They had 3 big buys, all first graders and Sivo has been a revelation like Garrick.
Blake Ferguson, Junior Paulo, Shaun Lane, Maika Sivo

Our biggest buy was Elgey and a few other reserve graders.
Des easily coach of the year, and the job is not done yet.
Add Waqa Blake - one of those mid-season buys the Eels seem to specialise in - to that list.

Des screwed up tonight

He should have rested DCE.

Elliott should have been at centre so Suli could bludge on the wing, as Suli was ****e again tonight.

Someone who watches it let us know what he says
* Was asked about our recent form - said we need to be more consistent, not just week to week but half to half (ie play consistently the whole game).

* AFB this week - his case is currently before "the tribunal" (mentioned Dr Nathan Gibbs and others) and hopes to have a decision by 4pm Tuesday before team announced. He respects AFB's reasons for not having the jab. (I'm not sure what the tribunal is that he referred to?)

* Walker & Turbo - expecting them to return in 2-4 weeks respectively.

* We were up for the Eels and caught them at the right time to get the win.

* Need to improve our discipline.

* Wouldn't comment on reports he left the Dogs with a bad roster, said it was too long ago!

Does Des have the nurturing skill of leading the sea eagles pathways system?

The team selection of Des is very much a Stone Age philosophy.

Win / loose or draw the mindset that Des has with loyalty rather than form in a loosing team needs change.

Surely keeping players like hoppa jr is a priority and they should be given a go.

Penrith has shown everyone how its done. Blood some youth, especially if they are potential gun players like Shuster and hoppa jr.

How long did it take to give Quac a go. Seriously, the guy impressed me, massive impact straight away

How many of these successfully blooded youngsters have only played 20's and have came off serious injuries ? Rhetorical question...NONE of them.
