I expect him to keep a lid on the excitement because they’re running dead last and just snuck home against poor opposition...’best win he has been involved in’ and ‘it’s easy to kick a team when they’re down’ and ‘we have backbone’ and the like...cmon, they dropped enough ball to lose 10 football games. They scored some soft tries and almost got run down by a team that looked disinterested. Anyone would have thought they’d towelled up the competition leaders with a stirring performance...it was just one of those cases of sooner or later they’d have to win a game and they did...hardly season building.
He is kidding if that is his best win ever. An idiot of the highest order!

He did get ahead himself didn’t he. It was hardly an outstanding performance against quality opposition...Sharks were terribly flat in the first half and Dogs got the jump to 18 nil and then the Sharks were the better side in the second half but kept bombing tries. A rather lucky 6 point win against cannon fodder and Barrett is claiming that they can ‘build their season’ off it...
A penny for your thoughts, Bob Fulton.

Yeah made a big deal out of the win to the disguise the reality that there will not be many more.

Yeah, but the players love him.
He is more of a superfriend than a supercoach. He seems to be mates with every player in the NRL and always refers to them by their nickname when talking to the media. He is a drinking buddy, not a head coaches arsehole.

Got to say don't really rate this Naden signing....for the Dogs that is

Naden, Cotric, Flanagan, Allen, Hethrington.....all talented players in the right system but dont see how they fit together.

I dont see a strategy in their recruitment, more just get who you can get.

Even Addo-Carr who is a great player, I dont see as a game changer in a struggling team with a big price.

Burton to be fair could be fantastic.

They need to hold everything now and focus on a hooker

Didn't realise that the dogs have two ex Manly coaches now. Peter Sharp is their recruitment manager.
Looks like dogs are using the lesser ex Manly coach to run first grade. @:D@:D@:D

TBAZ cant seem to help himself can he? Looks to have a real need to recruit A grade Knobheads to which ever club he's at...


BULLDOGS’ BID FOR MEEHAN

Canterbury has failed in an attempt to sign boxer and ex-Roosters star Willis Meehan.

The 25-year-old was once rated the most promising young forward in the game but left the Roosters in 2015 while he was dealing with a number of off field issues.

The then 19-year-old was stood down by the club after he was charged with headbutting a man and stealing his watch near The Star casino. He was sentenced to 150 hours of community service.

The Bulldogs expressed interest in signing Willis Meehan. Picture: Toby Zerna

Meehan made a boxing comeback in March after a two-year absence and knocked out his opponent in one round. He also troubled Paul Gallen in a spa before his fight with Lucas Browne.

The heavyweight was keen to have another crack at the NRL. He is a much-improved person these days, according to good sources.

Bulldogs recruitment boss Peter Sharp contacted the NRL but was told Meehan would need a clearance from the integrity unit.

Yep - he referred to them as a big side eight times in three minutes.

Explains why he attempted to sign Meehan.
