You may be well aware of the main story on the back of the Telegraph today, continued inside on a Fax Blunder by Manly. Someone accidentally faxed a motivational message from Des to the players to a local business, who then leaked it to the Telegraph, who printed it. The paper incorrectly states that it is a match plan, which is bollocks. It is no great stuff up, though I wonder which club employee was behind this one! It makes interesting reading and I will print it below: Manly's blunder EXCLUSIVE By DEAN RITCHIE April 28, 2005 MANLY coach Des Hasler's secret plan to motivate his players for tomorrow night's blockbuster against Brisbane was inadvertently sent to a Sydney business last night. The motivational pep talk, in Hasler's own hand writing, was faxed to a wrong number and then leaked to The Daily Telegraph. On the eve of the Sea Eagles' most crucial club game in years, Hasler's pre-match address to his players contained inspiring lines like: "Losing is unacceptable and I am counting on you. "Confidence is contagious. We will not be intimidated!" It is simply signed: "Des." An associate of Hasler's was supposed to send the confidential pep talk to the players but dialled the wrong fax number. Aware The Daily Telegraph had obtained the letter, Hasler said: "I'm disappointed it has come into your hands. But those are my thoughts. Players have to be in the right frame of mind to win matches."
