Hasler's view is probably that he's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. It was only one loss, and he is having to go on the road - might have copped a lot of flack for changing the team based on one result.

That said, I wouldn't have started Dunley at hooker. He is clearly not capable of playing all those minutes.

I just dont understand that he just wont give ballin a go. How are you ever to know what could be if you don't try it. If I were a young footballer hoping to make it through the ranks to 1st grade, this would put me off playing for manly.

You're an oxygen thief mate.....

I can see how much it disturbs you to have to hear someone else express an opinion......at least Mata retorts with something more intelligent that homosexual inferences....

While I agree with the principle of stepping reserve graders up to first grade (obviously, how else does anyone make it to the top grade), this needs to be done gradually and preferrably one player at a time where possible. I don't believe that the wholelsale promotion of Cuthbertson and Ballin in the same week will really address anything. Today, the gap between first grade and reserve grade is probably wider than it has ever been. Just look at the match against Newcastle @ Newcastle in 2005 to get an idea. What really matters now is "NRL experience". Yes, of course we have to promote players from reserves to allow them to gain such experience. But lets do it initially off the bench, and then in a phased way. We don't have any injuries, so nothing is forcing the issue just yet.

And for its worth, I am no apologist for Des. Quite the oppositie in fact.

I hope that they win but I am fearful that we will get smashed.

The only way he is going to change the team is if we play badly every game for a month and then he might make changes because he will be forced to.

At least this week we can turn the TV off if they don't play well instead of having to sit through D grade mistake riddled crap again.

Lighten up Ridgey, and grow some thicker skin.

or your other option is to go F#ck yourself.

I couldnt care less either way.

Hey Byso and Dan, this knob bites easier than anyone else ever has :)

Thats a bit harsh, i was not aware there was a law against oxygen and it's consumption.
WHo is the regulating body on this?
Who polices it?
Where should I have been paying for my oxygen at?

Well if Dessie thinks one big loss is not enough evidence to go changing the lineup, then it should be case closed after we get hammered again this week. As Fatty would say, it's a five-eighth-a-thon!!

Well I don't know what everyone is complaining about, past history suggests des wouldn't change the side and he hasn't. We all should have known that this was going to happen so get over it

In other words, a "waste of breach" son.....
Not quite sure how you arrived at the conclusion that I was suggesting there was a law "against oxygen", rather my post would suggest that Fro had been consuming illegally....the rest of your post was reasonably witty though compared to your usual droll efforts....
