Manly are still in this contest early against the Warriors. Credit to Des’ men they still haven’t conceded after 20 minutes of play and have defended impressively.
Skipper Daly Cherry-Evans is playing on the front foot, opting to kick early and put the pressure back on the Warriors as he desperately looks to steer his troops to their first win of the season.
“Confidence is so badly needed by Manly,” Fox Sports caller Matt Russell said. “They’re in a big big hole.”
A win would go a long way to relieving the pressure of Des Hasler who had a week in the headlines after reports Manly powerbrokers were considering bringing Paul green into the fold to help behind the scenes.
