Apart from Stringer and Fantasia we don't have match winners, we have a team full of match savers.
Francis / Begley could get there IF coached properly.

Fairly polished performance tonight, definitely a bit of a makeover going on with Woosha atm, not that that's a bad thing.

I will throw this out there for what it is worth. Had a couple of conversations during the week which the topic was the coach. First one was from someone who has some contacts within the club who said Worsfold will be gone at the end of the year regardless. May want to head home as his family is already back in Perth.

From a different source who is very reliable I got there will be 2 more coaching changes at the end of the season. Would not name clubs but he has been 90% on the money as far as info I have gained from him in the past. Would be thinking it is the Saints and us.

As a side note Sam McClure on SEN the other morning put his neck right out saying Brad Scott will be coaching next season. Hope it is not us.
Why don't you rate Scott?

Can anyone give a summary of his 360 interview?
Unsurprisingly he said next to nothing.

We’re not building a team to win a final, we’re building a team to win a flag. They didn’t press him on this such as whether he made a recent shift to play more young blokes in place of Myers, Bags etc. Which they should have.

Positional moves such as Hooker forward or McKernan into the ruck aren’t straightforward because you’re always giving up something in one area, and that could hurt you. Example was Hooker out of the backline.

It was always going to be a fluff interview because they framed it as a happy story that we've won 4 of the last 5.

Rather keep Worsfold than Brad Scott also don't want Ratten. I'm sure he'll be a better coach second time round but I rather go with some one younger or untried that's recently retired like,Caracella,Mitchell or even Rutten

I wouldn't bother. He said nothing of interest. It was mostly dorothy dixers about the coaching biz in general. Was mildly annoying a few times when he tried to expand on an answer he was cut off by others.
Yeah they were shocking like that last night, like Huddo just wanted to talk to his Geelong mate and couldn't help himself cutting Woosha off.

That's probably what happens when you give fu** all 99% of the time. The media are only interested in John when he is on the verge of being sacked. There's no story in his ramblings about chemistry and how its his first year again.
