God help us. The only selection that bemused me made by Manly is only playing with the 2 specialist props. Perhaps they believe that our prop rotation can be sufficiently handled. Time will tell
Last 2 games Eisenhuth's stats have been laughably bad. WTF is going on? I guess at this point we can be glad BMM isn't in the 17.

It would appear that the coach likes Eisenhuth's defensive stat's he's made 111, avg 37 tackles a game, missed only 4 so 1.33 per game. Even I admit that is very good. However his attacking stat's are awful, he avg 7.67 hit ups a game for an avg of 40m that's about 5m so never makes the advantage line. He scored 4 tries in the 2021 season and non since. So the coach has to balance the plus v the minus. He's not going to scare the opposition in attack.

Also his tackles are weak. He tackles around the legs. Not effective anymore. They get quick play the balls.

Legs tackles have always been the go but nowadays you have to have two in the tackle if you have those defenders tgat are old school and tackle around the legs. That should be part of your defensive structures

That's what happened with the Chad Townsend try. Ran straight through BMM's attempted tackle, Eisenhuth went for a legs tackle, Townsend kept the legs pumping, dragged Eisenhuth to the line and fell over it.

Eisenhuth is the result of the 10 year-old or more idea that an import from Melbourne has to be good. Even if Melbourne didn't want him anymore.

Smith and Widdop were good for us but yeah, no idea why Flanno wanted Eisenhuth and don't like him continuing to pick Eisenhuth not only in the 17 but in the run on 13. No wonder he only makes 5m per hit up. Opposition packs must be secretly laughing seeing Eisenhuth charging at them.

Maybe Eisenhuth startIng in the second row and JDB lock. Common sense prevails. Though I'd go Luch, RFM second row and JDB lock.
Me too. Eisenhuth makes tackles but doesn't stop them falling on their fronts, getting quick play the balls.

Early stat's show us how dire our situation is in our lack of go forward in our pack. So far 332 players have run metres in the comp. This is our rankings out of the 332:

M Molo - 132nd
Lawrie - 164th
JDB - 168th
Su'a - 180th
F Molo - 184th
RFM - 200th
Eisenhuth- 256th
BMM - 267th

The top forward ranking is of course
AFB - 11th
Yeo - 26th
Radley - 30th
Tapine - 34th
Paulo - 36th

In my day the old saying was forwards win games, the backs decided by how much.

I think we have to give this a few more weeks. If any of those forwards was put through a gap, ran for 40m, or was took and intercept and ran for 40m or something like that, it would badly skew this stat at this early stage of the season.

It is my understanding that he won't be with us next year. Have you any insight?
Last I was told he had not made a decision.
We tabled an offer so have other clubs but he was waiting to later in year to make a call.
I would say he's not happy with the offers and want his form to show he's worth more.
