Des Hasler sacked as Manly Warringah Sea Eagles coach


Manly Sea Eagles manager Des Hasler has been sacked by the club, after a disastrous end to their 2022 campaign.

The Sea Eagles will announce the news after a board meeting decided the coach’s fate on Thursday morning.

Hasler took the reins in 2019 after Trent Barrett’s failed stint in the chair.

The Sea Eagles made finals in 2019 and again in 2021, but slipped badly in 2020 and this year were badly injured in the shoulder by superstar fullback Tom Trbojevic, and finished 11th on the ladder.

However, they were destined to play finals until the matchday 19 rainbow jersey fiasco, after which the club failed to win a match in the NRL.

Hasler previously coached Manly from 2004 to 2011 and led Manly to the premierships in 2008 and 2011.

After leaving the club after the 2011 Grand Final, Hasler coached the Bulldogs.

Hasler reportedly fell out with club management after the Matchday 19 shirt saga, and the relationship deteriorated to the point where it was untenable.

On Wednesday night, Nine’s Danny Weidler reported that the Sea Eagles’ biggest names – Tom and Jake Trbojevic – were concerned about the instability gripping the club.

Their manager Paul Sutton revealed that his clients were “worried” about the impact of the fallout between Hasler and management on the team.

Former Broncos and Rabbitohs head coach Anthony Seibold is set to replace Hasler at Manly.
