You guys don't remember how great our attack was in 2015..?? That's when Walters was in charge of the halves and attack.
Next year we were shit.
So Wayne got him back only to not give him the same feedoms he had in 15 (cause he was threatened by an assistant over shinning him)
So kevvie left, stating r re the "wanted to just focus on origin"
Truth is Walters was getting constantly undermined and had his hands tied

The attack was much improved, but it was the defence that stood out.

Rabbitohs football manager takes aim at Broncos on Twitter for sacking Jason Demetriou
The Broncos-Rabbitohs rivalry has kicked up another gear after a senior South Sydney official unloaded on Brisbane’s decision to sack assistant coach Jason Demetriou.
Demetriou was given his marching orders last week following Wayne Bennett’s dismissal and the arrival of new coach Anthony Seibold.
Rabbitohs football manager Brock Schaefer slammed the Broncos in a tweet, which has since been deleted.
“A club choosing to sack JD is easily one of the most ridiculous things I’ve seen in Rugby League and I’ve seen some things,” Schaefer tweeted.
Compare this pedigree to any other Assistant in the NRL (and many head coaches). As Head Coach - Promotion’s in UK, 2 Minor Premierships, 1 Premiership in QRL, 1 NSWRL Premiership, 2 NRL State Championships and an NRL Premiership as an Assistant....
— Brock Schaefer (@brock_sport) December 6, 2018
Schaefer was Northern Pride CEO while Demetriou was coach at the Intrust Super Cup club in Cairns.
Demetriou will land on his feet though after linking up with Bennett at South Sydney.
His move to Redfern was expertly managed by Demetriou and Bennett.
Bennett denied Demetriou would be joining him, forcing the Broncos to sack Demetriou with a year to run on his contract and issue him a payout.
Demetriou was then able to formalise a deal with the Rabbitohs for 2019.

The most successful coach in rugby league history threatened by an assistant?

You might be selling it but I'm not buying it

Wayne refusing to listen to his assistant, refusing to embrace new ideas, and saying my way or the highway....this I can believe, but it would be because Wayne is stubborn and genuinely believes his old way is better than the new way, not because he is threatened

Every league coach knows only success can guarantee your job, and the idea that Wayne would think Kevvie's ways might bring success but he won't do it in case Kevvie gets too much credit is really silly

If he thought Kev's way would get the job done he would do it, he just didn't think it would

I don’t even buy in to this theory that our 2015 was mostly Walters. When did that become accepted truth?

Broken record here, but we performed off our defence. Even when we were ripping teams apart, it was because we were frustrating the **** out of them with our dominant defence. Blair was fucking owning the ruck and teams had little answers for it. Frustration and errors crept in, fatigue, and with that came space and time for Milford and Hunt to run riot.

Agree with this, pretty fair summary.

That run into the 2015 semis, Blair was an absolute beast.

He's also got a massive ego. So the second the papers and fans start correlating the halves successful form to Walters and not Bennett that couldn't be. So he started over calling him. Walters eventually being shut out of the role he was bought there to do stepped out

Yeah that's all fair.

But people have been saying 2015 was Milford's best year. And that's when.Hunt was at the peak of his powers. Running.

That has all but disappeared. We were the entertainers that year. Their attack was at least more exciting? Scoring tries from either end of the field, Milford and Niko in open space.

I dunno.. I thought we've not seemed that confident with ball in hand since then

For this to be definitely true would require two things,

1 - Wayne's stupidity to be bigger than his ego (because he would rather fail on his own than succeed as a team)

2 - you to have inside knowledge (because you are claiming to know what Wayne did and why he did it)

I do not believe either of these to be true
