Manly are still a Top 8 team.Yeah well he hasn't proven shit yet.
It's easy to carve up weakened teams. Let's see how he goes against quality opposition.
Not anymoreI am vice versa, I still think Dearden is not ready. The other half we let go would have got at least a try or try assist(s) against Manly's shot defence. Cordner and Mitchell will be barrelling down his way all game, hope the kid steps up big time next week.
No way in hell Macca gets back in if, and it's a massive if we win 5 of the 6 against good sides. As much as Macca is loved and respected by his team mates Seibold has no history with him other than Seibold watching a very poor and losing imitation of Cook. No matter what a doctor told me in those circumstances I'd be telling Macca you need more time to heal and then some time in ISC to get your fitness back. If Turpin keeps going well I don't see a scenario where McCullough rejoins. I'm not saying that's what Seibold will do, just my view.Even if he plays well for the next 5 or 6 rounds, I can't imagine McCullough's reign of terror ending yet.
And did we all enjoy Hunt dropping the drop out?... Good to see he's still got it. ;)On a (slightly) related note: great to see Niko falling on his feet - as some of us predicted - and having a hand in the Warriors final try to put the Dragons away. A good result all around.
I thought Turpin has the better win ratio? Isn't he three starts for three wins? Not saying Turpin is proven as such but a promising start nevertheless. Then there's the back up, back up Segyaro for Seibold to consider how he might go.Funny how Turpin is proven after 1 win, but Siebold isn’t after 3...
I reckon if they had DCE, Tommy Turbo and Fanou Blake they would have.Manly are still a Top 8 team.
We were a bottom of the table team, missing half our spine (Kodi and Macca) and our two leading point-scorers from last year (Isaako and Roberts). And we lost our most consistent player of the season in the 60th minute (Bird).
Yet Manly weren't able to carve us up.
The Turpin charged Broncos beat them last year too.I reckon if they had DCE, Tommy Turbo and Fanou Blake they would have.
Turpin after 3 games: 3 winsThe sample size is the issue...
