NRL: Hasler hails new era RUGBY LEAGUE 11 NOV 10 @ 04:04PM BY JASON AVEDISSIAN http://manly-daily.whereilive.com.au/sport/story/hasler-hails-new-era/ Youngster William Hopoate is a face of the Sea Eagles future. SEA Eagles coach Des Hasler is convinced the club is on the brink of a new era next season, regardless of ManlyÃ¢Â€Â™s quiet off-season recruitment drive. The Sea Eagles got back to work this week at the Sydney Sports Academy in Narrabeen. Only KangaroosÃ¢Â€Â™ forward Anthony Watmough has been absent. Former representative backs Brett Stewart and David Williams have also been unable to train as they continue their rehabilitation process following long-term injuries. Newcomers Daniel Harrison (Bulldogs) and Tim Robinson (Parramatta) have been there all week learning the ropes, with another Liam Foran (Warriors) also now joining the club. But none of these recruits have played NRL football, a fact which doesnÃ¢Â€Â™t bother Hasler. How will Manly go with their next generation? Have your say below. Ã¢Â€ÂœWeÃ¢Â€Â™ve got a lot of young players coming through,Ã¢Â€Â he said on Thursday. Ã¢Â€ÂœWe didnÃ¢Â€Â™t sign any marquee players, but we had five internationals all re-sign. Ã¢Â€ÂœJamie Lyon, Steve Matai, Glenn Stewart, Anthony Watmough, Kieran Foran, thereÃ¢Â€Â™s a lot of talent here.Ã¢Â€Â A lot of established talent, coupled with the introduction of the next generation is what Hasler hopes will ensure a new era at Brookvale. The likes of William Hopoate, Daly Cherry-Evans, Dean Whare, Jamie Buhrer, James Cunningham, Darcy Lussick and Michael Oldfield will certainly play a role beyond this summer. Ã¢Â€ÂœItÃ¢Â€Â™s the beginning of the next cycle of players,Ã¢Â€Â Hasler said. Ã¢Â€ÂœThe next batch of superstars are coming through.Ã¢Â€Â Hasler said the pre-season period is about Ã¢Â€Âœachieving playersÃ¢Â€Â™ needsÃ¢Â€Â and using the time before Christmas to build towards another campaign. Ã¢Â€ÂœWe know where weÃ¢Â€Â™ve got to improve,Ã¢Â€Â he said.
