    Not quite. If done well it makes them change their attack

    And if its not then it leaves a hole that most NRL players are good enough to exploit.

      If you have the numbers then yes, you leave your defence a man short and if your tackle doesn't stick then the opposition will more than likely score. But if you're short to begin with then it's a risk that's worth taking and all you really need to do is slow down the play enough to allow the backup to come through which is what Parker did every time he came up.

        Brad has been officially welcomed into the ranks of first grade by the referees.

        When a knights player clearly kicked the ball away from Brad as he tried to play it, and the ref ruled that Brad lost it, we all finally knew that the refs see Parker as a true Manly first grader and should be reffed accordingly.

        Well done Brad!

              There has been a massive improvement from Parker, when compared to last season.

              I think we all know the reason why this has happened.

              I can only wonder how someone like a B.Kelly would have developed over the last few years with a better coaching system in place, or even if he had stuck around for this season.

                He’s improved his defence & ball handling hopefully for now.

                To be fair Ponga makes most players look foolish. Same as Tupou. Suli has had some really, REALLY good players to mark, unfortunately.

                Looks like Hopoate's not going to happen any time soon, so I hope we get Walker and someone like Aitken in asap.

                    I'm no Parker fan far from it, but under Barrett he was picked and put in shockers without improvement .Under Des he's being picked and you can see the big improvement , and amazing what the right coaching staff can do . We'll done lad.

                      I hope Parker has him. The Ginga Gunna take him out of the game.

                      Defence was a big issue for our backs last season

                      If you look at the defensive stats after 5 games Parker has less missed tackles than Kelly . Kelly still averages over six miss tackles a game .

                      Our turn style defence from last season has definitely much improved

                          Coaching does play a big role

                          But the jury is still out on Kelly as far as I am concerned as his defence has not improved under a different coach at the Titans and over 2 years of NRL experience.

                            You really are a master hypocrite Bozo

                            How many times have we heard you crap on about how speed kills and that we need speedy backline players? Parker and Suli are not the fastest but you don’t mention this at all

                            You call people bitter yet you will take any opportunity to still whinge about Barrett despite the club having moved on and being in very good hands now

                            You have celebrated how much Des has improved the team and we can all see that the entire team has improved under his coaching yet you dismiss the idea that Kelly would have improved like all the others

                            Your enthusiasm in cheering on the team rubs off well on people here. Shame about your hypocrisy and downright stupidity though

                            Have a nice day
