At the start of the year we thought our team was better than the tigers.
We thought our cattle could outplay theirs.
We have coaching staff that can get the players fit, but there seems to be no higher end coaching - such as skill, set plays, game plans.
And to say he had no cattle to replace players with is a farce. Bryant and burns spring to mind. Cuthbo was never tested. Mullane was going well in the centres as well. There was plenty of opportunity to blood players as a minimum - which would only improve depth for this year IF thats what he was playing for.
Des is far from the only one to blame - blocker, manly's media, and plenty others have let the club down, but in the end the buck stops with Des.
How many games did we start asleep because the coach didnt have us fired up??
