As I said, nothing against Nobes. But if Clarko was on the market 12 months ago, or Shaw's annus horribilis was this year instead of last year and now Clarko is available, Clarko would be our coach.Bad call. Get behind Nobes 100% and don’t confuse the “what ifs” with the “what we haves” which is one of the best teachers, and I firmly believe will prove to be the best coaches in the comp.
2021 was a rebuild year. Half our list slashed at the end of 2020 and Nobes only got the job in November. Ninths months in the job. Nobody could have done better with such a young list and overhauled game plan as Nobes has done. Time will tell of course but I think we should feel ourselves extremely lucky to have landed ourselves Nobes after the Rhyce Shaw disaster.
Not disappointed with Nobes, but if we had the chance to secure the greatest coach of the modern era and bring a Shinboner home, we'd be silly not too.
