They just never managed to settle into a groove, and they looked sluggish and like they were playing at half the speed of the Storm.
Inglis had a blinder, what a talent.
Well done Storm, you looked like you belonged in the GF, unfortunately Manly didn't
Seems they saved their worst game of the season for GF day
Everything you said is true
Beaver panicked everytime he touched the ball, Watmough...jesus i could go through the whole team with exception of Matai who played ok especially in defense.
Manly wont win a GF without a 5/8, Lyons always looks dangerous at centre but he def aint a 5/8.
It will be the same top 4 next year.
It was a sucessful year for Manly so im proud
