    Des was interveiwed by Russell Fairfax. It was on Fox Sports News at lunchtime. Should be replayed throughout the day.

    Mostly light hearted. Even talked about the Parramatta Door.

    Had a funny look in his eye when Fairfax asked if he wanted to finish in as good a position as last year...............Des got very serious and said "we want to be in the mix"

    We won't expect the likes of jumping Jai to get satire.

    Good interview I thought but didn't give a lot away....I have a feeling if we can be relatively injury free this year that we'll have a fair to good year...fair...making the 8...good top 4.

    I'd say 14/16 coaches would think they can win the comp at this time of the year and no coach would say otherwise.  So it's hardly startling that Des is talking confident.  I think he has more reason for optimism than most coaches in the NRL.

    Fortunately no manly coach (while coaching manly) has ever put hands on a wooden spoon

    Des needs a new statistician.  He said Manly lost 6 games by less than 4 points. 

    Manly in fact lost 2 games by less than 4 points, or 6 games by less than 8 points:
    Tigers 4 points
    Parra 4 points
    Titans 2 points
    Parra 7 points
    Canb 2 points
    Doggies 6 points

    You are wrong Rex. Des is correct. Always.

    No doubt you're right SER8.  Des didn't specify grade.  My bad.

    Yes, but if you're in the mix it means that you do not have your hands on the spoon doing the mixing and looking forlornly into the (finals) bowl.
