    And that my friends is why rugby union is the greatest game of all. May we never lose that contact between the elite level and club footy.

    I am, it's quite and turnover isn't contributing at the moment.
    Boyo even posted Round 18 teams this week.
    Round 18 reviews aren't up yet.
    Everyone is bunkered down.

    I think DB is a little pumped for the semis

    Well done to Mr Beats firsts this afternoon.
    Your team managed to rack up 8 tries against a committed opponent but I could not say that manly played to their utmost potential today.
    This teams potential is massive.
    Good Hunting

    Thanks for that, I had memories of the 2011 semi final so supposedly talked to myself this week.
    Tahs time, be back later.

    4s, Rats turned up and put on a great defensive performance and we couldn't cross their line.
    3s, opened up the scoring and looked hot, had a scrum and we got rocked. Woodies carried a very strong set piece and we seemed to play to their strengths by playing tight. The times our outside backs saw the ball we threatened, we missed the opportunity to play to our strengths.
    1s, 8 tries and leaked one. Will watch tomz and post thoughts

    Solid display over eighty minutes, Telegraph said Blakey gave it a 6.5 and that would be a fair assessment given some of the 20 minute hot performances over the year. The forwards built and played 8 man rugby, great seeing some of the tight mowing backs down in cover defence in the last 5.

    The backs kept their D line in tact, and there was some spark.

    I remember the woods lived offside in our back line last year, let's hope they are kept behind last feet.

    Tahs won with a conversion.
    Woods lost with a conversion.

    Was at Milner today and got to say the Rats certainly took it to the Marlins. Manly found it hard to get the backs into the game through failing to build phases and giving too many turnovers. ALL the forwards have to realise the breakdown is important and when an opposition is attacking it and creating all sorts of problems you have to be prepared to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in. I think the rating would similar to firsts yesterday 6.5 out of 10.

    Great games from Melrose and Maraki with Dombkins again showing up with a high work rate. In the backs Treweek and Woodhouse were the pick. Hingano showed glimpses and will be better for the run. His knee held up well.

    Gordon next week (after they did Uni yesterday) so it will be another physical game. Winner to take on either Uni or Eastwood in the GF (let's hope they beat the crap out of each other).
