Defensively we are so poor. This is on him a bit and I really don't see alot improvement from Des.What is wrong with our coaching staff. Are they blind? What was happening out there was as clear as day and forecast by most on here after John's performance against Newcastle in Mudgee. Seibold is losing me, he started well by saying all of the right things and trying to bring the squad back together but his judgment with selections and the use of the bench have at times been very disappointing and we have paid dearly on the scoreboard. Additionally we still can't play percentage football and get into the grind. Its not rocket science.
His defence is good last week yeah but rarely has a defence game like that , tonight he missed that one on Fidow but he will do that to most playersKoula deserved the tries tonight but he needs to work on his defence and if he stays at Manly needs to bulk up.
Plenty of strapping on the arm tonight as well.Koula came back quite quickly after knee surgery, plenty of bandages, would be surprised if he is still a bit unsure on it, or maybe his confidence is down a little. Last year his defence was fierce and a real feature. He's certain to bounce back, and hopefully sooner than later.
