Coaching Insider: NRL Round 23

Sat 12th August, 10:00AM

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary gives his final thoughts ahead of his side's clash against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles tomorrow afternoon at Leichhardt Oval.

Despite impressive performances over the past six weeks, only two wins has put Cleary's side back in a fight to avoid the wooden spoon — something which the Coach emphasised the team wanted to avoid, but wouldn't be celebrating running 15th compared to 16th.

"The ladder position really doesn't make much difference, frankly," he said.

"Being where we are is never about celebrating ladder positions — it's about trying to play each week and build ourselves in to our winning performance and tomorrow is no different.

"The last six weeks we've been competitive and won the games we should have.

"We probably haven't been grinding games out well enough; last week was another example of that but that's where we've got to get to and keep showing that competitive nature. I'm looking forward to being back at home at Leichhardt and enjoying it with our fans tomorrow."

See what Ivan Cleary had to say about this week's game in full in the video above!

I think he's just trying to make sure we don't do a Parra Geo. I think Ivan would be pretty determined not to get a wooden spoon in his first season with us.

He seems to play his cards pretty close to his chest when it comes to the media (remember the Lolohea stuff). Although, he sounds very honest when he addresses his players and the fans.
