Interesting take. I was at the game and thought Parker did a great job. Yes, he got beaten once or twice (players with footwork seem to worry him) but for the most part, did his job defensively and made that break for our first try.
Damn, thanks for the info. So this goes all the way back to 2005? If any bad blood was still present when Chad was working with Des, likely it’s opened up old wounds with his latest sacking. I agree - these grudges are not healthy. I hate reading these things when club legends opt out of these...
Yes, agree. That defensive stat which was only marginally better than Wests in 1999... is very sad indeed. Let's not forget, even the great Bozo lost 7 straight to start the '99 season before handing over the reigns to Sharp.
