State of Origin Captain
Des wasn't at fault at the Dogs IMO, in retrospect. That organization was simply not prepared with the infrastructure, the ideals and the playing group that Hasler needed to be at HIS best. They still aren't. He goes back to Manly which, while it might be falling apart at the seams financially, has a very well brought together playing group that are buying into what coach is selling.I dunno Des at the dogs was pretty poor. It seems like his mojos at Manly. Plus he's not bffs with Tighty Whitey so he never would have gotten the job no matter how good his presentation was.
We are none of those things lol But we were definitely closer to where we needed to be attitude wise in late 2017 when Des became available, but I guess at that time, if we pushed Bennett out for Hasler, this place would have exploded. Hindsight is 2021.
