All about playing to strengths. When we don't have a clear out we are kicking to contests, getting numbers to the fall and beating the living sh!t out of their mids. That then either gives us the ball or creates a stoppage giving us time to set up. Simples. None of this swinging it around the d50 looking for a spare only to run into trouble and scramble out a sh!te kick.
Not about process or some jumble of statistics. But a simple enjoyment of vanquishing an opponent. Nice.RHYCE Shaw wrote the number on the whiteboard in North Melbourne's rooms, waiting for his victorious players to return from acknowledging their supporters at Marvel Stadium.
Quite simply, it read: "1995."
The number was symbolic. It was the year the last time Collingwood was kept to a score as low as the 5.7 (37) it was limited to by North Melbourne on Saturday night.
Interesting. Sometimes it's the things you don't say about the alternative that tell the real story.Dumont: "He's got really, really high standards, so he'll let you know if you're not up to scratch. But he'll also chuck his arm around you and give you all the support you need along the journey.
In fairness this squad were besotted with their previous coach to but it's nice they feel this way now. Hope it doesn't slide into any 'familiarity breeds contempt' territorty."We love him, we just love him. Hopefully we can continue to play this way for him."
When you consider those results include 2 top 4 teams it’s even more impressive.The Kangaroos have gone from conceding 49.5 points per game from turnovers under Scott in the first 10 weeks, to just 28 points under Shaw – from 14th in the League to first.

Make no mistake I want him to succeed, probably as much as you do.I have heard enough. SIGN HIM
Surely the review and interviewing is done if were offering Longmire mega dollars?Make no mistake I want him to succeed, probably as much as you do.
We should be methodical about it.
IMO we should communicate that the situation has changed and that horse is not a say yes and you've got it type deal.
We should see who is interested in the role and pick a few and listen to what they have to say.
Every other coach is now at a disadvantage due to what Shaw is showing.
- relationships with players
- style of play
- selection process
For mine he is in the box seat.
But we should still do the other things, the review, the interviewing of potential coaches, not because we don't want Shaw, but because they are the prudent things to do.
