Adam Elliott discusses Manly, Josh Reynolds and the final three weeks.
What are your thoughts on Manly?
They have shown this year that they are a really good side. They have plenty of players in their side that are on the up in their careers and they also have a few established players in their squad as well that can be threats all over the park. We need to be on our ‘A’ game come Sunday.
What’s the mentality for a side who can’t make the finals?
We want to build some momentum for the start of next season and bring a bit of joy to the team.
How important will a win be for the playing group?
We have such a good team and such a good roster. To be sitting where we are is really disappointing and to be losing games and sitting inside the dressing rooms is never a good feeling. There is a few people departing this year and combine that with our members and fans, we really owe it to them to finish the season strongly.
How has Josh Reynolds pulled up?
All of us are really hoping Josh can strap the boots on for at least one more time for the team. We would love to give him a better send off than we did last weekend. If he can get out there one more time, I’m sure we will do our best to give a good send off.
How much will Josh be missed?
He’s great for everyone within the team and some of these boys are his best mates. He’s good for the younger players coming through and he is good at bringing the best out of people. He’s going to be sorely missed.
