It's funny how little I care about Manly these days. Still have some of the worst fans in sport though.

Happy Bill is getting rested. Hopefully we do the same with Smith.

Ditto. Certain things in life were meant to be a given: death, taxes, hating Manly. I think the Sharks are doing a good job of picking up where they left off though...

If you are ever feeling like your hate for Manly is subsiding, go on social media and read the rubbish their fans come out with. Particularly read comments relating to any story about Melbourne... The hate will very quickly return. The worst fans in the comp.

Sharks are right up there these days, agreed.

Haha yea they're pretty rubbish. Most of them live in a bubble. And only between the years of 08-11.

With Manly being pretty good and enjoyable to watch you'd think that would be different.

I do myself a favour and stay away from these numbnuts - it keeps my blood pressure under control

Read yesterday that it's a pain threshold thing and they aren't concerned about further damage. He's a machine so it shouldn't surprise anyone that he'll play.

If it wasn't his 350 at home... there's no way they'd play him. I don't like that his selection is based on that. We have bigger fish to fry in September, and if he tears it fully and misses the season, the Club will have insane amounts of explaining to do!

I would play Hughes at 1 and Munster at 6. Eddie is on fire at five eighth, and Jahrome has done so well in both his stints at fullback.

Does anyone have any sort of definitive info re Tohu ? I have read knee, I have read shoulder.. he did not rate a mention in Frank's injury report on the website.

Munster's got too much momentum at 6 to be moved right now. Hughes is a better performer at 1 than Jacks at five eight.
Don't like the thought of Marty Tapau running head on Smith in his current state.

Agree with RobbieRoss and bula: Munster to stay at 6, Hughes to 1. I love Jacks but we've seen how devastating Munster can be at 6 and I love seeing his passing and kicking game develop with each new opportunity.
