Did Manly actually come back on the field after the halftime break?
Souths had a mountain of posession throughout the whole game, fatigue would have played a huge factor.
At 18 - 6 down, Souths had 6 repeat sets of 6 on Manly's line and didn't even look like scoring. I was certain then that we would not only lose, but lose by more than 12.
I think Souths just wanted the win more tbh. Win or lose and Manly would still be 2nd on the ladder, Souths had to win to keep control of their own destiny.
Souths best win since reinstatement!
