Cool Manly V Melbourne - Who will win and why?

Who takes this one out?

If I was a betting man (nrgetics eyes will probably light up now), I think the odds are pretty good for Manly because I think this is going to be a really close game.

I think there will be no more than 2 trys scored, Manly's defence has been pretty awesome all year, those ****s are just good at making great tackles and it's very effective. Melbourner's defence is pretty good too.

I think a drop goal could very well decide this one. If I was to have a stab at the 'pick the score' it'd probably be something like..."15 - 14 Manly"

So there it is. I think Manly can squeeze out a win. They are probably the more fitter of the two teams, and if anyone is to score a few points at the end of the game, then it's more likely to be Manly, imo.

God I hope I'm wrong though.


Anyway, it should be a great long weekend, have fun fellas.

Manly - better defense, the sydney factor, Steve Menzies and Matt Orford. Brett Stewart to score the game breaker

I think Manly will win, i just think Melbourne will crack under pressure again. Manly's style is meant for finals footy, and they seem to have a bit more form. I think it will be close game until the last 15 min. With manly coming home too strong. Something like 22 - 12

Manly - if they're on their game they have the ability to contain Melbourne and grind away at them.

I think it'll be a hard tough game with Manly winning by a try (4 or 6 points).

I too think Melbourne will crack under the pressure again - from all accounts, at the GF breakfast yesterday, Melbourne were pretty uptight while Manly were relaxed and easygoing.

Plus I think Slater is still injured.
