Theres been a few ppl keen to put the boot in to Tooves after a few losses & though I have never wavered on rating him as competitive as anyone to play the game, expecting this to rub off on the players as coach will take time. The entire team made all the 1% plays that had been lacking ripping in for the entire 80 minutes - Tooves style. For mine Tooves is a Seaeagles champion who stepped up to the plate in 1 of the darkest hours to keep a sinking ship alive. The signs are there that the trust between the players & coach are now building nicely. Not jumping the gun after a win but there has been threads regarding our close wins, overlooking the flip side that we have also had a sight in every game lost. Lets face it - the game was not a pretty sparkling performance & in many ways it was a gritty, grinding win playing simple effective footy & strangling the opposition into submission - just what we needed. This coach bleeds Maroon & White & deserves full support - Manly lose & he gets a decent spray - win & Tooves gets little mention?? Imo by round 20 he will have this team firing on all cylinders & equal favourites with the Storm.
