I think the next few weeks will play out if we retain Des Hasler. If Ivan Cleary signs with Wests, then who is the replacement should Bulldogs and Hasler not come to terms? If Hasler dont work out, can we look for the Diamond in the rough? BRIAN SMITH. We know he can get very quick results, we know he will get you to a grand final.. We know He wants to win a grand final more than anything just like our football club.. Is Brian Smith the diamond out in the rough?
