    I know we aren't travelling too well, and it seems the players, coaching staff and the management are to blame. I know, as unbelievable as it seems, I feel we need to give Igor a call and get him back in the squad.
    Surely he could add some muscle to the middle of the ruck, and inspire many players around him to lift their games.
    Perhaps we could get Des Hasler back, and why not Arko as well. I think that should fix things moving forward.

    Alas, Igor's arthritic hands could not catch the ball :(

    Stuff me I have had just about enough of trotting out names of former great players as saviours in any form of coaching position.

    It is apparent to me that many of you have not been in any form of leadership in your life, for if you had you would know the adage of "being good at doing the job doesn't make you good at making others do the job" applies across all fields.

    He is 65 years old. Only thing he has a chance in is the Auckland Nines. He could be assistant coach though.

    All time great. Was standout tough when the game was played tough - not many of today's pampered princesses would have been able to cut it back then. Absolutely fearless. Not really suited for coaching in today's game - just get the team to watch some old footage of him in action instead. The toughest sea eagle of them all, just shading tooves. Daylight third.

    Yep. I remember he broke his hand against saints in the 1st game of 78 i think. Then sat on the sideline with it in a bucket of ice. They'd be straight off for scans these days.
    I showed a mob of kids I was coaching the tackle on Dallas Donnelly that's shown on fibros v silvertails. They couldn't believe it.
    Sadly they didn't replicate it though.

    It still irks me that Roy masters has hijacked that whole wests vs manly rivalry as being the tough westies vs the soft pampered manly rich boys. Randall never took a backward step in any of those games, and gave at least as good as he got. He played tough but fair, unlike some of those wests boys. Most players in the 70s rated him the toughest they played against - that's good enough for me.

    Me too. 4 of them on him at lidcombe oval in 78. That's bravery masters style. Roy masters has a lot to answer for. He's lauded as a wonderful contributor to rugby league but his sh*t filtered down to the juniors. I played in the Balmain district at the time and the filth crept in after that with brawls involving the crowd etc. Roy masters is a sham

    Yep, just proves there is some justice in the world. Also explains why he is so bitter and twisted.

    Him and Mr Bennett could go to bingo together. Not being agist. It might be fun for them and if Igor loses he could punch the sh*t out of Wayne. Then Trent could go and coach the donkeys.

    @TerryRandall would be an asset to our coaching staff. Staring at this profile picture for an hour after each loss might freak them out enough to show some ticker and conjure a win.
