so it’s not all same. Said it’s something he will weigh up when Tracey is back.

    I don’t buy this no Turbo being back as a diehard Bunnies supporter I fully expect Turbo to be named in like the 23 jersey next week. I wouldn’t be shocked if he played.
