Kingy preaches the importance in "Knowing where you're at".

This is an area that our two previous coaches had trouble with. A lot has been said about Scott's "rebuild". Shaw then got up and claimed he wanted to "play finals" at the Syd Barker after being appointed, before a 3-15 season.

From what we've seen this year, David Noble has a much clearer perspective.
Thankfully :)

An interesting titbit:

First 11 rounds average result:

NM 61 - 97 Opposition

Since the bye:

NM 72 - 80 Opposition

So effectively we are a 28 point per game better side post the bye.


What's this improving after the bye thing you're talking about?

7 Jake Stringer (ESS)
7 Darcy Parish (ESS)
7 Zach Merrett (ESS)
5 Peter Wright (ESS)

I hope all our players now realise the days of being patted on the back for honourable losses are gone.

You can tell Nobes loves the young talent he has at his disposal. 20 points down in the last and at the centre bounce was Lazzaro, Thomas, Xerri and Simpkin. Awesome work coach.
had to laugh listening to the radio call on mmm and when we were down as you said in the 4th all ross lyons could bang on about is the mids were spent and nobles had to try ziebel in there, nekminit we win 3 of the next 4 clearances.

Nobes with 2 to Jy & 1 to Souv you rekn KC?

Fascinating if so & Truck has given 1 vote to Jy, despite us being the better side for 2.5 quarters.

They really do - remember the carnage early?!?!

Its been a huge improvement.
Remember the caning that Mahoney got for following team instructions and going in board against Port after being directed to by Simpkin which led to a turnover and goal to Port?
The short sightedness and vitriol on here was deplorable. You know who you are!!!
It took those risks to reap the reward we’re seeing now. Maintain perspective Nth BFites!

Exactly - impatience is lacking around these parts. Now it's Xerri's turn.

It looks something like this…

Coach 1

5: Parish
4: Stringer
3: Merrett
2: Simpkin
1: Larkey


Coach 2

5: Wright
4: Merrett
3: Stringer
2: Parish
1: Simpkin


So one coach has given North a single vote for the game.

Exactly. And as soon as Ford or Atu come in and contribute novice type output, the usual BF peanut(s) who unrelentingly savaged JM, overlooking his age and inexperience, to vent their subjective tirades, had better come out swinging their sharpened axes in the same manner, the weak pr1cks.

I love the trust nobes has in the younger guys.
Practically treats the selected 22 as equals - it creates belief in each other.
His sides will not rely on to few to carry the load but be shared across the park
Giving trust builds trust.

These kids that he's doing this with will want to play for him. They'll give everything.

I confess to using Mahoney as a whipping boy earlier in the season. The kid has incredible potential. Hard to be patient

If I'm betting Coach 2 is Noble. Kind of like it, not sure that I necessarily agree with his votes all the time but there is no point giving themselves pats on the back when losing.
