With the Manly Sea Eagles zero from four in the first four weeks of the NRL season, coach Des Hasler (60) has taken drastic measures to ensure he doesn’t get the ‘Full support of the club’ speech before falling vicitim to a Julius Caesar style knifing. Never one to do things by halves, Des truly is bringing the game into the 21st century with his latest tactic – installing NAVMAN’s in the players’ uniforms.
“Our biggest problem is that we’re not scoring tries, so that begs the question – do the players actually know where the try line is? Once I realized that, the NAVMAN’s were the natural solution,” said coach Des.
And boy was he right, as the players did a test run this morning and ended up running the wrong way before Des synced them up with the satellite.
“Yeah, nah – it’s the other way fellas,” said coach, Des Hasler.
Time will tell if this bold move pays off, but one thing is for sure – Manly can’t do any worse.
