David Furner is copping plenty from Raiders fans. In fact they have been brutal on the leagueunlimited forum and one can only wonder how much more they can take if the losses continue to pile up. Well, my very good friends from our nation's capital, you better prepare to suck it up for one more week as a full strength Manly team puts the sting from last week's painful loss right back into you.
The home side has young and talented halves surrounded by experienced campaigners who will seize this opportunity to strangle the life out of a struggling opponent. Furner has made a few changes mid-week to put an end to these struggles but the visitors' general lack of testicular fortitude in defence will be their undoing. Keep an eye on Anthony Watmough as he reminds rep selectors he is healthy and willing. A big test of pride for the Raiders.
