    I need a maybe.

    I will give him next season as well. If he cant coach the team with a quality half then no, if we improve well than yes.

    Though I think the Captain situation needs to be looked at. I think Monas is a little bit inexperienced to be captain and perhaps it should be Kennedy.

    Dessie makes the decision to purchase players, select the captain. Devise game tactics, defensive and attacking patterns

    Then select the best teams week in week out.

    He has only proved that when things don’t go his way........he loses his way.

    I'm shocked, looks like the MSE crowd are visiting ST again. Welcome.

    How could the majority be happy with this season?

    we finished in 8th spot, I though 8th to 10th and that would be a fairly good season. So I am happy with the outcome

    Yes for me.

    Were we all questioning him after winning 9 from 12 at the begining of the season? No. In fact most of us thought he was doing a great job with what most 'non' manly supporters would call an average line-up.

    There were hardly any positional changes. Witt and Donnald being the most noticable. So how can we blame a coach for the bad end of season when he has proven he can coach them to compete with the best during the first half of the season.

    I put the end of season demise down to a few select players bad form or lack of motivation.

    yes, he's doing a good job.

    got us into the 8 after we had our whole salary cap to spend. now we have better players coming and will move up the ladder accordingly.

    however, if we can't finish top 6 next year with the team we have then serious q's need to be asked.

    obviously it wasn't ideal losing a lot of games in the second half of the season. But if you ahd of switched the halves around and we stormed home and made the 8, we'd all be pretty damn happy with the effort. Just the way you look at it i spose.

    I wasn't happy with the end of the season no. But Des did well enough to get us into the 8 with a less than perfect roster. A lot of the problem was not really Des's problem but a certain halfbacks.

    The coach can only go so far, and quite clearly at the start of the season he equipped his team with the right tools, its the players fault for dropping them

    Fair enough, I think the coach has to keep the players motivated to get the team playing "as a team" From what I see that isn't evident.

    Flip the start of the season everything did look great, then he didn't handle a few pressing issues well and the team lost focus. His fault!

    Only a few players were injured during the year at certain stages. Theres no excuses for this demise. I dont care that we lost games, it was the way in which these loses happened that annoying.

    Our standard of play was park footy standard. They played like they were uncoached at least 5 times this year. Not good enough.

    the broncos look like an uncoached side atm.....so by that reasoning you wouldn't take Bennett?

    Yes for me.

    I am not happy with our end of season form but we still did enough to make the 8. Next year will be his make or break year with good cattle in key positions.

    The reason the Broncos remain comeptitive is because their Roster is far superior to ours. No other reason.

    Nah he started off the year great and took a team that no one thought would be within a stones throw of the finals and got them there and for most the year looked like title contenders

    Yes. Anything else would be a knee-jerk. He inherited a side that finished second last, created a player turnover of over 30 in the last 2 years and managed to get us into the finals (and keep us in the 8 all year) in such a short space of time. Souths have had as long as we've had to rebuild and they're progress looks miniature in comparison.

    Our first grade squad in 2003:

    Tony Jensen
    Jason Ferris
    Aaron Cannings
    Mitch Creary
    Mark Shipway
    Anthony Watmough *
    Scott Donald
    Sam Harris
    Brendon Reeves
    Albert Torrens
    Luke Dorn
    Grant Wooden
    Steve Menzies *
    Nathan Long
    Chad Randall
    Ben MacDougall
    Jason King *
    Craig Hayne
    Matt Hill
    John Hopoate
    Sam Murphy
    Alex Moore
    Christian Hill
    Danny Lima
    Kevin McGuinness
    Ben Walker
    Malupo Kaufusi
    Luke Williamson *
    Tasesa Lavea

    4/30 players in 2003 will be here for the 2006 season. That's one hell of a transition.
