How did you find your club’s 2019 season?
Very pleased - I hadn’t expected the team to do as well as they did. I felt that they bounced back very well from the disappointment of the previous year.
What surprised you at your club last year?
The return of Des Hasler as the coach of the club last year. I thought it was a masterstroke. I have always been a great fan of his abilities as a coach but he did surprise me with the speed with which he turned the team into a winning unit.
What disappointed you?
I was disappointed with the standard of refereeing last year. The culmination of this for me was the way Manly were bundled out of the semi finals.
What are the 2020 expectations?
Manly will maintain consistency. I also believe that they can make the grand final and be serious contenders for the 2020 premiership.
