Loved the shove in the back.... if you gonna stand in the way prepare to get smashed!!I don't know what they're like off the field, but I've loved watching Mannering vs Slater over the years. A fair while ago now, in one particular match, Mannering was a beast with his kick chases to make sure Slater got no room to counter attack, and he fucking nailed him every time - not just making a tackle, but often he absolutely crushed him. You could see how filthy Slater was getting, so it's good to see that the rivalry there is still strong.
On the other hand in the first half Cronk was running block for Slater off a bomb and Hoffman was stopped dead in his tracks..... should have bloody run through the little turd rather than give up the chase!!!
