    THE Sea Eagles have arrived home from England declaring they will overcome their horror schedule and be rearing to go in the first-round NRL clash against the Warriors.


    Read the full article

    [hr]

    Tooves shouldn't be making comments like “The side virtually picks itself, apart from a couple of blokes on the fringes,” . He should be saying all players need to earn your stripes.

    I think we will get the warriors. There poor pack is depleted, lillyman, luck and the rapira brothers all out injuried.

    Rd 2 will be the test. If I was tooves I would be cutting out all these articles righting us off and have them stuck everywhere.

    Agree with this. Stoked with the effort to fight back into the contest when the easy option was to roll over.

    Congratulations, that is the first post on this site criticising the new coach (well the first I noticed anyway). The first of thousands, judging by previous tendencies.

    And you call yourself a detective?

    "Tooves shouldn't be making comments like “The side virtually picks itself, apart from a couple of blokes on the fringes,” . He should be saying all players need to earn your stripes."

    Might not exactly be calling for his head but that is criticism is it not? :angel:

    Which is not to say I disagree entirely with the sentiment. But we are the premiers, so to say the team is settled to start the new season is merely calling a spade a spade. Refreshing candour from Tooves, in fact.

    I think we over read statements because in the Des era if he said he needed to poo it meant something entirely different like he needed to release several players onto the open market or something stupid like that. Des the master of mindgames.

    Tooves is right... The side for round 1 does virtually pick itself. Toovey doesn't say the side for the rest of the year picks itself. It's just for round 1 and he is spot on.

    And the shameful thing is i used to believe him when he said he was off to the dunny. Obviously he took his laptop with him and wrote many emails there.

    In Des' defence Jatz he didn't lie about going to the dunny. He said he was off to the sh!thole and he went to Belmore.
