Round 1 Hurrell against Manly is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seenBluey hands down. Gave them a soft off season and then picked an unfit Hurrell round 1. I still remember expecting KH to carve up and instead he spent much of the game doubled over catching his breath. I don't know of another coach who misunderstood the physical requirements of first grade
I wasn't one of them. I was as dumbfounded as the Blair signing, mind you I knew of Bluey from Fox.If I remember correctly a lot of people were excited about the Bluey appointment.
He had won the Super League title two years in a row with Leeds and had some success with NZ.
Was a huge disappointment after all the hype.
