The ‘Bring Des Hasler Back to Manly’ cam­paign is alive and well on Syd­ney’s north­ern beaches. There’s a lot more wa­ter to flow un­der the bridge be­fore Hasler’s ex­ten­sion at the Bull­dogs is sorted. And even if it is, the ten­u­ous na­ture of modern con­tracts will be put to the test. There are cer­tain fig­ures on the Bull­dogs board who aren’t con­vinced Hasler un­der­stands the Can­ter­bury cul­ture, and think all con­cerned would be bet­ter off if he went back to Manly. Trent Bar­rett has an­other sea­son to run on his two-year deal at Brook­vale but an­other fail­ure in 2017 will open the way for Hasler to re­turn to the club where he won two pre­mier­ships as a coach and two as a player.
