Nearly choked on my vita-brits when I saw Geoff Gerard in yesterday's Tele call BA the 'best coach in the comp' (GG spent the article talking about how NOW, as a Board member, he was going to right the club. Not sure what as a Board member he thought his responsibility was in the past, but that's a story for another day). Anyway, BA's claim to fame, ie his BEST achievement as an NRL coach is...6 wins from 9 rounds. That's it. 6 wins. From 9 rounds. Let's have a look at some of our other current and non-current coaches who have achieved more in the game (NRL only): 1. Wayne Bennett - premiership 2. Paul Green - premiership 3. Des Hasler - premiership 4. Trent Robinson - premiership 5. Michael Maguire - premiership 6. Anthony Griffin - finals 7. Paul McGregor - finals 8. Shane Flanagan - finals 9. Neil Henry - finals 10. Ricky Stuart - premiership 11. Craig Bellamy - premiership Others: 1. Geoff Toovey - grand final 2. Ivan Cleary - grand final 3. John Cartwright - finals 4. Tim Sheens - premiership That's 15 coaches right there who can claim they are a more successful coach than BA. I really don't see what he's done to cause all this fuss.
