    IF you thought all the player movement at the Manly Sea Eagles was a bit of a shake-up on the northern peninsula, stand by for a lot more changes north of the Spit.

    NRL regulars Josh Perry, Trent Hodkinson, Ben Farrar and Chris Bailey have all departed the Narrabeen headquarters - and Sport Confidential understands the 2008 premiers are poised to make a raft of other changes.

    Coach Des Hasler is renowned as one of the hardest taskmasters in rugby league and the Eagles bowing out in the first week of the finals for the past two years has been simply unacceptable for the one-time champion halfback.

    Hasler wants Manly back to the Silvertails days of 2007 and 2008 and there have been some major rumblings behind the scenes about how to try to rejuvenate the club.

    Certain people on this forum have had strong words to say about the attitude of certain players. That is also something that might be addressed. A few of our squad have been dining out on a certain (fabulous) October day in 2008, forgetting that life has moved on and there have been two Premierships run and won since then. If a rocket is needed to get minds focussed, all power to Desmond.

    Its about time they got some military-type discipline in the place - if Major Rumblings can't sort things out, nobody can. If he doesn't work, time to try General Disaster.

    This is the best article I have read and gives me lots of hope since we were bundled out. I'm glad that it won't continue with the 'everything is alright' credo that I felt was becoming standard fare coming out of the club. Yes, we had severe injuries at the death but overall it was a hugely disappointing year for mine. More power to the decision makers to turn it all around.
