Des Hasler is’ sorry’ for male fans who were forced to endure their disappointing performance in their opening round defeat by the Sydney Roosters

The roosters showed a dominant performance Brett Morris and James Tedesco both grabbed hat tricks and secured a 46-4 win over the unlucky Sea Eagles

Manly had 39 missed tackles against the Roosters ’18 and was unable to handle the hosts’ electrical backline at the SCG

Seven of the roosters’ nine attempts stalled on the right edge, and Moses Suli and Reuben Garrick struggled to find their way through the defense

“In the first game of the year you expect a better result physically and a better performance,” said Hasler in his press conference after the game

Hasler was so frustrated with his team’s efforts on the field that he found it necessary to apologize to the Sea Eagles fans

“We have to describe ourselves, the club and the fans better

Concerns arose late in the game that Kieran Foran had to leave the field six minutes before the injury ended

Hasler suggested that it appeared to be just a cork, but refused to state whether it is likely he would be left outside for long periods

Despite the high score, Hasler saw some positive results in his side’s performance, including Dylan Walker’s return to the full-back, whom he described as “solid”

Hasler also stated that he would likely stay with the same team for the second round

Manly has a full seven day turnaround before they host the South Sydney Rabbitohs next Saturday night
