How good was Tom.
I was terribly hungover on Sunday, I needed something to inspire me, something to entertain me and Tommy Turbo delivered.
That stretch just after half-time was some champagne footy.
Now I should add, I backed Manly @ half-time, they trailed 20-12 and were a bit sloppy in the first 40 minutes.
Dessy obviously helped clean that up @ half-time and Brookvale was rocking.
Everyone's talking about who's the best fullback in the competition, there's 4 obvious stand outs that can change a game.
KP for the Knights is the only QLD'er on that list.
The others are of course Tedesco, Papenhuyzen & Trbojevic.
When Tommy Turbo is on, he's probably the best of the lot.
It's of course just the injuries that have slowed him down so when you're talking about long-term contracts and who you'd want on your roster, you have to be careful.
But that would go close to one of the best individual performances I've seen, not only just from a fullback but from any player in any position.
How does Freddy fit them all in for the Blues?
An embarrassment of riches and yet, the Maroons will still win!
This week, the Sea Eagles play the Magic Round main game against the Broncos on Friday night, the Broncos are getting better but if Manly show up with the sort of attack they showed in the second half yesterday, it might be a fairly quiet night on Caxton St.
Manly can do anything when Turbo is firing.
After a horror start to the year, they've managed to creep up to 9th on the ladder.
The Sea Eagles sit @ $1.70 to make the Top 8 this year, which means if you take that, you're basically backing Turbo's hamstrings to stay strong for the rest of the year.
If they do, the $1.70 is like stealing money.
Stay fit Tom, stay fit you legend.
