Yep.I dont think it is a top 4 squad, too many players with question marks over them.
Top 8 next season is a great result for them and is certainly possible but I have them just missing 9-12th
Well that ends their season before a ball is kicked..... the only thing the coach will get them to do collectively is have a drinking session .. and there is sure to be fall out from that with that group off players... we may even see Gus don the Toga at a special players toga partyYep.
The media ( and us to a certain extent) wank on about how well they’ve recruited blah, blah, blah.
Yes, they may all be individually good players but we all know the trick is to get them playing well collectively….and that is up to the coach.
Maybe he asked for plastic chairs and the showers to be remodeled to look like cars... it didn’t hurt Manly under Des HaslerFrom the kennel:
meanwhile at Belmore I understand the the gym and recovery facilities have received a nice little reno
Looks like Twent is up to his old tricks, blaming the facilities. LOL
They have got the best completion rate, but it's useless when you can't score. They have the lowest points For with 340, a 100 points less than the next lowest.One interesting factoid about the 2021 season is the Dogs had the competition’s best completion rate.
What does that say about dog Barrett’s coaching?
You're right, Barrett's excuses give the perception he's too much like 'one of them' to his players and lacking any authority. With Bennett, and even Des for that matter, you know they're on a different level to their players and are treated with respect.I also think (as others have pointed out) he is full of excuses and that is not a character trait to carry around amongst professional footballers. You have to own your performance.
Also picked up Asiata, Burnes and Josh Cook. Rabbits reserve hooker.Thompson
Its a pretty good pack. I think they should make the 8 with that team the bottom 8 is pretty close and the dogs lost some close games. Twent even cried a few times that the top teams would of got the call or given the try blah blah
Edit. So who are the players they are getting for 2022.
? Cant think of anymore
Thats a massive boost in x factor talent. Dufty is great in attack
Ado carr will love his cut out passes
Burton plays left side with ado carr and Dufty prefers left side attack
Naden another good buy
TPJ is a beast
Vaughn loads of experience, Good buy imo for a young team.
Along with Jackson Hetherington and Raymond F Mariner thats a pretty big pack. Guz Gould pulling Barretts strings and running the show in the background... interesting times ahead! If he fails we can laugh and if he succeeds we can say its all Guz
