Please explain . What do you mean ?
Hasler keeps Manly Star - The Mole Des Hasler has put on his diplomat’s hat and may well have saved Manly in its bid to keep Kiwi international Marty Taupau. The fiery forward has been desperate to get out of Brookvale for the past year, but much has changed since Hasler took over at Manly a few short weeks ago. Hasler sat Taupau down one-on-one last week and showed the big fella some love - and word is it may have just done the trick. Half a dozen clubs were chasing the Kiwi Test enforcer and several were prepared to allow him to write his own cheque. But Taupau now sees a future at Manly and is apparently happy to stay on board in a major boost for Hasler and the Sea Eagles.
Great news . Thanks feathered friend . I think Marty will go another lever next season . A fired up Marty is like watching fireworks
Fireworks are overrated noise that grab your attention for 5 minutes and then disappear. I'd like to think Taupau will offer more than fireworks!
I see what you mean and I hope so too
She may have mistook you for a bird with those long lustrous locks.
I'm wearing a hoodie in my photo
Did you see what DES did there. DES and the Manly way are Back.
Who was it that wanted to bet me actual money Taupau was supposedly definitely gone? I know. Will you own up?
It wasn’t me but I reckon he had one foot out the door. Nice work Dessie! Marty is a keeper!
Great news! Let’s hope Marty is happy and ready to fire for 2019. It would have been terrible to lose him
I can only wonder what rubbish he who cannot coach had been telling him for the last 3 years. I'dve wanted out too...
Ryan wins the internet against whoever made that ridiculous bet. Well in Ryan, well in.
Classic journo made up story to counter their other made up stories that didn’t come to fruition...
I'll take that my good sir. Even through the sarcasm, a compliment is a compliment if you read it the way I can make myself, so thanks.
That would be me Ryan I'm not embarrassed to say I was wrong. I would say the great changes the club has made in the off season has changed Marty's mind, but yes I was wrong. I'm glad you didn't take me up on the bet
In this case mate, not being harsh, kinda glad you were wrong. Love the player, the man, the professionalism, the culture he brings. Everything. Not surprised Des put him straight into the leadership group.
No matter buddy, kudos for being a man. It was all journo bullh!t anyways... he was never going anywhere.
Something we both wholeheartedly agree on, that's for sure. P.S. I'm over the other bitch session we are having. You win, I won't go on about Suli. He'll either prove me right (which would kind of suck), or he'll kill it, and make me look like a fool, but is win in that scenario for me anyways, because we'll be being successful.
Marty looks to be back on deck down at Narrabeen early for pre-season testing (video of him on Sea Eagles twitter). Great to see the big fella ripping in early - Bodes well for his increased role as a leader within the group.
