I don't normally start threads but I feel I have to thank Des Hasler for his efforts at Manly. A good coach will draw players to a club like bees to honey and I think the great Des will do this big time for the Eagles. Des is so professional and passionate that even though Crusher does a wonderful job in finding talent I believe he uses Des as the bait to ensure the talent is hooked by the Eagles. I rate Des up there with Bennett and in time he will be regarded as the best coach in Rugby League. No doubt I am preaching to the converted but thank you Des for all the players you have turned around, for all the players who have become champions under your guidence and most of all thank you for being part of a great team that has made the Eagles the successful club they once were. I for one have no complaints, only admiration for everyones efforts. Des, you are the key.
